Back in early 2007, about 20 months before the last presidential election, I wrote a post for my blog called "Why I Can't Trust John McCain." I wasn't alone. A Google search on the phrase "I don't trust McCain" reveals a couple thousand hits.
I grew tired of McCain fighting our agenda, voting against tax cuts, bowing to global warming loons, insulting Christian leaders, ganging against us with his liberal "Gang of 14" and passing useless laws with liberals like Senator Russ Feingold. -- Not to mention snubbing CPAC.
The press has discovered its latest straw man to make Republicans look bad. Get ready to see a lot more of Meghan McCain.Republican Party traitor
Let's face it -- he was victorious in the Republican primaries because his was the only face we recognized. Obviously we didn't fully support him in November. Years ago I wrote several newspaper columns asking him to switch parties, but like the drunken guest at a barbecue he just won't leave.
Now comes his daughter Meghan McCain, proving the old adage that the poop doesn't fall far from the pig's rear end, Meghan has joined her father in the Republican bashing business.
Writing on The Daily Beast, an Internet blog, she takes on author Ann Coulter. She says she "straight up doesn't understand" Coulter (probably all those big words Ann uses). She labels Ann's followers part of a "cult" (Meghan must be reading the papers -- that's how media refers to our whole party!). She takes a swing at CPAC, too (chip off the old block, that Meghan).
What bothers me now is that media will hence forth roll out Meghan McCain as a "Republican" and a "conservative," when she is really nothing more than nepotism mixed with "hot-blondedness" -- the two real reasons she is appearing on television. The press has discovered its latest straw man to make Republicans look bad. Get ready to see a lot more of Meghan McCain.
