    Which of these ladies represents the future of the Republican party?
    Will the Repubs move back to the center as Miss McCain would like?
    Or will the Republican party move even further to the extreme right - and the far right teabaggers take over the party as O'Donnell would like?

    Is Miss McCain right that O'Donnell is a "nut job"?

    They're both nut jobs, and why the hell are you referring to one as "Miss" and the other not?

    Because if I called her "McCain", it might be confusing, since she's not the famous "McCain" - her father is.
    The "Miss" was intended to avoid the confusion.
    Period.

    And "why the hell" are you always pissed off?

    I hadn't heard that she did that.
    Wow.
    I think I just lost all respect for her.
    Not that I had that much to begin with, but compared to O'Donnell...

    Thanks, guys.
    I rarely feel "hot", so I appreciate the words a lot.

    I hope Meghan McCain. She's been pretty good about standing up for gay rights in the past and isn't anti-masturbation like Christine O'Donnell. Sadly it seems like extremists are running the GOP so if the Tea Partiers win their elections this fall the future of the Republican party will probably look more like Christine O'Donnell.

    Only when I stumble across your threads. icon_razz.gif But I'll concede, I thought the "miss" part was purposeful to show respect to one and not to the other.

    Meghan McCain so far has presented a composed, small-government, socially accepting version of Republicanism that I think is probably the only way up for the party. Her views are usually well thought out and presented well, and if the Republican Party can find about 10,000 more of her, it'd be a lot better for the US and the gays. The alternative is probably more like Christine O'Donnell.

    Hopefully the McCain way and I actually hope she does follow in her father footsteps and runs for office!

    My feelings on Meghan McCain are best summed up by one of the article comments:

    "Meghan McCain is nowhere on my give-a-s#*t list. The political equivalent of Paris Hilton"

    No, she did not

    "I almost registered as a Democrat to be rebellious, but I registered as an Independent instead. Then my dad bragged about it, so it backfired. I don't relate to the hard right. I think that's common knowledge. It's time to reinvent the Republican Party. And I think my dad can do it."—Glamour magazin

    Thought it is true she did wait to register as a Republican to tell her father about it on Father's day.

    southbeach1500 saidI hope you also take note that RickRick rarely (if ever) resorts to nasty, personal attacks on RJ members he disagrees with.

    He would be a good role model for many of you on here.


    Oh, you know you love him. His gruff ways would turn you into a puddle in the sack.

    I ended up looking at this for awhile. It appears that she may have registered as a Republican for his birthday- not that she "became" a republican (nor changed any political views when she joined.) So far it is mostly comments on blogs that make th claim. But a few say that is what she said in her book (though I will not buy it to confirm or deny.)

    anyhow, this led to a little more research which led to this picture of McCain.

    I am curious what else she can do to win the vote of a gay man short of change party affiliations? I know- she is Republican and as such evil.

    "Miss McCain says “Homophobia is the last socially accepted prejudice,” and views the fight for gay equality as “my generation’s civil rights movement.”

    “If two people fall in love, they should have the option to get married just like I can.” (McCain)

    She should start by getting the Republican Party to recognize the Log Cabin Republicans ASAP. Their consistent reliance on conservative Christians and their phobias has really damaged the other members of the party, imho.

    Sorry- Just realized I did not provide a link. (Though after adding this I I think I have posted most of the relevant content...)http://beeaware.blogspot.com/2009/07/meghan-mccain-power.html
    That link has other things that says that she likely agrees with you

    ...But she insists on being a Republican to broaden the party and attract young people by stepping away from old fogie exclusiveness and religious right narrow mindedness....

    In a speech to the Log Cabin Republicans, she said that “old-school Republicans” were “scared shitless” of the future and retreating further and further into an ultraconservative crouch.

    She says, “I'd be flattered to be considered the anti–Ann Coulter, the anti–Rush Limbaugh.”

    I guess the vote count will tell us if O'Donnell really is a witch.

    THIS coming from Mr. Cheerful himself? icon_lol.gif

    Regarding Meghan McCain, I think she is awesome!! I hope she does run for office one day as I think she is extremely bright, open-minded, and immensely likable. She is also a friend to the gay community. Yes, folks, there are Republicans, many of them, who are. As for Miss O'Donnell -- she needs to just go away.

    I hope the GOP moves to the center. As a republican myself, I hope we get back to the basics of limited government, states' rights, low taxes, and responsibility.
