The daughter of “maverick” Republican Senator John McCain is a “maverick” herself—that is, maverick as McCain-lovin’ liberal commentators mean it: She’s an über-cool politics chick with lots to say of the conventional-thinking NYTimesish variety, and she’s got credulous lefties lapping up her disses of conservatives like kittens at cream bowls. Only a few days ago she treated the moron quintuplets of “The View” to a little peroration on Tom Tancredo and the Tea Party Movement (“This rhetoric will continue to turn off young voters, and anybody that says different is smoking something—period”) and lectured them on the failings of her father’s erstwhile running-mate, whom she criticized for suggesting “that President Obama could improve his re-election chances by declaring war on Iran.” “You should never go to war unless it’s the absolute last circumstance,” she warned.
Really? We didn’t know that until you told us, Meghan. Any more similarly astute political guidance from the Daily Beast’s breast aficionado? Whoopi will be grateful to get it.
