Skip to comments.Devastating Review of Meghan McCain’s Dirty, Sexy Politics
Posted on 09/13/2010 8:04:55 AM PDT by absentee
On June 20, 2002, the United States Supreme Court decreed, in the case of Atkins v. Virginia, that the mildly mentally retarded were categorically exempt from capital punishment, reasoning that fully functional adults of diminished mental capacity were as a matter of law not as culpable for their acts. Writing eloquently in dissent, Justice Scalia drew a sharp distinction between the severely mentally retarded (who are truly not responsible for their actions), and the merely stupid (the category into which Mr. Atkins undoubtedly fell). Scalia argued forcefully that, with respect to the merely stupid, at least sometimes they deserve to be punished for their antisocial and destructive behavior.
This article, of course, is not about capital punishment. It is a book review of Dirty, Sexy Politics by Meghan McCain. However, the above discussion is relevant because I initially had reservations about writing this book review at all. After all, it is clear to everyone who has read Meghan McCains twitter feed, her articles on The Daily Beast, or her ill-fated campaign blog that Meghan is not a not a paragon of clear reasoning, exemplar of familiarity with facts, nor a model of English language expertise. And after subjecting myself to 194 continuous pages of her writing, it became clear that none of the above-described works truly plumbed the depths of mental vacuity in which Ms. McCain aimlessly and cluelessly drifts.
This presented a dilemma.
It is impossible to read Dirty, Sexy Politics and come away with the impression that you have read anything other than the completely unedited ramblings of an idiot. This being a professional website for which I have a great deal of respect, I searched for a more eloquent or gentle way to accurately phrase the previous sentence but could not find one.

Based on this review, I’d say she’s a perfect fit for the MSM.
bimbo, pure and simple...
She’s not “politics”, she’s Jerry Springer guest material.
Meghan McCain answers the question, “Can one write a book if one is too stupid to read one?”

Nice turn of phrase in the review: “It is impossible to read Dirty, Sexy Politics and come away with the impression that you have read anything other than the completely unedited ramblings of an idiot.” Sweet!
She’s a fat airhead who looks like a typical one night stand. If I were John McCain and had the ability to be shamed, I’d be ashamed.
McCain and Levi Johnston seem like fairly typical Palin haters — they just aren’t bright.
Well, with people like Rich Sanchez and Wolf Blitzer already at CNN it’s hard to say she wouldn’t fit right in.
Well ... when you find yourself the offspring of someone who graduated fifth from last in a class numbering over nine hundred, there’s a pretty good chance you are going to be an air head.
Stupid is as stupid does...
Crikey - that’s enough to make the ice cubes in that cup jump right out and run away screaming in terror.
The mainstream news media look for dopes like her and give them prominence in order to spur divisions and agita in Republican ranks. That is the principle behind many of their political bookings.
Scalia is right; stupid should hurt.
Oh my word. The expression is pull your own weight - not freight.
Actually I don't think it could sound more entitled
But she is welcomed on ‘The View’ and on MSNBC Maddow. You mean that is not the route to a Republican electoral landslide?
Those liberal shows treat conservatives as stupid but Meghan as rational. Why? Because she is their new idiot victim like Cindy Sheenan to be used and then cast a side when no longer useful.
Yep. But with Meghan, it's always a struggle to see which will emerge victorious: her cluelessness or her viciousness.
You think the Left knows how to use Meghan now, can you imagine how much worse it would have been if he had won the 2008 election?
She is typical of the Obama-Voting Public. Which public, the last time it counted, totaled up 53% of the popular vote for The Mombasa Moonbeam.
Team Obama and their house organ The MSM, are evil, not dumb. Meghan is their Kim Kardashian; their Paris Hilton; their Brittany Spears; each of whom means far more to a key democrat constituency than who their congressman, or even mayor, might be. "Hey, let's make Barry 7th Grade Class President! He's way cool ... and "black," too!!"
Got $100 that says Meghan has no idea who her county commissioners are, or who's on the Supreme Court. And you can put that on her Facebook Page.
great review. The MSM loves this idiot daughter of McCain, and they think we are so dumb that if MainStreamMedia anoints her a credible Republican spokesman, mission accomplished. Spoiler in place, the GOP will split down the middle.
