That’s Probably Enough Meghan McCain for Now
Via Nick Sabloff, this is the sort of media moment that would slow down the schedule of an ordinary pundit. But Meghan McCain’s, err, “expertise,” has never been ordinary.
McCain makes the fairly standard argument that the president “blames” the previous administration too much; Paul Begala says the president doesn’t do it enough, and cites Ronald Reagan’s attacks on Jimmy Carter “for eight years.”
MCCAIN: You know, I wasn’t born yet, so I don’t know.
BEGALA: I wasn’t born during the French Revolution but I know about it.
MCCAIN: You clearly know everything, and I’m just the blonde sitting here!
Pretty embarrassing. McCain’s success as a pundit is not too mysterious — she did lots of media during the campaign, and befriended journalists, and she doesn’t apparently have much else to do.
