It starts with loving guns more than you love other people

I am doing the world a disservice by paying any attention to Meghan McCain, America’s foremost faildaughter and the kind of lead-brained opportunist who’s cashing in on the troll economy while pretending to be completely unaware of such practices. But ABC pays McCain nearly a million bucks a year to sit stage right on The View and serve as a now-mandatory wingnut counterbalance to other hosts who believe in things like, oh, I dunno, common sense. They want her to draw eyeballs by maximizing her wanton jackassery, and it works. It’s effective, and you could argue that it’s potentially fatal.
