Meghan McCain

I'm still peeved with John McCain over his recent remarks on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but Meghan McCain may soon be my favorite Republican. Besides supporting same-sex marriage with her mother, she just blasted Tom Tancredo on some really ugly racism in his "Tea Party" speech. Read for yourself:

Congressman Tancredo went on TV and he was the first opening speaker and he said, 'People who could not even spell the word vote or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House whose name is Barack Hussein Obama.' And then he went on to say that people at the convention should have to pass literacy tests in order to be able to vote in this country, which is the same thing that happened in the 50's to prevent African Americans from voting. It's innate racism and I think it's why young people are turned off by this movement. And I'm sorry, but revolutions start with young people, not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word 'vote' in English.

I'd like some more pushback against the crazies in the Republican party, please. Thank you.

(Of course, I'm starting to think that she'll be considered a Democrat before too long, like many other smart Republicans.)
