gay sex with meghan mccain

the daughter of the former repubbblican candidate from the last presidential campaign (meghan mccain, not bristol palin) wants everybody to know that she's ready and willing to be a trouble-maker.

does it sound campy to say i love gay men?” asks meghan mccain, sipping an iced tea at the nouveau-chic hotel palomar in washington, d.c.’s dupont circle.
only if you sing it in a judy garland voice to the tune of "the one that got away," meghan.

she's boldly fighting for the unclaimed middle ground of the repubbblican party (that is to say, the logical, rational humanitarian positions firmly encounced in reality). out.com:

within weeks of starting a regular column for the daily beast, mccain flexed her newfound muscle by attacking the gop’s queen of mean, ann coulter -- “watching her is sometimes like watching a train wreck,” she wrote -- and dissing fellow gop twitterer karl rove, whom she branded a “twitter creep.” easy targets perhaps, but it was a smart way to position herself on the opposite side of the aisle. “i’d be flattered to be considered the anti–ann coulter, the anti–rush limbaugh,” she says.
we'd be happy to call her "anti coulter," only that would sound like we were related to her.

but it’s her position on gay marriage that has garnered mccain the most attention. in a speech to the log cabin republicans, she said that “old-school republicans” were “scared shitless” of the future and retreating further and further into an ultraconservative crouch.
it's interesting that the hardly-ever-right wingers dismiss the left's dismissal of sarah palin on the grounds that "we don't take her seriously because she's a girl," and yet they seem to be applying the same low standards to their condescending attitude towards the younger, cuter, mccain.

not surprisingly, mccain the younger has drawn poisonous quips from the party’s moralizers-in-chief, including conservative columnist laura ingraham, who dismissed her as a “plus-sized model” (“kiss my fat ass,” mccain retorted on an episode of the view), and rush limbaugh, who suggested that she follow arlen specter’s example and leave the gop. more surprising has been the scorn of liberal writers such as judith warner of the new york times, who called her colbert appearance “stupid” and “foolish.” much of this has to do with mccain’s slightly girlie, conversational speaking style, which lacks the spit and polish of professional pundits and occasionally strays into gauche phrases and pat formulations. yet for thousands of ordinary viewers, schooled in the language of facebook and twitter, that’s what makes her fresh and sympathetic. she has grown up in their world, and when she talks about her love of the scissor sisters and the yeah yeah yeahs or asks readers of her blog to write in with suggestions for her next tattoo (“so far mccain in gothic letters on the back of my neck is winning my unofficial survey”), she is talking their language. it turns out those old-school republicans are not only scared shitless of the future; they’re scared shitless of her.
we don't know if we would say that they are scared of her, or how much sh*t they have lost because of it, but we do know that the hard right proponents of the party (read: all of them) are continually decrying the centrist positions taken by mccain.

and perhaps that's why she's taking them. or, rather, perhaps that's why she's so loud about taking them. she's actually very much like every other repubbb pundit: willing to say publicly the things that people find outrageous in order to get lots of publicity. only this time, the people that find her outrageous are her own party. which is ironic. or too bad. or good. or confusing. or something.

meanwhile, over @ the new republic, james kirchik interviews meghan about his interview w/her in out.com:

here's what she had to say about joe the plumber:

yet even as the balance begins to shift, the old guard is still yapping in the foreground. shortly before mccain sat for this interview, samuel wurzelbacher, aka joe the plumber, gave an interview to christianity today in which he complained about “queers” and declared, “i wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.” unprompted, mccain rails against the man her father’s presidential campaign touted as an american everyman and made a showpiece in the weeks before the election. “joe the plumber -- you can quote me -- is a dumbass. he should stick to plumbing.”
meghan, dear, and you can quote us, joe is not a real plumber! he's not even named joe!

be that as it may (and it very well may be), since we believe that valid opposition is necessary for a healthy democracy, we welcome meghan's attempts, however valley-girl-esque, to bring rational thought back into the gop.
