I love this girl. Like, so hard. She’s sweet and she’s savvy, she’s hot and she’s intelligent, and there’s really not a lot more hotness going on than a Republican conservative that’s willing to endorse gay marriage. Haven’t you heard? I’d totally do Meghan McCain and her fabulous, intelligent rack.
PLAYBOY: Conservatives are as hard on you as liberals. Right-wing blogger Dan Riehl sniped that “this self-indulgent set of mega-breasts doesn’t belong anywhere near a TV studio commenting on anything.”
MCCAIN: Who says stuff like that? Some guys out there just can’t handle a woman with a strong opinion. And the quickest way to cut down a woman is to talk about her appearance. Do I care? No. Every guy I’ve ever dated and every boyfriend I’ve ever had—nobody ever complained about my body. And there are way more important things for me to do than obsess about my weight. We have an election going on, people!
PLAYBOY: You’ve dubbed the 2012 election cycle “the shitty sequel” to 2008.
MCCAIN: Can you argue with that? It’s just been so lame—so many debates, so much blather, so much oversaturation. Granted, my father is not running, so I’m biased, and we have an incumbent president, which changes things. But where’s the electricity? You’d think someone would rise up and tap the frustration and energy of the Occupy movement or the Tea Party, but it just hasn’t happened yet.
PLAYBOY: Visualize for a moment how America would be different had your dad won.
MCCAIN: Oh, Lord. You would have the craziest first daughter ever, who’d be making ridiculous headlines and hurting the administration every step of the way. That aside, I think Dad would have made an incredible president. The recession wouldn’t have been as bad as it is now. We wouldn’t be pulling troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. I think morale in the military and in the country at large would be higher and we’d be much further on the road to recovery.
PLAYBOY: Do you have any tips for the offspring of campaigners on the election trail?
MCCAIN: Get sleep, be nice and shut up. I wasn’t always a peach to be around. I could have been nicer to the Secret Service and some staffers, and I voiced my opinion way too much. It’s really stressful, though. The day before Election Day, I almost overdosed on Xanax. I had …
JUMP IN FOR THE REST!
You know who we haven’t talked about in a long, long time? OK, I know: the headline ruined it. It’s totally Meghan McCain. Remember that one time when she posted a photo of herself on Twitter or something, and it totally displayed her huge, amazing jugs? Yeah, I do too. And even though I disagree with some of her politics, and the fact that she chose to be born to someone who ENDORSED SARAH PALIN as a Vice Presidential candidate, I really dig this girl. She’s got an awesomeness to her that can’t be bought, faked, or even borrowed.
Meghan did a quick interview with the New York Times, and I’d have to say that pretty much ALL of her answers to all of the questions asked were pretty fabulous. Don’t believe me? Check it out:
LEAST-REPUBLICAN PIECE OF CLOTHING: My black studded Christian Louboutin heels. They are hard-core. My friend nicknamed them my dominatrix heels. There’s nothing Republican or political about those shoes.
INDISPENSABLE ITEM: My MacBook. It’s depressing. It’s like my baby. I named it Bambi. My iPhone is named Thumper. How sad am I?
INTERNET DATING? No. I would get slaughtered. My profile would be on Gawker in five seconds.
MATERIAL OBSESSION: I love skulls. I have 10 of them. I love the way they look in my place. I have one on my night stand; one on my desk; crystal ones in my kitchen; one that’s filled with vodka; some with diamond eyes.
HUMAN OBSESSION: I am borderline obsessed with Sofia Coppola. She is unbelievably talented and has a famous father and established herself as a force to be reckoned with in her industry. She’s so much cooler than I am.
BIGGEST FATHER ISSUE: Anything gay …
My favorite show, The View, has announced their newest series of guest co-hosts and it’s really just more of the same. But in a good way.
Joining the ladies will be Meghan McCain (barf, but it’s sometimes fun in a “I hate the world” way to listen to her talk), Valerie Bertinelli, and Victoria Beckham, who apparently just does guest spots on talk shows and competitions now. And of course, Kate Gosselin, the woman with the seven-thousand dollar extensions who used to bone that wild moose, will be seated at the table on March 11th.
