The most interesting Republican to emerge from November 2008's election is McCain. Meghan McCain that is. I've referenced Meghan in the past, but I first wrote about her when she dissed Ann Coulter back in March and was the subject of some hateful rhetoric from Republican Party commentators.

Meghan reminds more more of a conservative Democrat with her forward thinking social policies and frankness when discussing sex - a taboo subject in the Republican party unless they are gloating over someone's infidelity. She was openly criticized for lamenting the loss of Sen. Specter in April and is referred to as a RINO (Republican In Name Only) on many conservative blogs where she is regularly trashed.

No doubt Meghan's vocal stand against California's hateful ban on gay marriage will serve to further irritate the cantankerous bunch of bigots more commonly referred to as the Republican Party leadership. I love this photo of Meghan although I wonder exactly how much Photoshop was done. Regardless I'm glad to see her making such a public statement and thankful to see at least a few people in the Republican party still have some sense of fairness when it comes to discussing LGBT rights.
