Prediction: Meghan McCain Leaves GOP

Posted in Media Bias by Ryan on the May 20th, 2009

Just throwing it out there.  She keeps on getting soundbites and headlines because she represents “a bold new face of republicanism.” However, I’m guessing that after a few months, perhaps a year or two, we’ll see her slip to becoming an independent, or even a democrat.

I feel silly adding to the attention that is already out there, but she has become the opposite of the Rush Limbaugh phenomenon.  Instead of Limbaugh representing the “worst” in the minds of democrats, McCain embodies the “best” in the GOP in their minds, and is given ample screen time and headlines.

Apparently she is 24, attended Columbia, earning a degree in Art History.  I feel much the same as Matt Lewis:

What can I say about her that hasn’t already been said? My position can best be summed up by Matthew Yglesias, who wrote: “To the best of my knowledge we’re talking about a young woman who’s never accomplished anything or held a job.”
