More From the World of Meghan

Meghan McCain followed up her busy past few weeks with an appearance on Larry King Live last night, covering everything from her tattoo to the Laura Ingraham dispute.  It’s an interesting interview, I must say.  I’m not going to bore you every detail (If you want the full transcript, AOL has it here.) but here are some of the things I consider the highlights:

  • She said that anyone who doubts that Obama isn’t taking the economy seriously is ridiculous; however, she fears he is on the verge of over-exposure in the media, which could alienate older supporters.
  • She supports Obama, as does her father.  Who, in case any of you missed this, is John McCain.
  • Says the Republican party is full of differing personalities.  Not all want Obama to fail.
  • She did an interview with Bobby Jindal’s wife, Supyira.  The interview can be found here.
  • She considers herself a progressive Republican (A.K.A. RINO.  Meh.).  She says she’s liberal on social issues; e.g. gay marriage and abortion.  She’s pro-life personally, but thinks people should have that option.
  • Says she agrees with her father on war and the economy and is a fiscal conservative.
  • Somone in an airport told her to “kiss my fat a**” (Got to keep it decent. :),  just as she did to Laura Ingraham last week.  She says that the fued is over as far as she’s concerned.
  • She claimed she didn’t know who Laura Ingraham was before all of this.
  • She thinks Supyira Jindal (Wife of Bobby Jindal) is a better role model than Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham because the Coulter and Ingraham give off the impression women in the Republican party have to fit into “this one box”.
  • The interview wrapped up with a personal touch: She has a star tattoo on her foot.

I give Meghan a little credit with the Coulter/Ingraham/McCain throwdown because I really do think she handled it well.  However, the girl is a Class A RINO.  I am glad to hear, though, that her “progressive” traits are in social issues rather than fiscal and government size.  At least we don’t have to worry about her voting for bailout upon bailout if she ever became a senator or representative, though I don’t imagine there is much chance of that.

What do you think of the interview?  Were you surprised at the fact that she has a tattoo?  And how about that guy in the airport throwing her words back at her?  Cool guy.  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Also, look for today’s Poll of the Day regarding the interview!

Poll of the Day Results

Although the results are in, the polls aren’t closed; you can click on the title of the poll and cast your late ballot!

March 14th- Are You Liberal or Conservative?

  • This could be the most obvious poll that will ever be on the site, but here are the results:  77% of readers of The Conservative Journal are more conservative, while 23% identify more with liberal viewpoints.  To those 23% in the minority:  I’m glad you here!  Rally some more of liberal friends so we get some comment debates going!  Seriously though, thank you to all that voted and read The Conservative Journal!

March 15th- Whose Side of the Fued Are You On?

  • This results of this poll are a lot closer than I expected:  When asked whose side Conservative Journal readers were (Either Jim Cramer or Jon Stewart) on in their little feud, 53% sided with Jon Stewart, and 39% sided with Jim Cramer; with the remaining  8% having no opinion.  I voted for Jim Cramer because I think his show is funnier, but I wasn’t expecting many to vote for him.  Guess everyone agrees?

March 16th- Internet problems prevented a poll on this day.

March 17th- What Do You Think About Laura Ingraham’s Comments?

  • In this poll, 63% thought that Laura Ingraham crossed the line with her “plus-sized model” comment to Meghan McCain, 23% think America needs to lighten up, and the remaining 14% don’t care about either one of them enough to form an opinion.  Once again, on this one I went with Laura Ingraham crossing the line initially, though after hearing the full context of the comments I don’t think they were that bad.

March 18th- What Are Your Views on Abortion?

  • On this random issue, the vote was almost split exactly as the “Liberal or Conservative?” poll, with 74% siding with the more conservative “Pro-life” option, and the remaining 26% going with the generally liberal choice of “Pro-choice”.  Of course, I went “Pro-life” on this one.

March 19th- Do You Support Gay Marriage?

  • Looks like our readers are a little more moderate on this one:  61% voted against gay marriage, with the remaining 39% voting in favor of gay marriage.  Of course, I voted against.

