Meghan McCain: "I Have Lots of Gay Friends"
Gawker ^

Posted on 04/20/2009 9:56:59 AM PDT by lewisglad

Oh, Meghan. We're very proud of you for having the courage to speak before the Log Cabin Republicans, as woman running for pundit. You can read Meghan's full remarks to the gay Republican group here, in case you are interested in learning about how highly Meghan thinks of herself for being so young and progressive and young. Whee. The politics of failure have failed, Meghan announces, and Republicans can't just join Twitter and expect to win young voters! They have to join Twitter and have kicky gay hairstylists and read Pitchfork!

This is her explanation of "what it means to be a new, progressive Republican."

So tonight, I am proud to join you in challenging the mold and the notions of what being a Republican means. I am concerned about the environment. I love to wear black. I think government is best when it stays out of people's lives and business as much as possible. I love punk rock. I believe in a strong national defense. I have a tattoo. I believe government should always be efficient and accountable. I have lots of gay friends. And yes, I am a Republican.

Has Meghan ever examined why she is a Republican? No, whatever, she doesn't think about politics outside of these purely stylistic tribe-based frames. "I love punk rock. I have a tattoo." Good for you, those facts have nothing to with anything.

Does Meghan know that "Progressive Republican" actually refers to a specific set of issues beyond "I love giving lip service to my gay friends and think recycling is pretty cool"? Does she know that back in 1912, the year her dad lost his virginity to a stripper in Guam or something, a group of Republicans actually started a "Progressive Party" and that this party was not about "a strong national defense" and the government staying out of everyone's fucking business but, in fact, the opposite of those things?

The platform called for women's suffrage, recall of judicial decisions, easier amendment of the U.S. Constitution, social welfare legislation for women and children, workers' compensation, limited injunctions in strikes, farm relief, revision of banking to assure an elastic currency, required health insurance in industry, new inheritance taxes and income taxes, improvement of inland waterways, and limitation of naval armaments.

And yes this party was mostly actually about Teddy Roosevelt's tremendous ego but, you know, universal health care, higher taxes, and social welfare: what do you think about those things, Meghan? We know you have a tattoo and listen to Franz Ferdinand, but what can you tell us about Robert La Follette? He was this guy who probably would've pointed out that your mindless repetition of the meaningless buzz-phrase "a strong national defense" actually just means "arming the fuck out the nation while people starve."

Following in her dad’s footsteps, Meghan is such a tribute to the career of her dad. Neither have had anything particularly productive to say in a long long time.

Meghan, you obviously have few single straight male friends, which is likely the source of your frustrations.

Poor Meghan... little chubby chick's being used like a dancing bear by the left... she's hoping that this will be just what she needs to get included in the glam world of Hollywood liberals.

And they're playing right along with it, laughing behind their backs at the fat little "Republican" girl who's willing to grovel for admission to their putrid clique......

Who the f**k cares how many gay friends you have?

Unles, of course, you just wanna show how big of a fag hag you are.

Absolutely nothing on TV last night, so for want of something better to do, we watched an episode of Speeders on True TV. I swear, one young, brainless woman who was pulled over could have doubled for Meghan McCain had she bore a little more weight (well, perhaps more than a little...). She was trying to make out with the cop, then even offered to pay him to get out of a ticket.

This was in California, and the officer took it in stride. The woman was probably typical of many he runs into nightly. And Meghan would fit right in with these airheads.

Thick chick is so stupid she doesn't even know she's a lefty. As left as any of ‘em. That's why the media love her.

She's had 10 times more air-time than a million tea partiers.

While people starve?

The number one nutrition related problem among Americas “poor” is OBESITY.

In fact you are more likely to be obese if you are “poor” in America than if you are not.

Nobody starves in America unless someone is deliberately starving them.

Geez, ducky, spell her name right. It’s Meghan McCain.

Hmmm. Maybe the McCains are related to the old Campbell family?

She keeps making these kind of statements...

If Meghan didn’t have a rich mommy, she would have to pay for two seats on the airplane and buy fat credits for her sizeable contribution to Gorebull Warming.

Meghan McCain is doing this stuff WITH his consent. Just as John McCain was disciplined about his family’s political careers before, so is she.

If anyting she is John McCain’s access to homosexual group’s donating to McCains joke of a pac. It is all about campaign money.

Why is Paterson in NY State groveling for homosexual based marriage, the answer is in the money.

McCain Inc. is all about the benjamins. (or whoever is on the 1000’s)

I assume it’s just another MSM plot to slander the Republican party.

Meghan McCain, like Paris Hilton, is famous for being famous.
