Another “progressive” McCain

Meghan McCain, who blogs on The Beast in such cerebral pieces as Why Republicans Don’t Get the Internet, My Beef With Ann Coulter and Quit Talking About My Weight, Laura Ingraham, has lassoed a high six-figure book contract.

To get a glimpse of Ms. McCain’s mindset, The Beast carries such articles as The Impressive Hypocrisy of the GOP and GOP R.I.P. But then again, she freely admits voting for John Kerry, and only registered as a Republican last Father’s Day as a gift for Dad during his presidential campaign, so should we be surprised?

Besides blaming her father’s failed campaign for putting her “dating life” (aka “libido”) on life support, she penned a children’s picture book about her father titled, My Dad, John McCain, published to coincide with the primary election.

Her latest effort will “explore what it means to be a progressive Republican in the party today,” and “delve into what it means to love the Republican Party, while not always fitting in.”

She will also “touch on topics ranging from what the party needs to do to attract others like her, to the importance of technology in reaching out to younger voters, to what needs to be done to keep young people passionate and involved in politics in the future.”

The blockbuster is scheduled to be published in the spring of 2010.

We can’t wait.

    I can wait. As if Amnesty John has not already destroyed the Republican party by his divisiveness and polarization politics, his daughter now comes along for the coup de grace. Spare me another McCain, PLEEESE!

  2. Jana Simmons says:

    There already is a party to “attract others like her.” It’s called the Democrat Party.

  3. Zelph says:

    Actually it’s called the Democratic Party. Come to the light, Meghan.

  4. Chuck says:

    “Progressive?” Don’t you mean liberal? “Progressive” is THEIR preferred identifier these days. Let’s not fall into the trap of using their terminology to define them.

  5. Kathy says:

    Becoming a Republican to surprise her father doesn’t mean much since John McCain is a Democrat (oops RINO). Looks like RINO’s run in the family – obviously neither know what a true Conservative is. As usual it’s all about ME (McCain).

  6. RA says:

    Ms. McCain – a living illustration of “it’s not what you do, it’s who you know.” Strictly for those who can’t be bothered with making a name for themselves.

  7. Jason says:

    In the UNclassiest of terms, the juvenile and narcissistic Ms. McCain actually told Laura Ingraham to “Kiss my fat ass!” That proves she looks in the mirror at least occasionally.

  8. Night Owl says:

    The politically-astute-enough-to-get-a-book-contact Meghan McCain also said she had never heard of Laura Ingraham. .What an embarrassment!
