Meghan McCain, whom I affectionately call “The Lucky Sperm,” because cracking that egg is the only “accomplishment” her name didn’t get her, was the subject of some satire this week by Turns out Ms. McCain, the media’s favorite squish and relentless seeker of the spotlight, doesn’t like it when you point out she can’t write and isn’t particularly bright. Who’da thunk it?

McCain, author of the roundly panned and rightly mocked Dirty Sexy Politics, didn’t take kindly to a satire post written by “Totally Meghan McCain” on Rick Perry. Actually written by Leon Wolf, the post mocked Meghan’s dislike of Rick Perry with, shall we say, poetic use of language. Here is a sample of “Totally’s” take:

Firstly in the first place, some people had a question about my very obvious statement, “I don’t necessarily agree that Rick Perry is George Bush on crack, but he could definitely be described as George Bush 2.0.” The question, I have most often, been asked, is why I did not include literally anything in the piece to back up this claim or point out, the places where Perry and Bush are similar, the reason for that being simple. Hello? They are both from Texas. I guess I should apologize for, assuming that most people knew that already, but I guess they don’t. Well I am here to tell you in case you didn’t know: both George W. Bush and Rick Perry are from Texas. Now, in the entire time I have been paying attention to politics, there has only been one President of the United States elected from Texas. And if electing someone, from Texas was a winning strategy, then obviously, there would have been more.

Some ignorant jerk, clearly who doesn’t know about the young people, pointed out that George W. Bush 1.0 won, two elections, which is two more than my dad did. Let me just respond to that jerk by saying that George W. Bush only won those elections because he didn’t have to go against my dad either time. FACE!

It’s close to her writing style, as is any good satire, but it’s too well written to actually be her.
