Meghan McCain is heading back to "The View."
The divisive daughter of Sen. John McCain - Democrats kind of dig her softer side of the right wing ways; Republicans kind of don't - will return to guest host the chat show for a three-day stint, starting on Sept. 9. She's stepping in for famously conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is out on maternity leave.
McCain, who has her own blog and is a columnist for Tina Brown's The Daily Beast Web site, first appeared on "The View" as a guest in March, raising eyebrows when she said that conservative radio host Laura Ingraham's comments about her weight - she mocked her as being a plus-size model who couldn't get onto "The Real World" - were "terrible" and made her want to pull a Tyra Banks by saying, "Kiss my fat ass!" to Ingraham.
Her appearance proved to be popular enough that she was invited back in April as a guest host for two days, filling in when Barbara Walters and Hasselback were out. Whoopi Goldberg told the perky blonde that she "can come back and play with us any time."
