Meghan McCain Grills Mother Cindy In Stunning Interview

by Jim Newell

Before Christopher Hitchens entered the roomLike many unemployed Americans, “first daughter” Meghan McCain now blogs for The Daily Beast. Tapping deep into her journalistic Rolodex of sources, she was able to score an interview with John McCain’s second and current wife, Cindy! Meghan uses the opportunity to ask such pressing questions as, “The one thing I always wished was that people would have gotten to see your sense of humor in different situations. Why do you think that never was able to happen?” Ha ha THE INTERNET.

Oh let’s see what the answer to this question is: “Are there any outfits you wish you wouldn’t have worn on the trail?” Nevermind, no, let’s not… Ah, here’s a sweet mother-daughter moment:

Did I ever embarrass you?

No, you did not. I was, and am, still very proud of you.

Come on, I know you were less than thrilled with the profile of me in GQ!

You didn’t embarrass me with the GQ article but it was a good lesson for you to learn, and I could have strangled that reporter but I had to let you learn that lesson. I did cringe sometimes when reporters abused your friendship with them. You were genuinely friendly and respectful of them and I was worried they were using you.

Aww, she’s protective of her adult daughter who constantly tells things on-the-record to those mean national magazine reporters who are doing their jobs.

The insularity of this conversation spirals at such a pace that by page three, we’re reading what we expected: two plutocrats whining about the poors.

What was the worst hotel you ever stayed in?

Ohh my, thats a really tough one. That one in Iowa that had the bathtub in the middle of the room was pretty bad, I have forgotten the name.

Oh yes, that flyover state rubble castle. We know the one. They even let Negroes occupy rooms on the White floors. HARUMPH to this terrible fake world.

Too many clothes, Megan. That pose practically cries out for a sheer negligee, thigh highs, and dark red lipstick. And nothing else.

Servo January 19, 2009 at 3:58 pm

Christ! They’re like tenacious herpes.

Terry January 19, 2009 at 4:01 pm

I’m off to interview my mother and see if The Daily Beast will publish it. It will be a stunning examination of the life of a senior citizen in the suburbs of DC. I may get a book out of it.

Min January 19, 2009 at 4:03 pm

It’s good that they can talk to each other. Because nobody else wants to talk to either of them.

Styrofoam Boots January 19, 2009 at 4:04 pm

Did she cover how she got the Herp in Cancun?!

teebob2000 January 19, 2009 at 4:04 pm

The Cuntette. Also.

frieswidat January 19, 2009 at 4:06 pm

May I suggest a followup question using a worn-out pun involving disposable undergarments? Thanks.

Meghan: What’s the biggest obstacle to intimacy with Dad?

You’ve been very kind.

Chad San Marino January 19, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Ah, rich white people. Is there nothing you can do that isn’t endlessly fascinating? To yourselves, I mean. Nobody else fucking gives a shit.

NoWireHangers January 19, 2009 at 4:15 pm

Ahhhh, that alt text!! Newell, you devil!

Clancy_Pants January 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

Mrs. McCain.. May I call you Mommie?

NoWireHangers January 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

I hate it when family members interview each other because the interviews always devolve into “I love you so much and I’m so proud of you” wank fests.

ManchuCandidate January 19, 2009 at 4:20 pm

Meghan, you could have asked why mommy makes out with guys at Eagle Concerts.

PopeyesPipe January 19, 2009 at 4:25 pm

This is like a navel gazing into its own navel’s navel.

V572625694 January 19, 2009 at 4:31 pm

This “Daily Beast” thing of which you speak — is it one of those Web Log whoozits? Or is it more of a content aggregator like, uh, Fox News? An association w/Tina Brown is enough to make anything hateful, and this solipsistic horseshit just validates that standard.

Bruno January 19, 2009 at 4:32 pm

[re=222230]NoWireHangers[/re]: Unfortunately that only happens on Leave it to Beaver families. Real ‘Murikun families just bake meth together – no talking

“I could have strangled that reporter but I had to let you learn that lesson.”

translation: I could have strangled that reporter, or perhaps flayed him alive, but I didn’t. Not yet.

hobospacejungle January 19, 2009 at 4:47 pm

Meghan: Why does daddy always watch from the closet when we fingerbang each other?

Cindy: I was, and am, still very proud of you.

shortsshortsshorts January 19, 2009 at 5:00 pm

[re=222246]V572625694[/re]: The Daily Beast is a failure and will be gone in 6 months. So there you have it. “Famous People” keep writing for it though. I don’t get it.

