Meghan McCain, who has chronicled her campaign travels alongside her father on her blog McCain Bloggette, is now reportedly penning a children’s picture-book about her father, Senator John McCain.
The 23-year-old aspiring first daughter has been updating diligently since 2007, posting photos of her parents goofing around on their private plane and even ones of herself wearing a keffiyeh, the supposed ‘terrorist symbol’ that chef Rachael Ray has recently been slammed for.
The currently untitled book will be published by Simon & Schuster in September and financial details of the deal have not been made public.
In a statement, Ms. McCain said:
In a 2007 profile of Ms. McCain, Salon writer Michael Scherer asked Senator McCain what he thought of his daughter’s blog. Here’s what he had to say,
"[It’s] very heavy. Some of it is hard for me to understand. A lot of heavy issues, you know. She’s having fun, I want her to enjoy the campaign. It’s once in a lifetime. And then I want her to get a job."
Hmm. Sounds familiar.
