Meghan McCain Shares Her Dad with Other Kids

Meghan McCain has announced plans to publish a children's book about her dad, just in time for Father's Day. The book will be out in September.

In a story about patriotism and tenacity, the 23-year-old daughter of a maverick follows Daddy John's life as a Navy brat, through five-and-a-half years as a POW in Vietnam, all the way to the Republican convention where he will be nominated for president.

Meghan can now add author to a resume that already includes blogger; She keeps an online diary of her experience on the campaign trail at McCain Blogette.

Do you think this biography-turned-children's book is a blatant campaign public relations tactic, or a sweet Father's Day gift that all of American's children can cherish? Would you read McCain's biography to your children as a bedtime story?

That is true janneth, and I actually cook more than 75% of our meals. Partly because I'm a better cook, but also because I have a more flexible schedule, so I can be home to cook.

undave, true or false: you cook at least 50% of your family's meals.

I have to admit the poor dress choice was the first thing I thought when I saw this. And the second was the terrifying topic for a kid's book. And of course it's a PR campaign thing.

And John McCain gives his book royalties to charity.

The McCains are big on giving, though, so I wouldn't be surprised if Meghan is giving some of her earnings, as well.

She has broad shoulders, and the neckline emphasises the horizontal, IMO. I v-neck would probably be more flattering for her purportions. (IMO) ;)

I had heard the publisher, too. I didn't say it was the author.

"Part of the proceeds go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, so that's definitely a good thing." I heard that the publisher was going to donate proceeds, but not the author (yet). I didn't research it too much, so I could be wrong.

Cab, I don't think that Katie has any professional training as a chef, but I think that she has basically based her life around food/cooking. But, yeah, SO many people release cookbooks! WTF?! Dave, you are right- that dress IS unflattering.

I love her M and I think her dress is fine.

Satin is the hardest fabric to wear, hands down(I don't wear it and I'm pretty skinny). And the cut isn't helping either. But I get what you're saying Ca, my mother in (not) law bought the Seinfeld one and it didn't come out very good either. It feels like everyone is writing books though, like EVERYONE.

"It is probabl just me, but I don't like that style of dress. Not flattering at all." It's not just you, UD. Satin is *very* hard to wear...weird crinkles everywhere, weird lumps showing up that don't exist...just odd. cabaker--you should release a cookbook. I'd buy it. :)

It would be awesome if it was Pop Up Book. turn to the vietnam chapter and Boi-oi-oi-oing up pops McCain eating a bug, later on in the story you turn to the campaign page and Boi-oi-oi-oing theres mccain getting a prostate exam to prove he is healthy!

You know what irks me, whne my wife doesn't cook for me. I mean, Doesn't she know her place is in the kitchen (after she's worked 8 hours, of course)?

This is kind of off topic but somewhat related... You know what irks me, is people now who release cookbooks. What kind of cooking training does that Katie Lee Joel person have? Or Jessica Seinfeld? Why do these people think they can cook? Its like just anyone can release a cookbook now... it drives me nuts.

There's also a really cute part about John McCain voting for quorum on Senate resolution bill 437. Very inspiring.

I love checking to see if these domains we throw around are available. And fyi, this one is available, for only $3.99! ;)

I don't think that's a very flattering picture of her, either. I can't tell if its the dress or the way she's standing or what. But then again, we all know Citizen and Liberty get their pics from I kid, I kid.

I don't think thats sexist... but between the heels comment and now you saying you don't like "the style" of the dress because its not "flattering".... :ponder: I'm starting to wonder about you...
UnDave35 UnDave35 9 years
*Sexist Alert* It is probabl just me, but I don't like that style of dress. Not flattering at all. *End Sexist Alert*

From my understanding, it's biographical. It's called "Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope."
