Pot ... Kettle

God-hating, anti-Catholic, "squshy on abortion" RINO wants to know why conservatives "loathe" the shallow, dumb-blonde RINO offspring of the media-whore RINO who lost the race for the Presidency last year. Gee, I wonder why:
... [It's] news when the daughter of the guy who made Joe [the Plumber] famous [ED.: Really? McCain made Joe the Plumber famous? And here I thought it was Obama's "spread the wealth" answer to Joe's question that made Joe famous.] drops the bomb on him. Even so, isn’t she right? Just this one time? [ED.: Nope! At least not for the reasons she suggests.]
Yet even as the balance begins to shift, the old guard is still yapping in the foreground. Shortly before McCain sat for this interview, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, gave an interview to Christianity Today in which he complained about “queers” and declared, “I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.” Unprompted, McCain rails against the man her father’s presidential campaign touted as an American everyman and made a showpiece in the weeks before the election. “Joe the Plumber — you can quote me — is a dumbass. He should stick to plumbing.” [ED.: Good God, woman! Do you have any self-awareness at all? Have you ever even held down a job? A real job, not some gig your daddy got you or that you've been given because you like to crap all over conservatives. Perhaps you ought to stick to what you know (shopping, perhaps?) rather than trying to pass yourself off as anything more than the political equivalent of Paris Hilton. Talk about a "dumbass"! Apart from that pathetic milquetoast at HotAir, no one takes you seriously.]
If you missed his full interview with Christianity Today in May, you’ll find it here. Seriously: Gay adoption is practically mainstream these days and presumably welcome by conservatives as an alternative to abortion [ED.: Really? "Seriously ... practically mainstream"? Maybe that's considered "mainstream" among the elitists with whom you're hanging out, but it's not even close among the vast majority of the great unwashed ... i.e. most of the people in this country. And besides, are those the only choices? "Well, we can either kill the kids or adopt them out to same-sex couples." What, there aren't heterosexual couples literally waiting in line to adopt those kids who might otherwise be aborted? That unsubstantiated statement ... "seriously ... practically mainstream" ... is one of the stupidest, not to mention most UNCONSERVATIVE loads of BS I've ever read on a supposedly "conservative" blog.] — and yet JTP thinks gays are uniformly unfit to be around children? That’s not dumbass? ... [ED.: See above. Unlike you, most of us are more concerned about the best interests of children rather than impressing our friends at cocktail parties with our "enlightened" way of thinking. This commenter nails it: "Anyone who thinks a child does not deserve a mother and a father is a dumbass."]

Exit question I’m going to regret: Er, why exactly do so many of you guys seem to loathe Meggie Mac, who’s pro-life [ED.: Doubtful.], pro-gun [ED.: Again, I'm not buying it.], Christian [ED.: Seriously? How do you mean this? That she practices her faith? And, even so, how does this fact, alone, make her acceptable to conservatives? I mean, Obama is a Christian, too. So is John Kerry, for whom "Meggie Mac" voted in 2004, I might add. Practically the whole damn country is "Christian". What's your point? I suppose to "brights" we all look and think alike, huh?], and hawkish [ED.: And here we have it ... "hawkish" allegedly makes one who is otherwise contemptible to conservatives suddenly acceptable. Wasn't this the argument that folks like this were pushing with regard to Giuliani's presidential bid back in 2007-08? And besides, there is nothing particularly conservative about "hawkishness", regardless of what RINOs like this guy and David Frum have to say. We've had enough of this neocon nonsense.], while you tolerate an atheist who’s squishy on abortion like me? [ED.: As you can tell from the foregoing, I don't "tolerate" you at all. In fact, were it not for Ed Morrissey, I doubt I'd even read your blog. The fact that you're "squishy" on the killing of the most innocent is only the worst of your shortcomings.] Is it because she spends most of her time bashing the GOP on gay marriage instead of rubbing The One’s face in crap? [ED.: Ya think?] I’m puzzled. [ED.: Puzzled? Thick is more like it. You obviously don't understand what makes conservatives, especially social conservatives, tick.]
(emphasis and editorial commentary added)

As for the GOP-Johnny-come-lately, Kerry voting, narcissistically boorish trust-fund pundit, Ms. McCain, this commenter at HotAir said it best:
Meghan McCain calling anyone a “dumbass” is like Obama criticizing someone’s bowling skills.

And that she feels she actually has the gravitas to say “and you can quote me on that” only makes it worse.

Wow, Jay, what do you really think?

That was about the most enjoyable post I've read in a while. Sometimes we need to push back and that was one heck of a shove back at the squishy (in his own words) crowd. To some of them the only problem the Republican party has is the few who actually have firm beliefs. While Obama is doing poorly (okay, okay big understatement), I almost wonder if we dodged a bullet with McCain's loss. To try to be popular he'd have likely gone hard left after being elected.

Some things just need sayin'.

Apparently, she does have the gravitas to say "and you can quote me on that" because it has gotten people worked up. I have wondered for a long time why people get so worked up over this kind of stuff. Ignore her and she will go away. Get all fired up and you give her credibility. It really is that simple.

You uncharitably criticize someone for being a "media-whore," yet you give her more attention, which is exactly what you are criticizing her for desiring. Why not just ignore her and move on?

Someone needs to go back to school and learn a thing or two about reading comprehension.

First, my post is more than anything a criticism of HotAir for giving Ms. McCain more attention than she deserves. The blogger asked a question; I answered it.

Second, I "uncharitably" referred to Ms. McCain's father as a "media whore", NOT Ms. McCain herself. (Had I been referring to Ms. McCain, and had I really been trying to be "uncharitable", I might have said a lot worse.) At any rate, you might want to pay closer attention next time.

Finally, since when is "getting people worked up" by attacking their values over and over again a sign of "gravitas"? Please. Try again.

I'll admit that I misread the initial sentence, but hey that happens. Perhaps you have never misread something, but I have a feeling that most people have at some point in their life. My bad.

I still think the post was uncharitable post filled with unnecessary name calling whether it is "media-whore" or "dumb-blonde." Precisely what does that add to the post other than the tone of someone who is having a fit?

You are giving McCain credibility by caring what she has to say. Yeah, she is attacking your values, but why do you feel the need to respond to her? When someone that I find completely irrelevant starts spouting against something I support, I find it better to ignore them. If they begin to feel like they are screaming into deaf ears, they will eventually get tired and go away. Calling them out only makes them feel important. That is my only point.

If you do respond to them, point out why they are wrong. You don't need to try to discredit them by making harsh judgments like suggesting that Meghan McCain is nothing more than the daughter of a rich person who cannot do anything for herself. What basis do you have for those sorts of accusations and what is exactly is the point of bringing something like that up?
