Steve Doocy’s Son Asks Hardball Question

Reported by Priscilla - April 15, 2008 -

Today, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews hosted John McCain’s appearance at Villanova University on the Hardball College Tour at which students asked questions of the candidate. The second student to ask a question was Peter Doocy, a junior at Villanova, who turns out to be (drum roll please) the son of Fox&Friends host Steve Doocy. Rather than ask a boring question about Iraq or the economy, young Doocy said that he “was certain that he (McCain) had seen the clip of Hillary Clinton drinking whiskey with potential voters” and asked “do you think she’s finally resorted to hitting the sauce just because of some unfavorable polling?” Doocy then finished with a truly powerful and insightful “hardball” question when he asked McCain “if you’d care to join me for a shot.”

McCain, taken aback, babbled about how people should do things that they enjoy and that he enjoys sports and appreciates the athletes at Villanova. Matthews remarked that the questions asked by Doocy and the previous student were “wise ass.”

Comment: Talk about the “chip off the old block.” With his ability to get right into tabloid mode, he has a future at Fox. I do wonder what Mr. And Mrs. Happy would say about his – ah – seeming enthusiasm for imbibing!!!!! Party on Dude!!!!
