TWITTER RANT!  12:48 pm June 2, 2009

Meghan Lashes Out At Blog’s Claim That Dick Cheney Is More Important Than Her

by Jim Newell

Oh Jesus, Meghan McCain’s goin’ nuts, again, on Twitter.

BACKGROUND: the Washington Monthly‘s Steve Benen wrote this yesterday: “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.” Why that’s more or less an objectively true analysis! But it hurt Meghan’s feelings, because of sexism and racism (?), so there’s your Mini-Rant response, up top.

(Later on she Twitter-fights Kos and Glenn Greenwald.)

WTF.

Thank you, 2009, for bringing us such a reliable emergency generator of political comedy — The Washington Twitter Circuit — during this election off-year.

Twenty-seventh verse, same as the first!

Meghan McCain–aspiring to the mantle of Palin, and nearly has her French-tipped claws on it.

american mutt June 2, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Tits or stfu.

DeLand DeLakes June 2, 2009 at 12:56 pm

*Sigh.* Let’s sing this together, Meghan. *If using the possessive “your,” it’s y-o-u-r, if abbreviating “you are”, it’s y-o-u-apostrophe-r-e!*

Can’t they all just get along?

Guppy06 June 2, 2009 at 12:58 pm

How dare those sexists ignore the importance she gained through nepotism!

tootsieroll June 2, 2009 at 12:58 pm

How old is this woman? I sounded like that when I was 15.

I think Twitter’s “user agreement” statement ought to include the disclaimer:
“If you are even a remotely famous person, and or especially if you are in American politics, you better think seriously about not opening a Twitter acount.”

El Pinche June 2, 2009 at 12:59 pm

I keep thinking about guru’s winning comment about twitter and the republicans. Its so true.

Terry June 2, 2009 at 12:59 pm

Oh, bless her heart. If she didn’t have a rich momma and a famous daddy, she’d be hoping and praying to land a job down at the mall.

Noonan June 2, 2009 at 12:59 pm

She’s closely approaching the point of comedy where I don’t even wanna hate fark her any more.

ManchuCandidate June 2, 2009 at 1:00 pm

Awwww. But the truth is, you are not important. If you didn’t have a somewhat nice face and your dada wasn’t Walnuts, no one in the MSM would give a shit.

DC Hates Me June 2, 2009 at 1:00 pm

I’m hoping Twitter will kill the need for idiotic chatter online.

Come here a minute June 2, 2009 at 1:00 pm

Dear Meghan, Finish writing your Meg McCabe novel, “First Daughter, First Love”, then we’ll reevaluate whether anyone should give a fuck about anything you say. Sincerely, the internets

Rumproast June 2, 2009 at 1:01 pm

I hate Meghan McCain because every time I’m about to stop following her on Twitter (because she’s boooooorrrring), she does something like this and I hang on for a few more tortuous days reading about how elevators smell minty and how very much she hates jet lag.

lizard scum June 2, 2009 at 1:01 pm

Well, Dick Cheney, aside from being an actual figure in the party, has a gay family member, so maybe it carries more weight.

So keep talking about things you know about, Meghan, like how you’re a “pro-sex Republican.” And as you grow older you will find you have more relevant experiences to draw positions from (pro-abortion Republican?).

assistant/atlas June 2, 2009 at 1:02 pm

“if you are even a remotely famous person, and or especially if you are in American politics, you better think seriously about not opening a Twitter account.” …. what the hell would the point of Twitter be then, if not to see how the olds and the unhip struggle with the internets.

Country Club Jihadi June 2, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I guess Meghan can’t spell when she has her period.

WhatTheHeck June 2, 2009 at 1:03 pm

A mini-rant. That’s so tweet.

tunamelt June 2, 2009 at 1:03 pm

This does not alter the fact that Dick Cheney is still an unrepentant asshole.

BklynIlluminati June 2, 2009 at 1:04 pm

She needs an alcoholics moment of clarity. Wait those guys on the left are already doing what i have been twatting about all along , Daddy’s friends are all fraudclowns its all so clear to me now

SayItWithWookies June 2, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Lordy — Dick’s just splitting the difference — saying gay marriage is okay while modestly resigning its fate to the same oubliette earlier reserved for such touchy issues as poll taxes and such.

Also, Meghan — come out of the closet already. It’s not like the hardcore righties will despise you any more than they already do.

“I guess Meghan can’t spell when she has her period.”

Let me run that through the Obama Overt Sexism Cloaking Device:

“I guess periodically Meghan can’t spell.”

Fixed.

Larry McAwful June 2, 2009 at 1:07 pm

The last time I was unemployed, I didn’t have net access. The time before that I was unemployed, there was no Twitter. So who am I to judge? But I can say this: you say and think crazy things when you don’t have a job, so I feel Meghan’s McPain.

