Columbia grad (’07) and Hilary Duff look-a-like Meghan McCain has launched a blog chronicling her dad’s (Arizona Sen. John McCain) presidential campaign. Meghan, along with someone named La-Toria Haven whom Meghan calls a “political fashionista”, and Mary Anne Huntsman (Utah Gov. John Huntsman’s daughter), are “traveling on the road with Senator McCain’s campaign and [blogging] about our experiences along the way.”
Meghan’s blog certainly stands out from run-of-the-mill campaign coverage. For instance, in the graphics! Like the sassy, high-heeled silhouette clutching a lap top a la Carrie Bradshaw. Nothing says “Washington insider” like a red stiletto! And her ability to use art theory to draw insights about trends within the GOP:
“Both events were devoid of the usual mahogany associated with a political soiree. Sleek, clean lines featuring bold colors – retro-orange w/chrome furniture…As our (event) interiors evolve, so do our perspectives.”
But Meghan inarguably has unparalleled proximity to Senator McCain—insider information like “My dad has a gold razr phone” and “My Dad’s speech was peppered with an abundance of standup comedy. He was having way too much fun cracking jokes at my expense, showing off his ‘$150,000 screensaver’ on his cellphone which has a picture of us at my Columbia graduation on it!”
Oh Meghan stop, you’re making us blush.
