I don't know if you heard and ignored, but Jenna Bush wrote this well-received book about a single, HIV-positive mother in Panama, and everyone sort of stopped thinking of her as the stupider, drunker vainer Bush twin and that was cool. Meghan McCain has a blog that is designed to help her father appeal to younger voters and (having seen her in person) the most insanely shiny and perfect hair outside of a shampoo commercial (of which I'm really jealous). But rehabbing her party girl image by writing a book worked so well for Jenna that Meghan's going to try her hand at it, too. Only her book is going to be about how awesome her dad is. God, I hate women who insist on using the silent "H."
The book she is planning on "authoring" will be a picture book, aimed at children, and will hit bookstores just in time for the Republican National Convention, of course. Meghan says:
This book will offer children the unique opportunity to see the character building events that happened over his lifetime, experiences that led up to his current bid to become the future president of the United States.
While publisher Simon & Schuster won't disclose the financial arrangements they have with Meghan, they have promised to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a military and veterans charity. Meghan, however, has no such plans at this time. Shiny hair doesn't pay for itself.
