Sen. McCain's daughter, pictured, is speaking out on the impact of her father's latest presidential campaign on her personal life.

(CNN) — Meghan McCain says that "nothing kills my libido quite like discussing politics" — and that the presidential election "killed my personal life."

"OK, maybe killed is a bit of an exaggeration," she wrote in a blog post for The Daily Beast published Monday. "But it does seem to be on life support. Of all the things people warned would happen post-election, no one ever said anything about how complicated dating would become. Especially if your dad loses the election. There are things that have been difficult, but nothing quite as tough as dating. I fear the election has destroyed my ability and desire to date. Now, I cannot say at any point in my life that I have been very good at dating. But I have become something I used to despise: people who let politics dictate his or her attraction to someone."

She said one fan of her mother, Cindy McCain, recently told her she could be "his Cindy," and asked if she ever wore pearls like her mother did. "Any guy that has a fetish for older women in pantsuits and large pearls obviously only finds my last name attractive about me," she wrote.

I dont' see why. She's pretty hot.
I think her dad's... well... nevermind that. She's a hottie. She's intelligent, even if she IS on the wrong side of the issues, and if her love really wanted to be in her life, he'd be patient.

Sorry Mehgan. Good luck.

What fascinates her?

By the way Larry, I know this is a kids show, but someone shoudl inform Mz. McCain that what that guy said was highly inappropriate... Whena guy asks a girl abotu a pearl necklace he isn't actually refering to pearls....

She shoudl prosecute him for sexual harassment.

No, I'm not joking.

Some people think too much about themselves, and even losing the elections don't bring them back on earth.

She's so full of it, it's a shame.

WHY DO ALL THESE IMPORTANT ISSUES HAVE TO BE LIKE A JERRY SPRINGER FIGHT? WHY CAN'T PEOPLE BE RESPECTFUL IN EXPRESSING THEIR VIEWS? WHETHER IT'S SO AND SO ON STEROIDS OR SO AND SO ON LORTABS AND XANAX JUST TALK ABOUT THE ISSUES. SOME OF US HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN.
