Girl fight alert! It's Meghan McCain v. Laura Ingraham time--and I'm taking bets.
Background: as you all know, Michele Bachmann delivered an unofficial GOP response to the president's SOTU. Watch it here. Then media pundits, being the petty little gremlins that they are, decided to focus their coverage of Bachmann's address on the direction her eyes were looking in as she delivered the speech, rather than the substance of what she was saying. "Crazy eyes" is how Gawker described Bachmann.
But one pundit, if we're going to call her that, took it further. Meghan McCain, with no small amount of sass, told Lawrence O'Donnell:
Bachmann, in my opinion, is no better than a poor man's Sarah Palin....CNN should be ashamed of themselves for airing this. It is one [indecipherable] woman who couldn't even look into the camera directly.
Now, Laura Ingraham, fiery as always, was not going to let that slide. Speaking on Fox News last night, she told Bill O'Reilly, "Meghan McCain: maybe she's a poor man's Ron Reagan." Zing!
Ok, Meghan. Do you think that anyone would be talking to you if you weren’t kind of cute and you weren’t the daughter of John McCain? Or do you just think that they would just think that you were just another Valley Girl gone awry?
Ingraham also made fun of McCain's weight, to which McCain responded by writing a column titled "Quit Talking About My Weight, Laura Ingraham."
Instead of intellectually debating our ideological differences about the future of the Republican Party, Ingraham resorted to making fun of my age and weight
What will come next in the Ingraham v. McCain saga? I don't know, but where's Ann Coulter when you need her?
