Meghan McCain's Breasts Launch 1,000 Ships
Jake Tapper and Allahpundit get in an awkward spat over Meghan McCain's cleavage
On Wednesday, ABC's Chief White House correspondent Jake Tapper and conservative blogger Allahpundit clashed over the most salient issue of the day. What issue, you ask? Afghanistan? Health care reform? Nay: Meghan McCain's bountiful bosom.
It all started when Sen. John McCain's daughter posted a Twitter photo of herself wearing a low-cut tank top. In no time, Ms. McCain's tens of thousands of followers began ranting and raving. Many of them began hurling insults, to which she responded: "When I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a 'slut', I can't even tell you how hurt I am." But the epithets kept coming and McCain threatened to delete her Twitter account. Enter Jake Tapper with the words of comfort:
@McCainBlogette this can really be a place of bile, but you should know however rude these folks are theyre a vast minority...and theyre attacking you largely bc it's the only way they can feel good about themselves. like mean 9-year-olds.
But Tapper's innocuous consolation struck a nerve with conservative blogger Allahpundit, who felt Tapper was criticizing him. Allahpundit responded:
Wow, even Tapper's dumping on me now. Any other friends want to step up and take a shot?"
Rushing to put out the fire, Tapper responded:
@allahpundit am NOT dumping on you. am saying those who personally attack her should step off."
Then Allahpundit attempted to vindicate himself:
@jaketapper I've always said she's beautiful. Would never make fun of her looks, esp. given my own.
Showing signs of irritation, Tapper responded:
@allahpundit dude, not talking about you.
Allahpundit finally cooled down:
Dude, it's totally time for a beer summit. Me, Meggie, Tapper, and Obama. Rose Garden. Bottle of Jack is fine in lieu of beer.
Ending on a positive note, Tapper chuckled:
@allahpundit i'll bring the soy sauce
