What could potentially be a fairly hot cat fight is brewin' within the GOP and if it goes down, we want a front row seat.

Meghan McCain, the daughter of Senator John McCain wrote a book (shocking, we know) detailing her experience as the daughter of a candidate in the 2008 presidential campaign.

The book, Dirty, Sexy Politics, reportedly bashes the elder McCain's pick of Sarah Palin as his running mate and Meggie-poo's more than happy to voice her disgust with his decision to anyone who will listen.

Last night, while pimping the book on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Meghan escalated the feud by subtly bashing Palin's daughter Bristol for being a teenage mom.

Check out the video after the jump.

Sounds like the precursor cat fight, if you ask us. And we all know how men look at a good ol' fashion cat fight:
