Skip to comments.Meghan McCain on Larry King: I am pro-Obama, pro-gay marriage, but against conservative bullies

Sen. John McCain's daughter continued her all-out media tour with a stop on CNN's "Larry King Live" Tuesday night, voicing support for her father's campaign opponent, President Obama, but none for her Republican critics.
Meghan McCain, a columnist for TheDailyBeast.com, also tried to take the high road after conservative radio host Laura Ingraham had joked about the 24 year-old's weight last week.
"As far as I'm concerned with what's going on with Laura Ingraham, on my end, it's over," McCain told King. "There are nine million women in this country suffering from eating disorders. And I'm not going to be bullied around about my weight and what kind of standards I'm not fitting."
In the past few weeks since she started her career as a political columnist, McCain has angered conservatives - especially after she blasted pundit Ann Coulter, calling the author, "offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time." Ingraham had poked fun of McCain's weight on her radio show, then back-peddled on an interview with Fox News a few days later.
Meghan McCain's "progressive" - code for liberal in the eyes of many fellow Republicans - views on supporting gay marriage have also made her controversial among her party's base.
"I have taken heat, but in fairness to me, I am a different generation than the people that are giving me heat," McCain told King. "I'm 24 years old. I'm not in my 40s, I'm not in my 50s and older."
But perhaps her most controversial view as far as Republicans are concerned is her support for Obama to succeed as president.
"He's our president and when the election was over and when President Obama won, all negative feelings were gone," McCain said on the CNN show. "I support the president."
Meghan ... you’re an idiot
Well, that’s a shock. (sarc/)
Puncture one of her ear drums and the resulting rush of air to fill that vacuum would suck the shirt off your back.
Miss McLame.......shut up.
She used an incorrect conjunction. She should’ve used ‘and’ rather than ‘but’.
I’m ready for JD Hayworth to show her and her father the door next year - and it can’t come soon enough.
Tits on a bull
“Meghan ... youre an idiot”
How does that saying go? “The acorn does not fall far from the tree” Something like that...
I’m pro-Obama, but against conservative... But?? Did she ever hear about a thing called non sequitur? Probably not, among other things she never heard of.
“Conjunction junction, what’s your function?”
OK...I'm gonna hold you to that. ;)
Quick. Call the police. Someone has stolen her neck.
Little attention slut strikes again.
“...voicing support for her father’s campaign opponent, President Obama, but none for her Republican critics.”
So father, so daughter.
Boy, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
IIRC, Churchill once said that if you aren’t a liberal before you turn 30, you have no heart.
However, It remains to be seen if Mehgan McCain actually has a brain.
My dear Meghan, it’s not your physical weight that’s the problem, it’s the weight of your intellect and conservative values...or lack thereof.
