Meghan McCain is many things. In the days after the campaign, she was put up as the face of a newer, younger, hipper Republican Party. Sure, she's mattressable, but beyond that, does she have anything to offer a conservative like me? Let's see, she hates the teabag movement. She favors gay rights (I am not anti-gay-rights, I m pro-civil rights, no one group deserves special rights). She can't tell the difference between original sources (Rham Emanuel saying liberals were "retarded") and secondary reporting (Rush Limbaugh quoting Emanuel). She is basically an empty-headed socialite who is, like Paris Hilton, famous only for being famous. She has nothing in her resume that makes me believe in her as an individual.
I believe that she is a Republican only because of her family, and once John passes on, she will probably switch parties. To that I say, fine. Go Ahead Meghan. Stop pretending and go be a Democrat. Trust me, you will fit right in since I doubt your professed belief in conservative fiscal principles is very genuine. You will fit in with all the other showy socialites. Meanwhile, those of us who stand on principles will be rid of your poisonous influence. And after the sad day that your father does leave this world, you will, thankfully, fade into the obscurity from which you came.
