Old Glory



That’s me! I completely and utterly sluttily gave up information (obvious, but verified) to a gossip-razzi site last week, for MONEY. It was a truly surreal experience, but the person harvesting my knowledge was actually really cool, and happened to share my politics. I have more to tell them on the subject, too. Never underestimate that whole six-degrees-of thing.

P.S. I’ve been engaged for a month now!

P.P.S. I also need to write about meeting  my other love. Am still too overwhelmed/ADD-ridden.



-at least I’m guessing it is a plant.  After all, Obama’s developed quite a green thumb lately. Inspired by Patterico and his excellent-as-always investigations, I’m now even more skeptical (is that possible?) of every instance of Obama Amateur Theater.

At today’s health care town hall held in Grand Junction, Colorado, it was an expectedly warmer audience than yesterday’s Montana appearance. And of course we’re now listening extra hard at the intent of each “random” civilian chosen to ask a question. This one really, REALLY stood out to me today:

(Applause.)All right, gentleman right here in the t-shirt.  Hold on one second, we got a mic coming.

Q    Thank you for coming to Colorado.  It’s a great place.

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s a great place.  (Applause.)

Q    You touched on this.  I would like you to expand a little more.  This problem with misinformation in our country, it seems to me that it’s not only just hurting health care reform, health insurance reform, it’s dividing our country.  (Applause.)  Is it not maybe time — I think we all know where it’s coming from.  Is it not time that something can be done — okay, I got to watch what I’m saying, but —

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, look, let me — let me just — let me address this. 

Maybe it was just the Fox coverage, but I don’t remember getting to see the question-asker’s face. He also doesn’t say his name. Wouldn’t be a big deal, but every single other question in this particular town hall had a name, a face, or a short biographical backround included. Some shared only a first name, others first, last, and full name of their place of employment. See full text of the meeting here.

Of course I would never have noticed the fact that this “gentleman in the t-shirt” chose to not reveal his name or profession had he not asked the question he did. But he asked a very fishy question, indeed. Or wait, I’d actually say it was more of a statement than a question, don’t you think?

So we can’t see him, don’t know his name, don’t know his (supposed) profession. How will we ever be able to prove he’s just a Team O plant? Exactly.

or, Meghan “I have more followers than you” McCain learns that quantity does not equal quality.

first, IKNOWIKNOWIKNOWIKNOW I need a new topic. It will happen someday soon, after someone answers this question (and then we’ll get to the comedy):

do you remember this, by chance?


Okay. Let’s forget how rude, classless and catty that was of Princess MeMe. Let’s just take her at her word. She doesn’t care, right? She’s independent-thinking, a Maverick, doesn’t need anyone else to “represent” her badassness except her badass self. Got it! Soooooo…what happens about four days later? RIIIIGHT. Her Daily Beast column downright obsessing over–and misquoting--Michelle Malkin. What happened, Meghan? Were you kidding about caring, did you decide you really did care, or should I just continue to not take you seriously?

Maybe we should turn to her followers to answer the question. After all…

I don’t know exactly what about me threatens them [Malkin et al] so much, other than that people are listening to me.

Here is what they are saying. These are real tweets gathered over the past few weeks. Behold, the influence of the Voice of the Young GOP Generation, if Meggie Mac were Queen:

Oh Meggersssss. Why do you make it so easy?

She’s so FAMOUS now, people are recognizing Meghan McCain all over.



Classy girl! You tell em’! We need awsumhott hotties like you in the GOP! You do it with such style, and grace, and, uh:


rockstarNot so fast there darlin’! Don’t you see just how much you and Ann Coulter have in common? Things you are known to be very proud of? You’re both Polemicists. Lots of people love you. Lots of people really hate you. You’re both blondies! And, you both adore excessive eye makeup.












Meghan, I know girls get really jealous of other girls sometimes, especially when they’re a lot like you in some ways, or when they’re more famous than you. I know you’re not really that bright, but I’d say even you should know that Ann would probably get recognized drinking a beer as well. Someone who likes her might even call her a “rockstar”. Even though your cute little ego won’t let you believe that, it’s true. You also didn’t really need to say something so childish and catty on your Twitter. I’d say you were being a…DUMBASS.

Grow up. Reflect your upbringing in a more appropriate way. Or don’t, actually. It’s helping me realize just who the other dumbasses are out there, whenever someone jumps to your defense. THANKS MEGS!


oh yeah.

oh yeah.
