McCain: Daughter Meghan “went over to dark side”

Speaking to Don Imus on the FOX Business Network, Sen. John McCain facetiously weighed in on his daughter Meghan’s recent career move as a contributor on MSNBC. It was, he said, an indicator that she’d gone to the “dark side.”

“She went over to the dark side I guess,” McCain said. “I am very proud of her. She’s feisty. Being over there she is going to have to have quite a bit of that. I’m sure she will fight for the things she and I believe in over there and I wish her every success.”

Meghan McCain — lacking her mother‘s grace and savoir-faire — joined the liberal network earlier this month and has since opined on the state of the GOP primary and Republican presidential candidates. Newt Gingrich isn’t fazed by criticism from Meghan McCain, that his campaign is just a “vanity project.”

“How would she have a clue?” asked the former Speaker of the House. 

Mitt Romney is probably trying to think of a gentlemanly way of sidestepping her stated support of his campaign.

The alphabet networks are becoming a haven for daughters of former presidents. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, works as a correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show. Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also joined the network earlier this month. 

Meghan McCain’s father never made it to the Oval Office, but he did his bit to assist Barack Obama to the plush office.

    maniacal moonbeam meghan mccain (i.e., rino traitor AMNESTY-JOHN’s lunatic-left b-tard kid and alter-ego) has given me a great idea. The lunatic-left shrieks in horror at the thought of putting water on the face of a terrorist (i.e., waterboarding) — even though shooting them in the face is A-OK . So let’s replace waterboarding with an even better way to get them to talk (and tell us things like the location of osama). Let a blind photographer (blind for his own protection) photograph the uggos of the lunatic-left naked including, of course, michelle “marie antoinette” obozo, rosie odonnell, wasserman schultz, janeane garofalo, sonia sotomayor, janet napolitano, joy behar, joanne kloppenburg, whoopi goldberg, corrine brown, claire mccaskill, maxine waters, elena kagan, oprah, rachel maddow, regina benjamin, etc. We’ll call this collection the “Bowsers of the Lunatic-Left”. While wearing blindfolds for their protection, the US military can then show these photos to the prisoners at Gitmo (you know, that place that obozo said he would close more than two years ago). One look at these and the terrorists will vomit their guts out AND tell everything they know. So it becomes a win-win situation: the “horrific” waterboarding is stopped (so the lunatic-left shoot-em-in-the-face crowd is happy) and the terrorists give up info to protect America (so American patriots are happy). LET’S DO IT !

    Ms. McCain’s been blogging for the leftwing Daily Beast where she’s taken aim at conservatives for some time. Papa Mccain didn’t say she’d gone over to the “dark side” then.

    So, off topic…but not so much…remember Mr. McCain’s escorting “down th’ aisle” so to speak, of a.g. eric holder…wwweeelll that just took another turn south:
    …remember that this WAS supposed to be th’ most transparent administration in American History?!?!? Ya’ gotta’ wonder what th’ young Megan (and her daddy) would/could say about this…

    But wait, I thought Meghan gave her daddy a gift by registering as a Republican, oops Progressive Republican. Daddy was certainly proud then. Dark side – the 2 have something in common.

    “I’m sure she will fight for the things she and I believe in over there and I wish her every success.”

    A weaker Republican Party must be at the top of their list. McCains ought to feel right at home at the liberal MSNBC. Liberalism is selling so poorly MSNBC fills half their time with jail lockup tv shows.
