Meghan McCain's GWU speech nearly ruined by Twitter flap
Doesn't anyone talk anymore? A scheduled speech by Meghan McCain experienced near-death-by-Twitter this week. A few George Washington University student groups had teamed up to bring the outspoken political spawn to campus next month, including the College Republicans and gay-rights group Allied in Pride. But when McCain tweeted that her role would be "keynote" at Allied's Marriage Equality Week (she supports gay marriage), the CRs (who oppose it) announced Tuesday that they'd withdraw support. Which prompted McCain to tweet again that she had been "disinvited." Which she wasn't -- the CRs' contribution was just $100 of her $10K fee, and other groups covered it. Allied's Michael Komo told us that it was all a misunderstanding, that McCain's larger topic is "redefining Republicanism." Her Feb. 9 speech is still on, in case you're wondering.
