Sarah Palin is becoming less like a movie star and more like a crazy relative that the young Republican set has to make excuses for. On The Howard Stern Show this week, Meghan McCain explained her relationship with Sarah Palin in a frank and honest manner. McCain recounted her initial impressions when she was introduced to Palin back in 2008, when her father was running for office.

Back then, Mccain greeted Palin as a star-struck kid, and looked up to her. “When I first met her, I really liked her because I thought she was a politician like I’d never seen,” said McCain. “She was beautiful, she had children, she had a newborn baby. And, you know, most politicians aren’t like that. They’re much older, and I didn’t have a lot to relate to them about.”

That relationship has changed — and it seems Meghan doesn’t really want Palin hogging the spotlight. In fact, maybe Palin can go away now because she’s embarrassing the Young Republican set?

“And now, it’s very awkward because everybody asks me and, you know, she’s getting arrested or her children are getting arrested, whatever, for brawling and bar fights,” McCain told Stern.

“When people ask me about it,” McCain said, “it’s like my crazy aunt or something that people all want to tell me about.”

Don’t these old unhip Republicans know Meghan really prefers to talk about important things — like how out of touch the older GOP set really is?

And how being a young Republican that supports gay marriage “is a bitch”?
