I’ll admit that I’m not entirely aware of what’s led to this, but apparently twitter is abuzz with BS tonight. Apparently, Meghan McCain posted a pic that showed a lot of bewb (hard for her not to, honestly, the gal is “gifted”), and folks started talking mean. You know, like the Internet is wont to do. Allahpundit got drawn into this, and she insults him flat out, and has in the past attacked his employer. This guy, who’s about the only right-leaning person who staunchly defends her and tries to think well of her.
Her, who has done her best to make a name for herself by attacking her vastly better betters, using derogatory terms and plenty of vulgarity. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. Hell, I do it all the time – it’s kinda my thing. The difference is, I expect the backlash. I don’t shy from it, and I sure as hell don’t bitch and whine when it comes. Unlike Meggie Mac.
Now, Jake Tapper (one of the few real journalists left, and one of the VERY few people who report on Washington that I respect) is taking people to task for attacks on Meghan McCain. One of the things he’s on about – maybe rightly, maybe not – is the cowardly nature of talking shit to people over the Internet. Even saying “I’d say it to her face” is pretty empty usually, because most don’t use their real names.
Now, if there have been threats made, then I’d be the first person to step up and put down the jack-ass making those threats. I don’t stand for that. Hate someone all you want, but baring REALLY serious stuff, threats are not acceptable. Flat out not cool. Just like I’d kill with my bare hands anyone who tried to kill or injure the President. There are limits.
I’m Scott Jacobs. This is my real first and last name. I don’t hide. I’m right here, take it or leave it. And I’m saying right now what I wish I could say to her face: Miss McCain, you have no class. You make your name by attacking people who have been established for years in the hopes that the controversy elevates you. You insult, you mock, you demean and you profane. You slap away a hand that has done nothing but do it’s best to try and shield you from your own ignorance by holding back those who would display their displeasure with you. You wouldn’t know about that because you care not one whit for anyone or anything besides yourself.
You have done nothing to help your supposed Party. I’m not even a member of the Republican party, and I’m embarrassed that you’re a Republican. You go after anyone with “street cred” in the hopes that being a raging, ignorant bitch gets you some of that respectability. It has not, it does not, it will not. You will forever remain in the eyes of many as nothing more than a spoiled, stuck up, rude, ungrateful bitch that has no idea just how big of a joke she is.
I am Scott Jacobs, and I would stand five foot back, hands behind me, and look you in the eyes (you know, that thing most guys don’t do, and which you count on to keep us XY’ers mollified) and say exactly that.
And then I would walk away, having wasted far more time on you than you were worth.
You used to be someone I thought was attractive. A shame that you had to prove the old saying “beauty is only skin deep”.
