Meghan McCain Defends Weight Against Critic

I don't agree with most of Meghan McCain's thoughts, but on this quote I agree with here 100%.

"There is no place for weight criticism in 2009."

She is totally within her right to defend her weight against critics. I believe even a 3 years old could find the flaws in her politic logic, without bringing in her appearance or weight into the discussion as a trump card of why we shouldn't listen her.

Debaters need to realize when you sink to attacking a persons looks it just makes your argument look weak.

  1. The whole, "lol you're fat" meme is a refuge for those incapable of actual ideas based debate.

    Ingram, a woman who works but opposes women working, can't quite grasp certain concepts--like basing political discussion on material evidence or logical frameworks of philosophy, so she calls Meghan McCain fat.

    Quite frankly, I think Ingram went out of her way to target McCain because she broke the first tenet of modern American Conservatism: never break ranks. McCain criticized the mudslinging and violent rhetoric using Ann Coulter to call for a more grounded political discussion among the conversatives/Repubican party. Something long overdue.

    But, in crazy Conservative Town, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter are keen, not the racist, sexist, homophobic, Christofaschist that they really are.

    Anyway, I will say that McCain is right, there's no place in political discussion to harp on weight or use any ad hominim attacks against an opponent, but McCain herself, on the View, took a jab at Ingram's age--which is also bullshit.

    So, if there's anything to learn here, its that Republicans will take any opportunities to be hypocrites.
