I was inclined to disagree…

…but ole Joesix might be on to something here:

Meghan McCain is the future of the Republican party.

You might be saying, “Pistolero, are you outta yer gourd?” Well, not quite. Hear me out.

It’s quite clear that the Republican establishment doesn’t really give any more of a shit about the people than the Democrats do, as evidenced by, among other things, their ignorance of and thumbing their noses at the Tea Party — you know, the folks who by and large delivered them the House of Representatives in 2010 — and the anointing of Mitt Romney as the 2012 GOP presidential candidate. They’re just a bunch of spineless go-along-to-get-along do-nothings and have been since at least 1996. (Really, Bob Dole was the best of the GOP bunch that year?) I have said it before and I will say it again: Meghan McCain is little if anything more than a younger, better-looking version of her go-along-to-get-along father. And it doesn’t look like the Republicans are going to change their ways as far as this goes anytime soon. So in a way, he’s right.

However, I do beg to differ with this:

Conservatives are shooting themselves in the foot every time they attack her.

No they’re not, because Meghan McCain really isn’t a conservative. It seems that at every turn she attacks real conservatives and sucks up to flaming liberals. Sure, she and her supporters will cast it as being all maverick-y like her daddy, but it’s really just another way of trying to ingratiate herself with the people who have gotten this country into the mess it’s in. She has said she’s a conservative, but it strikes me that her words and actions to date have shown her to be anything but. Just like her father, she takes whatever ideological position will get her more influential friends and into the Beltway cocktail parties. Conservatives would be shooting themselves in the foot if they didn’t call her out as the poser that she is.

    Might be worth noting that the Mavericks are a bunc of Democrats. 😉 Not exactly a family name any Republican ought to be calling on. (Though they did give us that nifty church bell all those years ago.)

    From the IMDB, of all places:
    “Originally planned to become a music journalist and interned at “Saturday Night Live” (1975) and Newsweek”.
    DUH…..ANYBODY who works at “News”week is a libtard.