If you don’t normally watch The View, I don’t want to know you, but also, you should still probably tune in to check out Kate. Last time she was on the show she was in the midst of her divorce and for the most part, was respectful of her disgusting husband. Now she’s a completely single woman, she’s got her own TV show in the works, she’s got that fly-ass weave and her ex-husbro is dating a 25 year old girl that he was seen making out with all over Sundance. If ever there was an opportunity to see Kate Gosselin become unhinged, this is it. And if she’s smart, she will. Homegirl has to stay relevant if she wants to keep feeding all those kids.
This is one Cindy McCain — wife of former Presidential candidate John McCain — posing for the NOH8 campaign, a part of the fight for marriage equality in this country. Cindy joins her daughter, Meghan, who has long been a vocal supporter of gay marriage.
John McCain’s office said in a statement that the Arizona senator respects the views of members of his family but remains opposed to gay marriage. “Sen. McCain believes the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman,” the statement said.
Ummmm, right. Senator McCain’s political career — financially supported by fearful hate-mongerers — is opposed to gay marriage. I assure you the man himself is not.
It’s fantastic to see high-profile Republicans speaking out in favor of gay marriage. And I’ll bet good money that once McCain retires from politics, he’ll come out in favor of gay marriage as well. Because, ya know, hating people for who they love shouldn’t be a part of government.
Meghan McCain has the Twitterverse up in arms over a picture she posted last night of her cleavage. Actually, I think she was just posing with a book and maybe, possible, sorta, kinda didn’t realize that people would only notice her tits and nothing else.
Last night, after being taken off-guard by the public reaction, McCain alluded to deleting her Twitter account — that is all the rage right now. Today she Tweeted: “I do want to apologize to anyone that was offended by my twitpic, I have clearly made a huge mistake and am sorry 2 those that are offended.”
Do we really live in a world where a liberal Republican can’t publish photos of her boobies without everyone having kittens?
I’m sure that I will be slaughtered in the comments for saying anything negative about the patron saint of young Republicans, but Meghan McCain is just bizarre. If you follow her Twitter, watched The View last week or read her column on The Daily Beast, you know that she’s stepped out ever-so-bravely about how she wears hair extensions. Good for her, right? However, the fact that she thinks she’s the first woman in the public eye to point out that she doesn’t just “wake up like that” is obnoxious. That sentiment is about as trite as any these days. We get it. Celebrities have stylists, chefs, hair weaves, glam squads, et c. We get it. McCain is not the first to point this out, but if you listened to anything she’s been saying lately, you would think that she is. Or at least that she’s under the impression she is.
Then last night came this doozy. As the tweet posted above says, McCain is not only supportive of Tila Tequila, but she’s “proud” to “call her [her] friend”. Ugh. 1) That’s another over used sentiment. Why should that be treated like an announcement? She should have just written “Yes, even I, a presidential candidates daughter, am willing to befriend the occasional whore.” 2) Way to hop on the bandwagon and further complicate the life of Shawne Merrimen, a man who was cleared of the accusation that he choked Tila after an insane fight that was instigated by his request for a foursome.
I’ve really tried to like McCain, I really have. I wanted to support her efforts to educate the youth through her blogging and writing. I wanted to appreciate her unique perspective for what it was, but I no longer can. Yes, while she’s just like us, up late singing “Lady Marmalade” instead of doing work, she’s also used her birth-given position of power to catapult her to a place where she has much more important things to do than defend Tila Tequila. There are women out there who have suffered from domestic violence, even in just the last 24 hours, who are more deserving of her attention. Additionally, McCain’s wishy-washy stance on what her place in the world is (“people should respect me” vs. “I’m just a normal girl like you!”) just shows me over and over again that she’s not worth my attention and that she is, in fact, completely bizarre.
Like every time one of the co-hosts leaves or gets knocked up or has surgery on The View, Babs and Co. have to share the table with a series of fill-in guests. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the resident young conservative blond on the panel has just had her third baby with husband Timothy Hasselbeck and who better to bring in to replace her than another young conservative blond! It has just been announced that when The View returns on September 9th for their fall season, they will be welcoming Meghan McCain to the table as the first guest host.
Tell us in the comments what you think about this decision. Do you think that McCain is a perfect fit to round out the table or are you over her?
