Meghan McCain, the daughter of Senior United States Senator and former Republican presidential candidate John McCain, is appearing in Playboy this month. But wait, before you hastily open Google to find pictures from her shoot to laugh or gawk or whatever at, we should mention that she is fully clothed and merely interviewed for their "20 Questions" feature in the magazine.
Kind of a letdown, but her answers are kind of amusing nonetheless, and give us a lot of insight into who exactly Meghan is. For instance, she is "strictly dickly."
PLAYBOY: Say a little more about the hanging-out-in-bed-with-girlfriends part.
MCCAIN: Watch it, mister. My friends from home came over to support me, and we got in my parents' big bed. They have this huge California king and we just stayed up eating ice cream. I'm not a lesbian, if that's what you're asking. I'd be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I'm not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I'm strictly dickly. I can't help it. I love sex and I love men.
The interview does cover her reaction to the infamous 2008 election, which saw her father lose presidency of the United State to Democratic candidate Barack Obama. She says:
PLAYBOY: Do you have any tips for the offspring of campaigners on the election trail?
MCCAIN: Get sleep, be nice and shut up. I wasn’t always a peach to be around. I could have been nicer to the Secret Service and some staffers, and I voiced my opinion way too much. It’s really stressful, though. The day before Election Day, I almost overdosed on Xanax. I had gained a lot of weight. I went up four sizes thanks to Starbucks and Snickers. Obamamania was at its height. I ended up going to Sedona with my girlfriends. All we did was play Rock Band for days and days and eat and sleep and hang out in bed watching TV. I was done.
So, there you have it. If you're still interested (really? why?) you can read the rest of the interview here.