March 20th- What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

  • We posted this before news of his apology, and 74% of those polled said that B.O. needed to apologize for his remarks, with the remaining 26% thinking that America needs to lighten up and laugh.  While I did vote that B.O. needed to apologize (glad he did do that), I generally side with America needing to lighten up.  For someone that campaigned on a platform of hope, change, and equality this was a low blow.

Come On, Barack! Well, at Least He’s a Liberal.

I suck like the Special Olympics, says Obama.

"I suck like the Special Olympics", says Obama.

Barack, Barack, Barack. What were you thinking? You can’t talk about how bad you were bowling and compare it to the Special Olympics; especially when you’re the president! I mean, I’m sure I’ve said worse, but you are the PRESIDENT. Geez. For those that missed this little debacle, while Barack was being a cool cat on Jay Leno (DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO GO ON A LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW???), Jay brought up his lack of bowling skill. Barack said it was getting a little better but still sucked, and then compared his horribleness to the Special Olympics. I’m sure there were many expletives swirling about in his brain after that little slip, but he should rest easy because he’ll be fine. Why, you ask? Because he’s a liberal, of course! The only people that are going to ever know about this are the viewers of FOX News, listeners of talk radio, the people watching Leno, and people that read conservative blogs online. That’s probably, at the most, 15 million people that will have any idea he said that. Being a liberal nearly makes you impervious to media scrutiny, so he’s got no need to worry.  Oh and don’t forget the White House released that memo that said he didn’t mean to degrade the Special Olympics.  Oh ok, no problem then!  Come on, that’s like calling your mom a stupid fat cow, but then saying you didn’t mean it in a mean way.  How dumb does the White House think we are?  (Oh wait, we did elect the guy. :)).  So rather than hiding behind a White House Press Release, I demand that you, Barack Obama, apologize to America for belittling the Special Olympics.  We’re waiting.

*Disclaimer*

Now I know that on numerous I’ve said America needs to toughen up and not get so offended about stuff, but I think this was over the line.  Making rude comments about physical disabilities is not in the realm of okayness.  And for those that like to e-mail me and say I’m just biased, I spoke out against Laura Ingraham’s comments on Meghan McCain’s weight earier this week.  No, I didn’t say as much about them, but those comments were not anywhere near as offensive.

Just imagine the outrage if Rush or Hannity or Coulter had said that! We’d never hear the end of it.  What do you think of Obama’s comments?  Were they completely ridiculous or do you think it was all in good humor?  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.

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!

Megan McCain Disses Ann Coulter

I have a feeling I know who'd win this rumble.

I have a feeling I know who'd win this rumble.

John McCain’s daughter Megan spoke against the wonderful Ann Coulter calling her “offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time”.  She also said that extremist like Ann were turning her off from the GOP, so they must be turning off more than just her.  She then said that she only appeals to radical conservatives, who she claims are dying off.  I’m sorry, but I thought the hard-core conservatives were having a comeback?  Maybe Megan doesn’t agree.  She’s a lovely young lady, but I imagine things like this are the reason she can’t get a date.  I think Megan needs to understand that every group has that iconic figurehead that’s “on the fringe”.  It’s just the way it goes, and there is no point wasting air complaining about it.  That point aside, why complain about Ann Coulter?  I mean, the girl’s got skills.  She can debate with the best of ’em and she’s brilliant.  I can think of several so-called “radical figureheads” to complain about other than Ann.  Sean Hannity, anyone?  And as for her comments that Ann Coulter is turning people  away from the party?  I find zero truth in that, but let’s juts say if it is true, the liberal nuts such as Keith Olbermann and everyone at the Daily Kos must be turning would-be liberals away in droves.  I think we would actually benefit from more people like Ann Coulter that say what they mean and mean what they say.  There’s no point in watering anything down, and what you hear from Coulter is about as strong and bold as you can get it.  More power to you Ann!  And for Megan:  Don’t take yourself too seriously, that’s America’s downfall.
