(Newser) – Meghan McCain sounds very, very tired of Sarah Palin. In her new Daily Beast column, McCain says she doesn't think her dad's former VP candidate is actually going to run for president and is doing the GOP a disservice by distracting attention from the real candidates. "I think what we are seeing this summer is Palin in panic mode—and let’s face it, she should be panicking," writes McCain. "It’s a new election cycle, and there are new kids in town that could very well start stepping on her Palin brand."

And if Palin truly hasn't decided whether to run, that might even be worse. "With each passing day, Sarah Palin looks more and more like a confused woman who can’t decide which way to go," writes McCain. "The last thing our country needs right now is a president who can’t make up her mind or make tough decisions." Click for the full column.
