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.
