Yes, Yes, But What Did Meghan McCain Think?
The New York Daily News was embedded with Meghan McCain, who “will soon release a book about life as a Republican,” at the White House Correspondents Dinner, and reports that she stood “like an insolent child” until a friend could get a free ticket. She blanched at one of Wanda Sykes’ jokes, about her father being upset that he didn’t have a helicopter and her mother being able to buy one for him?
“I didn’t like the joke about my mom [Cindy],” the young McCain told us after the dinner. “Why talk about her at all? I (didn’t mind the jokes) about my dad, but leave my mom out of it. It really wasn’t in good taste.”
If McCain needs a job post-book tour, she really should be involved in the WHCD in some way. Celebrity entitlement syndrome, outrage at jokes that everyone forgets five minutes later — she’s got it down cold.
