Meghan McCain Takes High Road in Glenn Beck Body Image Battle (Sort of)

Meghan McCain, daughter of Senator John McCain, is taking the high road after Fox News' biggest blabbermouth, Glenn Beck, went on his radio show earlier this week and pretended to puke into a bucket when he saw McCain in a new skin-cancer PSA, in which she appears naked from the shoulders up.

On his radio show Wednesday, Beck acted as though he was sick to his stomach. He attributed his "illness" to seeing McCain in the PSA and pretended to barf in a trash can.


"Oh, I got something bad. Might be that Meghan McCain," he joked with co-hosts Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray. Between bouts of faux-puking, he added: "When I look at the picture, I think to myself, I get the point, put some extra clothes on."

Rather than bash Beck for his own bloated bod, McCain used her column in the Daily Beast to act like an adult.

"There really is no need to make something like my participation in a skin cancer PSA into a sexist rant about my weight and physical appearance, because I'm going to let you in on a little secret, Glenn: you are the only one who looks bad in this scenario, and at the end of the day, you have helped me generate publicity for my skin cancer PSA, a cause that I feel quite passionate about."

She did, however, take one shot at Beck's bulbous bod, sarcastically reminding him that "as a person who is known for his hot body, you must find it easy to judge the weight fluctuations of others, especially young women."

Zing!

Glenn Beck, like Rush Limbaugh, is simply an entertainer, much like Sarah Palin. Ms. McCain is correct that Beck's tirade simply added to her attempt to get the word out about protecting one's self against skin cancer (I can't spell melanoma). If the person watching Mr. Beck just keeps in mind that he is the same horse's ass as those spending time in the MCSO Command Corral, it suddenly all becomes relative.

No big deal, Meghan, You handled it well. I'm sure your Dad is proud of the way you are taking your lumps. He's had his share over the years.

 Well said T.C.I would certainly add that she displayed a great sense of professionalism(as an adult of course). Something we don't see so often, in the further right end of the politiKKKal realm and those who support the Shurf & cohorts. Good for her, for making Glenn Beck look way out of her league as a better person.

With all those folds of fat on Beck's pasty body, he should probably get checked for skin cancer considering the fact that he probably can't see under those folds himself.

I can understand why Meghan is doing these PSAs. Her father has had melanoma a number of times and that puts her at risk as well. If this raises awareness good for her.
