Meghan McCain is following in her father's Media darling footsteps, by doing what the OLM loves Republicans to do criticize the party. Once again Meghan McCain, the RNC's own Paris Hilton, takes great pride in being called a RINO.... Only by her own admission, she was never really a Republican in the first place... Now the Bloggette has decided she's all grown up and is taking on Conservatives and has called out Ann Coulter by name in her recent column at the Daily Beast, "My Beef With Ann Coulter".
It is no secret that being a Republican isn’t the most hip political stance a person can take right now. President Obama has successfully established himself as the hippest politician around. You know you’re big when Katy Perry wears a dress with your face on it to host the MTV Europe Music Awards. To my fellow Republicans: I’m sorry, I wish I could be more positive about the current “hipness” of our party. But being a Republican is about as edgy as Donny Osmond. Granted, being “hip” is not a reason to join a political party, or a reason to agree with its ideals. But it is a way to get the attention of a generation—or, more specifically, my generation.
What was she thinking when she said Hillary Clinton was more conservative than my father during the last election?
To make matters worse, certain individuals continue to perpetuate negative stereotypes about Republicans. Especially Republican women. Who do I feel is the biggest culprit? Ann Coulter. I straight up don’t understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time. But no matter how much you or I disagree with her, the cult that follows Coulter cannot be denied. She is a New York Times best-selling author and one of the most notable female members of the Republican Party. She was one of the headliners at the recent CPAC conference (but when your competition is a teenager who has a dream about the Republican Party and Stephen Baldwin, it’s not really saying that much).
Coulter's most aggregious offense appears to be stating that Hillary was more Conservative than Meghan's Dad. Coulter's superb use of hyperbole aside, this statement wouldn't have matter if Mitt Romney was on the Ticket. This leaves me with just one question, Who the Hell Cares What Meghan McCain thinks? The girl voted for John Kerry.
Yes. John Kerry. Even 10% of registered Democrats couldn't bring themselves to vote for the helmet headed traitor, but it didn't stop lil' Meghan McCain the Maverick! Kerry testified against his Fellow American soldiers, calling them rapists and murderers. Most Americans were offended by Kerry's tossing of another's awarded ribbons, while clinging to his own for political gain. But not Meghan McCain, even though her father, John McCain is one of the most famous Vietnam Veterans, and certainly our most documented Prisoner of War. Apparently that didn't bother, the younger McCain as much as the media generated rumors surrounding George W. Bush and the 2000 election. Bothered me. Of course I actually read the Swift Boat Veterans book, maybe she should just ask her Dad.
After watching Meghan McCain run to any microphone to "Confess" she voted for Kerry, just after her Dad won the primary, she also wanted the World to know that she wasn't like 'Other Republicans'...She told the LA Times she was an Independent, while Politico reports she may have actually been a Democrat in 2004.
During the election, Meghan portrayed herself to any and all media outlets as the Young face of the McCain campaign, thus the GOP. She wrote on her blog, did numerous interviews for both TV and Print. She wrote a Children's book about her Dad. Meghan was the talk to the Town for most of the campaign season, she brought a spot of excitement to her father's Dull campaign. That was until September, when America met Sarah Palin, no longer was Meghan McCain the only girl at the Dance. I'm guessing that's when the trouble started, and of course the leaks...Even the very liberal Wonkette questioned McCain's antics in her piece... "Is Meghan McCain Cool or Just a Brat?"
Post election, Ms. McCain has forcefully remained mum on the Sarah Palin stories...telling several interviewers that she wouldn't discuss the matter...Hmmm, Do I smell a Book deal in the Works? The Princess of Political Media Whoredom is probably scribbling notes with smiley faces as you read this, about the "totally uncool way that Palin took her spotlight"....
And in this no doubt pending Book release we can glean such insights as
Republican party has to have a message that's simple that goes out. Hope and change was something that really stuck with my generation. It's something that's on bumper stickers and t-shirts. And it's something that was easy for people to understand.as Reported by Polito from an ABC interview
Meghan thinks it's all about being "Hip", and she doesn't think the GOP is. Therefore she feels the need to assure everyone...'I'm not like them..., I'm cool!' In an interview with GQ magazine, McCain attempted up her "Hipness Quotatient"by expressing her love for the Morally corrupt MTV show, Tila Tequila.
From the article...
On TV she’s currently riveted by MTV’s A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. “It’s a bisexual-dating show!” she cries. “It’s hilarious!”
(It is taking great restraint not to go off on a tangent about my issues with Tila Tequila and shows like it on MTV, suffice it to say the target demographic for MTV is Teens ages 12-17 and I don't think programming soley focused on Sexuality (Hetro,Homo or Bi) is appropriate. Putting soap box away now.)
With Meghan McCains insatiable desire to hang out with the Cool Crowd in Political Circles, it wouldn't surprise me to find a "Yes,We Can!" sticker on her car, a hybrid, no doubt. In all of Ms. McCain's chattering she has given us one piece of advice that is worth following...
In a rare moment of maturity, McCain wrote:
I am not suggesting that extreme conservatism wasn’t once popular, nor am I suggesting I should in any way be any kind of voice for the party. I have been a Republican for less than a year.
Here's a Novel idea, Ms. McCain, if you don't want to be a "voice", then Stop Talking. I'm certain Meghan McCain will join Kathleen Parker, on the short list of the OLM's favorite Republicans, but I'm hoping her 15 minutes are almost up....
