Dirty Sexy Politics

Meghan McCain, the daughter of US Sen (and Republican Presidential hopeful) John McCain, talks about her book, “Dirty Sexy Politics” at a book signing at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe Thursday night. 

McCain has achieved a level of fame (and notoriety) for her bloggingtweeting andwriting. She identifies herself as a fiscally conservative, socially liberally Republican. She doesn’t oppose gay marriage and she seems to support immigrant rights. She advocates a “big tent” approach to GOP politics, so much so that during an appearance on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart teased her about it, saying “Good luck with that.” (Stewart also jokes about the end of the bromance between Sen McCain and Stewart.) 

On TV McCain comes across as a funny, entertaining young lady willing to speak her mind and that’s exactly how she comes across in person. Her book is doing quite well on Amazon and the crowd last night (the place was packed) was very supportive.
