Meghan McCain's 'Playboy' Interview Still Leaves Room for Her to 'Come Out'

meghan mccainMeghan McCain must feel like she's completely in her element these days, what with it being an election year. Ever since her daddy-o ran for president in '08, she's been makin' the rounds on the media machine, giving her opinion on politics as a Millennial conservative-turned-MSNBC correspondent. Now, in the April 2012 issue of Playboy, she talks -- fully-clothed -- about politics, sex, and Bristol Palin, among other topics.

Although I'm sure the general population is going to be cackling more about her thoughts on cleavage and Jack and Cokes, I was most intrigued by what she wasn't saying ...


First, McCain called the Republican primary "so lame" and lamented that none of the candidates have "electricity." She wishes that they'd bring someone onboard who can "excite younger people, independents, Hispanic voters and the disenfranchised." Hmm. We already knew Santorum wasn't doing it for her, because she's a major proponent of same-sex marriage (contrary to what her father believes). And because she's a major proponent of same-sex marriage, she somehow later felt the need to defend herself as straight. This is an ACTUAL quote:

I'm not a lesbian, if that’s what you’re asking. I'd be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men.

Uh ... "strictly dickly"?!?!! Okay, then! Although I'm also not sure what "live how you should live" means, good for her! Still, one thing: As someone who so passionately backs same-sex marriage, loves Rachel Maddow, claims to have a bevy of gay male friends, and wants a candidate who is for "young people, independents, Hispanic voters, and the disenfranchised," how has it not never occurred to Meghan that she's a total ... DEMOCRAT! That she's completely and utterly backing the wrong party?

It kinda makes me sad in the same way it would when clearly gay guys in my drama club/newspaper/yearbook clique would do their best to date girls, but you just knew lady lovin' wasn't their thing.

McCain may not be a lesbian, but someone needs to help her see the light about her political identity. She's basically a closeted liberal! Or Independent, at the very least. Doesn't she realize she's not "attracted to" any of the GOP candidates, because they don't see eye-to-eye with her on, well, ANYTHING? That just about any one of them would be perfectly happy doing away with birth control (something someone who "loves sex" surely needs from time to time), preventing gay marriage from ever becoming fully legal, reinforcing Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and dragging women -- like Ms. McCain -- back to the Dark Ages. Agh!

Come on, Meghan, get with it. You've probably already shocked Daddy enough with the "I love sex" remark, so why not just take it one step further. It's time to come out of that Republican closet!

Do you think Meghan McCain is a "closeted liberal"?
