Meggie Mac launches her new show, “Raising McCain,” on something called Pivot this week. The reviews are coming in, and John McCain’s thin-skinned daughter doesn’t appreciate Salon’s suggestion that a so-called pundit should bone up on history — even if it, like, totes happened before she was born.

It’s impossible to top the most entertainingly brutal review of Meggie Mac’s work ever written, so we’re not sure why Salon bothered with the boring rehash of criticism. (Oh, never mind, it’s Salon.) But the article did inspire this tweet from the spokeswoman for Generation Gestation, so there’s that.

Yes. Because calling her “self-absorbed, entitled and unimaginative” is almost like handing her a noose.

Will Meghan get her lawyers to have the Salon piece taken down? After all, that’s kind of her thing when she finds criticism “highly offensive.”

      From the Salon article :

      Asked, on Bill Maher’s “Real Time,” to defend a point she made
      criticizing the Obama administration in the context of the Reagan years,
      McCain replied, “I wasn’t born yet, so I don’t know.”

    • Richard Jefferies

      Exactly what Stephen said. We revel in it because McCain has made a..uhm…career out of bashing the conservative base in favor of check pants, Rockefeller like Republicanism, doused with her own brand of hip, pop-culture chic. She thinks she’s cool, but like the proverbial frog, has just been stung by the scorpion.

      I hope she’s learned the lesson her father never could. The left doesn’t like you. You can’t be accepted unless you genuflect to their statist ideology unreservedly. There is no compromise. They use you for what they can get out of you and then they discard you when you are of no use to them. Ironic that, it’s what her daddy did to Sarah Palin.

      Yeah, a vacuous trust-fund brat is exactly the same as a self-made woman who became the youngest and first female governor of her state and governed with an approval rating that was consistently 20-30 points higher at any given point in her term than the beta-male you worship who was just turned out like a prison-bitch by a couple of dictators.

      As far as looks go, there’s no comparison. Palin is in better shape and more athletic at 50 than Meggie Mac has ever been or ever will be in at any point in her life.

      Lastly, Palin is a MENSA candidate compared to the ignorant plagiarist Obunghole chose as a running mate.

      • http://mpj.co WhoDat

        You assume that I dislike Palin because I “worship” Obama. You couldn’t be further from the truth.

        But, in any case, Obama has succeeded at more things than Palin has.

            I think he was looking for an accomplishment other than checking the “get elected president” box. Any accomplishment. The very worst, non accomplished president will be elected president.

            Ignoring the idiotic things he said/did, bashing the opponent at every turn, stacking the debates with liberal moderators. With that kind of media behind him, Joe Biden could have been elected twice.

            That’s not really an accomplishment. And other than that, nothing but disaster at a time he’s supposed to be doing good for the American people. Doubling the number of people on food stamps is not really an accomplishment either.

          • V the K

            Don’t forget having the entire national news media signed on as campaign cheerleaders. Heck, Nadal Hassan got better press treatment than Obama’s opponents.

            Yes, and we can tell by his time in office that he agrees with you that just getting elected is the highest achievement one can ever have.

    I read that salon article for the specific purpose of finding out what history she did not know. Instead they called her self absorbed and added no examples or evidence. I’m not a writer, but at what point in time did journalism schools teach writers that evidence need not apply? If i can get all the information in your article from a headline, why not just write headlines?

      • Richard Jefferies

        It was a stupid statement, but hardly revealed a lack of historical accuracy. It was no worse a statement that Paul Begala using language like “Ronald Reagan blamed Jimmy Carter all the time” to the cheers of Bill Maher’s dunce audience. No specific history was being discussed.

        Meghan’s stupidest move that day was thinking she could go on Bill Maher’s show and not get ambushed. Her lack of historical knowledge was not knowing how Bill Maher works.
