Fade in.

A very important looking man sits in a chair. A little blond girl scampers into his lap. The man looks lovingly at the girl.

“Hi, princess.”

“Hi Daddy!”

“I love you. You know that, right?”

“Yes Daddy.”

“You are my special little lady. You know that, right?”

“Yes Daddy.”

“And no matter how big you get, you will always be my little girl. You know that, right?”

“Yes Daddy.”

“And if one day you say something stupid on TV that might cost me some votes, I will throw you under the bus as soon as look at you. You know that, right?”

“Yes Daddy.”

“That’s my special little girl.”

Fade Out.

Meghan McCain got some buzz on Sunday by calling Christine O’Donnell a “nut job,” but on “GMA” today her dad didn’t take the bait.

“My daughter and I have very spirited conversations from time to time and it’s a lot of fun,” Sen. John McCain told me. “With all due respect to my daughter, the primary voters of Delaware chose Christine O’Donnell and she’s the candidate.”

Nice. I wonder if he backed up the Straight Talk Express over her just to make sure she wouldn’t get up.

Don’t worry John, I am sure she will forget all about it by Thanksgiving.
