Meghan McCain Fires Back at Ann Coulter's Lethal Joke
Yahoo ^ | 04/11/2013 | Alisa Wiersema

They're at it again- Ann Coulter and Meghan McCain are in a Twitter war. The reason for the bickering? Ann Coulter stated that Meghan McCain should be killed in a blog posted on her own website, as well as Fox Nation.

"MSNBC's Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats' gun proposals. (Let's start with Meghan McCain!)" the blog said before it was taken down earlier this morning.

McCain responded with a series of Tweets:

Apparently Ann Coulter made a joke about me being killed in a recent column. I should expect nothing less but disgusted regardless.

— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 11, 2013

My father is a very famous politician. My family gets a lot of threats. Joking about me being killed really isn't funny or appropriate.

— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) April 11, 2013

The feud between the two conservative women has a long-standing history. Three years ago, McCain wrote an opinion column for The Daily Beast airing her grievances with the Republican Party, and cited Coulter as one of the individuals who perpetuates negative stereotypes:

"…certain individuals continue to perpetuate negative stereotypes about Republicans. Especially Republican women. Who do I feel is the biggest culprit? Ann Coulter. I straight up don't understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time… I hope viewers understand Ann Coulter is not the woman we Republicans need representing us right now"

Cindy McCain, Meghan's mother and wife of Senator John McCain, also jumped in the battle in defense of her daughter:

I’m sorry, but Ann Coulter is a straight-up jackass. If I were to tweet, “I think Ann Coulter should be drawn and quartered; you know, to prove she’s actually a woman....just kidding!!!”, Ann would be screaming, “OMG! IT’S A DEATH THREAT AGAINST ME!”

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Making threats against people’s safety, calling them names, mocking them, and acting like a**holes is for the libs.

NOT us.

I think Ann was wrong. I don't need to be negatively stereotyped..the media is doing a brilliant job on that as they take away my gun rights.
Twitter land is a hell hole/proving-once again, it is. Now, we will have to hear from Megan all over the news. These actions are no better than that ( evil Imo) creep on MSNBC.

The feud between the two conservative women....

There is nothing "conservative" about McCain. She takes on the title only to be the token in any group of pundits blabbing on MSNBC at any given time or topic slamming Republicans.

She can only dream of being as relevant as Ann Coulter.

This lethal joke menace must end! I propose a background check on all comediennes. A ten world limit on all lethal jokes and a database of all pranksters with history of mental illness and violent lethal joke offenders.

Are you nuts? You defininetly don't know what you are talking about. I have NEVER heard Ann Coulter whine or complain about being picked on. Ann Coulter is far from a thin skinned whining "victim". She is the only conservative who relishes going in front of the opposition during interveiws and college tours. She can teach Sarah Plain a thing or two about how to deal with getting trashed in the press and how to come out fighting. That girl can hold her own better than any Liberal out there.

oh please... Meghan McCain puts herself out there and is a fair target for this kind of political remark... Ann's response was witty... the jack ass in this situation is Martin Bashir...

Oh puhleeeese......gag me with a spoon. The most positive thing about these two so-called conservatives is that they are not biologically reproducing. Now had only John McCain’s father had that same trait.

I suspect the point wasn't that Ann would cry if somebody said this about her. It was more that she'd take exception to being treated like this herself.

She'd make a big issue about it. She might not whine about it, but she'd regard it as a cheap shot if somebody said it about her.

I don't know. "You can dish it out but you can't take it" is an objection people often make. If you can more or less take it, are you always justified in dishing it out?

What concerns me more is people asking why McCain didn't go after Bashir. It's because Coulter got in the way and made it about the McCains and herself.

I don't suppose Meghan McCain would go after Martin Bashir publicly if this hadn't happened, but she's more than justified in responding to Ann Coulter.

Why does Coulter do these things? The end-result of her crass bomb-throwing is that sicko Bashir’s offensive comment gets shoved aside and marginalized by her own over-the-top “witticism,” and by personalizing the whole thing, that idiot blobgirl McCain once again gets the media spotlight (which she so craves) to play victim. Backfire, all around.

I’m tired of this phony outrage. A joke is a joke. People need to get off their high horses on both sides. I bet when this goes the opposite direction the people who are feigning outrage now will be on the opposite side.

Yeah - Meghan really looks like that pic on the left alright.
Too bad it's hidden inside a six inch thick layer of lard.

Some women bring thoughts of warm moonlit nights and romance.
Meghan makes us think of Bacon Flavored Spam.

Aw c’mon guys - Meghan is kinda cute in a Miss Piggyish sort of way. Reminds me of the old song “Hugging and Chalking”.