But America is not dumb enough to trust the observations of the spoiled child of a RINO with an obvious chip on her shoulder and a transparently shallow liberal-hip world view. Her paranoid tantrums grew tiresome years ago, and she has no audience.
Oh my... that’s gonna leave a mark. Devastating, indeed.
“Shes a fat airhead who looks like a typical one night stand. If I were John McCain and had the ability to be shamed, Id be ashamed.”
Meghan doesn’t breate without McCain’s okay. He has the power to shut this dimwit up, he doesn’t want to. Most of her rambling sounds just like him.
*On the View: Meghan McCain Blasts Tea Parties
Sen. John McCains daughter says the movement is filled with innate racism.
Does ANYONE think Meghan isnt doing her fathers bidding???
BTW...John McCain doesn’t have the ability to be shamed.
” Meghan McCain answers the question, Can one write a book if one is too stupid to read one? “
“...It is impossible to read Dirty, Sexy Politics and come away with the impression that you have read anything other than the completely unedited ramblings of an idiot. ...”
Quote of the day.
Nice rack, though...(Grinning)
(hey...I gots ta be ME...)
Admittedly, it’s not a crime to be stupid. Write a book to prove that you are, to make certain that everyone knows about it!
I'm willing to bet that Meghan has never read one conservative tract in her entire life. Someone should grill her (not literally, too much fat) by asking her to identify Hayek, Sowell, and other notable conservative writers and thinkers. She's lived her life in a very small bubble. Nothing much has intruded into it.
Agreed... idiot!... with nice boobs. :-)
The HEADLIGHTS are on, but nobody’s driving the car??? snicker, snicker...
(Hmmm...methinks this can spiral waaaaaaaaaaaay down to the depths here, real quickly...heheheh)
” Mama had a lotta money, but momma wanted power, so she bought daddy. Daddy was for sale. It was a corporate merger.”
” The only person I know who is more power hungray than Momma, is Daddy. Daddy will say or do anything to attain power. Nothing is beneath Daddy. I’m sorta following in his footsteps “
There.....I saved y’all 24 dollars.
yeah, but the REAL question is this:
Are they real, or did Momma buy those too (or “those two”... as it were)??
Reasonable minds gots ta know...
Hey, gee, thanks man! You’re really a stand up guy! I appreciate it!
nah, fat girl boobies tend to be ‘heavy’ as well...
Whoever “totally” made that bookcover “totally” omitted the use of “totally”, “totally”.
In the final analysis, however, I determined that most of Meghans flaws such as her unbearable narcissism, delusions of persecution, anti-religious bigotry, and mendacity couldnt be chalked up to her manifestly below-average intelligence. These are blameworthy traits born of a malfunctioning moral compass, and they are laid bare in spades on every page...
OK, maybe that was a little negative. But there are positive things too.
Each subsequent page of this book contains one grisly crime against the English language after another.
Well, that wasn't one of them. But it does get better.
That a graduate of Columbia University, as Ms. McCain purports to be, produced writing this shoddy is bad; that a publishing company let this authorial abortion go to print is an insult to the collective self-worth of our thinking nation.
(Sniffle! Sob!) Leave Meghan alone!
The last line of the book implores readers not to let Meghan pick up this torch alone.
Ah, that last little turdlet falls into the bowl with a melodious plunk. No wonder no editor would put her name on this thing. Leave the torch lay, Meghan, please. We're not going where you're leading and what the torchlight reveals isn't very flattering.
AH! A mammarianologist!!!! Hahahah! That’s the way to keep abreast of the issue...
(I jes cant’s stop myselfs!!!)
Clearly, the publisher must have thought it was funny to send that book out unedited. The joke wouldn't work if you had somebody try to clear it up.
Thanks alot AZ.
We’re so easy to side track!... one mention of big boobs and we’re TOTALLY off track! At least we’re predictable! :-)
Whose rack? The “cupholder”?
generally speaking, we stay focused on the issues, BUT in m&ms case, theres really only 2 prominent issues worth discussing...everything else is comic relief with the spawn of jon...
Using that fat pig’s name and the word “sexy” in same sentence should be outlawed.
