Reading Meghan So You Don’t Have To

The right half of the blogosphere owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Betsy Woodruff, William F. Buckley Fellow at the National Review Institute, for she has done something few of us would have the courage to do. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, for our sake Ms. Woodruff took upon herself the vile, filthy, nigh-unspeakable task of reading the latest opus of RINO Poster Girl Meghan McCain, America, You Sexy Bitch, and writing a brief review of this appalling tome.

Now, nobody has ever accused Ms. McCain of being the brightest bulb on the tree, but it is evident from Woodruff’s review that the MSNBC commentator has sunk to a new low of incoherence, such that she apparently finds former Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich the solution to America’s political problems today. The less said about her (more) liberal co-author’s scribblings the better. Nonetheless, I recommend Woodruff’s review, not because any of us need a reminder of just how useless La McCain is as any kind of political commentator, but because in these stressful times of double-digit unemployment, autocratic Cabinet secretaries, and mad bombers turned political operatives, we all need a good laugh once in a while, and Woodruff’s review delivers.

    The last time I saw anybody get beaten that badly, Los Angeles rioted.

    I am a long time skulker of your blog, and have been blogging myself for a very long time. It seems that I have met everyone in the conservative blogosphere but you.

    I have never sent you a tip, so I thought I would give it a try.

    I would love to see you put your spin on this story…

    I thought Dennis Kucinch returned to his home planet? Maybe Ms. McCain wants to hitch along?

    I do not feel I owe Betsy Woodruff a thing. I, like most sensible people, was not planning on reading the book; I was waiting  for the movie to hit my local 3-D IMAX theater.

    I wasn’t going to buy (much less read) the book either, but I do love to see Meggie Mac take a whuppin’.

     They shoot X-rated films in 3-D IMAX format?

     That’s really Stacy, as you know he is hiding out… 🙂
    So glad I don’t live there. MD is not much better 🙁

     For Will Ferrell in a blonde wig and falsies?  Betcher ass.

    “she seems to think that her friendship with Black is somehow remarkable, proof that there’s still hope for America.”

    Having the RV plunge into the Grand Canyon while they founded their mutual admiration society would have been much more hopeful.

    I can think of no greater commentary on the decline of American culture than that people actually buy this book.  Yet, it’s already at #7,679 at Amazon – with a bullet!

    The question is, Wombat – and your answer will tell us a lot about your motives here – would you like to be the one administering the whuppin’ [and what would you wear to the occasion]?

    Like, it’s cool, you know.

     There are some things this burrowing marsupial will not do for love nor money, and “disciplining” Ms. McCain easily makes the list.

    I for one will not speak an unkind word against Michael Ian Black.  After spending days on end in an RV with Meghan McCain surely he has suffered enough.

    OK, it could have been a SmartCar, if either of them knew how to work it…

    What if we administered her a drug that would not allow her to speak during the process?

    I thank those who read Meggie so we do not have to.  Thanks Wombat for posting on it.  Even if you need a shower afterwards.
