Posted on 12/02/2010 11:30:35 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
It seems almost unfair for an intellectual lightweight like Meghan McCain to take Palin on. While I personally find the Palin-Reagan comparisons a little insulting to the Gipper, Palin is still vastly more intelligent than the majority of PDS-sufferers and is certainly smarter than Meggie-Poo. If this was a boxing match, Sarah would be Mike Tyson facing off against Meggie Mac as Screech. While McCains rambling, nonsensical columns are usually full of schadenfreude-y goodness, the columns where she attempts to attack Sarah Palin are simultaneously the most groan-worthy and the most entertaining. In her latest pathetic excuse for a column, Meggie Mac calls Palin uneducated right before she admits that she has no clue what the commonly-used term blue bloods means and had to Google it and she still got it wrong.
Meggie Mac is, like, so insulted that Palin called the Bushes blue bloods. She didnt know what the term meant (apparently she never came across it during her 100% academically-earned degree at Columbia), but since everything in the world obviously revolves around Meggie-Poo, it clearly was a personal hit on her. She was so insulted by Palins latest anti-Meggie Mac screed that she even took the time to Google the term blue bloods so she could figure out just what Palin was talking about! Now that, folks, is some good journalism.
"Welcome to the echo chamber! This weeks (or possibly months) latest rhetorical talking point is blue bloods. And guess what? In the way it has been used I am probably considered one and so is the entire Bush family, not to mention countless others. And who else would deliver such a catchy media talking point than, yes, Sarah Palin. 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 extra zinger from the notorious straight talking former first lady Barbara Bush who said she thinks Sarah Palin should stay in Alaska. Sarah Palin responded on the Laura Ingraham radio show saying of course they think that, the Bushs are blue bloods.
"I actually had to Google what the meaning of blue bloods was, although I could surmise that it was some kind of knock against education and coming from a family of some success. Yes, in essence that is what this statement meant. Families that work hard and achieve a long line of successful people are blue bloods and thus, she implied the opinions of said people are jaded and elitist, even if that family lineage has a long history of public service and leadership within Republican Party. Of course, Sarah Palin is also living the American dream, albeit a different one without the help of any kind of family lineage. She has a successful career that probably most Americans would want by earning millions for her reality show, appearances on Fox, and getting paid to go places and speak her mind. Both of these narratives exemplify why this country is still as Ronald Reagan famously put it a shining city upon a hill. America is a place where people can create their own success so their children can have more opportunities than they did. Neither the Bush familys success nor Sarah Palins are relevant to the political conversation regarding who is best suited to be the next GOP leader. Both stories are simply the American dream and taking issue with one kind of path towards success versus another is very dangerous. Lest we forget, Sarah Palin herself is now a multi-millionaire."
Horrifying grammar aside good grief, is the Daily Beast really so hard up that they cant employ the requisite team of editors desperately needed to make sense of McCains drivel-filled ramblings? all McCain did here was prove that, as usual, she has absolutely no clue what she is talking about. Daddys money that bought Meggie Mac her degree at the oh-so-reputable Columbia University clearly was worth every penny. And while Meghan McCain had absolutely nothing to do with Palin calling the Bush family blue bloods, since Meggie Mac is the center of the GOPs political universe, its obvious that Palin was really talking about the McCain family.
Interestingly enough, Sarah Palin got the term exactly right and coincidentally, it does apply to Meggie Mac as well. The term also doesnt mean what McCain thinks it does (from her expert Googling, of course). The term blue blood means a wealthy, aristocratic family. The Bushes and yes, the McCains could be considered blue bloods. People like Meggie Poo who are born with silver spoons in their mouths thanks to Mommys beer empire fortune are prime examples of brats born into blue blood families. Being called a blue blood isnt necessarily an insult, and it certainly isnt a knock against education and success. Meggie Mac, after all, would be a prime example of how being a blue blood does not equal educated and successful. Sarah Palin got a degree and worked her butt off to become the successful multi-millionaire she is today, but why let silly things like facts and common sense get in the way of jealousy-induced Palin-bashing?
McCain got into an Ivy League university based on her fathers name and her mothers bank account. She got a career as a columnist, author, and political pundit thanks to her father, too. She has no experience and no qualifications that make her deserving of such success, but thankfully for her, shes got a daddy willing to buy a career for her. It also helps that shes willing to bash Republican women, conservatism, and the GOP in general to the left-wing media whenever possible. She happily soaks up the attention and publicity, never realizing shes nothing more than a useful idiot who is playing right into the hands of lefties searching for someone to sell out the Republican Party. Whether she knows shes being used or if she is just that stupid is open to interpretation.
