Meghan McCain isn't a redneck and she wants the world to know that not all conservatives are rednecks either. On Sept. 9, Huffington Post reported that McCain is speaking out about her political views and she's defending many in her party who don't fall into the stereotype.
"People within the Republican Party don’t have to listen to me. But, at some point, they will have to listen to facts, to trends in this country. We’re losing young voters, women voters and minority voters. … I just think it’s a recipe for failure. … The extreme right wing of the party is still running everything," McCain explained.
Meghan McCain and rednecks don't have much in common -- that is, if you think that right wing extremists are rednecks. In fact, McCain has said that she would consider switching parties and registering as an independent voter. Why? Simply because the world has evolved and people have grown but the republican party seems to be lagging behind -- unwilling to bend on most every issue.
McCain has been very outspoken about her beliefs even if they don't completely line up with the "traditional" beliefs of her chosen party. In many ways, she's smart and she isn't afraid to speak out and defend herself. Will McCain be supported by other conservatives or is the party too far gone?
Was Meghan McCain's rednecks comment spot on?
