Meghan McCain dishes sexy politics to Jay Leno (Video)


Meghan McCain almost overdosed on Xanax before the presidential election. She has "stripper hair." She cried when she learned Sarah Palin was on dad John McCain's ticket. The Secret Service agents are not hot, she says. They are bald and old and cranky.

(Scroll down to check out the video.)

The Meghan McCain Show hit late night Tuesday when she stopped by Jay Leno's set to talk about her new book "Dirty Sexy Politics." And the blond chatterbox offered up an irrepressibly charming take on her view of the 2008 elections.

The might-have-been-first daughter shared behind-the-scenes tidbits, such as the time she flashed Secret Service agents, and dished on how she really felt about Palin.

"My initial reaction was 'Who the hell is Sarah Palin?'" she said of finding out about her father's vice presidential nominee.

Her nickname for the vice presidential pick was Ticking Time Bomb, after this Beck song:

Palin is not the only one to receive heat from McCain. When Leno teases McCain about the length of her book, she snaps back, "That's a jerk thing to say!"

McCain has mastered the skill of keeping a smile on even during her sharpest barbs.

She also manages to weigh in on the lighter side of political fame. She discusses the Snookie-John McCain Twitter love fest and why she finds President Obama sexy. (Her reasoning: "I like men!")
