Meghan McCain’s YouTube Videos Are Boring

Oh rats, we discovered unemployed blogger Meghan McCain’s YouTube channel and were all set to post “A Children’s Treasury of Comical Meghan McCain YouTube Videos,” but they are all SO BORING. Half of them are about visiting deformed people in third-world countries. Who cares about those people! (At least they have excuses for being unemployed, btw.) Here’s the only decent one, and it’s five months old. It documents the famous Sedona barbecue the McCains held for their journalist friends back in March.

Probably the best image in this video is that of the hammered journalist goin’ nuts on the tire swing, but not so nuts that she’d spill any precious champagne from her glass.


  • Meghan: “It was just really funny to see sort of like the juxtaposition of the D.C. reporters at my cabin in Sedona.”
  • Meghan: “Having the press corps meet longtime friends like Fred… who also helps cook whenever we have big events at our cabin or our house but he’s like a therapist to me sometimes as well.”
  • Cindy, drunk and slurring: “This is muuuuch better than Washington D.C., isn’t it. I think.”
  • HA HA, Meghan says “the guys from the Politico” brought Cindy flowers. Those Politico boys, such Casanovas! It was probably Jonathan Martin, who, according to Meghan, was also helping John McCain grill his ribs. Is Jonathan Martin having a sex affair with Cindy McCain? Because that would be soooo… journalistically unethical. Really unprofessional.
  • Meghan: “I think if there is one common denominator of all women it’s that they love road trips.”
  • After the barbecue they stopped at Taco Bell. Or maybe it was before the barbecue. The first scenario is funnier though, because there was just like so much food at that barbecue ya know.

    I can only summon so much hatred for a gal who’s only voting Republican because her mom threatened to disown her if she voted for Obama.

    [re=65353]Serolf Divad[/re]: No one hates Meghan. She is hilarious. And also evil because she’s writing a propaganda children’s book. But eh.

  3. Gopherit v2.0

    Who knew reporters could be bought so cheap? I know you can throw a case of beer at a blogger and be BFFs, but reporters are more like two or three diamond whores, right?

  4. AnnieGetYourFun

    That is some ROCKIN’ music in the beginning there.

    Also, um… is there anything sort of WRONG with the press getting free ribs at the McCain’s “cabin”? I mean, sorry, I’m outside the loop, but often do journalists do this stuff?

  5. greatgooglymoogly

    Completely off topic: I just read (probably old, old news to the rest of you) that McCain’s full name is John Sidney McCain III. Huh … John Sidney McCain III. If you repeat it over and over again, it sounds like the name of an old, rich, out of touch, irascible, full-of-shit blowhard. John Sidney McCain III. Can a bitter vote for John Sidney McCain III?

  6. VomitComit

    oooh ‘juxtaposition’ nice diction! oh wait, just because you throw a polysyllabic word in now and then doesn’t mean you know how to use it. i hate the stupid not the gal.

  7. NotNotLickingToads

    [re=65370]spencer[/re]: Too busy having meetings with Heidi Montag, at which they discuss the applicability of Keynesian economic theory in modern governance.

  8. pdiddycornchips

    I can’t watch this from my office computer ’cause they block youtube. Does she flash a nipple or discuss an upcoming sex tape with Monica Crowley? If not, I agree. Boring…

  9. Dave J.

    I’d call the DC press establishment “whores,” except whores accept money for their services. These guys can be bought for a few ribs and a cheap beer given to them by a drunken 98 year old.

  10. ManchuCandidate

    [re=65361]Gopherit v2.0[/re]:
    Naw, Crackwhores.

    That’s not an eelightist home. Not one bit.

  11. Gopherit v2.0

    HOw could you not like the Sturgis Video where Meghan longs for he free and easy life of a scooter bitch, and not the tough day-to-day slog of being kept by her parents?

  12. Noodle Salad

    cab·in (kbn) 1. A small, roughly built house; a cottage.

    That is not a cabin. That’s a mansion made of wood.

  13. mookworthjwilson

    Man, tubby sure likes to spackle on the eye makeup don’t she…wonder how many times Daddy has told her that…

  14. Gopherit v2.0

    [re=65379]Dave J.[/re]: Yeah, you like the product placement? At a McCain party, we have Bud AND Bud Light.

  15. The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    I think Meghan is much too ambitious with all these books and blogging projects. She should follow in her mother’s footsteps and just be a rich, pampered Republican substance abuser.

  16. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=65353]Serolf Divad[/re]: Ah yes. And remember who went with her to register Republican?

    Cindy the beer heiress. Classic awesome.

  17. sezme

    Megan blogs and makes videos in the same sense that Daddy “Grills his famous ribs” and “writes books”. Also, she needs to ease up on the cocaine.

  18. The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    The last time I saw that shade of lipstick, it was behind the counter at Dairy Queen.

