Meghan McCain's post this week, Musings on Politics from a Pop Culture Girl, had a very sweet graphic of her Dad, done in the pop graphic style of Shepard Fairey's Obama Poster. It was sad to see that she is doing an iteration of a pop culture style made famous in the graphic of her father's opponent, associated with the word hope. But oh well. It is sweet that she features her father as a hero, which he is, and every daughter should have a hero for a father. McCain is a good man, I believe. And his daughter's tribute is sweet.
It is too bad that a cool graphic using the word hero, as Obama used hope/change, couldn't have gained viral traction. It would have been cool. Woulda Shoulda.
Maureen Dowd asks questions that stump me, too: Why did he allow his campaign to become a host body for a Bush virus looking for someplace to infect? .... Why did a politician who once knew how to play the game so well, who was once so beloved by people of very different political stripes, allow his campaign to get whiny, angry, vengeful and bitter?
McCain turned in a great performance w/ Tina Fey as Sarah Palin last night on SNL. What a good sport. How brave. He pulled it off. His genuine side was there.
