Sen. John McCain’s daughter says that her father is “depressed” and “frustrated” with the impact the “hyper-conservative wing of the party” is having on national politics, including on the recent government shutdown.

“We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” Meghan McCain said in a joint interview with ABC and Yahoo News.

Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show “Raising McCain,” said the last time she can remember her father was so depressed about the state of politics was after his failed 2008 presidential bid.

“He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden,” the 29-year-old said. “The way he’s talking about it, how he’s never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office.”
------
Mr. McCain announced this week that he is flirting with running for a sixth term in the Senate, a move that would make the 77-year-old a target of tea party activists, who think he has sold out conservatism and is part of the problem in Washington.

Some big GOP donors say that Mr. McCain is right to push back against tea party.

Ms. McCain, though, said she has reservations about her father seeking another term.

Cry me a river!  He's just pouting because he's made an ass of himself and the young guys are not "wacko birds."

McCain helped to create the political atmosphere in DC, and now, the chickens are coming home to roost. He better quit before his depression becomes chronic.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Finally, the years in the Hanoi Hilton are fragmenting his thinking.  I wonder if, when he looks at a commiecrat, he isn't seeing the North Vietnamese in his mind, sort of like the Stockholm syndrome.   :shrug:  I think the demanding natures, the nastiness, the threats, the lies are typical of what he saw for those years.  Don't get me wrong, I have no use for the old geezer, but he did suffer some serious mental and physical abuse. :bash:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
