Hey, everyone's favorite Republican fameball, Meghan McCain, is in the "very, very baby stages of some television stuff." Which means, yes, there is definitely going to be a television show featuring the daughter of John McCain. But no reality TV!
After lunch, when we convoyed to the Valley Ho and sat around a Jetsons-style bar table over fizzy drinks, she confided that she was in the "very, very baby stages of some television stuff, just development." She quickly added, "I would never do a reality show, ever."
Could a "Meghan McCain Show" be a reasonable future move? "It's easy to imagine that she could pull it off," [Daily Beast executive editor Edward Felsenthal] said. ["The View" Host Sherri Shepherd] had a still stronger reaction, "I absolutely see Meghan in television. When she comes on and talks she puts the ideologies in practical terms, and she makes it so you understand." She added, "Meghan will never have to go on ‘Dancing with the Stars.' "
Hear that, Bristol? You had to go on "Dancing with the Stars".
We see how the Palin/McCain dichotomy established in 2008 lives on as the families transition from their failed attempts at political success to their conquest of the media:
Palin: Dumb + trashy + crazy = Reality television
McCain: Less dumb + trashy-classy + boring = Talk shows
