Meghan McCain’s Visit to (GWU) Campus Met With Student Protests (she attacks conservatives)
The Daily Colonial, George Washington University, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-03-25 | Kristin Drouin

(snip)

Her mission? To “redefine” Republicanism, to make room in the party for diverse viewpoints and ideological differences.

“I’m saying make room for all Republicans,” she said. “Not tomorrow. Today….We evolve or we die.”

(snip)

For someone who grew up in a house with elephant wallpaper in the bathroom, McCain took a circuitous route to Republicanism, registering as an independent voter at age 18 and even voting for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. But “sometimes love sneaks up on you in weird ways,” McCain explained, noting that her experience on the campaign trail changed her mind, leading her to a new belief system, and she re-registered as a Republican as a Father’s Day present for her dad.

Believing that her support for gay marriage will ensure she is “on the right side of history” when the “civil rights issue” of her generation is finally decided, McCain challenges anyone who does not believe she can reconcile her position on equality with her Republican identity.

“Move over GOP,” she said. “Because I’m not going anywhere.”

(snip)

McCain, who kept the event closed to outside media so that student journalists could have an advantage in reporting on her visit, encouraged those in attendance to “stay vocal” and to demand the right to speak out. Because of her own refusal to be silenced, McCain knows she has become a controversial figure – a role she would not have necessarily chosen for herself.

“I’m a lover, man. I like getting along with people,” she said.

Still, she feels her voice is important, crucial to drowning out the “fear politics” of the current partisan climate and providing support to those who may feel lost on the political spectrum.

Now I get it.

Meghan wants to belong with the RINO wing of the party for quite a number of years and realizes that to remain covered while hanging out at the edge of the tent, will need a larger tent in the coming decades.

She is one of her father’s many proxies.

The only way to excise the RINO cancer is to remove McCain himself.

Never post a Megan McCain thread again.

If John McCain is defeated this year, then Meghan McCain will fade into obscurity.

Similarly, if John McCain is re-elected, then Meghan McCain and the other assorted RINOs will attack with a vengeance.

And Lane Bryant can redefine sizes to make most of their clothing a size 4, too. Doesn't mean that it won't be counterproductive however.

McCain explained that she is also “pro-birth control” and, admittedly, not abstinent.

*Shudder* Better you than me, unidentified sap.

I live in DC and know many involved party people. Not a single person considers Megan McCain serious, but yet all the media attention.

I don’t see any reporting about Miss McCain’s craziness in Arizona. Voters don’t know about her.

“I’m saying make room for all Republicans,” she said. “Not tomorrow. Today….We evolve or we die.”

Meghan McCain has no idea what a Republican should be and certainly not what a conservative is. She should just join the Dem Party and be done with it.

Into what? Three-headed flatworms?

Meanwhile, is that rule true for the Reds in the 'Rat Party who are stuck in 1917?

Didn’t Miss McCain suggest in her appearance on The View that she would be unloading on Palin in her book due out in August? Obviously they disagree on social issues and Meghan must know saying something controversial about Palin is the best way to get positive coverage for her book.

Your dad tried “evolve”, and we have a communist/fascist hybrid dictator in the White House.