Suds McKenzie January 19, 2009 at 5:01 pm

When did things get so “saucy” on the internets? Mother AND Daughter, .. my stars.

snideinplainsight January 19, 2009 at 5:03 pm

I don’t know, is it me, or does that picture seem a little contrived?

I mean thet one with Christopher Hitchens and his cucumber scrub.

Maus January 19, 2009 at 5:07 pm

It’s the Huffington post meets the Globe with a bit more PUMApandering and GOP-lite concern trolling.

It’s poorly written content but still somehow written above the heads of their fucktarded audience of supermarket tabloid readers, so I agree that it’ll be gone shortly.

[re=222288]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Has anyone covered the Beast’s flopping around, or is this just a guesstimation of failure?

Hart88 January 19, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Undoubtedly the best pic ever taken of Meghan.

President Beeblebrox January 19, 2009 at 5:15 pm

Hm. Meghan, according to the Men.Style.Com interview, digs Deeta von Teese. Ergo, Meghan is into burlesque and possibly BDSM and fetish.

V572625694 January 19, 2009 at 5:22 pm

[re=222288]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: The same formula seems to be allowing “Huffington Post” to survive, though…Odd, isn’t it?

kinky-neo-con January 19, 2009 at 5:26 pm

everytime I see Meghan I get in the mood for blonde porn; you know the cheap, slutty, drunk co-ed type…

DustBowlBlues January 19, 2009 at 5:35 pm

Why did mommie’s sense of humor never show? Perhaps because she’s a mean-spirited white hag who’s spent her entire life living luxuriously off money she didn’t do a damn thing to earn.

Boo, hoo, hoo. Cindy’s husband–who hasn’t lived in the same house with her in years–lost.

Wonder if Mom and tot are watching a single moment of the Democratic presidential celebratefest.

Yay! We’re all so fucking happy you people aren’t moving into the White House. Though the color would match that hideously overbleached, lifeless hair of hers.

Everett_dIRKSEN January 19, 2009 at 5:53 pm

I thought she was very funny.

A lot of the things she said made me laugh.

TeddyS January 19, 2009 at 6:09 pm

Q: Mom, why did Daddy call you a c*nt in public?
A: You fucking liberal media reporter! Get out of which ever of my houses you’re living in!

imissopus January 19, 2009 at 6:13 pm

“Mrs. McCain, now that the election is over, will Dad’s Negro child we pretended to have adopted return to the servants’ quarters so I can have my room back?”

The coolest thing I remember was using Interstate-10, I-40, I-17, 1-8, I-19, I-15, the Loop 101, the Loop 202, the Loop 303, and the 51 Expressway to take off and land my family’s private jet on.

We all did.

It was wonderful.

Ahh, the days before the Island of Lesbo Demmy became Gov., and now that she is supposed to go help Hopey, life will return to AZ-normal. Sunscreen, botox, and corruption.

scaredof January 19, 2009 at 7:38 pm

Is that a McCain? Without SHOES!?

Boondock Saint January 19, 2009 at 8:06 pm

I loves me a girlie with a belly! mmmmmmmm

mcfrady January 19, 2009 at 8:13 pm

Ruby red lipstick, and nothing else!

Bearbloke January 20, 2009 at 1:35 am

[re=222338]TeddyS[/re]: Win.

Of course, if little Meghan McWarbucks had a true reporter’s instinct she would’ve scored a ‘tell-all’ interview with Daddy’s third and future ex-wife Sarah P…… if only to get valuable pointers for breaking into the Porn Industry by hosting the Official Inaugural All-day Free Exhibition of “Nailin’ Paylin” in the District’s finer ‘raincoat’ theaters.

fjelsted January 20, 2009 at 3:50 am

I keep hearing a wilson phillips song. no lyrics really, just the burbling and garbles over sissy-fied notes.

Doktor Avalanche January 20, 2009 at 8:04 am

Why is it that conservative bat-shit always has beautiful spawn?

sezme January 20, 2009 at 10:43 am

Fine ‘before’ photo. Where’s the photo from after Hitchens left the room?

Joey Ratz January 20, 2009 at 1:39 pm

Dang. That GQ profile she refers to is a veritable treasure trove. Apparently she likes Tila Tequila and “bad boys with tattoos”. Still, my favourite part is:

“We’ve got Brimley!” The phrase, she says, became a rallying cry for the campaign.

Wilford Brimley? The guy from Cocoon? If that’s your big endorsement, well…

medici January 20, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Such groundbreaking journalism!!!!
