If it weren’t for her dad’s power and influence, Meghan McCain would be smacking gum behind the cash register at an outlet mall.
Nothing against cashiers, of course. But there’s a lot of daylight between people who work common jobs, and people who are repeatedly afforded global platforms from which to spew their purely nepotism-enabled idiocy. And that’s what we get from Meghan McCain, and everyone except her equally swamp-entrenched peers knows it.
Ann Coulter, who I don’t always agree with but often do, refers to Meghan as “a professional Senator’s daughter.” This is a fair and accurate statement. Meghan’s entire career is predicated not on her own skill, ability or even work ethic — but on the fact that her dad is a 3,859 term US Senator. And Meghan’s personality reveals that reality every step of the way: She’s a spoiled rotten little mean girl with an unduly inflated sense of self worth that’s validated by swamp parasites who either hate Trump or love power and, in either case, see fawning over Meghan McCain as a productive means to their preferred ends.
The media just love her. She’s bounced around from cushy gig to cushy gig; everywhere from SNL and The Daily Beast, to Fox News and now ABC. In the latter few roles, she preaches the swamp-over-country drivel that Democrats, media and establishment Republicans wish the rest of us rubes would “get.” And the middle-aged McCain does it all under the pretense of speaking for a younger generation of Republicans.
Meghan McCain doesn’t speak for anyone. Her lazily-crafted opinions are as shallow as her credentials. She’s yet to bring even a shred of substantive, original thought to the table that promotes the virtues of Liberty and American Exceptionalism which amplify the American Right (ie Republicanism) she claims to align with. Instead, every sentiment she makes news for sounds something like…
I just think Republicans need to be more like Democrats and that’s what I’m hearing from all my super young 40 year old Republican friends and TV producers and pro-Resistance Twitter followers who all tell me I’m right and so it’s obvious that I am and now I’ll wait patiently for my persistently Democrat audiences to applaud me for being so forward thinking as to identify with and support literally every one of their emotionally-charged feels except I do it under the guise of being a ‘Republican’ because my dad is one and he’s known for being a maverick and I want to be considered edgy so that’s what I am too and by the way anyone who disagrees with me is either an idiot or a racist but probably both and I just think the world would be better if there were world peace and I don’t see why that’s so hard for people to accept that but whatevs I’ll never understand all these morons like Donald Trump and Sean Hannity who for some reason get more respect from the people in the grassroots who I’m totally one of except for the fact that y’know like I’ve never actually worked for anything in my life and y’know like I’m still up here in front of the cameras with all of you guys in the mainstream media but the reason I’m here is because my super young 40 year old Republican and TV producer friends have named me the voice of their generation and I totes earned that on my merits and you guys should all listen to me.
Enter a handful of NeverTrump writers and editors hanging on by a thread to their own credibility and jobs in conservative media, to spin the above idiocy in to a headline that reads “Meghan McCain EVISCERATES Joy Behar and Donald Trump AT THE SAME TIME!!!1!”
I’ve bitten my tongue on McCain for a long time. I frankly feel a little bad for her. But a few years in to Trump’s takeover of the GOP, and her kicking/screaming tantrums over that reality coupled with the fawning swamp media who adore her for it, and my patience has run out.
And out of respect of her family and her father during a difficult time, I can’t even say all the things I really want to say. While her ailing father’s mortality is being manipulated by the media to frame their ongoing partisan narrative(s), I — a lowly blogger with little-to-no actual reach or voice — won’t stoop to those same levels of dragging a dying man in to my political fights.
Of course there’s no getting around the fact that her father’s political prominence is all that’s satiated Meghan’s spoiled rotten lust for fame, and so I’ll note that much. But that’s where I’ll stop, for now, when it comes to ensnaring Senator McCain in my criticisms of his daughter. There is however much more to say, and should Meghan still be a factor at a time when it’s more appropriate to level additional criticisms, I’ll do it. (Spoiler alert: She won’t be.) But now isn’t that time.
And so looking solely at Meghan’s own social, professional and intellectual deficits and in no way auditing or articulating their proximity to what will be her father’s legacy — I’ll get to the point…
There is nothing Meghan McCain has ever done in her entire public life that is in any way “brave.” There’s nothing she’s brought to the table that wasn’t already there. There’s zero nobility or honor in her attempts to help frame so many of our nation’s conversations. There is only a spoiled rotten brat who has been foist to the upper echelons of media by equally inbred swamp parasites.
I’m a 40 year old short-of-the-mark Christian and conservatarian who finds a home in the Republican party. I’ve long surmised that if people want to combat the greatest threat to marriage they should focus on divorce, including those they casually ignore among their own friends and family, rather than on sexual preference. My commitment to mitigating identity-based division and disparity (ie, defeating racism and bigotry) is well-documented and towers at the top of my efforts and aspirations. The only time I’ve said “all Muslims” is when I’m talking about the media and Left’s efforts to segregate and manipulate them. And contrary to the media’s claims which are then reinforced by Meghan’s lectures, many other Republicans are also hip to these positions and sentiments and don’t need the “leadership” of Meghan f**king McCain to realize them. And I’m sick to death of watching her get reacharounds from every corner of the swamp/mainstream media every time she spits out some stupid, lazy bullshit like this…
“Joe Biden is one of the great political leaders of all time.” Really, Meghan?
Joe Biden is a dirtbag, politically born and raised in the filthiest depths of the swamp. And if he’s embedded himself in the McCain’s grief during this difficult time, then it’s not without his own political aspirations at the forefront. I can’t imagine watching my own dad so visibly face mortality as John McCain, by all accounts, is right now. (I say “by all accounts” because I still believe in miracles and would love to see, and pray for, one now that will spare Senator McCain for decades to come.) And having endured the unthinkable tragedy of burying his own son, I’m sure Biden is able to scrape together a similar sentiment of humanity in his respect and support for Meghan’s family. But I guaranf**kingtee you he wouldn’t come within 100 miles of them if he weren’t angling for a 2020 run. It’s no secret that John McCain is among the most vocal and mainstream-media-revered lieutenants in the NeverTrump army. How powerful for Biden to pick up all of that support for his campaign a few years from now. Little did he know, though many of us could have easily predicted, that Senator McCain’s thimble-deep daughter would start campaigning for him so soon. But here she is doing just that, without even realizing it, as the media squee and cheer in delight. And she doesn’t even realize it because she’s a vehicle fueled solely by DC inbreeding and, but for a few token and entirely useless exceptions, the exhaust fumes she leaves in her massive wake amount to trashing the right and propagandizing for the left.
On deck for similar analysis: Ana Navarro, Rick Wilson, Amanda Carpenter, Seth and Bethany Mandel (probably the most aggressive case of couples IDS ever documented), Steve Schmidt, Nicolle Wallace and Tara Setmayer to name a few. “I see now! You just hate anyone who criticizes Trump!” Wrong. I often disagree with people who criticize Trump, but the preceding names and others who will imminently be added to that list are — like Meghan McCain — the manifestation of undue amplification; promoted as arbiters of right-minded messaging efficacy despite careers built only on failure and, however unintended, service exclusively to the Left.
