During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Sen. John McCain laughed off his daughter Meghan's complaint that his campaign hurt her love life.
In a blog post on The Daily Beast, Meghan McCain wrote about the troubles she's had finding romance post-November. "The election killed my personal life," she writes. "I am not only turned off by people who voted for Barack Obama, but I am also turned off by people that voted for my dad--or more so, obsessive supporters of my dad."
Meghan McCain also complained of her mother's loyal fans: "One extreme fan of my mother's recently told me I could be 'his Cindy.' And then asked me if I ever wore pearls because they probably would look as good on me as they do on my mother. No, I'm not kidding. Any guy that has a fetish for older women in pantsuits and large pearls obviously only finds my last name attractive about me."
Asked by host Chris Wallace to comment, McCain laughed and said: "I have to say, I have a beautiful daughter; I have very bright prospects for her professionally and socially." He added, after being questioned by Wallace, that he won't be arranging a "planned marriage."
"I'm proud of all my children," he added. "From time to time they may do or say something that might be slightly not what I would do or say, but that's what young people are all about."
