Don't Do It, Dad

The text of Meghan McCain's Dirty Sexy Politics has just been published, but the subtext has been available for years. McCain is the daughter of 2008 POTUS runner-up John McCain. Fresh out of Columbia, she became a fixture on the campaign trail and the media thanks to (dad and) her McCainBloggette (now just a book promotion vehicle: her "work" has moved to Twitter and The Daily Beast) campaign blog.

Dirty Sexy PoliticsClaiming to speak for the old time, Republican moderates, Meghan, 25,  repeats (and repeats and repeats) her political message that the Republican party has lost its way, with its representatives forced to cater to Tea Party "crazies." Given the recent campaign where father John felt forced to rail against some long-held positions in order to recapture the Republican nomination for Arizona senator, the daughter seems to be attempting to warn/shame the father ... with love.
