Meghan McCain: We Need More Gay Republicans! By David Knowles Apr 13th 2009 10:00AM
Here's a question: Can Meghan McCain, the blog-a-lot daughter of Senator John McCain, help bring the Republican Party into the twenty-first century? Well, with her column at The Daily Beast, and during her many television interviews, she sure is giving it a go. Today's screed, for instance, attempts to light a fire under the Republican posterior on the matter of including gay rights in the party platform:
If the Republican Party has any hope of gaining substantial support from a wider, younger base, we need to get past our anti-gay rhetoric. As you can image, the road for gay Republicans hasn't been an easy one. Most find the words "homosexual" and "conservative" inherent contradictions, much the same way so many people can't seem to reconcile fiscal conservatism and the bit-tent philosophy of freedom and justice for all.
Later in the piece, Ms. McCain goes on to point out that supporting gay marriage rights does not necessarily come at the expense of other conservative values, like an opposition to abortion:
Recently, a conservative congressman was quoted saying, "If we don't save marriage, we can't remain pro-life." That's absurd.
She also adds:
So if anyone is still confused, let me spell it out for you. I believe life begins at conception and I believe that people who fall in love should have the option to get married.
So, McCain's argument is two-fold. Supporting gay rights is both pragmatic (the overwhelming majority of younger people support gay marriage) and moral (gay rights are human rights). It's an interesting mix. Part Libertarian, part party activist. The pragmatic part runs aground, however, when we consider the nation's views on keeping abortion legal.

The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
Will she please just GO AWAY??
The only people giving “Chubs” any air time are lefties like Rachel Mad-Cow and CNN.
I don’t give political advice to The Left and I don’t expect to take any from them.
Go ahead, finish off the destruction of the Republican party by completing its makeover into Democrats Lite. Then maybe people will finally turn to a 3rd party alternative that gives them a real choice.
Thanks to Perdogg and bamahead for the pings!
We need more gay crap in our lives, like we need more criminal socialists in our White House and Congress. What the GOP needs is CONSERVATISM and the mature, patriotic people to put it back into play.
That's a tent a lot of us don't want to be in, thankyavurymuch.
Pgkdan: We need fewer Meghan McCain Republicans
She must have fallen for the myth that
homos “are 10% of the population”.
Setting herself up as a democrat I see.
Er why? Is she having trouble finding straight guys to date?
UGH! Why is anyone listening to Meghan McCain?
As far as needing more of “any” type of Republican... Well, I could care less if they are Gay, Straight, Black, Blue, Purple, in love with their bird, WHO CARES!?!?!
What we REALLY need in the GOP are more CONSERVATIVES!
Why doesn’t Miss McCain just go party with her liberal buddies, and leave the GOP alone... (Her Dad should do likewise...).
I guess the republican party also needs more blacks that will placate to the entitlement crowd.
Maybe if we drop pieces of fried chicken all the way to the oceans edge, she will just keep walking!
Bad morning...everybody's writing gibberish. What's a bit-tent?
I am now convinced Meghan McCain and Paris Hilton are using the same PR agency.
I hear ya, there! She needs to get off Daddy’s coat-tails, and DO SOMETHING instead of just walking around spouting off her immature, Daddy-cloned talking points...
So that’s why she can’t find a guy to date.
Meghan out of the closet - News at 11
Hey “Reble without a clue”, your 15 minutes is up, shut up and sit down.
Ummm..., she needs to be reading the Bible, instead...
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible manand birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
This is all that we really need to know about the subject...
“UGH! Why is anyone listening to Meghan McCain?”
For the same reason the media loved her Dada. She’s a maverick who disses conservatives. have to admire her self promotion. She’s getting a lot of face time.
She wasn’t even a Republican until last year. Has she ever even held a real job?
Meghan, please... PLEASE just defect to the democrap party. Just go away!!
She's actually right about this, probably not in the method, but in the goal.
There's probably a fair amount of sodomites out there that agree with us on most of the issues. I'm not suggesting we pander to them by folding on DOMA or by incorporating their nausea inducing gay pride parades into our convention, but for those who can behave in a civil way and keep their abominable sex acts to themselves, we would benefit from having them casting votes for Conservative republican candidates.
so we can have more stories about Senators in Minneapolis Airport bathrooms stalls?
“Has she ever even held a real job?”
Good question. She must be on SOMEONE’S payroll, otherwise she’d likely have moved on by now.
No, we don’t need more straight Democrats. The straight ones reproduce, making more Democrats.
She sure likes to speak in the national spotlight but she is always absent from the Arizona scene.
“Chubs” - you’re nasty! (in a good way)
Seriously, she’s the drunk, stupid girl who misses the toilet when she pukes at a college house party.
Meghan, go away, or at least back to the I-Atea-Pie house, you fool.
“Will she please just GO AWAY??”
I agree. Isn’t there some drunken frat party she’s late for or something?
How did this idiot learn to type?
It’s sad to see the GOP reduced to eating its young.
This just proves Meghan Mccain is a paid trojan horse, mole, troll, or whatever infultration word you care to use.
This is being used as a wedge issue to divide young people from the republicans under the false assumption that young people are not personally disgusted by the conduct of homoseuxals (or their recruiting of minors efforts).
I think local republican clubs need to make and pass censure motions on meghan Mccain in order to show she is NOT a representative republican and has no place in main stream politics.
Now that was hysterical!
Young people are taught cigarettes are bad due to all the health problems created by the behavior. Sodomy has the same health record, in some cases worst health records as smoking. So why do young people embrace one bad behavior and shun another bad behavior??? Sodomy is a moral issue for religious people, but it is also a health issue.
I’m even tired of making fun of her at this point.
As I listened to her on Larry Cadaver King, I kept thinking about something about which Boortz frequently reminds his male audience: At some point, youll have to try to have a conversation with her. I also kept thinking that she HAS to be from California until I remembered that Arizona also has valleys.
As it turns out, any political capital that she may possess turns out to be counterfeit. I doubt that there is anything she can do to repair her image at this point in time. Surely, her father realizes that, but I doubt that she is bright enough to realize it.
And, Ms McCain is right, of course.
Think back to the men's restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and how Republican Senator Larry Craig distinguished himself, and all the positive things it did for the GOP.
Meghan McCain: We Need More Gay Republicans!
LOL! And you need to hang with more skanky fat ass tramps like yourself!
what do you expect, she hangs out with democrats.
Would a homosexual man have sex with a republican woman to convert her to democrat?
This hope seems to fool republican women pretty well.
The ROAD apple doesn't fall far from the horse's a$$ it came from.
The updated version better fits the McCains.
