    A new bike-share program in New York looks like a promising way to fix some of the city's biggest problems, like traffic congestion, air pollution, and obesity. Or rather, let us rephrase: It will help to relieve issues of obesity, but only for the portion of the population weighing less than 260 pounds. ‚ÄúEveryone who signs up for the program has to agree to a contract, which states users ‚Äėmust not exceed maximum weight limit (260 pounds)‚Äô because the bikes can‚Äôt hold that much heft,‚ÄĚ explains the New York Post. But citizens aren‚Äôt buying it. Jhoskaira Ferman, a 20-year-old student...
  • Ignore Lena Dunham's 'Girls' at Your Own Peril, Conservatives

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | January 29, 2013 | Kurt Schlichter
    Thereís plenty about Girls to annoy conservatives, yet this often creepy, usually skeevy, critically-acclaimed HBO series is also a test for conservatives. Will we finally heed Andrew Breitbart's warnings about the importance of taking pop culture seriously or just keep fiddling as the culture burns? If conservatives are going to be in the popular culture Ė and act to change it Ė they canít simply ignore shows like Girls that capture the zeitgeist, even if the zeitgeist makes their skin crawl. Season two is well under way, and conservatives need to participate in the discussion. Girls is about four young,...

    Today is the day of the Florida primary, and it will most likely be the day that Mitt Romney clinches the 2012 Republican nomination for president. I admit that I have a terrible track record of predicting the outcome of elections, but I think itís pretty safe to say Romney is going to win Florida. The most recent Rasmussen poll has him leading Gingrich by 16 points. The right wing of the party might have fought tooth and nail against Romney, but after a long and arduous primary process, he has now proven that he is in fact the strongest...

    The Daily Beast columnist Meghan McCain was on 'The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell' (Wed., 8PM on MSNBC), where she and the host responded to GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's response to the State of the Union address. MSNBC did not air the response, but CNN did, which McCain thinks they "should be ashamed of." Lawrence called Bachmann's statements the "second response to the State of the Union Address," because the designated Republican response had already been given. He agreed with McCain "about how there were these different people who are just using their platforms to their own personal advantage, rather...

    Meghan McCain: Sarah Palin must be anti-education because she uses common phrases I don't understand Ace of Spades flags this revealing passage in Meghan McCain's latest column which is -- surprise! -- another attack on Sarah Palin. Anyway, remember how Sarah Palin called the Bush family "blue bloods" after they tacitly endorsed Romney? Well, here's what Meghan McCain had to say about that: The reference to "blue bloods" was made after former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara said in an interview that they thought Mitt Romney was essentially the man to watch in 2012, followed by an...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator John McCain's daughter said on Sunday that Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware, a Tea Party favorite, is "seen as a nut job." "Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," Meghan McCain said of her father's fellow Republican, who recently ran an ad declaring, "I'm not a witch." Appearing on ABC's "This Week," McCain said O'Donnell "has no real history, no real success in any kind of business." "And what that sends to my generation is (the message that) one day, you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter...

    When Meghan McCain tweeted the link to her newest Daily Beast "article" on Twitter Tuesday night, my first thought was "How the hell did I get unblocked by her? Why am I seeing this tweet?" This was disconcerting to say the least. I was afraid that I may have failed to pay my Vast Right Wing Conspiracy dues or that the H8R-Ade I had been drinking had expired and lost its strength. My second thought, upon reading the title, My Palin Problem, was "Oh, dear. This is going to be hilarious." I was right. The very first paragraph alone divulges...

As my book tour for Dirty Sexy Politics comes to an end, there are a few things that have surprised me about its publication.

What I didnít expect, however, was that instead of the media concentrating on my admission of almost...

    Meghan McCain apparently thinks there will be a "bloodletting" in the GOP in the next election, because the party has no room for controversial socially liberal figures like her.

Meghan McCain (yes, daughter of Arizona Senator John McCain) joined Stewart last night to chat about her book, "Dirty Sexy Politics," and the conversation soon veered into Palin territory. The book, Stewart pointed out, "is a view of the campaign trail thatís very personal" - almost like he was reading someone's diary, he said. ďI basically wrote a very real book," McCain explained. "Itís very sad and I talk about everything Ė I talk about sex and politics and everything in between and...

    WASHINGTON -- On the day her father won the New Hampshire primary in 2008, Meghan McCain feared she would be arrested for removing Mitt Romney campaign signs from a Nashua street corner. "Stealing campaign signs is technically illegal, but I never thought anyone would enforce this. Nor did I expect we'd get caught," McCain confesses in her memoir, "Dirty Sexy Politics," which is released today. McCain writes that she "had gotten pretty sick" of seeing Romney's signs, particularly a cluster she and friends suspected had been strategically placed outside the McCain campaign's hotel. After stashing several of them in a...

At turns funny, foul-mouthed, and even trivial, Meghan McCain is being herself. Her blog at The Daily Beast covers a different, but similarly broad, spectrum.

    A majority of Japanese sumo fans support a tradition which bans women from stepping on the raised dirt wrestling mound, according to a survey released by the Japan Sumo Association on Wednesday. The association conducted the survey, distributing 350 questionnaires at Tokyo's Ryogoku Kokugikan on Sept. 12 for a response rate of 51 percent, Kyodo News Agency said. Fifty-four percent said the ban should be maintained, and 46 percent said the prohibition should be scrapped. A similar survey in 2004 also showed a majority opposed to lifting the ban. JSA officials were not immediately available for comment. The 2,000-year-old national...
