Meghan McCain: Can we ban mentioning her on FR???
4-20-2009 | fishtank

Posted on 04/20/2009 12:40:16 PM PDT by fishtank

I am getting tired of seeing daily threads about Meghan McCain almost daily on FR. I don't watch network TV, and honestly never heard of her until several weeks ago.

Could we just quit posting about her already, unless there is TRULY a news article that concerns her?????

Every time she opens her mouth, I think “Uh oh, here comes another bimbo erruption”

Yea, let’s use her codename instead.

It’s “Fat-Rino-Fag Hag”.

LOL

You mean the future of the republican party? Something tells me she is here at FR to stay.

No one ever asks her why she is not a democrat, and what she loves about the R party besides her RINO dad.

I agree. She Twitters all day long and we’re seeing people repeat post after post.

She’s simply not newsworthy.

It lowers the level of Free Republic to publish stuff about such a totally insignificant person, it gives her publicity that otherwise she will not get...

The MSM spent a lot of time on a totally insignificant person, Barack Obama, and what they did eventually got him elected President. The influence of certain mediums are amazing.

She’s John McCain’s daughter. That’s her claim to fame. Please, she has no credibility at all. Her father WAS a hero. Now he’s just a confused old man who doesn’t know what he stands for. I agree. Just leave her out of this. The libs love her. That’s reason enough to ignore her.

Poor Meghan... little chubby chick’s being used like a dancing bear by the left... she’s hoping that this will be just what she needs to get included in the glam world of Hollywood liberals.

And they’re playing right along with it, laughing behind their backs at the fat little “Republican” girl who’s willing to grovel for admission to their putrid clique...

Right, her 15 minutes is up. Boycott her embarrassing self-aggrandizing.

Conversely

“Know thine enemy” comes to mind

We have to stop ignoring those who would destroy us. She is a threat both politically and socially. We must continue to know and understand her brand of mental disorder

With this last exception, I, for one, will no longer respond to any thread about her. Just let ‘em die. If we all do it, it should cause her to go face down in a bag of Doritos. It’s the attention she’s craving. Let’s not give it to her. Let her see that no one here shows any interest in her whatsoever. Not even enough interest to ban threads about her.

But imposing a ban on her, gives her more importance than she really deserves.

You wrote “daily” and “almost daily”. So you are forgiven. I agree on banning the Meghan McCain threads, I cannot understand why they get any traction.

Are you kidding me? She's nothing more than a 24 year old, attention seeking, misguided, spoiled brat who ought to see about signing a contract with Nutri-system to get her attention that way.

I am also tired of hearing about:
Chrsitopher Dodd
Specter
Barney Frank
Al Franken
Hillary
Harry Reid
Nancy Pelosi
and a whole list of others.

Problem is that to ban their mention creates blind spots in the news coverage.

Why not just ban ditzy items that contain no real news except the type that is normally confined to grocery check-out stand magazines.

IMHO she is a nothing, who has never held a serious job or position in her life and giving her so much attention only feeds the media continuing to push her as the “new” face of the GOP... soooooooooooooooooo PLEASE no more MMc stories... ignore her and hope she goes away.

I’m not slamming you for posting them, but I don’t find her amusing.

I find her vacuous, boring, trite, and of very little consequence. Sadly, this isn’t keeping her off the media radar.

Thus, I appreciate seeing threads on her, as she is what a lot of people are seeing as representative of Conservatives right now.

So, like you said - if you don’t like it, ignore it.

I couldn't explain her better. And I agree she's not amusing. But what would be gained from banishment? The MSM would still use her. Pundits would still discuss her (all because she's giving them fodder). She'd still have her goofy blog and Twitter page. So what would we accomplish? Yet beyond that, she's a weak individual who doesn't know how to cope with the loss of media attention after the election. She took the attention personally, and now the need's still there. That's sad, as well as a potentially serious issue. Isn't that a legitimate topic?

I know you don't disagree with this, I'm just pointing out the uselessness of such a move. If anyone doesn't want to hear about her, just ignore the threads as you've said. But why deprive others of a chance for a little light commentary, as well as some possibly serious discussion?

That is one hell of a beaver on that babe! We need more beaver shots here at FR. Fuzzy little things that they are would keep a lot of us much more interested with a couple of beaver breaks per day. You know, something to lighten things up a bit. We could even have a contest of who has the best beaver. Probably get a lot of entries.

Just a thought

Given the management’s prior disgust with John McCain I would think the request is reasonable;However, beware of 180 degree flips.

What you do is your own business. But banning Meghan articles from FR will have the very opposite effect cyber-wise from what you might like to see as a result.

Why not just ignore the threads

Absolutely. This whole "free speech" thing is waaaaay overrated, and frankly, getting a little out of hand.

Truthfully, I think Meggie Mac provides some badly needed comic relief, as she attempts to redefine the Republican Party, aided and abetted by the MSM.

Why would you hit abuse? Because it isn't what you want to see posted? Sheesh--I'd have to hit abuse 100 times a day if those were the rules. Does it violate FR rules to highlight the acts of an enemy of conservatism? Ms. Meghan is just another Cindy Sheehan type, with an (R) next to her name

but can this be the last thread about her?

Obviously not.
