    The Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality has dominated the headlines since its announcement and it's been an issue Meghan McCain, blogger, GLAAD board member and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) has been fighting for since 2008. "It was considered quite scandalous," McCain told Mac and Gaydos on 92.3 KTAR of her coming out in support of same sex marriage seven years ago. "It was the type of thing that got a lot of media attention, a lot of people thought I was crazy and completely out of touch with reality and now, people come out for marriage equality...

    I admit that I am truly baffled and quite irked by the decision of Premiere Radio Networks to hire Senator John McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, to host the nationally syndicated radio talk show, America Now. I'm baffled, because America Now is carried on conservative talk radio stations, and Meghan McCain is not a conservative (more on that in a moment), so conservative talk show listeners will tune out each time she signs on. That's a fact. We are bombarded with leftist media tripe everywhere we turn. We don't want it on our conservative talk stations, too, thank you very much....
