Meghan McCain, the flashy socialite daughter of Sen. John McCain, will address the opening session of this year’s Log Cabin Republicans convention.
John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, 24, has agreed to headline the annual convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, a GOP group which advocates on behalf of gays and lesbians. “Her willingness to reach out to organizations like ours shows her commitment to growing the Republican Party,” Log Cabin convention manager Christian Berle told ABC News. “The title of Meghan McCain’s speech is ‘Winning the Next Generation — How can the Republican Party attract more young voters.'” Joining Meghan McCain at the conference will be Steve Schmidt, her father’s top 2008 strategist. The topic of Schmidt’s address is “Moving Forward.” The Log Cabin Republicans are scheduled to meet in Washington, D.C., on April 17th at a time when the GOP is seeking to rebound from an election which left the party out of power on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.
Newly-elected RNC head Michael Steele has been invited too, but hasn’t yet responded. Americans For Truth About Homosexuality spokesdouche Peter LaBarbera has been losing his shit about Steele’s LCR invite in post after post for the last week, saying, “If the Republican Party is to turn itself around, it must reach out aggressively to real, pro-family minorities like Steele himself — not homosexual activists whose agenda would restrict our precious religious and First Amendment freedoms by using the government to promote aberrant sexual lifestyles.”
