Poor Meghan McCain. Being a “progressive Republican” means you’ve got to please everyone, but sadly, Meggie hasn’t quite mastered that delicate art. As a useful idiot for the Left, she’s best known ’round these parts for being soundly mocked by conservatives. Today, though, it was liberals who went after her.

When she lamented “Zero Dark Thirty” director Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar snub and President Obama’s decidedly androcentric cabinet, McCain didn’t find many sympathetic ears:

Most of those who weighed in were pretty ticked, actually:

Several people reminded her that President Obama was (allegedly) planning to nominate Amb. Susan Rice to be the next Secretary of State. (She withdrew her own name from consideration to spare him from having to make that gutsy call.)

That she was. A dishonest woman who was an extremely unqualified one for the post.

Meghan’s father, Sen. John McCain, played an integral role in vetting Rice — as he should have. But liberals didn’t see it that way, and they smacked her around:

Ouch. She eventually deleted her tweet, as she is wont to do when she’s not unanimously praised:

But the damage was already done:

Clearly, she still needs a little work when it comes to winning friends and influencing people. Better luck next time, Meghan.

    She’s so whiny and stupid it’s not funny.

    • Rella

      Maybe a little funny? Maybe she deserves an “emoticum” of respect (giggle giggle)

        I see what you did there :)

          I wanted to put a link for people who maybe missed this bit of MeggieMac brillance. I had to giggle again at her reply “thanks guys for obsessing over my every waking word.”
          What is truly not funny is a woman who would have been laughed out the door for even applying to college in years past because she’s so dumb actually got through four years of college and has a degree from Columbia! The dumbing down of America.

  • michael s

    No sympathy for her and her still sour grape eating dad.

    • Catchance

      Better sour grapes than Obama’s lies. You’ve been gobbling them down like M&Ms.

      I know, right? He should have followed the good sportsman lead of Kerry, Gore, and all the other liberals that voted for them. They were so magnanimous toward Bush and took their loss in stride. Wait a minute……

    • lainer51

      sour grape analogy again?

  • Renny

    She’s an idiot. So, even pouncing all around here.

  • lainer51

    like father – like fat daughter.

    • Ksmith934Smith

      That’s uncalled for even if you don’t like someone. Don’t say things you wouldn’t say to someone’s face.

      • TheOriginalDonald

        Sorry but Meghan McCain ain’t Kate Moss thin.

        • Ksmith934Smith

          Neither is most of America .

      • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

        so since I would say it to her face I can say it here?

        • Ksmith934Smith

          Whatever I just think its cowardly to call people names sitting behind a keyboard. You don’t actually have to see the hurt your words cause.

          • TheOriginalDonald

            Shouldn’t you be talking to Michael Moore and his friends then??????

          • Ksmith934Smith

            Who? Do you mean the liberal Michael Moore? He’s incredibly rude and could definitely use a lesson in manners.

            so I guess we all agree:
            Whatever I just think its cowardly to call people names — You don’t actually have to see the hurt your words cause.

          • Ksmith934Smith

            I’m assuming you think I mean only you should have manners and not call names. It goes for those on both sides obviously. I never even said I liked Megan McCain. All I said was calling someone fat is uncalled for and it serves no purpose .

          • lainer51

            I don’t assume anything about you, unlike you do about others.

          • Ksmith934Smith

            I hope that passive aggressive schtick doesn’t work your loved ones.

      • lainer51

        NEVER said I didn’t like her – did you hear that when those voices were talking in your head? She is fat, nothing wrong with that, but it is a fact. There are worse things — like hearing voices …

        • Ksmith934Smith

          So you are equating suggesting manners with me hearing voices?

          • lainer51

            Not at all… 1. I don’t take “suggestions” from you, 2. You stated I didn’t like M.M… never said that, never meant that, never thought that… so i could only presume you received that information from some other source – possibly voices in your head…

          • Ksmith934Smith

            People don’t typically call people they “like” fat so say the voices in my head.

          • lainer51

            again, those darn voices… never said I “liked” her either. Don’t know her enough to like or dislike, but she is still fat.

      Only the father got to where he was by at least a bit of savvy and tenacity. Meghan McCain, had she been born in my town, would in all likelihood become a freelance, puff piece writer for the lowest regarded local rag if not for the coattails she was able to ride.

  • Catchance

    How ironic.
    Conservative’s can’t stand her whining about the lack of women in O’s cabinet because she only cares about gender, not ability.
    Liberals can’t stand her whining about the lack of women because, her father.

  • FreedomFighter

    These ignorant liberals are insinuating the GOP is anti woman by railroading Susan Rice, while the GOP is doing the same thing to a couple of these old white men Obama nominated. They don’t understand its not about male or female, its about qualifications and their past record.

    • Kevin Krom

      To the race- and gender-obsessed, NOTHING is about qualifications and record, only making sure the “right” counts are in place.

  • waltermitty2012

    Apparently Susan Rice was the only female Obama intended to nominate in his second term. And liberals are upset at McCain? They should point their outrage a little more to the left.

        Does this mean she is cheating on Duncan Hines?

    Turncoats get slapped on both sides.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I wonder if Meghan IS into 50 Shades Of Grey 😛

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

    I fail to see the logic (hah, logic) in her statement, as usual. Equal rights for women means just that. You are supposed to be neither penalized nor rewarded for your gender.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Marcy-Cook/1001619613 Marcy Cook

    Judging by the comments that some “women” make I hate to say it but I don’t blame Obama for not wanting a bunch of whiney, lefty, gimmee my free birth control fanatics working with him. And as for the Susan Rice argument…lest we forget that stupid coward withdrew her name all on her own. She could have tried for the job but even Susan knew she wasn’t qualified. Not remotely qualified.

    • Kevin Krom

      He didn’t withdraw her nomination – he never submitted one, IIRC. The moment the Senate GOP made it clear that her part in the Benghazi cover-up was going to be fair game, all talk of nominating Rice fizzled away.

    So how did Twitchy determine these were liberals. Most of the attacks on McCain have come from the rightwing. Twitchy is for twits!

    • lainer51

      McCain is a HORRIBLE representative for conservatives, so we call him out…something libs never do on their side.
