Meghan McCain's Big Bust
Creators Syndicate ^ | October 16, 2009 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 10/15/2009 11:18:44 PM PDT by UltraConservative

Rule No. 1 for Being Taken Seriously: Don't post pictures of yourself on the Internet that are not safe for work (NSFW).

Rule No. 2 for Being Taken Seriously: Don't whine and cry when people criticize you for posting NSFW photos.

Meghan McCain doesn't know either one of these rules. But then, Meghan McCain doesn't know much of anything.

McCain is obviously not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. This is a woman who, while appearing on Bill Maher's show, explained that she knew nothing about Ronald Reagan because "I wasn't born yet." (Paul Begala, no intellectual titan himself, quickly responded that though he hadn't been around during the French Revolution, he knew something about it.) She thinks she's being deep when she states, "I am a woman who despises labels and boxes and stereotypes." We in the real world call that a cop-out.

Somehow, The Daily Beast has seen fit to give her a column -- apparently in an attempt to test the scientific aphorism that a monkey with a typewriter can produce Shakespeare if given enough time. She has used that column to talk about how hip she is: She is pro-gay marriage, she has a tattoo, and she loves punk rock.

She has made a career by using her father's name to heighten her profile. She has also used her fat to heighten her profile: She famously started a flame-war with talk show host Laura Ingraham when Ingraham called her a "plus-sized model." McCain, who somehow parlayed that comment into a slot on "The View," responded by telling Ingraham to "kiss my fat ass."

In short, she's the Republican Roseanne, with slightly less charm.

So why should anyone care about Meghan McCain?

Because Meghan McCain is apparently attempting to foist her way into the public consciousness by using her two biggest assets -- neither of which is her brain.

McCain posts regularly on Twitter, where she lets readers experience the deep moments of her life. Readers can expect rambling nonsense, generally about weight and celebrities. Pearls of wisdom like this come flowing off of McCain's keyboard: "I know what it feels like my weight is mocked every single time I do anything publicly, Jessica Simpson stay strong. those people r pathetic." Actually, what's pathetic is that McCain's Twitter account has over 60,000 followers.

On Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2009, in yet another attempt to appear cool to her loser followers, McCain posted something historic on her Twitter account: a shot of her barely clad breasts. It's essentially a webcam pic from MySpace. Her caption: "my 'spontaneous' night in is my Andy Warhol biography and takeout .... I'm getting old."

Honestly, I'm not sure what's more shocking: that she thinks it is cutting edge to cite Andy Warhol or that she decided that the entire world needed to see her push-up cleavage.

Naturally, this caused some consternation among her more conservative followers. McCain responded to that consternation by playing the victim: "so I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut, this is why I have been considering deleting my twitter account, what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassment."

Then this: "when I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a ‘slut', I can't even tell you how hurt I am."

Oh, really, now. Meghan McCain may hold a double-digit IQ (barely), but there is no way she could post a photo like this for millions to see without recognizing that there would be some blowback. No one cares what she does when she is "alone in her apartment" -- we only care what she does when she places her front on public display.

But should we truly be surprised by this behavior? She is an attention hog, and she is getting the attention she probably lacked at home by blabbing about her butt, her boobs and her gay friends to a slobbering media eager to discredit her father. The truth is, there's nothing to see here, except a woman desperate for the spotlight.

And why should she? It's not like her family is affiliated with politics or the Republican Party or anything.

Her father does a good job of discrediting himself without any help from Meghan.

I know I’ll be in the minority here, but I just can’t bring myself to fully despise her. Yes, she’s a dumbass that does more harm than good whenever she opens her mouth (or hits her keyboard), yes she’s got a good 60 pounds of spare dough distributed around her frame, yes she’s a chip of her old man’s block, but I still keep hoping that she might have an epifany and see the conservative light and maybe make a positive impact some day.

I’m probably being way too optimistic and giving her the benefit of the doubt when she’s not deserving of it, but I’ll leave the door cracked - just a wee bit - in hopes that she’ll wise up and grow up and come in from the wilderness.

In a way I feel sorry for her. Born into wealth and political fame, so apparently she is expected to make noise. And noise she makes. She’s not Liz Cheney, she doesn’t have the capacity for this. Who does? Very few.

I really don’t understand the writer’s on the “right” being so fascinated with her. They say she has little value, than they write more and more stories about her. I guess I might take them seriously if I didn’t think this was a cynical means to an end to get more hits for their articles.

The Bush twins were more interesting and I didn’t care about them either.

Yes, she’s an airhead and a tool for the Left. So what. She’s been less successful at it than Levi Johnson. She’s a failure even at that.

That leaves us contemplating her cleavage. While I’m certain some people get a kick out of it, women don’t interest me. Even if they did, she’s only oderately attractive and that photo did her no favors.

Meghan McCain
Date of Birth: October 23, 1984

Ronald Reagan
40th President of the United States
January 20, 1981 – January 20, 1989

That would make Meghan 4 years old when Ronald left office.

I’m laughing at her. Oh yes, we all believe that she goes around her apt in a pushup bra, carelessly taking candid photos.

BS. She thought she looked cute, that’s why she posted it. Hint: Megan, you don’t look cute in this shot.

I know what you mean. But Meghan is not a child. All she knows is that daddy made it big being a “maverick” and to her, flashing her boobs on twitter in some kind of heroic betrayal of conservatives she has conjured in her mind, is “maverick.” She’s a childish chip off the old socialist block and that is not a great thing.

I would not doubt that with her Senator dad and jet setting, drug addicted (at one time, anyway) mom, she has been negelected. She could use some therapy and she needs to pull herself back from the brink of self destruction she is on. She studied art history, and that is what she should be pursing in a career...and did I mention therapy...?

My daughter born Oct. 28, 1984 knows a lot about President Reagan. She was an avid supporter of Bush I campaign. She came home from (parochial) school and said we needed to “vote for Bush”. She met Megan McCain during last year’s campaign at a function for Young Republicans in Laguna Beach. She said Megan was very quiet, not too out going and she thought Megan was shy. Too kind? I think so. Megan was most likely not comfortable out campaigning for the conservative cause. Meeting young conservatives like my daughter drove her into her ‘polite’ shell.
It all makes sense post election.

Actually, what's pathetic is that McCain's Twitter account has over 60,000 followers.

And probably 90% of those aren't "followers" but people who have morbid curiosity in seeing this in-progress train wreck.

The only time I see anything about Megan McCain is the daily stalker updates on FreeRepublic, breathlessly reporting her every belch. In the celebrity culture of Bill Maher and the View she ranks below any lady on The Hills. To the real world she ain’t great shakes, but here some seem to think she is the anti-christ. Go figure.

As for the cleavage, there are T&A threads to be found most days on FR. Usually to enthusiastic approval, at least from the boys. But on this the reaction is prissy shock and disapproval? Can we say “hypocrites” ?

It's kinda gross. It looks like she has somebody's butt in her shirt.

But it's meant to stir up controversy, obviously. All her "objections" to the contrary. She must have a team of "gay" publicists.

Shame on the McCains.

I'll vote for his opponent in the primary, but no doubt he'll be reelected in a landslide. Again. Because he's a war hero. Forty some years ago. Plus he has lots of bumper stickers and yard signs and stuff. And lots of money from the RNC. They so love their incumbents, don't you know.
