Meghan McCain, the daughter of Arizona Senator John McCain, is returning as guest co-host of ‘The View,’ according to the New York Post.

The outspoken, and rather liberal, blonde will appear for a three-day stint to fill-in for the notoriously conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who’s on maternity leave. Hasselbeck gave birth August 9th to her third child, Isaiah Timothy, who joins siblings Grace, 4, and Taylor, 20 months.

McCain, a blogger and columnist for Tina Brown’s The Daily Beast, previously appeared as a guest host in March and April of this year.

She grabbed a lot of headlines at the time for telling conservative radio host Laura Ingraham–who referred to McCain as plus-sized–to ‘Kiss My Fat Ass!’

Look for McCain at the hot-topic table on September 9th, 10th and 11th. Hasselbeck is expected to return in mid-October.