NoWireHangers June 2, 2009 at 1:07 pm

Oh Meghan. You’re so precious! The only reason anyone gives a fuck about you is because you’re WALNUTS! daughter. And we don’t even care that much. You’re no great political mind, or even a great mind in any capacity. You’re just WALNUTS! daughter. That’s it. You also type and I guess you want us to care, but we don’t. It’s cute that you don’t understand this, though. Maybe you should just get a real job that you’re qualified for without the help of your family name or your daddy? Maybe something in retail? Not even the Bush twins demanded as much attention as you’re demanding, and when they wanted attention they just got drunk like the spoiled brats they are, because they knew their place. Think about it. Ask your mother. She knows.

Get it? I retweeted your post.

Zadig June 2, 2009 at 1:10 pm

Oh Meghan, you really do have it rough when I care less about you than crochety gay-appeasing ex-Palpatine impersonator Dick Cheney. But then, even HE had to talk someone into letting him ride their coat-tails into office.

thejesusandmarycheney June 2, 2009 at 1:12 pm

[re=329869]lizard scum[/re]:”Well, Dick Cheney, aside from being an actual figure in the party, has a gay family member, so maybe it carries more weight.” So does Meghan. Those nights in Hanoi were long and hot, but never lonely.

Come here a minute June 2, 2009 at 1:13 pm

She’s right about one thing:

I guarantee you if one of my brothers were doing what I am doing right now the Washington Monthly would think it had meaning.

If John Sidney IV said this, it would be news. He just graduated from Annapolis. WTF has Meg done?

Crosseyed and Painless June 2, 2009 at 1:19 pm

I just got a twitter account. Is it as obnoxious as it seems? Do people really need to tweet 30 times an hour? Is there anything more sad than a twitter-fight? Are these stupid questions? Am I beating a dead horse?

Hooray For Anything June 2, 2009 at 1:30 pm

This should be fairly easy to explain- it’s no big deal when a twit twits and it’s no big deal when a dick acts like a dick but it is a big deal when the dick does something for which they are not being dickish.

BlueStateLibtard June 2, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Yes, Megan has so many important “credentials,” like uh, how about flower-delivering and charging things on Mommy’s Amex? She’s certainly paid her dues, and with her vast knowledge and experience, should be able to decide all of our vexing social problems for us.

Cicada June 2, 2009 at 1:39 pm

OMG GUYS, MEGHAN IS TO IMPORTANT. SHE TOTALLY LOVES THE GHEYZ. I CANT BELIEVE YOUR ALL SO MEAN! I AM SO OUT OF HERE WHEN I TURN 18.

imissopus June 2, 2009 at 1:39 pm

For fuck’s sake Megs, you Republicans always think you are so put-upon, whether it is white males ranting about reverse racism or you claiming sexism because someone found Dick Cheney’s position on gay marriage more interesting than yours. Now stfu, waddle your fat ass back out to the kitchen, and make me a sandwich.

Come here a minute June 2, 2009 at 1:44 pm

“I guarantee you if one of my brothers were doing what I am doing right now the Washington Monthly would think it had meaning.”

Is she somehow implying she’s having sex right now? With a man, that is.

Sorry Meghan, twatting the same thing four times doesn’t meet your quota for contractually-obliged tweets.

(Also, jesus, you attention whore — fishing for replies much?)

inedalo June 2, 2009 at 1:54 pm

she needs to go back to grammar class; obviously doesn’t know the diff. between
“your” and “you’re”.

another product of the lousy amer. educational system.

but i guess that makes her equal to Palin.

19kevin8 June 2, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I’d still hit it.

Gallowglass June 2, 2009 at 1:58 pm

Oh Megs. Those Republicans are so sexist and mean. They don’t understand what a precious and unique princess snowflake pony you really are. Please, let me take you away from all this. We’ll go down to city hall and change your political party affiliation, make sweet, sweet love, then I’ll buy you a tuna melt and we’ll talk about your feelings and Important Political Ideas.

psssst – Cheney IS more important than you, fucktard.

[re=329891]Come here a minute[/re]:

Oh, Christ, EXACTLY, thank you.

Megan, whether or not you are a man or a woman, it helps to have ACTUALLY FUCKING DONE SOMETHING OTHER THAN RIDE AROUND ON VARIOUS COATTAILS if you want people to care what you have to say. Additionally, the general form of address to the public is the essay, the article, or the book, not the twitter feed. The twitter feed is for bragging about how wasted you are or for oblique references to illegal drugs.

GAH SHE MAKES ME STABBY!!!!!111!!!

Oh, look, Steve Benen has now apologized to Meghan. So no, she’s not as important as Dick Cheney – she’s as important as Rush Limbaugh!!

chascates June 2, 2009 at 3:04 pm

Take it easy, Meghan. In 10 years you’re going to be on the cover of People magazine with the headline “How I lost 63 Pounds!” and you don’t want to spoil your brand by aiming too high.

Try finding a nice charity you can whore.

[re=330031]Mahousu[/re]: Benen’s reply came off as him very politely telling Megs to find an enormous bag of dicks and eat them. And lay off the extra butter.

Okay, he didn’t imply that last part, I just can’t seem to get enough of Meghan McCain weight jokes today.
