Miss South Carolina 2007 has come on board the Straight Talk Express.
Ashley Zais, a hot beauty queen and recent graduate of Wofford College, will serve as John McCain's intern coordinator at the campaign's HQ.
She is 21, five-ten, blue-eyed, drop-dead gorgeous and apparently, a Republican. One can only wonder how Cindy McCain feels about this ...
In any case, Ashley met John McCain last year when the senator gave a speech at South Carolina's Newberry College, where her father is president.
Ashley Zais' father is Mitchell Zais, a retired Army general, and a man who McCain became friendly with after Zais published a piece in 2006 critical of how former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's Pentagon had handled the Iraq war.
Ashley Zais: Reason #1 to apply for a John McCain campaign internship!
All we have to say is that Democratic frontrunner Barack Obama had better get on the phone and hire Amber Lee Ettinger as his intern coordinator really quick if he expects to compete with this come November. Yowza.
Ashley Zais, on a side note, is not the same South Carolina beauty queen who became a YouTube legend last year after her painful flub of a paegant question.
That would be Miss Teen South Carolina, Lauren Caitlin Upton!
