Meghan McCain Is Not, Strictly Speaking, Very Smart

Once again Ms. McCain has grabbed headlines as the new voice of the Republican Party by running down, wait for it, Republicans.

The big media take away quote from her appearance on The View yesterday was her mention of Karl Rove and Dick Cheney which concluded with "You had your 8 years, go away".

Well, here's what she actually said.

"It's very unprecedented for someone like Karl Rove or Dick Cheney to be criticizing the President. It's very unprecedented, former Vice President and obviously you know Karl Rove...You had your 8 years, go away"

Not just 'unprecedented' but she channeled her inner Demi Moore in a Few Good Men and raised the ante with "very unprecedented"

Let me see if I can go back into the musty history books and find a former Vice President and chief political adviser to a president who criticized the next administration....

Oh here's a pair. Al Gore and James Carville.

Ms. McCain spoke of her Columbia education during the show. Apparently they don't teach ancient American history (or what the word "unprecedented" means) at that fine institution.

Why bother going after this dim bulb? Because she's clearly digging the limelight and the only way she gets to stay in it is by knocking Republicans. Of course she does this while claiming to be one of them and only worried about the future of the party. Pointing out that Gore and Carville knocked Bush doesn't score you sweet network time, does it?

We really have to make it clear we don't need any more McCain mavericks. One has done enough damage to the party.

Oh and Ms. McCain? What political characteristic do Rove and Cheney have in common that your dad doesn't share? Rove and Cheney were part of winning two presidential elections. You can look it up.

More: BTW-Did you know Ms. McCain only became a Republican last year? Here's her blog entry on the subject.

As some of you may know, I have been registered as an Independent since I was 18 years old. However, after careful thought and consideration, I recently decided to change my political party affiliation. This morning, I went to the State Capitol Executive Building in Phoenix with Mom and re-registered as a Republican. 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. Happy Father's Day, Dad!

She didn't become a Republican out of principle. She did it as a gift to her dad, which is honestly very sweet but hardly qualifies you to position yourself as the voice of young Republicans. Honestly the 'my daddy is the nominee' is a small cohort the party can do without winning over.
