Another McCain Maverick?

April 1, 2009 | NeW Staff

Kathleen Parker has a column out on Meghan McCain’s role in the Republican Party.  Meghan has been able to position herself as a spokeswoman for the GOP.  She is the media’s new favorite McCain.   Parker writes that Meghan is following her father’s maverick footsteps.  In writing about this, Parker goes as far as to compare Meghan to Britney Spears,

“The GOP’s identity crisis just got more interesting with the media splash of Meghan McCain, daughter of the senator who did not become president.

Young McCain, who began blogging during her father’s presidential campaign, recently made waves at the Daily Beast when she picked a fight with conservative media mavens Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.

This is enough sport to make the little dog laugh, to say nothing of the dish and the spoon.

McCain, just 24, is one smart cookie. In a matter of weeks, she has created a brand, presenting herself as a fresh face of her daddy’s party and a voice for young conservatives. Strategically speaking, what better way to launch herself than to challenge the reigning diva herself, Miz Coulter?

Madonna, meet Britney. “

Here is a link to Parker’s column, Another McCain Throws Down a Challenge.
