(CNN)— Take the free-for-all nature of social media, add the oft-mean spirited commentary that punctuates political circles and you have a recipe for petty online smackdowns.
Conservative commentators Dana Loesch's and Meghan McCain's online back and forth devolved into an hours-long, Twitterverse brawl on the derogatory nature of (drumroll please)… political brawls.
(CNN) – New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s only response to Meghan McCain being “over” him is that he has no response.
In his monthly “Ask the Governor” session on the NJ101.5 radio station Wednesday night, Christie mostly fielded questions about the state’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy. But the questions briefly turned to Meghan McCain, daughter of former GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Meghan McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, explains to CNN's Piers Morgan why she's "over" fellow Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey.
(CNN) – An outspoken Republican moderate, Meghan McCain took to Twitter to express frustration with her party following a less-than-stellar night for the GOP.
"I don't need to do any soul searching about what the GOP is doing wrong, I knew what was wrong four years ago when my father lost. #evolve," she wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning after Republican nominee Mitt Romney was projected to lose the election to President Barack Obama Tuesday night and Congress would remain with Republicans controlling the House and Democrats the Senate.
(CNN) - Meghan McCain's taking it all off in a new ad.
The outspoken daughter of former Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain is appearing in a new public service announcement on the Style Network to warn against the dangers of skin exposure.
(CNN)- Cindy McCain isn't a fan of conservative host Glenn Beck. The wife of Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain tweeted her disdain for the departing Fox News pundit Wednesday saying, "I'm so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Enough vitriol and hate."
And if Beck was confused about his role on the network, which he's often equated with being an entertainer, Mrs. McCain sought to clear it up.
(CNN)-Call it a lovefest between a mogul and a McCain. In an interview for The Daily Beast on Thursday, possible GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and the daughter of 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain expressed mutual affection for one another.
Meghan McCain, a columnist for The Daily Beast, asked the real estate mogul if she could be hired onto Trump's campaign, in case there is a campaign, to which Trump responded, "I love it!"
Washington (CNN) – Add Meghan McCain to the list of those who are not looking forward to HBO's upcoming adaptation of "Game Change" - the 2009 book by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin that provided an inside look into the last presidential race.
In her regular column Friday for the website The Daily Beast, McCain suggests she found the book itself reviling and says she expects the movie to "crucify" her family and Sarah Palin.
Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.
Meghan McCain had some choice words for Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican who delivered a Tea Party response after the State of the Union address. The move was widely criticized by the media, Democrats and even some Republicans.
In an interview on MSNBC's "Last Word," McCain said that Bachmann is not a leader, and she is "no better than a poor man's Sarah Palin."
(CNN) – Tuesday's arrival of Sarah Palin's new book brought new criticism from her former running mate's daughter, Meghan McCain.
"The way she is running for president is either sheer genius or ultimate insanity," McCain wrote Tuesday.
