1. Her hair, make-up, high heels, and love of sparkly clothing with sequins.
2. How mean Jenna Bush was for not wanting to hang out with her when she visited the White House.
3. How desperately she wanted to be "First Daughter," and how girls, mainly Chelsea Clinton, though she's never actually mentioned by name, are uptight and ungrateful and should be more appreciative and excited that they get to be members of the super special "daughters-of" club.
4. How she just can't help dropping the F-word, even when she's in a professional setting, like a presidential campaign. She just can't help it, guys! It, like, slips out! That's, like, just who she is and how she talks!
5. How her mother, Cindy, told Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston that she'd love to be their child's godmother, and how sooooo rude it was that Bristol and Levi weren't flattered by this and didn't take her up on the offer.
6. How she got wasted in Nashville then announced to everyone at a bar that her dad was running for president.
7. How she got so hopped up on Xanax that she missed several campaign stops the day before the election day.
8. The super gross hotels rooms she had to stay in while on the road with her dad's campaign. And how, like, one time she and her friends left a bunch of food outside a mean campaign reporter's hotel room so he'd step on it when he walked out into the hall the next morning. Isn't that, like, the funniest thing ever?
9. How totally unfair it was that the Palins, including 7-year-old Piper, had people to do their hair and make-up for them, meanwhile Meghan had to do her own hair and make-up. I mean, can you believe that?!?

I would have been ashamed to admit to taking shared Xanax on ELECTION DAY if my mother had a history of prescription drug abuse, but Meghan "has no secrets". Meghan has no sense of responsibility or care for how she makes her family look and instead blames everyone around her. Talking repeatedly of sitting around in her "jammies and UGGS" with unbrushed hair sobbing about one slight or another, she just does not present herself in a good light. Do they not teach professionalism at Columbia?
Meghan is also a walking contradiction. She swears she doesn't drink much, yet refers to the best night ever with John Rich in which she publically speaks about her dad's election and then is black out drunk the rest of the night. She states she is anti-drug yet takes Xanax not prescribed to her on election day. She states that she never falls asleep in her clothes with her make up on, yet continues to describe atleast 3 more occasions of that exact thing happening.Read more ›
Some of her observances of the political world around her are astute, but most are her very personal opinions on how she was treated and the actions of others working on the campaign trail. She does write of her feelings of love of the country and especially of what the Republican party used to be and what she wants it to become again.
Whatever your political leanings this might be an interesting insight to political campaigns. You might be able to see both viewpoints through all her personal wining about her not being included in so many of her parent's events; but then she admits she refuses to wear the pin the Secret Service has family members and others wear so that they can more easy tell who is unauthorized. She bewails the fact, "can't they just remember my face". She is not a team player, she is her own person and remains so after the defeat of her father. She is supposed to drive to Sedona to be with the family, but instead chooses to stay a few days with her friends. When she finally goes to the family cabin, with her friends, her parents would come into the room and want to talk, but she continues to play their Rock Band game.
Much of her narration is honest and heartfelt. She does admit that maybe she had a chip on her shoulder or was jealous of the attention the Palin family received. She is her own person and seems to be honest in the story she tells.
