Meghan McCain has hit a spot of rough luck as of late. It all began with her comments about Ann Coulter, which angered many conesrvatives, in which she stated that she described using several negative adjectives. And while I wasn’t angry at Meghan over this incident, I didn’t think it was a very smart thing to do. It’s not really good PR for someone that is just now trying to make a name for herself in the political world to diss someone that is an established member of the conservative media. Anyway, apparently those comments upset a lot of people more than they should have, including well established conservative pundit Laura Ingraham. I’m a big Laura fan, but this was a bit extreme. On her radio show she made fun of McCain, labeling her a “valley girl”, among other things. Those comments, in my opinion, are completely within reason and I see no problem in them. HOWEVER, Ingraham went on to criticize McCain for her weight, saying she wouldn’t get a spot on MTV’s The Real World because they don’t like plus size models. (Huh? Is this really Laura Ingraham?) Let me just say that I’m not a guy that gets offended or gets hurt feelings very easily, and I have a high tolerance for most things. I take everything in a light-hearted manner and just laugh at everything. This, however, is a bit ridiculous. So Meghan isn’t the skinniest girl in world, she sure isn’t the biggest. She’s a lovely girl who happens to not be a zero; yes, that is possible. Now I’m all about criticism, and I think Meghan deserves her fair share over the Ann Coulter debacle (Whether you like Ann or not, you’ve got to admit Meghan was a bit out of line), but not criticism about a 25 year old girl’s weight. So shame on you Laura, I expected better from you!
