Epic Rebuttal Fail

2 comments March 12th, 2009at 10:32pm Posted by Eli

So… Meghan McCain laments that the Republican Party’s embrace of hate and mean-spiritedness as embodied by Ann Coulter (I wonder why not Rush?) is turning off potential converts, and Laura Ingraham responds by calling her fat:

In a mocking faux-Valley Girl voice, Ingraham made fun of McCain’s body, joking that she didn’t get a “role in the Real World” because “they don’t like plus-sized models”:

MCCAIN (on MSNBC): And I think there’s an extreme on both parties and I hate extreme. I don’t understand. I have friends that are the most radically conservative and radically liberal people possibly ever and we all get along. We can find a middle ground.

INGRAHAM (mocking): Ok, I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the Real World, but then I realized that, well, they don’t like plus-sized models. They only like the women who look a certain way. And on this 50th anniversary of Barbie, I really have something to say.

Well played, Laura Ingraham.  Well played.

    OK, with the slight exception that I called it for the wrong emaciated ‘constitutional scholar’ in a miniskirt, I think it’s fair to say I called this one.

    Yes, I believe you did.

    No-one ever went broke overestimating the tone-deaf meanness of the conservative movement.
