Meghan McCain hates Howlin' Wolf?

You know what Crazy Cousin John doesn't get enough credit for? Having a hot blonde blogger daughter. Meghan McCain recently shared her list of favorite blues tunes, topped by B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone." A lot of classics there: Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Son House, T-Bone Walker. But as I'm looking at this list, a question looms large in my mind.

Why no Howlin' Wolf? Is the would-be First Daughter prejudiced against the blues legend who gave us "Ain't Superstitious," "Little Red Rooster" and the immortal "Wang Dang Doodle"?

The conspicuous absence of Chester Arthur "Howlin' Wolf" Burnett from her playlist raises the possibility that Meghan is the kind of low-down, no-good, two-timing evil-hearted woman that makes a bluesman want to pick up his dobro and walk out that door. Just say good-bye, and she won't see him no more.

Why have the major media ignored the incipient Bluesgate scandal?
