P.J. Gladnick is one of the Heathers at NewsBusters, hurling bile and snark at any right-winger deemed to have committed the offense of thinking for themselves and straying from conservative dogma. Gladnick's latest target is Meghan McCain, and the Heathers' favorite crime is invoked in Gladnick's April 18 post:
One has to hand it to Meghan McCain. She has certainly found the perfect shtick for extending herself beyond her allotted 15 minutes of fame. And the method Meghan has discovered is to slam conservative Republicans. That is her meal ticket to getting invites on cable news shows such as Larry King and, "OMG," she is also going to be guest co-host of The View for a couple of days this week. Think any of these invitations would have materialized had Meghan urged Republicans to become more conservative? If that were to happen all those TV appearances plus her new book deal would dry up more quickly than a drop of water in Death Valley.
Jealousy much? Seems like Gladnick would like McCain's TV face time.
Gladnick goes on to complain that McCain "Meghan also indulged in the almost obligatory slams against Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh," seemingly oblivious to any reason such criticism is deserved (or maybe Gladnick is sticking to his MRC overlords' doctrine of Coulter and Limbaugh as They Who Must Not Be Criticized.
Gladnick then bashes McCain for purportedly failing to acknowledge the anti-Obama tea parties, adding, "Of course, any positive response from Meghan to the tea parties would jeopardize her self-promotion tour in the MSM which is why there has been no response from her."
Yep, Gladnick is totally jealous of McCain. Like, totally.
