Video: The obligatory “Meghan McCain finally comments on Palin” clip

posted at 2:43 pm on August 31, 2010 by Allahpundit

It really is obligatory. The road to this glorious convergence of eternal Hot Air memes has been long and rocky, my friends. It started with Meggie Mac’s declaration last January that “Sarah Palin is the only part of the campaign that I won’t comment on publicly,” wound on through the first teasing revelation last summer that Sarahcuda would figure prominently in her book, and detoured to surprising statements of respect for a hockey mom turned governor who, whatever one may think of her, can “kick ass” in politics. This is a journey we’ve taken, you and I. And now here we are.

Stephanopoulos naturally gets bogged down in dishing about Palin, which inexplicably seems to irritate McCain even though it’s the best way to help move her book, but the juiciest stuff is in ABC’s story about this, not the clip. Go figure that Team Maverick wouldn’t want someone who referred to their VP candidate as “The Time Bomb” out on the trail with them. As for the MegMac-haters in the audience, there’s something for you here too: The clip starts with her talking about being kicked off the bus and ends with her basically being disinvited from a White House dinner — as the dinner’s getting under way. Exit question one: Will she crack the Amazon Top 100? She’s at #896 as I write this but that’s up from #1,566 just an hour or so ago. Exit question two: What to make of the fact that the book currently being featured with hers in the “Frequently Bought Together” feature is … this one?

Meghan McCain is an idiot.

I knew the muzzle would be off this big mouth and verbal diarrhea would spew.

Who would read her book? I’d rather read Bella Pelosi’s. And I’d rather read Bill Ayer’s, oops, Obama’s than hers!

50sGuy on August 31, 2010 at 2:49 PM

What’s most remarkable is that she talks about uncertainty and tumult in the McCain campaign after Palin arrived…but what was the atmosphere beforehand? Joy? Rapture? They were getting pummeled. Palin provided the only boost they really had in the latter half of 2008, and it disintegrated when they locked her in the closet.

In general, I have a fondness for behind the scenes political books. But I wouldn’t read this one if I were spending a year in solitary confinement with just this book to keep me company.

RachDubya on August 31, 2010 at 2:53 PM

One more thing … anyone else notice that Amazon did post any one who reviewed the book? Maybe that’s because no one she sent it to read it.

Ian on August 31, 2010 at 2:53 PM

Sarah Palin just stumped for John McCain in Arizona…this kid needs a dictionary – to look up ingrate, there is a picture of her there.

Well to be fair ABC booked Paris Hilton, but she was you know unavailable…Being thought of as “Available” is NoT a good thing Meghan.

BTW, she isn’t aging well, and it’s only been a couple of months since I saw the last pic. She needs a lecture from Madame MO regarding her diet.

I want to give the McCains reasonable doubt maybe she doesn’t speak to them about how her behavior reflects on the entire family. She’s an adult there isn’t anything they can do but wish she would grow the hell up.

She’s not forthcoming about the reason she was kicked out of the Whitehouse.

Oh my gawd…. I liked it better when her daddy was campaigning for the senate so she had to keep her stoopid mouth shut.

shar61 on August 31, 2010 at 3:03 PM

The McCains using the Palins up till the last drop….

She wrote a whole book about her shallow observations. I wonder if there is any scratch and sniff?

Dr Evil on August 31, 2010 at 3:04 PM

who is she and why should we listen to what she has to say about Gov. Palin?

SilentWatcher on August 31, 2010 at 3:04 PM

ABC has posted a lengthy excerpt from her book. It’s awful. You want to place your testes in a blender by the fourth paragraph.

amerpundit on August 31, 2010 at 3:04 PM

She wrote on Twitter that she moved back home because she was always on the road so it was cheaper and that was where her friends were.

I find it odd that after 4 years at Columbia plus, she has no friends in NYC, that she is worth millions but can’t afford to live in NYC, and that she hasn’t figured out that if she got an actual job, she might have more dinero.

Blake on August 31, 2010 at 3:05 PM

I never gave a damn what her dad thought, I sure as hell don’t give a crap about the daughter. Her 15 minutes has been up for 2 years. This only reason this moron gets on any shows at all is because they know they can count on her to bash Republicans. I hate her guts.

Dr Evil on August 31, 2010 at 3:06 PM

The following is part of the book’s description on Amazon:

“Along the way, she falls in love with America–while seeing how far the Republican Party has veered from its core values of freedom, honesty, and individuality.”

Yet she also calls herself a progressive and seems to bash the GOP more than the Dems. I wish she’d just admit she’s a closet Democrat and spare us anymore of her ramblings.

Doughboy on August 31, 2010 at 3:07 PM

“Will she crack the Amazon Top 100? She’s at #896 as I write this but that’s up from #1,566 just an hour or so ago”

I imagine her mom is buying bulk copies as we post.

throw some big hubcap sized sunglasses on her and give her a few jello shooters and Snooki has a fellow party gal.

I take solace in the fact that six months from now I’ll find her book at yard sales for 50 cents.

jennifernaz on August 31, 2010 at 3:07 PM

She is right about one thing, she is not like Palin at all, maybe that’s why her book is in the pits and Palin’s was #1. I won’t be wasting space or insulting the serious political content contained on my e-reader with her book.

Done That on August 31, 2010 at 3:08 PM

Isn’t she on Jersey Shore?

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2010 at 2:45 PM

Snooki at least understands the effects of excessive taxation on business, at least when it comes to tanning salons. Meghan won’t get it until Obama starts pushing extra taxes on beer and she sees her Budweiser inheritance fund going up in smoke.

upinak on August 31, 2010 at 3:10 PM

The clip starts with her talking about being kicked off the bus and ends with her basically being disinvited from a White House dinner — as the dinner’s getting under way

They needed a bigger bus…..
and
the White House chef exclaimed, “I’m a chef dammit, not a cattle farmer!!”

I don’t like Meggie, and she is basically an air head (empty suit would not work well here), but she wasn’t that bad in this exchange. Steffy was more of the idiot constantly trying to play up the Palin drama. I’ll even give kudos to Meggie for pushing back saying the book is not all about Palin. Unfortunately having Palin’s name tied to it is the only way she’ll sell anything.

Yes, lots of heartache… my condolences AP.

Exit question: If Palin is the nominee, would she vote for her…hmmmm
