The Girl Power Unity of Fluke and McCain Spawns a Right Wing Meltdown
Hereâs something to feel good about for your late night snack. Last night, at a Nerd Prom after party, Meghan McCain and Sandra Fluke swapped stories about being attacked by sexist losers after expressing an opinion publicly.
Meghan tweeted out this gorgeous picture of the powerful pair:
Meghan added, âMy fav meeting of the night, the very brave and badass Sandra Fluke! #MSNBCafterpartyâ.
To which Ms Sandra replied, â.@McCainBlogette thanx 4 support/advice re: public attacks! We girls have 2 have each othersâ backs despite polit diffs. #MSNBCafterpartyâ
Meghan wrote back, â@SandraFluke Thereâs like ten women on the planet that know what being in the middle of a political media firestorm feels like. Any timeâ
How cool is this? Ah, thatâs just how we women like to roll. Everything is not a war, you know. We like to find common ground. Thatâs just one reason we think we need more of us in elected officeâŠ.
But I digress.
Meghan later had to defend herself from conservative accusations of actually treating a liberal like a human being. But not to worry, if there is one thing Meghan McCain is, itâs truly steely-spined unlike some pit bulls we all know.
Meghan told her conservative followers to chill.
Naturally, all of this sisterhood power got patriarchal puppet Michelle Malkin upset. She sounded like the perennial third wheel trying to hop on a ride of more relevant peeps, whining about conservatives needing air sickness bagsover the two âTwitter besties,â as if we all never left junior high.
Meghan knows these waters well. Hereâs just a few of the sexist attacks she earned from her side of the aisle for speaking the truth about âI am not a witchâ Christine OâDonnell:
Blogger Doug Powers kicked off the mud-slinging with a post on Michelle Malkinâs blog Sunday morning. He began his post with a photo of McCain that spurred controversy after she posted it on Twitter a year ago and commented, âDisregard the above photo. Iâm only putting it there to remind myself to check my tire pressure later this afternoon.â
Later that day, conservative blogger Dan Riehl on his blog Riehl World View referred to McCain as âMeggie âBig Macâ McCainâ and wrote that âthis self-indulgent set of mega-breasts doesnât belong anywhere near a TV studio commenting on anything.â
Jeff Poor, a staff writer for the Media Research Centerâs Business & Media Institute, rounded out the evening by re-tweeting a conservative bloggerâs comment that âI swear, if Meghan McCain gets any dumber sheâll be drooling on her boobsâ with the remark: âHaha.â
Malkin is probably really upset because deep down inside, she knows that Meghan McCain is the only force pulling the Republican Party to any semblance of sanity. Meghan has dedication to her chosen cause, and she refuses to act like a crazy person just to be accepted by the nuts whoâve hijacked her fatherâs party. Letâs face it, McCain doesnât need to act nasty to get press. Sheâs already famous, she has already proven herself as a political voice, and frankly, sheâs rather charming and likeable on camera.
Anything that disturbs Malkin has a high probability of being good for the planet, so I say donate an air sickness bag to a conservative in the name of sisterhood. She wonât know what hit her, because we all know that mature people run around hating on anyone who doesnât agree with them on like, everything!
Bravo to Meghan and Sandra for reminding everyone that women have needed, necessary and important skills and perspectives to bring to the table. Itâs not about being as good as a man; itâs about being fabulous because theyâre smart, outspoken women who know the importance of sisterhood. And yes, Michelle, sisterhood trumps politics and so does general humanity â or rather, it does for some people.
Bonding with our sisters is good for the soul. Just watch out for the pit bulls, they like to eat their own.
