Meghan McCain Wants to Finish Off the GOP

I didn't know Meghan McCain was a genuine skank. Yeah, I'm up on Ms. McCain's wars with everybody who's somebody on the conservative right today, but I had no idea that her brand of "progressive GOP politics" includes posting tweets like this one:

And actually, I backed John McCain in 2008 (surprise!), so I normally wouldn't argue that he was out to kill the GOP.

No, I'm just spinning the title of this entry off the New York Post's piece from earlier today, "
Meghan McCain, Blonde Bomb Shell: John McCain Wounded the GOP; His Daughter Is Out to Finish the Job":
I liked Meghan McCain. In her faux hipster Urban Outfitter threads, she attempted to humanize her cantankerous, over-the-hill father during the presidential election with her "cute" bloggette. She recommended bands, shared playlists and posed cheekily in a controversial kaffiyeh that those crazy Columbia kids were wearing.

At this point, someone (maybe her mother?) suggested she should speak for the youngin' mavericks out there. She anointed herself head cheerleader on a one-woman squad, and went to work on her vision of a new Republican Party. A kinder, more gentle GOP where all everyone felt loved. In essence, one that would look more like an elephant in donkey's clothing.

The Daily Beast, Tina Brown's answer for those who thought the Huffington Post wasn't left-wing enough, gave her a weekly column and she was promptly booked on every Republican-hating show from "The View" to Bill Maher. Boy did she deliver -- a perfect underhand lob right over team liberal's home plate. With her bleached blond hair, heavy eyeliner and oodles of "umms" and "likes" she looked more like Lauren Conrad than Peggy Noonan.

Then came the blogs ... oh the blogs! Posts riddled with self-indulgent drivel and giggling suggestions on how bring more youth into the listless party fold. "Go Gay, GOP!" Each had one overarching theme: To win, the Republicans needed to be more like ... the Democrats.

"I don't know exactly what about me threatens them (Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter and Co.) so much, other than that people are listening to me," she writes in her latest cranium-inflating missive to the kids on the Internets. She brags that she has twice as many followers on Twitter as Malkin. "And trust me, Twitter is more of an indication of where young people are than books published." Books are so for old people!
Yeah, Twitter, where Meghan can brag about how she loves guys who're down with mofo!

I'm sending this post to Robert Stacy McCain (
The Other McCain) to see what kind of fisking he'll work up (if any) on Meghan's lastest splash in the news.

P.S. Folks know I have something of a bad-boy rep on the right, but boasting my mofo creds on Twitter isn't part of my repertoire!
