Meegan McCAIN's dad-in-law got a rap on the knuckles, but her Federalist hubby is a pip!1

So one thing (minor news about Douglas DOMENESH) led to another (reasearching to find out how big a deal I have to worry about), and then I had an eye-opening (for me) result, about his son/Meegan's hubby.

The big epiphany for me was finding out what a big scoundrel the wingnut McCAIN hubby is, given her being a princess and her drooling over what a wingnut love she found for herself, and that The Federalist, which I had the image of as being a big wingnut boogeyman running the wingnut machine, is just a dirty little wingnut lego thing.
