McCain’s daughter, Meghan, God love her, has entered into the Tea Party fray, too. Sure, Tancredo dissed her daddy, but given her history as “Miss Independent,” far from being her father’s political puppet, I wouldn’t be too quick to assume her latest comments are mere posturing.
As a guest-host on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Meghan had some choice words for Tancredo and the Tea Party movement. As Salon.com’s Tracy Clark-Flory reports, she referenced Tancredo’s suggestion to bring back literacy tests and said it was no different from the literacy tests that prevented some African-Americans from voting up until the 1960s. Meghan continued:
“It’s innate racism and I think it’s why young people are turned off by this movement. And I’m sorry, but revolutions start with young people, not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can’t say the word ‘vote’ in English.”
F*cking retard. Your thoughts.
