Given that she is persona non grata with the Republicans/conservatives, why does she think her wishy-washy ultimatum matters one bit?

It's funny that some conservatives think if they jettison the crazy crap and only try to sell the GOP by their economic plans that their side will become more appealing. Somehow they forget that they had to bring in the crazies in order to win as their economic plans are horrible and go over like a lead balloon.

unlikely: GAT_00: But she'll still vote for Republicans across the board.

Independent is what republicans who are afraid to admit they're republicans call themselves.


I consider myself an Independent, and I actually like Megan, specifically because she is a voice of sanity that says that maybe the Right will move back to sanity. If the next-gen GOP is full of people leaning more her way, then I can handle it. The Right just needs to dump the truly venomous assholes that have hijacked it.

That would be difficult in any circumstances, but it has become almost impossible because of the Conservative Entertainment Complex that some of the saner Republicans (like Frum) are complaining about. It's not in the interests of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh etc. to have a rational, reasonable GOP; there's an embarrassing amount of money to be made catering to the lunatic fringe.

Lionel Mandrake: MSFT: Isn't she the one who said on the Bill Maher show that she didn't know about history that happened before she was born, as in, who reads books like that?

She's not the sharpest knife in the draw, but seems decent enough, A true RINO.

But there's only one reason anyone cares about her. OK, two reasons. Two, huge, buxom, shapely, voluptuous reasons.


She does have beautiful eyes, I'll give you that.

Are moderate Republicans like Megs here gonna leave the party or are they gonna kick out the social conservative lunatics who've hijacked the party?

I'd almost rather see here stay Republican and fight the derp from within than become another "too embarrassed to call themselves a Republican" IndependentTM

And I suppose some sort of bawdy reference to Ms McCains mammalian protuberances is in order now?

Very well.

unlikely: Independent is what republicans who are afraid to admit they're republicans call themselves.


Independents is also what people like myself call themselves... people who aren't (and in some cases never have been) affiliated with or a member of any political party. Try not to be a douchebag to all independents by calling us all Republicans. I haven't voted for a Republican for a very long time and as it currently stands I don't see a Republican emerging that is worth voting for in the future either. All I'm saying is that before you start swinging a bat around like that, be sure you're hitting the right people. At the moment it seems like you're taking wild swings and hitting both allies and adversaries.

On another note: anyone that is as despised by Ann Coulter as much as Meghan is, has to be doing something right. Little Orphan Annie is like Bill Kristol in that if she has a hate on for someone, they really have to be doing something great...

Now, I know that hooters can subside when some weight loss kicks in, but given her mammoth mammaries we currently enjoy only in their teaserific cleavaged form and chubby-not-fat figure, I think 30 lbs of weight loss would give us a universally fappable specimen with still-full tatas to boot.

abb3w: It's about a third of independents who effectively identify with the GOP. Contrariwise, it's almost exactly the same fraction of independents who effectively identify with the Democratic Party. (Linky.)

 

So, you're not a "Disguised Republican", but a "Disguised Democrat". (I probably fall in the same category.)

hubiestubert: unlikely: GAT_00: But she'll still vote for Republicans across the board.

Independent is what republicans who are afraid to admit they're republicans call themselves.

In fairness, I still consider myself fairly Conservative, but the GOP is now firmly in the hands of radicals. The party has given up on any pretense of fiscal restraint, actively hates a fair amount of the population, and is adamant on fighting against anything resembling equity or the rights of individuals. I hung in for years, hoping to vote in sane candidates, but that voice was drowned out, and it just didn't help. I gave up my membership to the party after casting my ballot in the last Primary, and it didn't do a damn bit of good to keep Romney off the roster.

I'm not a Democrat, but if the choice is between a radical, and centerist with a plan for the future that doesn't involve shooting or jailing dissenters, then I have to go with the candidate with a sane plan for the future, and those are rarer and rarer within the ranks of the GOP. They've embraced radicalism, and still want to call "Conservative" in the same way that "Social Conservatives" hate their neighbors and want to establish a radicalized view of freedom of religion.

I want sane fiscal policy so my daughter isn't saddled with huge debts. I want sane domestic policy that doesn't demonize my neighbors for simply existing. I like our Constitutional protections, and that means I like freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, I like the right to seek legal redress, I like both the Second and First Amendments. Freedom of religion isn't about liking only ONE faith or ministry, and that means that marriage equality is sort of an issue--not all ministries have a problem with same sex couples, and if folks don't want to marry gay and lesbian couples, that's their business, but likewise the folks who do want to perform those ceremonies, we can't really stand in their way, and likewise, it comes down to equality under the law. Marriage equalit ...


