Opinion: Meghan McCain exposes her cup size on Twitter -- maybe Republicans really are out of ideas

Meghan McCain, the daughter of former Republican presidential candidate John McCain, caused a stir on her Twitter page Wednesday night by showing a photo of her that can only be described as, well, titillating.

For her part, the 24-year-old McCain seemed surprised at the furor caused by the voluptuous tank-top display. Maybe she didn’t get enough attention for her support of gay marriage. Anyway, when conservatives complained, she threatened to quit Twitter. Or, as she put it, ‘I’m getting the ... off twitter.’


‘When I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, ' she explained. ‘I had no idea this makes me a ‘slut.’ I can’t even tell you how hurt I am.’

If she’s hurt by the reaction, you can only imagine how her parents feel.

Later, she apologized.

But, as one commenter suggested, perhaps the would-be presidential daughter could ‘put a pink bow over this photo and call it a tribute to breast cancer awareness month.’
