Megan McCain at the George Washington University

Meghan McCain spoke at The George Washington University last Thursday after a conflict with the GW Young America’s Foundation and College Republicans over McCain’s scheduled appearance with Allied in Pride, the campus’ gay rights group. With a few digs at the College Republicans, she spoke about the need for the Republican Party to expand its tent.  How to do the College Republicans react?

We want to protest McCain’s version of ‘Redefining Republicanism.  If you’re not toeing the party line then you’re not really that party affiliation.

From the GW Hatchet:

“I am not Ann Coulter. I am not Glenn Beck. I am not trying to be a pundit. I am not trying to have a show on FOX,” McCain said. “My intention is to promote dialogue in this country.”

“I do [support marriage equality], got that George Washington Young Republicans?” McCain said in reference to the GW College Republicans’ January withdrawal of financial support for her speech. The CRs removed their support from the event after saying that they had been misinformed of the purpose of McCain’s talk.

“I had to get that little jab in,” she added to some laughs.
