Meghan McCain: Miss McBeef?

Is Meghan McCain confused? Did she think that Ann Coulter dissed her vis-a-vis Laura Ingraham? Just a mere six days after Ingraham unloaded on the Daily Beast blogger and her dad, Meghan wrote “My Beef with Ann Coulter.”*

The very day after Meghan complained that her Dad’s failed candidacy had ruined her social life,** Ingraham, in an interview with Fox & Friends, declared, “I think maybe she [Meghan] should just stop writing insipid blogs and just focus on something positive. These people who are constantly whining about things that don’t matter: Go out and volunteer. I’m sure that you’ll find some nice people to date.”*** Last night FNC’s king of cable Bill O’Reilly remarked that he did not know what had started the one-sided feud with Ann Coulter. Today Fox & Friends co-hosts, Alisyn Camerota, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade elicited no further elucidation in their interview with the flaxen-tressed daughter of John McCain.

Not only does the timing of Meghan’s attacks on Coulter seems to indicate that she has the wrong woman in her sights but also the personal nature appears to reflect that to boot. Meghan decried Coulter as “offensive, radical, insulting” and one who “could be the poster woman for the most extreme side of the Republican Party.”* Not to mention, on F&F today she carped that Coulter had not answered her twenty-question quiz.

Meghan, did you mistake Coulter for Ingraham? Or are you aping Ron Reagan?

    I wrote a piece on the McCain/Coulter one sided fued:

    Snatching the quote directly from Chris Jones’ piece, Ms. McCain writes, “One of the biggest issues from which I seem to drift from the party base is in my support of gay marriage.” Equating anti-gay marriage to the Republican Party or conservatism isn’t exactly accurate. Certainly there are many Republicans who are adamantly opposed to gay marriage but there are just as many Democrats who are opposed to it, as well. Conservatives do not believe gay marriage to be a protected right and are opposed to members of the judicial branch of government usurping what should be a political decision left to the individual states and to the people. Most conservatives (including the moderates and religious of the Democratic Party) are in favour of allowing civil unions.

    Ms. McCain wants to make a name for herself and going after Laura Ingraham wouldn’t add as much controversial ire into her bid for attention. And Ms. Coulter attacked her father during the primaries saying that if the race ended up being between him and Hillary Clinton, she’d be an actively campaigning “Hillary Supporter”.

    As Mr. Jones succinctly points out, politics is a blood sport. Ms. Meghan is attempting what her father would not and that means drawing a little blood.

    Is she is following in her dad’s steps? I.e., is she more willing to draw blood from her fellow Republicans than the Dems?

    I also didn’t remember if it was Coulter or Ingraham. Maybe she did mistake the two, maybe not but I did see a tweet? from her telling Ingraham to stop talking about her body or some s**t…

  5. Al Says:

    While Sen. McCain prides himself a “maverick” for going against his own party, he also strives to be a gentleman and has seldom drawn blood from members of either party. Laudable for sure, but it also makes the angry, clenched pounding fist gestures of his phony. Ronald Reagan, by contrast, proved it was possible to remain a gentleman while still drawing blood.

    Mr. McCain’s daughter has taken notes and knows she can remain a lady even if she uses that clenched fist to inflict injury. She’s going after Republicans right now because conservatives are not her intended audience.
