(Newser) – Meghan McCain cried when she found out Sarah Palin was going to be her dad's running mate—and they weren't tears of joy, she told Jay Leno last night. "My initial reaction was, 'Who the hell is Sarah Palin?" McCain told the Tonight Show host. "Like the rest of the country, I had no idea who she was, and I was actually crying on the bus on the way to the rally."

McCain says she only found out her father had picked Palin an hour before she was due to go on stage with the vice presidential candidate at a campaign rally, the Huffington Post reports. "I remember being on stage and distinctly thinking, 'God, let her not have any skeletons in the closet. Please God.' And if you see any video footage of it, I looked panicked," said McCain, who labels Palin a "timebomb" in her new book Dirty Sexy Politics.

Meghan is a tasty little rich bitch. I'd like to see the Meghan - Bristol lovematch on pay per view.

Palin will probably eventually announce her candidacy for the presidency. It will also include the filming of a Fox TV reality show "Sarah Runs" , sponsored by a maker of running shoes and hosted by Meghan McCain. A new energy pill called the "Refudiater!" will be a co-sponsor. During a major debate of the candidates, Sarah perspires so much, the notes written on her hands drain off and she becomes distraught and leaves the debate. She then flees to Alaska to "rest and think" while doing some helicopter wolf shooting. A few days later, after meting with the Dahli Lama, Sarah announces her retirement from public life...when the reality show is completed.

The real reason Meghan McCain cried is this: She is about half Sarah's age, but the Gorgeous Governor looks twice as good as Meghan. That's gotta hurt.
