(Newser) – Meghan McCain continues her Generation Y rebellion within the GOP with a blog on a hottie congressman she admits discovering from beefcake shots on TMZ. In her Daily Beast column, McCain sees 27-year-old Aaron Schock of Illinois as the party's best hope of reinventing its stodgy image. "Schock should play his youth to his advantage, and so should the GOP. In a party stereotyped as one for old, white men, Schock has made a marked impression on my generation’s zeitgeist."

Schock, says McCain, is progressive in mindset but conservative in principle. Noting that he is only 3 years older than her, McCain says "he can relay a message in ways my father never could. ... If nothing else, in an Obama-crazed land, he is getting people’s attention and putting another fresh face at the center of what it is too often perceived as an old-news, boring party."

Meghan McCain is a cuties, but stating someone from Il is the future of the GOP is idiotic, especially since her party has been talking down IL since the election

Image over substance won't save the GOP.
