Meghan McCain and the Triumphant Return of the Tone Police

They live on cable teevee
The tone police
They're paid to shush and decree
The tone police
They're coming to denounce me
Oh no...

Given that Meghan McCain's daddy is notorious for swearing like a sailor on a three-day bender when the world does not go his way (from HuffPo)...
Report: McCain’s Profane Tirade At His Wife

John McCain’s temper is well documented. He’s called opponents and colleagues “shitheads,” “assholes” and in at least one case “a fucking jerk.”...

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.
And given that Meghan McCain's new hubby built his career out of plagiarising, gossip-mongering and slandering Liberals (from WaPo)...
White House complains about CBS News blog post saying that possible Supreme Court nominee is gay

The White House ripped CBS News on Thursday for publishing an online column by a blogger who made assertions about the sexual orientation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, widely viewed as a leading candidate for the Supreme Court.

Ben Domenech, a former Bush administration aide and Republican Senate staffer, wrote that President Obama would "please" much of his base by picking the "first openly gay justice." An administration official, who asked not to be identified discussing personal matters, said Kagan is not a lesbian.

CBS initially refused to pull the posting, prompting Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy, to say: "The fact that they've chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010." She said the network was giving a platform to a blogger "with a history of plagiarism" who was "applying old stereotypes to single women with successful careers."

CBS executives at first defended the column, noting that it appeared in an opinion section that contains contributions from blogs and publications on the left and right.

Dan Farber, editor in chief of CBSNews.com, said that Domenech's column "just got through our filters" and that if his staff had seen "a controversial statement like that, we'd want to get more evidence of its accuracy" before publishing it. "But once it is out there," Farber said, "the better approach is just to address it head-on rather than trying to sweep it under the rug."

He changed his mind about yanking the column after receiving an e-mail from Domenech, which the blogger also sent to The Washington Post. Farber said in a statement that "after looking at the facts we determined that it was nothing but pure and irresponsible speculation on the blogger's part."...

When it comes to trying to run the whole finger-wagging Republican moralizing schtick about how the tone of those #NeverAgain kids is so teddibly, teddibly unproductive --
‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain lashes out at Parkland student David Hogg for using profanity to attack the NRA

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg won’t back down in his crusade for sensible gun laws and safe schools so that what happened to him in Parkland, Florida, never happens to anyone else.

While Hogg has explained that the vast majority of members of the National Rifle Association agree there should be better safety training, background checks and other regulations, McCain claimed his rhetoric was too divisive.

“I wish we could have it where the rhetoric isn’t that any of us could have blood splattered on our faces and your life perspective wouldn’t be changed,” McCain said, challenging the youth who faced the gunman. “I don’t think it’s productive.”...
-- Meghan McCain should maybe shut the fuck up.

This entitled legacy silver spoon got-there-because-of-daddy Trustafarian! This! I "should" listen to This?? Why?

Naturally the culture/tone/highmindedness "police" are using their go-to PlayBook when there's absolutely nowhere else to go in order to defend the indefensible.

So these children who witnessed their friends being slaughtered, some getting their pals' blood spattered all over them, while living terrorized moments wondering if they'd be next?? Yes, these children had better learn real quick to talk pretty so that entitled worthless nasty shitheads like Megan McCain isn't "offended" or something.

Go fuck yourself, Megan. Ya like my TONE there? Can I be any clearer about how I feel about you and your ilk? Shitholes, one and all.

Manner police
Arrest this man
He talks of guns
His friends were bathed in blood
He's an unarmed teenager

Manner police
Arrest this girl
Her shaved-head hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have 'shopped her picture

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with Repubs

The right is losing on this issue and it shows when rich white trolls like Meghan hypocritically clutch their pearls over profanity. These kids are very smart, articulate and are fed up with faux niceties thrown around by morally bankrupt politicians like Meghan's dad who's been on the NRA take for decades. David Hogg and his fellow survivors have every right to use profanity to make a point about the NRA and how its bought politicians are accessories to the murder of innocent americans.

Meghan, for her part, always says something incredibly tone-deaf and stupid. It's the only reason why she, like Frothy Mixture Santorum continue to have jobs within our worthless media b/c of need for "balance."

The Parkland kids spoke of using their privilege to advance their message and the message of those who lacked said privilege.
Meghan McCain has a lot of privilege.
Not so much self-awareness, but privilege out the wazoo.
Whose message is she using it to help advance?
