The Bristol Palin/Meghan McCain Catfight Goes Another Round

Bristol Palin isn’t done making catty observations about Meghan McCain. First, in her memoir, Not Afraid Of Life, she wrote Meghan was always complaining. Some of that is only fair, I suppose, after Meghan’s swipes at Sarah Palin in her own book. However, last night Bristol stopped by Fox News to bare her claws once again — this time to make Meghan look like a rich bitch elitist and a dilettante opportunist. “I just want to note that her dad is a politician and my mom is a politician, but that never defined me,” she tells Sean Hannity. “I do stuff for myself.” BRISTOL. PLEASE. Does she seriously think she’d be raking in the big bucks as an abstinence-only speaker, foxtrotting on “Dancing With The Stars,” or publishing a friggin’ memoir at age 20 if her mother was not Sarah Palin?

A Completely Uncomfortable Engagement — Between A Politician And A High School Girl

This week in totally disturbing nuptials news, a staffer on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign met his bride-to-be while on a tour stop on behalf of the Republican candidate. The only problem? Oh, she was 17, and he was visiting her high school. There are so many gross gems from the romance of 29-year-old Christopher Cox and his now 21-year-old bride Andrea Catsimatidis, featured in the New York Times Vows section this weekend. As the couple explains it to the Times:

“She was the only person I remembered meeting that day,” he said. Ms. Catsimatidis, who at the time was five days shy of her 18th birthday, found herself taken by Mr. Cox’s political convictions, as well as his boyish looks.

 

“All the girls were cutting me in line,” remembered Ms. Catsimatidis, now 21. “They all wanted to meet the cute McCain guy.”

Oh, uh, okay. Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Rocks A Visor With John McCain’s Name Blacked Out

Sarah Palin has obviously never heard this expression: “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” While vacationing in Hawaii with her family, she made three mistakes. First, she wore a visor, which is practically the biggest fashion faux pas ever. Second, the visor had John McCain’s name on it, and everyone knows that dude lost the election, so it just makes her look like a sore loser. But her third and biggest mistake of all is … she blacked out McCain’s name, which was emblazoned on the front of the hat, with a black marker. Really? Really!? Keep reading »
