Our favorite Republican Booze Heiress Meghan ‘Soylent Blonde’ McCain—the proud issue following Grandpa Walnuts getting his way during one of Cindypills missing weekends—has something to say about Aaron Schock (R-Lindsey Graham’s Closet):
“The rise and fall of Congressman Aaron Schock is — sadly, like so many before him — a clichéd tale of an individual going to Washington, publicly presenting himself as an outside reformer, and then ultimately flaming out amid scandal and embarrassment before his career ever realized its potential.” —Time
Gotta give Soylent props here: I never used flaming out. Heh. She also takes him to task for being a Millennial Cheeseball. If only he had been a royal booze kingdom heir, maybe he would not have been so easy to corrupt?
We are sad to announce that Soylent Blonde herself, Meghan McCain is out of a job at Pivot teevee: Her show, Takepart Live has been cancelled.
Pivot TV has canceled its signature nightly program, “TakePart Live.”
The show is hosted by Meghan McCain, Jacob Soboroff and Baratunde Thurston, and airs weeknights at 10 p.m. It will wind down over the next few weeks, with its final episode airing before the end of the year. Pivot is expected to try and find new roles for the hosts at the channel, though exactly what those roles may be remains unclear.
… One source familiar with the decision said that the show was canceled in part because “TakePart Live” was expensive to make, produced by Embassy Row Productions, which also produces programs like “Talking Dead” and “Watch What Happens live.” Ultimately, the cost of the show, combined with the comparatively low viewership Pivot saw (the channel was not rated by Nielsen, suggesting low viewership), led to its cancellation.
The show, I am told with a straight face, was designed to engage with the average millennial about current events. I suppose as long as your average millennial is a powerful senator’s daughter and heir to a significant booze fortune.
Regardless, we still love our Soylent Blonde and we continue to root for her as she brings her refreshing brand of youthful conservatism to the ever-declining and ossified Big Tent.
EMOTICON OF PRIVACY?!
You silly twatwaffle, MODICUM!
Some where out there is a real journalist who should have the opportunities our favorite booze heiress is squandering.
(And if you argue with me on the dolphin point, you are saying that SoyBlo is smarter than a dolphin, and that is empirically false and defames dolphins.)
MSNBC has hired SoyBlo as a political commentator.
I’m going to sit in silence in a dark room for a while, maybe do a little past-life regression therapy.
Good gravy! The NYTimes decided to interview famous entitled attention-Remora, Meghan McCain. SoyBlo’s interview, surprisingly, has more depth than her usual contributions from the Daily Beast:
INDISPENSABLE ITEM: My MacBook. It’s depressing. It’s like my baby. I named it Bambi. My iPhone is named Thumper. How sad am I?
INTERNET DATING? No. I would get slaughtered. My profile would be on Gawker in five seconds.
LAST MEAL: My father’s ribs. If not, I’d go for steak tartare, baked potato, Kraft macaroni and cheese and cookie dough.
So does that mean she gave birth to a computer and is an Electra-complex cannibal? So many questions.
Death of the Media
Andrew Sullivan announced today that his Daily Dish blog (or What I Did While Waiting for the Return of Saint Ronnie and Maggie Thatcher long-format essay) will be leaving The Atlantic and moving to Tina Brown properties, The Daily Beast and Newsweek.
I sometimes find Sullivan amusing, and I cop to reading his posts now and then. That said, I find his long-term memory loss for all things Movement Conservative, his role in the creation of the Beast that is destroying America, to be at best disingenuous. I don’t give hall passes to the guilty.
Anyway, Mr. Sullivan is now well-positioned to become the digital doppleganger of David Brooks, reasonable conservative, with a two-pronged media pitchfork. The only questions that remain is if Tina Brown will insist on celebrity gossip in his posts, guest appearances by dim-witted (but I think very pretty) Naivtée Meghan McCain or at least one Kardashian buttock per week.
Mr. Sullivan, being a gentleman, did not discuss terms.

I’m weirded out that any teacher would assign this. But of course, it could be the “What not to do” part of the poli sci curriculum.
(And in the meanwhile, I commit ritual Sepuku.)
