(Newser) – John McCain's daughter Meghan has ripped into right-wing media harpy Ann Coulter as a hate-spewing "train wreck." "I straight up don't understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing," wrote McCain, 24, in a Daily Beast column. She lashed Coulter as the "poster woman" for GOP extremists.

Coulter had no immediate comment, reports the New York Daily News. The shot-across-the-bow marked a new front in the fight between Republicans and thunder-stealing media pundits like Rush Limbaugh as the party struggles to forge a new identity. As for Barack Obama, McCain thinks he's the "hippest politician around."

and just how much do you know about this unknowing rich girl? Can you spout verse on what's wrong with her reasons or choices other than that you disagree with them. I've listened to her talk reason and moderation. I've heard her explanations for her opinions and views. Have you... no of course not... she was interviewed by Rachel Maddow, a fair and balanced interviewer from MSNBC, not your "fare and unbalanced" pundit like Hannity. Now you are complaining about her father (your party's candidate). You never give us cause as to why you think like you do, spouting unmitigated venom and vitriol. Now I understand, you're Ann Coulter herself; vicious, extreme and bitter!

I have to laugh at how quickly the libs glom onto a punk like Meggie, an unknowing little rich giirl who is trying oh so hard to be hip. You can be sure her daddy is the reason we are stuck with a dud like B. Hussein. Congrata Bud Brat!.
