Sigh. I didn’t want to do it but after watching Meghan McCain and Dana Loesch exchange comments on twitter this week and Meghan taking great exception to Dana for “questioning her intelligence” (cough, cough), the thoughts were running amuck in my head and my fingers were aching for my keyboard, desperate to relieve me of my feelings on this woman-child.
I really, really dislike Meghan McCain. She puts a bad name on young, blonde Republican women all over the country, and this blonde Republican takes great exception to it. Granted, while her washed out political views, her faux conservatism, her watered down morality are about as appealing to me as her hair weaves, we have to show a bit of mercy knowing that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Her dad is a RINO, her mom is a RINO, and that means they make little baby RINO’s.
Meghan McCain was forced onto all of us during the last presidential election. I remember watching a clip of her on The View babbling about…like…how she…like, totally…like became a Republican as a “birthday gift” for her father. I know the depth of that is astounding, but after listening to her for a few minutes, you quickly realize she does a lot of swimming in the shallow end of the pool. Having to put up with her valley girl act and hear about her Twitter tantrums during the entire campaign was about as entertaining as a root canal. And now, her new book being foisted upon the public wouldn’t gain a moment of traction if she didn’t take advantage of the opportunity to opine on Sarah Palin, allowing her another 15 minutes. She’s the brief spark, attaching herself as long as possible to a star, with a steely determination to get as much twinkle for herself out of it as possible.
My problem with Meghan McCain is not that she tries so hard to fit into the celebrity crowd while still falling short of the D-list. It’s not the fact that she strangely reminds me of a faded copy of Paris Hilton…famous for what? A last name? It’s not even the ditzy, bobble head act…that I’m hoping is just an act, but fearing it isn’t. It’s the revolting way with which she forces herself on stage as a representative for Republicanism, and specifically has anointed herself as the voice of young Republicans. She is pro-choice, she’s anti-family values and pro-gay rights, against preaching abstinence, and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t even know what the word “fiscal” means. So, she has decided to describe herself as a “Progressive Republican” which begs the question, why be a leach to OUR party? Why not become a “Moderate Democrat?”
She’s dissed the Tea Party, calling them “racist old people” on The View. Proving that she hasn’t looked further than her false eyelashes at what the Tea Party is all about, who it consist of, and the fact that it is part of the new energy of the Republican party.
We would never have heard of Meghan McCain if she weren’t the original Roadkill’s daughter, if she didn’t tout herself as a liberal Republican, always standing ready to bash her own team. Slamming Conservatives is always an easy way for anyone to get to the front of the line, to get your 5 minute interview, and to guest spot on The View. She’s figured out exactly what the media wants and stands ready to deliver to prolong her time in the spotlight. My gosh, perhaps we should consider a blind date with Levi Johnston… the other parasite constantly attaching himself to live flesh in order to survive another day.
Just like her dad…she’s a sellout. Daddy McCain does it for personal and political expediency and the baby RINO does it to slither her way into the in-crowd by being a useful idiot for the left. Meghan, contrary to your belief, nobody really considers you the voice for the new generation of Republicans…but you are a darn great example for everything I hope my own daughters never grows up to be.
