Getting George Will to spar with Meghan McCain on politics is like getting King Kong to spar with Curious George on bananas.
Christiane Amanpour must have George by the short and curlies.....contractually speaking. The fun part starts around 7:35 when Meghan cautions the republican party about losing young voters because "they are the future". George, the grown-up on the panel replies, "That's tautology, but not an astute political point"....OWNED!!!
I know Meghan McCain means well and she probably believes what she's saying but, she's eagerly being exactly what the liberal media want to portray young conservatives as......not very conservative. She prefers the old days where republicans and democrats pretended to spar for the cameras, but later attended the same cocktail parties at which mutually beneficial political deals were crafted. That's the Washington that her father lived in. Old school politicos don't like anybody to upset the apple cart. They had a good thing going until the Tea Party activists started winning elections by talking about archaic ideas like the Constitution and limited government.
No wonder she's upset. Now she's being forced to choose sides. She's got to either be a real conservative or go ahead and become a democrat if being invited to the hip, insider, cocktail parties is that important.
