The Totally Meghan McCain Letter
Townhall ^ | October 7, 2011 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 10/07/2011 6:21:32 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Anyone who has met me knows I'm totally like, no fan of 26-year-old woman Meghan McCain. I found her latest threat to sue Erick Erickson at RedState.com for "illegally using her byline" on Leon Wolf's "Totally Meghan McCain" parody columns absolutely hilarious. Even better, McCain claimed the parodies, which were poorly written on purpose, could be confused with her real columns at The Daily Best.

The buxom blogette tweeted:

Sexist? Really?

Here is part of the parody post that triggered McCain's lawsuit threat:

Firstly in the first place, some people had a question about my very obvious statement, “I don’t necessarily agree that Rick Perry is George Bush on crack, but he could definitely be described as George Bush 2.0.” The question, I have most often, been asked, is why I did not include literally anything in the piece to back up this claim or point out, the places where Perry and Bush are similar, the reason for that being simple. Hello? They are both from Texas. I guess I should apologize for, assuming that most people knew that already, but I guess they don’t. Well I am here to tell you in case you didn’t know: both George W. Bush and Rick Perry are from Texas. Now, in the entire time I have been paying attention to politics, there has only been one President of the United States elected from Texas. And if electing someone, from Texas was a winning strategy, then obviously, there would have been more.

Some ignorant jerk, clearly who doesn’t know about the young people, pointed out that George W. Bush 1.0 won, two elections, which is two more than my dad did. Let me just respond to that jerk by saying that George W. Bush only won those elections because he didn’t have to go against my dad either time. FACE!

RedState evenutally took down the "Totally Meghan McCain" parody columns simply to avoid the lawyer hassle, but now PajamasMedia is offering to publish the columns, prompting Wolf's attorney to send a letter to McCain's legal representation. Here are some excerpts:

My client forwarded me your September 23, 2011 letter to Eric(sic) Ericson(sic) concerning the “Totally Meghan McCain” parodies at RedState.com. I confess that I first took the letter itself as a metatextual parody. To my surprise, on a re-reading, I discovered that you were apparently serious.

The subject matter of your letter is a fairly obvious parody to any person of even barely functional literacy. Thus – and your client probably didn’t tell you this – even she recognized that the posts were parodies (or “parody’s,” as she put it). At approximately 8:25 p.m. EDT on September 17th, your client posted to her Twitter feed, “I don’t care about parody’s(sic) or fake names – but falsely putting my name on someone else’s writing is illegal.” She then subsequently deleted this Tweet, presumably when someone told her that “parody’s” were constitutionally protected and it might look bad in a subsequent lawsuit if she were caught admitting in public that these posts were obvious parodies. Not to worry: My client has screenshots.

My client will not be bullied out of exercising his First Amendment right to make clear his belief that your client is a spoiled, brainless twit who is cheapening the political discourse in this country. Therefore, henceforth, the “Totally Meghan McCain” series may be found at http://pajamasmedia.com for your client’s reading pleasure.

Lastly in the last place, you can read the full letter here.

LOL-

She posts that she knows of the “parody’s”sic
but is going after them for ??.. her name as a byline?

and of course she can get a $$ lawyer to try and go
after someone- her daddy still has a little left over cash from his failed campaign war chest.

In the full letter he makes a snide — and well aimed shot at her lawyer.

Meghan McCain and Bristol Palin are two people who should just STFU. Every time they open their mouths they make fools of themselves and are just being used as tools for the liberal media.

Meghan McCain and Erick Erikson: reminds me of tomorrow's Minnesota - Purdue football game: a pair of losers.

General, and useful rule of thumb for daughters of politicans attempting to capitalize on daddy's fame:

If you chest measurement exceeds your IQ you should refrain from any public commentary

Ole boobs McCain doesn’t want any sexism? Where’s that degrading “sexy” self portrait she put up on twitter?

As I recall, McCain has been whinning in public about her less than adequate slut sex life as a Republican, too. But don’t be sexist with the sex pot.

I guess when your parents are so self involved and busy saving the world, you might become a bit lost. Too bad she doesn’t see what a laughing stock she is. Sad. Sad.

Read Wolf’s (author of The Real Meagan McCain) lawyers letter in full. It’s one of the best things going. http://pajamasmedia.com/lifestyle/files/2011/10/McCain-Letter.pdf It’s a classic
