2008 Redux – Dirty Sexy Politics

Dirty Sexy Politics by Meghan McCain

I just sailed through Dirty Sexy Politics, the campaign trail memoir by John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain. This quick read provides Meghan’s perspective on being a scrutinized “daughter of” a presidential candidate.  She shares her trials and tribulations fitting in (or not) to her dad’s campaign, as well as the Republican Party overall.

Regardless of your own political leanings, this is an insightful look into what happens on a major political campaign. Meghan gives her honest and emotional perspective of her dad’s loss, the impact of the Palins to the campaign, and the future of the GOP.

I don’t agree with Meghan (or her dad) on a number of issues, but I came away from this book with a deeper understanding of her and her family.  On many occasions throughout the book I was touched by how resilient, positive, and patriotic the McCains are — especially John McCain, who has spent his life serving this country.

Meghan’s fairly casual style makes you feel like you’re sitting with her in some New York City coffee shop listening to all her stories. If you’re expecting classic literature, you’re barking up the wrong tree, but if you just want to get to know Meghan McCain, I recommend taking a couple days to check out Dirty Sexy Politics!
