Political Candidates Being Called "Mean Girls"
A New York Times columnist is calling Sarah Palin and other Republican candidates "Mean Girls." INSIDE EDITION has the details.
Are they really mean girls? New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has ignitied a firestorm by calling Sarah Palin and other stars of the GOP "Republican Mean Girls."
Dowd targets a group that includes candidates Meg Whitman of California, Linda McMahon of Connecticut, and Christine O'Donnell of Delaware. She doesn't pull any punches, writing that these women are "grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure, spread rumors that you were pregnant."
The cat fights continued over the weekend with John McCain's daughter Megan also laying into Christine O'Donnell, who is running for the U.S. Senate.
Megan McCain said, "Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office. She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business. She's seen as a nut job."
Other republicans went on the counter-attack. Emily Miller, former Press Secretary to Tom Delay said on Fox News, "Megan McCain, who's a self-proclaimed Republican spokesperson which none of us elected and the only thing she's got going for her is a trust fund and her dad."
But it wasn't just the girls getting nasty. Rand Paul, the republican candidate for the U.S.Senate from Kentucky, refused to shake Democrat Jack Conway's hand at the end of their heated debate Sunday night.
Their bad blood comes from a recent attack ad that highlighted Rand Paul's membership in a secret society during his college days.
The ad states, "Why was Rand Paul a member of a secret society that called the Holy Bible a hoax?"
Paul said to his opponent, "You just out and out lied because you have nothing to stand on. Run a race as a man!"
