(CNN) - Meghan McCain, daughter of presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain, is trying her hand at being a children's author.
The publishing giant Simon & Schuster announced Wednesday that McCain, 23, will write a children's book about her famous father set to be published during the first week of September - the same week as the Republican Party's national convention in Minneapolis.
"I am truly excited about the opportunity to write a children’s book about my father, who is not only a fantastic dad, but also a great American," McCain said in a statement. "This book will offer children the unique opportunity to see the character building events that happened over his lifetime, experiences that led up to his current bid to become the future President of the United States."
Simon & Schuster said it will donate a portion of the proceeds from the book to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, an organization that aids military personnel and veterans who have brain injuries.
Meaghan McCain has already drawn attention for her writing this year - her campaign blog became a primary season phenomenon.
Wonder if she'll include anything about the Keating Five.
Oh boy, propaganda for the young!
She's hot, but Mccain still shouldn't be president.
Show us how great an influence he had on you by joining the Army and going to Iraq. Support your dad. YOU GO GIRL.
Why are you reporting this stuff?
While McCain sends other people's children off to Iraq to be maimed or killed, his daughter will be writing a children's book. Bush's daughter just got married. Does anyone see a pattern?
I can't wait to read the nasty comments from the Obamites.
How is this news?
I'd vote for her before I voted for her father. Atleast she intends to educate our children rather then kill more of them in a foreign country by leaving them there for 100 years because 'it's not important' when they come back.
And this is news ....................................
Good for you Meghan! The McCain family seems to be in touch with the real world. Their dad...well...he's a good man trying to be in touch. John McCain has a son in the Marines who served in Iraq. That means a lot to us with service ties.
Cowritten with Paris Hilton. The irony of the proceeds going to the vets who were maimed by her fathers politics is a nice touch.
There's a lot of this going around. Why do Republicans want to write children's books?
BIG WHIP CNN! Why is she any different from anyother candidate's kid? Chelsey Clinton played a major part in her mother's campaign. Why don't you put your resources to good use and do a report on something that truely effects this nation! You are really reaching with this story! Next you will be reporting on Cindy McCain's shopping sprees!
Dave in NC,
Exactly what I was thinking. Somehow I don't see the kids being able to grasp that. Although they are dealing with more and more adult issues these days.
How does that work? "and then little Johnny was sent to fight for his country, but he was tortured severely for years, then Johnny came home to find his wife crippled from a car accident, so he saw other women behind her back. Then one day, Johnny met Cindy, called her a c$&t for everyone to hear. And they all lived happily ever after... Until America was destroyed for letting its stupidity run rampant."
Dave in NC: that was great .. lol
Its Good That You Are Writing A Book For Kids! But Since I Dont Want My Children Drafted For War With Iran I Wont Be Voting For Your Dad!
Has this book deal been vetted? Did Daddy call a friend at the publishers? Getting a book by an unknow author published in 3 months must be a record. Do the publishers have questionable mortgages we should look into? Where is the other portion of the book sale going, increasing the trust fund? See how McSame likes it when the shoe is on the other foot.
Maybe she could read it to Bush
Gotta love having a famous dad, because I'm sure she wouldn't get word one published otherwise.
Vote Obama '08