Great post and I agree with almost everything you said, except the UK did send significant military resources, including troops to both Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm not sure about France or Germany - if they contributed or not. The UK almost always stands with the US in its wars.

http://www.parentdish.com/2008/06/14/megan-mccain-gives-her-dad-one-mo re-vote-for-fathers-day/

Here's a Father's Day gift most of us cannot give: Megan McCain, daughter of Presidential hopeful Senator John McCain, has changed her voter registration from Independent to Republican, for her dad. "I did this as a symbol of my commitment to my dad and to represent the faith I have in his ability to be an effective leader for our country and to grow and strengthen the Republican Party when he is elected president of the United States," she wrote on her blog. "Happy Father's Day, Dad!"

So this threat is meaningless and attention whoring: Things Meghan is good at being

nobodyUwannaknow: Bontesla: Why give it two years? What does she expect to happen that will drive out the social conservatives leaving only fiscal conservatives?

When were there ever fiscal conservatives in the GOP?


This is the politics tab, there's a chart for that, blah, blah, blah.

That's the response I got when I posted something similar last week. The irony was that the chart showed that Republicans damaged the budget much more than Democrats did. So the chart poster almost proved my point.

And in 2004 she voted for John Kerry

6. She didn't start off a Republican! Despite her father being a household name and Meghan growing up in the spotlight, she was determined to make it on her own and buck "all labels and boxes and stereotypes." The strong-minded teen registered as an Independent when she was 18 and voted for John Kerry in the 2004 election. McCain has openly voiced her views on sex education and birth control, and chastised conservatives for hypocrisy regarding abortion, "They go on and on about how evil and wrong abortion is, but don't like to talk about how easy it is to not get pregnant," she said.

No. Not a disguised Democrat either. I'm not a member of any party... end of story. I vote for who I want to vote for. I vote for who I think will do the best job. That doesn't mean Democrat by default. I do not agree with all the things Democrats stand for, but given a choice between a Republican or a Democrat, I'm way more likely to vote for a Democrat because voting for a Republican is voting against my own self interests. I'm an atheist. That alone puts me at odds with Republicans who seem bent on legislating their religious beliefs upon me. I'm not a racist or a bigot and again this conflicts with the Republican party as a whole. I would sooner cut foreign and defense spending than cut domestic spending (I believe that we should be investing more in ourselves than investing in destroying others). So really there is no place for me at the Republican table. There is no common ground outside of "we're all Americans" and sometimes I wonder if Republicans even share that as they seem to be Republicans first and American second.

Essentially what it comes down to is that there is only one major party that I find common ground with. That doesn't make me a Democrat in disguise, it makes me an independent with unfortunately limited choices. On a local level I tend to vote for smaller, less influential parties... but on a national/federal scale, I am offered few alternatives. The saying, "half a loaf is better than no loaf", comes to mind.

The Bestest: jaytkay: The Republican-dominated Alabama legislature successfully adopted some change recently.

They voted to prevent Obama's communist mind-control UN takeover of America.

President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as "Delphi" to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That's according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month.

SO IN REVIEW

Meghan was
A Political Independent (Registered) prior to her dad running for President
She voted in 2004 for John Kerry (a good friend of her dad running against the man who humiliated her dad in the GOP primary 4 years earlier)
She changed her registration in 2008 to Republican so she could vote for her dad in the Arizona Primary and the general election.
She voted in 2012 for the man running against the man who embarrassed her dad (and endorsed the guy her dad beat like a government mule)

So why are we taking her political views seriously?

Because she's the spawn of a politician. It's the same reason some folks watched Bristol Palin dance with d-listers. It's what you get when you have to launder some cash, but you can't do it by directly handing it to the politician in question.
 
2012-11-18 11:08:07 PM
She's famous for what now? Being a failed candidate's daughter with one ghost-written book and one co-written book? Not a party officer? Elected? Shot what in the who now?

I am an independent who is registered as a Republican. That way I can monkey with their primaries. Seems to me shutting yourself out of being able to vote in primary elections is not going to do much good.

Democrats, their primaries are not as interesting to vote in, at least where I live.
