The Incisive, Hard-Hitting Political Insight Of....Meghan McCain?

While I'm sure that she's a nice person, can anyone explain to me why John "If it's Sunday, I must be booked on a Sunday news show" McCain's 25 year old daughter has any political insight that I need to hear? And for her to opine on the state

While I'm sure that she's a nice person, can anyone explain to me why John "If it's Sunday, I must be booked on a Sunday news show" McCain's 25 year old daughter has any political insight that I need to hear?

And for her to opine on the state of the Republican Party is all that much more curious, since I'm fairly sure that the Powers That Be barely tolerate her father as a Republican; Meghan's socially liberal stances (pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, anti SB1070) basically make her a Republican In Name Only, even if she won't publicly admit it. She's never held a public office, has never been in public service and her only exposure to the actual work that the government does is through her father and she was in Arizona while he was in DC. What exactly gives her the credibility to be at the pundit roundtable? Judging by the barely hidden grimace on his face, I'm pretty sure George Will wondered too.

But that said, I give her credit for saying something that no one else in the Republican Party will say: Christine O'Donnell is a nutjob. It's not that they don't believe it, because the NRSC won't help her campaign, an indication they don't consider her electable.

But Meghan knows nutjobs. Because Meghan's dad brought to national attention the original model: Sarah Palin. And for Meghan to opine on the vacuousness of Christine O'Donnell without acknowledging that trail was blazed by her father's running mate is disingenuous and laughable.
