Laura Ingraham Sets the Record Straight

Laurah Ingraham cleared the air on The OReilly Factor.

Laurah Ingraham cleared the air on The O'Reilly Factor.

At the start of the live O’Reilly Factor broadcast tonight, Laura Ingraham took advantage of her guest hosting spot by setting the record straight regarding her weight comments toward Meghan McCain.  The subject of tonight’s Talking Points Memo was the word-twisting nonsense going on on the left.  In the memo, Laura took advantage of her spot by saying that she DID NOT call Meghan McCain fat.  The entire clip was played in the background and, given the full context of the comments, they didn’t sound quite as harsh.  She went on to say that she has constantly said Meghan McCain is a lovely girl and is no way fat, and that it was just another example of the left twisting conservative’s words to push their agenda.  I must say, I admire Ingraham for bringing it up on such a large platform, but I still don’t know if I’m convinced the comments weren’t slightly weight-based.  Actually, without the weight context, saying that about the “plus-sized model” really makes no sense at all.  But Laura generally means what she says and cuts the crap, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.   It was a great little segment; for those who missed it don’t forget to tune in to the next broadcast of The Factor at 10 Pm Eastern.

What do you think  of Laura’s bringing the comments up?  Do you believe she wasn’t making a weight referrence?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.

UPDATE: Meghan McCain Has Choice Words for Laura Ingraham

Meghan McCain chatting with the communists on The View.

What started as Meghan McCain expressing disdian towards Ann Coulter has evolved into a war-of-words of epic proportions.  The most recent developments stemmed from Laura Ingraham jokingly criticizing Meghan’s weight, saying that she couldn’t get a job on MTV’s The Real World because they don’t support plus sized models.  This morning on The View (Trash, trash, trash.  America, do not watch this communist love fest.  Elisabeth Hasselback is okay though.) Meghan sort-of told Laura to “kiss her fat a**” (Sorry, the family reads this and I don’t support profanity. :)).  Well, actually she brought up the time when Tyra walked out it in a bikini and told the world to kiss her fat a**, but Meghan went on to say she felt like saying the same thing to Laura.  So technically she did say it.  This little spat is turning into mud-slinging of the highest degree.  I much prefer Laura to Meghan the RINO (not a weight reference, I promise), but her comments were uncalled for.  At the same time, so were Meghan’s.  I can’t imagine where this will go from here, but I must say it is providing much entertainment for many people, myself included.  Maybe Meghan will realize that she shouldn’t go around trying moderate-ize the party so soon?  I don’t know, but until then I will just sit back and watch this all unfold.

What do you think of Meghan’s remarks?  Should she just have kept her mouth shut?  Or did she do the right thing?  Leave your comments below or e-mail us at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Also, don’t forget to subscribe to our RSS Feed so you don’t miss any of the latest updates in Meghan vs. female Conservative Pundits battle!

What’s Everyone’s Beef With Meghan McCain?

So shes not a zero, she looks fine!

So she's not a zero, she looks fine!

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!
