Meghan McCain's 7 Tips for Republican Hopefuls
The Daily Beast ^ | June 21, 2011 | Meghan McCain

Posted on 06/21/2011 8:12:03 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

With last week's debate behind them, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, and others have officially kicked off the race for the GOP presidential nomination. But do any of them have the chops to topple Obama in 2012? Meghan McCain offers seven tips on what they should do between now and then.

Dear Republican candidates running for president in 2012:

You are up against one of the most media-beloved presidents in history, one journalists will do almost anything to protect. You are running against a man who has created a cult following and a narrative that transcends popular culture. How is it possible that this is the best we’re doing so far?

Now, before we get too ahead of ourselves, it is the beginning of summer and not exactly in the fall fever of primary politics. But just like an awkward blind date, you need a good opening line. The average American can’t tell you the difference between Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman (yet). Most young voters my age don't remember Newt Gingrich's claim to fame; after all, the Clinton impeachment trial was so ‘90s.

Somehow all of her helpful advice just couldn’t land her duddy the Presidency.

Why do the losers always seem to know how “best to win”? I’d go to any McLame for advice on how to run a successful Presidential campaign about like I would have gone to Liz Taylor for advice on a successful marriage.

Tip No. 6: Make Friends With Rachel Maddow. You’ve got to do interviews outside of Fox News. This isn't an option, you can't become president talking only to Greta Van Susteren.

Outside of the last one: Tip No. 7: This is the most important...forget the extreme right, I like the above the best.

Hmmm, just how many campaigns did she organize and run? Discounting her dad's, of course. What a little twit, so full of herself, and for no earthly reason.

It’s a good way of knowing what the establishment GOP thinks, something that we need to defeat as soundly as the Democrats.

I didn’t get past the Obama is cool part. What is cool about Obama. He is a complete dweeb, schmuck, pansy, fool etc. and that’s not even taking into account all the damage he has done since taking office with his anti-American policies.

Googling for “Any one in the John McCain family with a brain”

Getting constant “searching”

“Searching”

Ah, finally - results....

“Cannot locate ‘Any one in the John McCain family with a brain.’ Quite wasting our time.”

For those that don't want to read Meghan claptrap, written with all the skill of a twelve year old. It's pretty much what you would think, an Anti-Palin, Anti-Bachmann screed and a push for a “moderate”. Basically telling the candidates to ignore the conservative base and move to the center, because the base will vote for whoever gets the nomination anyway.

I fail to understand how this ditzy girl gets published or, more to the point, why anyone would post her drivel here on FR.

She’s irrelevant and not worth bandwidth, but to each his own.

Someone stole Meghan's computer and typed out the intro and first five points. (It might have even been her pet cat dancing on the keys) They actually made some sense. Then she wrestled the computer back and typed the last two (6: Make Friends With Rachel Maddow and 7: This is the most important...forget the extreme right.) with he usual insane view on Republicanism.

Honestly, there ought to be an FR rule about any posting involving fat, drunk, clueless beer heiress Meaghan McCain. No one cares what this overweight trust fund kid thinks. Tip for Meaghan: ease up on the cheeseburgers and pastry.

Meghan dear, just because daddy is a senator (a RINO) doesn’t mean we need to follow you or your advice, nor do we need your opinion so keep it to yourself. One bit of advice from me though. It would be great for Arizona and the country as a whole if you would tell daddy to ride into the sunset and take Goober Graham with him.

"My daughter will attempt to screw the GOP for us
just like last time. Stop getting so excited, Milt."

Tip No 4: Be Prepared to Outlast Palin Fever.
The big question is if Sarah Palin will
decide to run for president.
It's anyone's guess at this point,
and I don't think even she knows the answer.
If she enters the race,
there will be a proverbial tsunami
of media coverage for months.
Don’t panic and ride it out."

Tips 1-5 were not bad, if rather obvious. Then she went all “run to the middle” which is how somebody ..... now who was that? ..... lost to Obama.

You are up against one of the most media-beloved presidents in history, one journalists will do almost anything to protect. You are running against a man who has created a cult following and a narrative that transcends popular culture.

Meghan has at least part of that part right.

Though I don't know what she means by "a narrative that transcends popular culture."

Last I checked, Obozo has pretty much a blank narrative. Nobody knows how a smarmy little brat with a drug problem from a rich preppy school in Hawaii got into Columbia, Harvard and landed a teaching position on the University of Chicago Law School faculty fresh out of college. He is more a product of the media-entertainment complex than anything else.

If it wasn't for freepers reading her stuff to marvel at her, there'd be nobody reading her at all.

I'm including myself in that group. I can't stop. She's too perfectly stupid and wrong to ignore.

In this way, her brain is analogous to Helen Thomas' face.

MEGoody's 7 tips for Meghan McCain:

1. Lose some weight. No one likes a big mouthed, loser, but they like a fat, big mouthed, loser even less.

2. Stop talking. Every time you open your mouth, you seem to reinforce that "loser" image.

3. Stick to what you know. I realize it isn't much, but you could have quite a happy life spending your time coloring and doing "Connect the Dots" puzzles.

4. Get some morals. You'll be a lot less unhappy and diseased if you stop playing the skank.

5. Get some decent clothes. In addition to not playin gthe skank, you have to stop dressing like one.

6. Get an actual job. Even a job cleaning up doggie doo in the local pet store would have more meaning than what you are doing with your life now.

7. Stop trying to ride Daddy's coattails. Those coattails barely cover his behind - they simply can't carry you as well.
