Meghan McCain On Palin’s Double Standard: “Exactly What Is Wrong With Politics Today”

Meghan McCain was a guest host on The View today when Barbara Walters brought up a number of political issues in the news surrounding Sarah Palin — specifically the use of the term “retarded” by Rahm Emanuel and Rush Limbaugh. Palin called out Emanuel for using the term, but gave Limbaugh a pass because he was “using satire.” McCain jumped all over this, calling it “exactly what is wrong with politics today…we can’t placate and say Democrats can say one thing and Republicans can say another thing, its exactly, a perfect example of what is wrong in this country today.”

She then went on to criticize Tom Tancredo‘s remarks on Obama (and her father John McCain), which was very well received in the Manhattan studio where the show was being taped.
