Meghan McCain Attacks Palin, Tea Party

Monday, February 8, 2010

Click here to watch Meghan McCain on ABC's "The View" earlier today. Here are some highlights:

*What Tom Tancredo said at the Tea Party convention about Obama voters supposedly being illiterate buffoons is "innate racism, and I think it's why young people are turned off by this movement."

*"[R]evolutions start with young people, not 65 year old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word 'vote' in English."

*Regarding Sarah Palin's call for war with Iran: "You should never go to war unless its the absolute last circumstance."

*On Sarah Palin giving a pass to Rush Limbaugh for using the word "retard," but calling for Rahm Emanuel's resignation for doing the same thing: this epitomizes "exactly what is wrong with politics today."

*On Tea Party rhetoric: "[it] will continue to turn off young voters, and anybody who says different is smoking something."

*Finally, when asked about the possibility of her father's 2008 running mate throwing her hat in the ring for 2012, Meghan McCain said she would discuss it after her book comes out in August. That's one I'll definitely look forward to reading!