  19. TGY

    Bring back the Paultard chick videos. I kinda liked her and at least she seemed to be fun in a crazy, trashy way.

  20. NotNotLickingToads

    Jesus that place is nice with the river and all that. Le sigh. Also, Meghan is the embodiment of the strong, intelligent young woman profile that the Republicans hold in such high regard.

  21. itgetter

    She’s a socially liberal quasi-republican who has never voted for Bush. Basically she’s my freshman roommate- besides the stupid, there’s not much to hate.

  22. spencer

    He served cous-cous? How is that less elitist than arugula? Second off, she is driving a Prius.

  23. Maus


    They don’t call them the barbeque media for nothing. They just loooooooooooove parties and the repubs tell jokes about ape-rape rather than those dull dems who want to talk about policy and the needy and blah blah not enough booze blah blah children in Darfur.

    Who wants genocide with their cole slaw and champy? That’s just a recipe for indigestion.

  24. Rodney Badger

    [re=65422]Maus[/re]: Earlier on in life, Democratic parties are much more fun and boozy. At some point though, the republican parties tend to pull ahead on the fun and boozy scale. Not unlike presidential elections.

  25. trophy(forparticipation)wife

    Who has she dated? There are so many signs. She is down with the brown. I love it!

  26. CrunchyKnee

    [re=65364]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: I wonder if she’s using copyrighted material without the consent of the copyright holder? Maybe she’ll get a take down notice from the RIAA?

  27. bunnyhead

    [re=65370]spencer[/re]: or at least emptying bed pans at Walter Reed, ya know, to support the troops.

  28. bunnyhead

    Meghan McCain is a much better example of the idle rich/vacuous youth than either Paris Hilton or Brittany Spears. Meghan illustrates a good reason to bring back the draft too, ya know, to serve a cause higher than oneself…

  29. Gopherit v2.0

    [re=65488]Serolf Divad[/re]: Sidney Portier isn’t too old to beat you into the Stone Age for that, Serolf.

  30. Banzai77

    Nothing says “journalistic integrity” like sending flowers to your subjects and eating & drinking at their mega-log-mansion.

  31. Canuckledragger

    [re=65396]rmontcal[/re]: [re=65403]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]:

    The white lipstick thing is easily explained. Every time Meg’s about to get down to business with a new black “boyfriend,” she colours his unit white.

    That way she can keep telling her dad that she’s never “been with” a black guy.

    Now, as to why Meg’s lipstick is always white… well, just sayin’….

  32. Volumptuous

    [re=65433]trophy(forparticipation)wife[/re]: Her and Edwards have been having secks for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS!

  33. JeffGoldblum

    I had to watch that without sound on account of being at work, but I’d recognize that scene anywhere. A good old fashion Post Fag-Drag Grillfest.

  35. jasonelias

    It’s kind of sad when some Repubs try to approximate normal behavior. They make it look so arduous.

  36. denver_80203

    Favorite part”

    The part where she’s talking about food, mentions fried chicken and they cut to a zoom-in shot of the one black dude eating chicken

  37. Larry McAwful

    If you’re going to use your public figure parent as a springboard into public life for yourself, you should at least have the decency to try to match that parent in their chosen field. If your dad’s a U.S. senator, you should have something political to say, or you should shut the hell up and try to get famous on your own.

    I’ve seen more boring videos on YouTube than this one. Not many, but some. Oh, and here’s a tip: if you’re going to talk about your mom’s “silly side,” try showing her being silly, and not that dud of a clip of her that you used. Of course, if that’s your mom at her silliest, then you need to work with what you’ve got, and avoid mentioning a “silly side” at all. I mean, Christ…

  38. Upthruster

    Not quite American enough…Could you have a few more pictures of meat please? Not nearly enough of people eating meat, cooking meat and drinking beer. Nice try though and I’m still freaked out by your book, but have hope Meghan, even Jenna Bush got a husband in the end.

  39. eyesfriedopen

    [re=65869]Upthruster[/re]: “…even Jenna Bush got a husband in the end.”

    Isn’t that the best place to get a husband?

    Also, does Meggs talk that much in real life? If so, there’s something else to hate besides the stupid.

    And stopping at Taco Bell was the highlight of the road trip? That’s more elitist than couscous. Were there no McDonald’s on the way? Or is she still boycotting them?

  40. Monk4135

    “Everyone knows a woman’s favorite thing is a roadtrip”…that seems to be a bit of a sweeping generalization Meghan…what about the blind women, and the ones who get motion sickness…

  41. thefrontpage


    If you are not a good actor, if you are not a good filmmaker, if you have an irritating voice, if you know nothing about government and politics, then PLEASE—do not act, do not make videoes, do not talk in your videos, and do not participate in government and politics.

    This is just absolutely terrible, through and through.
