Cindy McCain’s two worst days


Watch Meghan McCain on CNN.

(CNN) - It was a long and grueling presidential campaign, but two days were particularly hard for Cindy McCain.

In an interview with CNN, daughter Meghan Mcain said the two worst days for her mother were Election Day and October 17 - the day the New York Times published a lengthy and largely critical profile of Mrs. McCain.

"The New York Times profile of her came out which I think was a hard day for everyone," Meghan McCain said. "It was a very, in my opinion, not a very good article. It was actually being used in journalism classes as an example of the poor profile on someone, no one ever interviewed her. And it was a very hard thing to read."

    Being wealthy does not shield a person from being hurt.

    Yet more examples of the "tolerant" Left. You hate-filled little thugs need some reality beaten into you.

    " If Michelle was a ex- drug user and thief the media would have destoryed her"

    Then why didn't they destroy Barrack Obama??

    Dimwit-why didn't they destroy Bush? Did you forget that the decider was a coke head as well as a drunk?

    Would this be the new Lost Election Barbie?
    I hear it comes with 7 – scratch that – an unconfirmed amount of dream houses, no concept of the value of a dollar, and unearned respect.

    If there was anything positive to say about this pathetic excuse of a woman ... it would be printed! She is an adultress ... what would you expect to be written or said about her?

    man oh man...we have talk show host wishing that our president fails at everything and we have folks here wishing terrible things to happen to the McCains. As a person that's in the middle I've seen enough venom on both the left and the right that it makes me glad I fit into niether catagory. I hope we can unite behind our president even if you didn't vote for him, but that seems to be a hard task at the least.

    Sorry Fairness in Media. If Conservative Talk Radio had such a huge fan base, they would be more competitive, at best at least a viable threat to mainstream news media stations such as CNN, MSNBC, etc. Conservative Talk Radio spews hatred, divisiveness and bigotry.

    I am appalled at the likes of Rush, Sean and Michael Savage. America and Beautiful can never live up to its promise as long as you have people like these filtering our minds with this useless attempt at news/journalism.

    Hey Cindy, why don't you go cry along with Sarah and seek consolation in the company of another spoiled and pampered whiner.

    Life is tough, get a helmet – we all had to!

    Meghan must be taking que from Rush. NYT tried to get her mother to interview for the story by she wouldn't so Meghan is crying that they "did interview her" sounds like a typical Rush Spin.

    Given me a break.

    I did not vote for John McCain. I was appalled at the NYT article on Cindy McCain. It was largely inaccurate, small-minded and belonged in the gossip columns of wannabe's.

    Just because the NYT as a newspaper supported Obama is no reason to make personally hurtful remarks and adopt a nasty tell-all style about, not toward the candidate, but toward the spouse of the candidate, they opposed.

    It took me a long time to read the NYT again, and now I do so with a jaundiced eye.

    I am a democrat. Howvever, I don't think half of Obama's supporters really listen to what he says. He is not a mean sprited guy and disagrees without being disagreeable. We need to try and follow our new leader example. Please stop with all the nasty comments and disagree like adults

    Cindy McCain and any other politicians wife, etc. KNOWS that if you do something like steal and abuse drugs and lie about it OR enter into an AFFAIR with a man you KNOW is still legally married. YOU HAVE NO INTEGRITY, and these acts will come back and bite you over and over!!!

    Being a RICH girl or woman does NOT excuse you for doing "dirty and dishonest deeds". Everything that GOES AROUND, ALWAYS COMES AROUND." Hello.

    GOD never sleeps and Cindy McCain with ALL her millions lack the integrity and honor she obviously so desperately seeks by way of her daughter Meghan speaking on her behalf.