Laughably, in this column she whines that moderates like her are completely innocent of causing any party infighting, yet for some reason always get blamed for it. Sniffle.
"None of this is all together surprising except for the fact that historically it is the moderatesor people like yours trulywho get accused of starting party infighting and this statement from Sarah Palin showcases that on a very basic level the underlying cultural separation in this country is also happening within the Republican party itself."
Its interesting that Meggie Mac would make this claim. For all of her inexperience (has the woman ever held a single job that her daddy didnt buy for her?), she could actually be an asset to the GOP. If she put even a fraction of the energy she currently spends attacking the Republican Party towards attacking the socialist Left currently destroying our country, she could actually do some good. But no McCain would rather use her tiny pea brain to fight the party she claims to love. Were supposed to just go along with it and believe her when she says its for our own good.
It couldnt possibly have anything to do with keeping her coveted interviews and speaking gigs and guest spots on The View, could it?
Apparently, we are supposed to abandon the conservative values that the GOP is supposed to stand for in favor of things like gay marriage and amnesty. Never mind that Republicans have lazily been abandoning said conservative values for years, and doing so is exactly what opened the door to Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. If we just keep leaning
more to the left more to the center, well be popular again!
Wait, didnt we try that in 2008 with her fathers presidential run? Didnt quite work out the way Meggie Mac thought it would though, did it?
If Meghan McCain wants to help the Republican Party, she can start by going away. Not everyone loves Sarah Palin, but she brings an undeniable level of enthusiasm to the GOP that has been missing for far too long. (Heck, had it not been for Sarah Palin, McCains presidential aspirations would have failed even more miserably.) Meghan, meanwhile, contributes nothing and serves as a useful cheerleader for those who want to make Republicans look bad. Maybe Meggie Mac can take that blue blood money and see if Daddy can buy her a job writing for Playboy. Shes got the IQ for it, as well as the
other necessary assets.
Megan McCain is an Air head. Her elevator don’t go to all the floors!
Why does this vain, vacuous bubblehead get any press?
I don’t remember ever seeing a coherent thought attributed to her.
She has a degree from Columbia and she STILL didn’t know what the term “blue blood” meant...?? Good Lord...
You know she was sent to expensive prep schools and the like. Did she sleep in class? I went to some terrible schools, but I read 5-10 books a week.
Meghan seems a bit more Pink Floyd than Blue Blood ...
“I dont remember ever seeing a coherent thought attributed to her.”
Like going on The View and saying “I think we lost the youth vote [in 2008] by supporting abstinence only. I am a 24-year old, pro-sex woman.”
Michael Savage demolished her pretty good. “What do you mean a ‘24-year old pro-sex woman’? Do you know anyone that age who’s anti-sex? The reason John McCain lost was because people looked into his eyes and saw his daughter.”
Blue blood my you know what. She is nothing but an obese oinker.
Those excerpts are the first I’ve seen of Meghan’s writing.
I knew all too well she’s an airhead from hearing her talk, but I still can’t believe just how bad that text is. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that embarrassingly atrocious purposely put into print.
McCain (both father and daughter) claim to be a Republican. the father—at least at one point in the past—was quite okay in economic and defense issues. I wonder if there is a single well-known Republican position that Meghan support (beyond a vague ‘small government’ and such)?
As we used to say, “A lot of her brains ran down mommys leg.”
McCain ought to be embarrassed to take a paycheck for the nonsense she hands in.
Blue blood! More Jersey shore!
I just wish everyone would ignore McCain. She loves all of the attention, even if it’s negative.
Great article..well written. He is absolutely right..being a blue blood does not mean you are educated and successful. In fact I’d say there are more successful and educated people who have earned it themselves than there are of those who were born w/ a silver spoon. There is a big difference in being accomplished or just being a trust fund baby. She is definately the latter...rich but not accomplished.
*****While I personally find the Palin-Reagan comparisons a little insulting...*****
Take it up with Michael Reagan, son of the Gipper, who (IIRC)was the first to draw the comparison; i.e. “Dad is wearing a skirt”.
This article about McCain WOULD be an OUCH! if it wasn’t so poorly written. McCain is an abject moron to be sure, but this author has little room to complain about someone else’s writing skills.
The publication of McCain’s pontifications and her appearances on The View are events that we can easily point to as examples of the left’s desperation.
If Meghans name were Mary Jones she would be working as a waitress in some greasy spoon and trying to latch onto a truck driver for some evening workouts in the sleeper of his rig.
Meghan McCain- pig mac
