Politico-Meghan McCain Says Christine O'Donnell Is "A Nut Job"

(Story reported by Abby Phillip for Politico)

“Dirty, Sexy Politics” author Meghan McCain slammed Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell on ABC's “This Week” on Sunday, calling her candidacy “scary.”

"I speak as a 26-year-old woman, and my problem is that, no matter what, Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," McCain told host Christiane Amanpour. "She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business."

McCain said that O'Donnell's lack of experience sends the wrong message to her generation that “one day you can just wake and run for Senate, no matter how [much of] a lack of experience you have.”

"I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she's seen as a nut job," McCain said.

“And it scary for me for a lot of reasons."
