Meghan McCain: the blonde blogette
This is Meghan, John McCain's seriously blonde 24 year old daughter. She is blogging her father's campaign in her own way, which is to say she looks at the things that she and her friends find interesting, rather than following the party line on these matters. Actually Meghan comes over as her own girl in many respects, for instance she voted for John Kerry in 2004.

Both Meghan and her blog have come under attack from Democrat supporters, many of whom enjoy comparing her to Paris Hilton on the basis of a shared blondness. Some of the attacks are ferocious, such as this obscene animated GIF that is going the rounds, or the comments to this Wonkette posting, and rather tell against the notion that the Democrats are the decent party in all of this.

McCain Blogette is not going to become a part of my daily reading - it's a bit too bubbly for my tastes - but if you want a different perspective on the McCain campaign then you should give it a whirl. Both it and Meghan are certainly a refreshing change from the identikit candidate's families, and their blogs, that get trotted out at every American election.
