Cindy McCain blasts Glenn Beck

(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.

"Glenn, you are no rodeo clown," she said. "They are decent and nice. You aren't."

Beck might count two McCains with hard feelings since Meghan McCain later retweeted her mother's comments to over 107,000 followers. Cindy McCain has just under 6,000. Later, Meghan McCain sent a tweet of her own: "Does anyone know if Glenn Beck has daughters?"

Beck announced his split with Fox News in April, but will continue to develop and produce a variety of television projects to air on the channel, according to a joint statement. His daily show will end later this year.

    She's right, he's no Rodeo Clown.....he's just a clown. A sad clown. But he is proof that hate & false information is a big seller in this country and is a good example of canabalistic capitalism in it's more virile state. "Sell anything that makes you money, no matter how bad it is for the country". History will not reflect well on he and his ilk who have done more to damage this country than any other group I can think of.

    Such sour grapes because Beck calls her husband what he is. A RINO opportunist that wants to limit our political free speech via that god awful McCain Feingold incumbent protection act.

    So sick of these political wives that think that anyone cares what they have to say because their husbands (not themselves) have done something with their lives. I understand that they are a part of the whole package, but no one elected you Cindy – so we don't care! Get back in the kitchen!

    Rush Limbaugh should be considered the same as Glenn Beck. I do not see why people listen to a program that constantly airs negative comments about Obama (whom I did not vote for), and also negative news about our country as they happen. I know political radio shows whether they are for the Left or the Right have their own agendas to persue, but how can anyone listen to the same drumbeat day after day? I suppose there are Left leaning programs somewhere in the country. I think they should work toward national unity as well.

    Why can't one of these sane Rs run for office? Or, any sane R for that matter!
