Topic: Media Research Center
The Media Research Center loves to Heather anyone deemed insufficiently adherent to the right-wing party line, and they've found their latest victim in Meghan McCain.
This time the perpetrator is MRC Business & Media Institute staff writer Jeff Poor, who re-tweeted a message by another conservative stating, "I swear, if Meghan McCain gets any dumber she'll be drooling on her boobs." Poor added: "Haha."
(This, interestingly, is relatively mild compared to some of his fellow right-wingers' sexist attacks against her.)
What did McCain do to engender such hostility? She appeared on ABC's "This Week" and said that Christine O'Donnell is "seen as a nutjob" who is "making a mockery of running for public office." That's pretty much it.
The MRC's Brent Baker, meanwhile, avoided direct Heathering, instead complaining that a later ABC News report mentioning McCain's appearance didn't express "angst" that McCain was "insulting Christine O’Donnell."
UPDATE: The MRC's chief Heatherer, Tim Graham, tweets a reference to "Meghan 'Bratz' McCain." Really, Tim?
