“My initial reaction was ‘Who the hell is Sarah Palin?’ like everybody else. Like the rest of the country, I had no idea who she was, and I was actually crying on the bus on the way to the rally.”

The draft cover for Meghan McCain‘s forthcoming book, Dirty Sexy Politics, starring an elephant named Thai, is a lot less dirty and sexy than we expected. But I guess she is a senator’s daughter with an image to uphold … [Hyperion Books] Keep reading »
For the past few months, I’ve said that my dream imaginary dinner party guest list would include Einstein, Snooki, Cleopatra, Meghan McCain, and Joe Strummer. I liked this grouping because no one would have any idea how to process any of the others. Or so I thought. But I just saw that Meghan has interviewed Snooki for a Q & A on the Daily Beast. Apparently, Meghan is an avid “Jersey Shore” watcher and is the one who told her papa, John, when Snooki dissed Barack Obama for including a tax on tanning in the healthcare bill.
After the jump, the choicest quotes from Snooki. Hint: she voted for McCain because she thinks he’s cute. Keep reading »
Twitter is obviously magic. On Monday, it brought together Meghan McCain and Courtney Love. Meghan kicked off the lovefest, tweeting, “I forgot how much I love Courtney Love until I watched her Vh1 Behind The Music, I totally used to put sparkles in my hair like her circa 98.” To which Courtney responded, “xoxoxoxo.” Then Meghan went all fan girl, writing, “Big fan Courtney, you’re Celebrity Skin album was the soundtrack to my teenage years! xoxoxo.” Courtney was, of course, glad to hear that anyone thinks she’s not bonkers, so she tweeted, “I love her. Meghan rocks! xoxoxo.” Obviously, this new bestie pairing makes tons of sense because … they’re both blond? Yeah, that’s the best I’ve got on the logic of this friendship.

There’s one major issue that sets Meghan McCain apart from other Republicans — she’s in favor of legalizing gay marriage. I admire McCain for going against her party — and many in the Democratic Party as well — on this issue, but I loathe that she manages to make her pro-gay marriage stance all about her. Case in point: today’s completely non-sensical Daily Beast column, in which McCain somehow manages to argue that she, as a pro-gay marriage Republican, gets more s**t from her party than pro-sex tape/anti-gay marriage Carrie Prejean. “If you’re a Republican, is it better to be in favor of gay marriage or to make a sex tape? That is the question.” Ugh, really? Keep reading »
Meghan McCain is threatening to pull a Miley Cyrus and quit Twitter! Meanie commenters got a little too vicious with the Senator’s daughter after she posted a Twitpic depicting her, um, choice of literature.
