Meghan McCain Quotes of the Week: Bras, Bugs, & Beta Males

Unfortunately, Meghan McCain’s boobs can’t really talk, but thankfully, Meg’s Twitter feed is such a treasure trove of good quotes, they really don’t have to.  Politico even put one of Meghan’s tweets in its “Politi-quotes: The week in one-liners,” but I think she deserves a whole list to herself.

First, there was Politico’s pick, Meg’s tweet about killing a cockroach in her sink.  Funnier than that, though, were her followups.  Apparently, this one spurred a flurry of cockroach fun facts:

WHAT? @HeyDaveJ Tip: Put a paper towel over the cockroach before you kill it. They carry eggs on their back, and that way they don’t spread. 9:58 AM Jun 27th from web

stop tweeting me about roach eggs people! good lord, I just killed one! 10:18 AM Jun 27th from web

I have to give Meg some props here.  Even though she said “Ewww!”, she did kill the roach herself.  Several years ago, I had a girlfriend who made me drive 2 hours to the City so I could kill a roach that she had trapped under a glass.  To be fair, the thing was the size of a Rottweiler puppy, but it was also missing a bunch of legs.

Now, killing is second nature to Meghan, putting her even more squarely in the “Cool Chick” category, the kind of girl that every guy wants to have a beer with, then have breakfast with.

My favorite Meg quote (aside from her perceptive take on our Meg story) was this 2-Tweet decimation of her conservative critics:

I love people that tell me “I’m doing damage to the GOP”, yeah cause Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Sen. Ensign, Gov Sanford and the entire Bush administration have nothing to do with the GOP’s problems, no…it’s my 5″1 ass in a pushup bra thats the real problem with the GOP… about 19 hours ago from web

She’s right, of course.  The problem isn’t her ass, but the GOP’s habit of telling people what to do with their own asses, while stealth-hunting extracurricular booty.

Finally, she launches a funny one-liner at Hot Air blogger Allahpundit, who self-deprecatingly refers to himself as a “beta male”:

@allahpundit I don’t like beta males darlin’, I am a lot of a lot to date and guys gotta be able to handle it! 12:41 AM Jun 27th from web in reply to allahpundit

At least now, he’ll know who to call if he needs some exterminating done for him.

Other highlights this week include her run-in with an unhinged taxi driver, smackdown of a jerky Twitter troll, and coinage of a great Battlestar Galactica-related catch phrase.  What I’m saying is, you’re missing out on a full life if you don’t follow Meg’s Twitter feed.


Daily Kos Founder Twitter-Feuds with Meghan McCain Over Gay Marriage

This kind of thing really makes me mad.  I’m going to try to be chill, but there might be profanity below the fold.

Meghan McCain was tweeting about a Washington Monthly article that named her as a “meaningless” advocate of gay marriage:

It was pretty meaningless to hear Meghan McCain urge her Republican Party to come around on gay marriage. It seemed a bit more important when Steve Schmidt, John McCain’s campaign manager, gave the GOP the same advice.

But in terms of influence in Republican politics, Dick Cheney is on another level.

While their point is that Cheney carries more political weight, their swipe at Meg was gratuitous and inaccurate.  Meg has done more than most to publicize marriage equality, and not in the ugly, Perez Hilton way.  To call her meaningless, or all of the other non-Dick people who work hard to achieve equality for everyone, is just wrong.

So, when Meg pointed this out on her Twitter feed, here’s the response she got from Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas:


Before I comment further, and before I get to Meghan McCain’s statement on this feud, let me lay out the rest of the Twitter conversation for you, in chronological order: Continue reading

Meghan McCain Proud of Her Big, Juicy Ass

I could not be prouder of Meghan McCain for striking yet another blow for mothers, sisters, and daughters everywhere.  I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: Meghan McCain is awesome.

One of Meg’s tweets caught my eye today, a defiant doubling-down of her previous declaration on The View:

Meghan McCain’s New Twitter Creep NRO Bashes Her For Liking Eminem

Meghan McCain wrote yesterday at The Daily Beast about “Twitter Creeps” like Karl Rove and media outlets that disseeminemct her Tweets (except me).  Now, Meg can add a new one to the pile, as The National Review makes a BFD out of Meg’s pro-Eminem tweet:

Okay, I had wanted to stay away from further focus on the Twitter exploits of Meghan McCain, the daughter of the 2008 presidential candidate. But sometimes you just can’t tear your eyes away.

The latest Tweet from McCain: “I used to have the hugest crush on Eminem when I was in high school and he still looks hot in his new music video!!”

This would be, presumably, the music video in which Eminem depicts himself having sex with Sarah Palin..

…Good to know she thinks Eminem still looks “hot” while pretending to have sex with dad’s running mate.

Where do I start with this one?  Well, I’m going to assume you’ve already read why I think the right is going about Meghan McCain all wrong, and point out that  this is exhibit Q.  They dissect Meg’s Tweets as though she’s a political opponent.  She’s not.  Her value is as an observer.  Noting that she has apolitical interests doesn’t diminish her insights, it enhances them.

But the biggest load of irony here is that NRO seems to look down on Eminem’s Palin fantasies, when they are famous for their own Rich Lowry’s near-monkey-corporal-punishing review of Palin’s Vice Presidential Debate performance.  I don’t usually go for the hypocrisy argument, but the symmetry here is too perfect.

National Review can’t keep their eyes off of Meg’s Tweets because she thinks a guy who fantasizes about Sarah Palin is hot.  Just not their guy who fantasizes about Palin.
