As POLITICO reports, she is running a campaign for the New York state Senate as a conservative. She has achieved instant name recognition with her pink website. Here you can visit it and enjoy the music. Her opponent is state senator Kevin Parker of the 21st District in Brooklyn.
Meyer has noted, "The Senate's not just a bunch of old people." She is under-30. In fact, she is 22. To those who question her experience in politics, she replies that she has no experience in corruption.
Could this be the edgy version of a Sarah Palin who had captured national attention four years ago? It's possible. What Meyer has going for her is youth. America seems to have turned binary. There are we Baby Boomers who are living off entitlements like Social Security and Medicare, in addition to hanging on to jobs as equity partners at law firms. Then there are the non-Baby Boomers who struggle to find a place for themselves in an economy which keeps shifting under them. Amidst those shifts, experience has given Baby Boomers the survival advantage. We can speedread macro developments in industries and micro ones on the level of each company and its gatekeepers.
Meyer, if she doesn't overplay her hand, could become the voice of the non-Boomer. On that ticket, Barack Obama got elected.
