Meghan McCain Is Indispensible!

John McCain’s airhead daugher, Meggie Mac, is out with her best column ever — and I’m not just saying that because she says she’s become : “disillusioned with the political process”:  which gives me some small measure of hope that she might quit writing. Wait, actually that is exactly why I like her column.

It all starts with our young heiress being harassed by some yahoo at the mall,

Last month I was out shopping with my mother in Phoenix, when a man came up to her and yelled, “Your husband needs to be more conservative!” before storming off. Believe it or not, nothing like this has ever really happened to me before. Sure, there have been times when I’ve been at rallies or speeches and people have made rude comments–that comes with the territory when you are in a public family–but this particular incident felt really shocking and disappointing. It was a direct slap in the face–a sign of how high the level of rancor has gotten that this man felt compelled to yell at my mother and me at the mall.

While I don’t advocate yelling at politicians or their families at the mall, even the McCains, there’s just something hilarious about a talentless, rich daddy’s girl getting ultra-upset because a peasant ruined the fun of shopping for her 8th pair of Manolo Blahniks. I mean politics is one thing, but shopping? Is nothing sacred?

From there, Meghan McCain vomits forth her standard trite, sophmoric sentiments that must give hope to talentless journalism majors with famous families all across our great land,

Lately I’ve felt that the anger in politics is spilling over from the expected places–protests, partisan websites, talk radio–into everyday lives. The lines of social acceptability and just plain courteous behavior are becoming harder to define when it comes to politics, and for the first time in a long time I am truly concerned about where this fear and frustration in politics is taking us.

…Apparently wanting Republicans and Democrats to work together for the good of the country makes me a zombie follower of the president.

…It’s almost as if to be taken seriously in politics, a certain level of anger and incivility is required. I am not saying I am not angry about many things that are going on in this country, but I do believe we can discuss our differences with respect.

And I don’t think I am the only one who feels this way. On this week’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Columbia University professor Alan Brinkley noted that “the capacity for compromise has disappeared” in politics.

…This extremist shift is happening all over the country, and I can’t help think about the toll it is taking on the next generation of voters. For the first time in my life, I find myself disillusioned with the political process–something I always swore would never happen to me. And I am not ashamed to admit that this small feeling of disillusionment is scaring me.

I know that after hearing that Meghan McCain is disillusioned, many of you have become frightened. Sure, the Republican:  Party can sustain the loss of Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, or Sarah Palin, but Meghan McCain? How many people could even replace her? One of the Bush Twins? Maybe, but let’s face it, not only do both of them seem to have at least 30 IQ points on her, they also seem to lean to the Right. So, where does that leave us? Do we have to hope Bristol Palin goes bad, gets back together with Levi Johnston, and starts writing columns for a living? I can’t speak for anyone else, but I don’t want to live in that kind of crazy world. No, there’s only one Republican columnist in America who we could imagine actually saying — “Daddy, I want a job as a columnist. Buy it for me! Buy it right now or I’ll hold my breath!” — and that makes Meghan McCain indispensible!
