On Sunday, John McCain’s daughter-turned-pundit Meghan McCain dropped a now-infamous dis of Delaware Senatorial candidate–and staunch conservative–Christine O’Donnell.
“Well, I speak as a 26-year-old woman and my problem is that, no matter what, Christine O’Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office,” McCain told anchor Christiane Amanpour. “She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business….I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she’s seen as a nutjob.”
Among many other problems here (as Doug Powers noted for Michelle Malkin, “In that case, O’Donnell should forget about the Senate and run for President”), is a fact nobody else seems to have noticed:
Meghan McCain is 25, not 26. Her birthday is October 23. What does this mean? Either she doesn’t know her own age or she figured her bithday was only a week away, so she decided to go ahead and bump up her age a year.
Really? Who does this after third grade? She wants to be taken seriously as a political commentator, but she’s introducing her remarks with the equivlent of, “I’m seven and three-fourths years old! It’s almost like I’m eight!”
That should tell us all we need to know about the maturity of Meghan McCain.
