I'm not sure if it's something I have to defend, but I don't hate Meghan McCain. The more I hear from this young Republican—yes, Republican—the more I like.
She's not a major newsmaker, but she's been playing the controversial pundit since her father's unsuccessful run for president. In that role she has often enraged her own party—and possibly daddy dearest—with a new kind of "radical moderation." Especially when it comes to social issues.
She's totally a friend of a friend of a friend of Dorothy. She even spoke to the 2009 Log Cabin Republicans, saying "old school Republicans" are "scared shitless" of the future.
