Do Not Miss The Teevee Spinoff Of Meghan McCain’s Twitter

America’s #1 internationally famous web-only human being Meg McCabe will be hosting The View today, widely considered to be the Oscars and Grammys combined of February 4th. Anyone remember if this show is live? Anyone think Googling would be “worth it”? [Twitter]

    Will she be reviewing that Andy Warhol book? I might tune in for that.

    [re=507498]TGY[/re]: That’s what I saw too; today we are all dyslexic

  2. Mr Blifil

    Hey, I remember “back in the day” somebody who had so much soul, he voted against the MLK Day holiday and the 1990 Civil Rights act. GO ON GIRL WITH YOUR BAD SELF.

  3. bfstevie

    Hokey smokes! Whoopi just was completely accurate about Walnuts’ dodgy, flip-floppy history on the gehz in the military. Apparently she has no desire to be on cable television news. Where do they come off giving us actual facts? Somewhere Roger Ailes is weeping in a corner.

    Later today Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta will do cleft palate surgery on a Haitian child trapped under a pile of rubble, and then all will be well with the world again.

  4. SayItWithWookies

    I’d love to hear Meghan discuss the issues of the day in the overly general terms used by people who don’t have a real grasp of what they’re talking about. There just aren’t enough semi-informed people who feel free to express their opinions anymore.

  5. ForTheTurnstiles

    For all that, Meg McCabe is my favorite contemporary Republican (where “favorite” means “least contemptible”). She’s surely the most honest of the bunch.

  6. chaste everywhere

    [re=507517]magic titty[/re]: Are they THAT big? (Or are those your/my/anyone’s eyes on viewing them for the first time?)

  7. x111e7thst

    [re=507530]JMP[/re]: If Obama was really serious about restoring bi-partisanship and civility to public discourse he would definitely urge her to do this thing.

  8. JMP

    [re=507525]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: And I’m sure she got in purely based on her own intellect, just like how Bush got into Yale and Harvard B-school.

  9. ForTheTurnstiles

    [re=507549]JMP[/re]: And you know who else graduated from Columbia and suffers from serious daddy issues…

    My broader and snarkless point put more directly: would you rather endure an hour trapped in an elevator with Meghan McCain or with, well, any other nationally-recognizable Republican? If you’re a straight guy, disregard the boobies for the purposes of this thought experiment.

  10. Buttery1000

    What can Meghan do now to compete with Scott Brown’s daughters? Maybe detail her sex life (or lack thereof) or make up an eating disorder.

  11. Gorillionaire

    [re=507562]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Meg would just spend the entire time tweeting about her experience on the elevator.

  12. Terry


    “Wife: SC gov didn’t want fidelity in marriage vows

    That’s like Ricky Gervais-level douchebaggery.”

    You know, that should have been a clue. A big frickin clue.

  13. lawrenceofthedesert

    [re=507552]Gorillionaire[/re]: Sarah was on Letterman last night; she’s out pushing her series and no doubt hitting all the shows. Dressed up for Dave, but looked like a caged animal in the chair, she was so constrained by the setting. I didn’t get the feeling they were mutual fans. As for not being able to see daytime t.v. because of work: it’s a blessing, not a curse.

  14. BeWoot

    [re=507562]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: If I get to beat ‘em like a rented mule, I’d like an hour in an elevator with Mitch McConnell. If it’s just for conversation, I’m gonna hold out for Abe Lincoln.

  15. Flanders

    [re=507603]Terry[/re]: Don’t hold it against her. Most of us have first marriages that had clues popping out all over the place, but for love or romance or whatever, figured that everything was gonna work out just fine and we would live happily ever after.

  16. Accordion-o-rama

    [re=507603]Terry[/re]: Lyin’ to Jeebus is the one line ol’ Appalachian Trail ain’t willin’ to cross.

    One the other hand, ole wifey and everyone else in Virginia can suck it.

  17. Jukesgrrl

    [re=507540]Buzz Feedback[/re]: “Fukk this trollop how about some Buttersick posts?”
    Check out HuffPost, they’re covering PandaPsychosis. Sample quotation from a meltdown victim, “Tai sparkles with joy, he brings out that inner essence in you that you’re sometimes not aware of.” I don’t even feel that way about my boyfriend.

  18. DangerousLiberal

    [re=507506]Norbert[/re]: Yes, yes and yes. If she brought her rack with her, it’s time to check the TiVo.

  19. Long Form Def Certificate

    [re=507563]Buttery1000[/re]: I will be pitching her on “doing” me on the Playboy Channel as Super Bowl halftime counterprogramming. Surely, my schlong & her titties should draw more interest than sexagenarian paedophile Pete Townsend & his “windmill”.

  20. lulzmonger

    If it came down to “The View” versus “The Surgery Channel” I’d have to think about it – & I’m pretty squeamish.

    Let’s not do thing & say we did.
