Opinion: Oooh, Meghan McCain’s kinda touchy about her resume -- and got it wrong

Stipulation: Meghan McCain is a refreshing political personality to watch who is her own self. And might be trying to prove it a little too hard.

These days she’s doing some blogging over at the DailyBeast. But it seems somebody (apparently a fellow Beast part-timer) wrote somewhere that Ms. McCain has yet to accomplish much in her privileged life. Which prompted her to respond. And respond. And respond.


And respond.

Using her Twitter account, which limits users to 140-character messages, McCain produced a lengthy series of angry Tweets -- some using the #$%&!* word.

They detailed her numerous life activities starting with volunteer tutoring at 16 and helping receive flowers at a hospital desk and internships and moving up through writing a children’s book and founding ‘my multi-award-winning website, which is officially the first blog in history to document a presidential campaign.’ (Her father’s, of course.) has posted screen grabs of the Meghan missives right here and ID’d the target.

But, as leapt to point out, that claim isn’t quite exactly precisely true, since the Kerry-Edwards campaign had one five years ago, likely among others.
