Meghan McCain, self-described Republican, said that she’s sick of not being taken seriously. So with that in mind, this certainly won’t help matters. She’s been hired as an MSNBC contributor to Lean Forward™ and offer the RINO perspective on the issues:

Now that the political season is heating up, Meghan McCain — daughter of erstwhile Republican presidential candidate John McCain, will be appearing on MSNBC more often — and as a paid contributor.

McCain makes her debut on the network (as a staffer) Monday at noon on NOW with Alex Wagner.

In a statement released by MSNBC on Monday, McCain said: “It’s a unique opportunity to share my perspective as a Republican on a network I respect and have built a relationship with over the past two years.”

The addition of Meghan McCain to the NBC News family will provide a nice “lighter side” offset to the serious, muckraking style of the hard-hitting news veteran the network just recently hired, Chelsea Clinton.

    Well it does seem like a fiting show for her to debut on. I mean any show called the National Organization of Wankers seems perfect for any McCain.

    Her "perspective as a Republican"?
    Like 'Conservatives are icky!', or something?

    The first step in being taken seriously is talking sense. Too bad she's never tried it.

    Or at least being consistent? Too bad it wasn't as easy for Doug or Michelle landing a nice media gig without having to really work for it?

    Who's her first guest going to be, Chas Bono?

    "Too bad it wasn't as easy for Doug or Michelle landing a nice media gig without having to really work for it?"

    Apparently for that to happen I'd have to first convince my father to move way to the left and run for president, and neither of those things will happen.

    Wuul like, that`s like about as like in-depth as she can get, you know ?

    Hear ya'. My old man was a John Birch Society member and Barry Goldwater supporter. Though according to trolls, 'we' are "hardline right wingers!" Go figure?

    Placing Meghan in the spotlight ( how long was she pestering 'em for a gig? ) only crowds the stage w/ yet another celebrity offspring that won't be shaping political opinion. This is a sideshow at best.

    On the bright side, it'll make for more days where the blog "writes itself"?

    She makes Bristol Palin look like a Rhodes Scholar.
