Meghan "Princess of Arizona" McCain is a conservative blogger, and the daughter of the late Senator John McCain. She is currently a regular panelist for the ABC daytime show The View.Wikipedia

Views and criticism[edit]

McCain is pro-life, but is in favor of gay marriage and comprehensive sex education, which has caused her to come under fire from Rush Limbaugh, for daring to support things that might actually help the Republican Party to appeal to the young.

In fact most wingnuts seem to really hate her guts, seeing her as not being a "true conservative Republican," and she has become a frequent target of reactionary sites such as Townhall.com. Katie Pavlich in particular really hates her,[1] and Laura Ingraham has also decided that the best way to respond to Meghan is to make cracks about her weight (?).[2] Michelle Malkin doesn't like her,[3] nor does Ben Shapiro,[4] and that's not even including the z-list fringe right lunatics. Again, since most all of these people have a history of being less than stable it's really not hurting McCain's reputation among the reality-based community.

She has also come under fire as a nepotistic pretty face, who relies more on her sex appeal (which she admittedly has in abundance). However, she has so far managed to display more political acumen and greater policy expertise than talking heads and politicians who've been doing this for decades, including Tom Tancredo.[5]

More recently, McCain has been attacked from the left for claiming in a TV interview that Antisemitism in the United States has less to do with Neo-Nazism than a single Muslim congresswoman from Minnesota.[6]

In many ways, she is a moderate Republican. At least when she isn't:

A) Suggesting that Barack Obama might have fake cried over the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.Wikipedia [7]

B) Calling for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci because he "can’t tell me that if I get the vaccine, if I’ll be able to have dinner with my family" not to mention the inexcusable fact that "I, Meghan McCain, co-host of 'The View,' don’t know when or how I will be able to get a vaccine because the rollout for my age range and my health is so nebulous, I have no idea when and how I get it." [8]

C) Abusing her platform on The View to argue that "identity politics" will result in less qualified Asian people getting preferentially hired above more qualified white people, because that rascally senator (and war hero) Tammy Duckworth and Hawaii senator Mazie Hirono called for more Asian representation in Joe Biden's cabinet. [9]
