There are many important news stories I could be blogging about today. The latest polls show a statistical dead heat in the Alabama and Mississippi GOP presidential primaries. Greece has officially defaulted on its debt. Israel has reportedly delayed a military strike on Iran.
My ego tells me that there are thousands of readers checking their RSS feeds waiting to learn the answer to the question: “What will Stacy say about these breaking news developments?”
Yet I am a highly-skilled news industry professional, which is why I must suppress my narcissistic impulse to share my personal opinions on these topics, in order to give readers what they really want: Meghan McCain talking about her breasts.
“I’m not super skinny, I have large breasts, I know, they’re real, I can’t do anything about it, and like the Internet just has this really weird reaction to my body … I’ve seen a therapist about it. … I don’t really need people in politics or people sort of a little bit older to understand me or like me because there’s enough college students that seem to like me, and that’s all I really care about.”
So while I struggle against my egotistical delusion that you might be interested in my personal opinions about the Greek economy or the Republican presidential campaign, Cousin Meghan has no such dilemma: She knows exactly why you’re interested in her, and she’s making the most of it.
