So, David Gregory, host of Meet The Press, will be on a reality TV show?

by Skip March 28, 2013

Just what ALL Conservatives have been waiting for – a Meghan McCain reality show!  Does it really show, that I’m not thrilled about her?  If not, now you know.  Simply put, I put her in the same category as the Kardashians: “er, WHY are they famous?”.
