"So I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing..."

Uh. Okay.

garage mahal said...

She apologized for that? Crazy. This country is hung up on the stupidest things.

Synova said...

I find the defensiveness more remarkable than the photo.

Yup, cleavage... nothing shows.

I'm with garage on this one.

MadisonMan said...

I'm not sure what she is apologizing for.

Maguro said...

You think that's something, you shoulda seen her at Sturgis. Yowza!

rhhardin said...

Not my type.

SteveR said...

Hey if anyone's interested in breasts I can send you some really cool links. Another reason to not tweet.

Naked Surfer said...

If she passes out and her girlfriends abandon her to the hospital, I’ll know exactly what to look for.

Pogo said...

Look.
Don't look!
Look.
Don't look!

It's so hard to pretend to be Ozzie and Harriet's kid in a Weimar world.

ironrailsironweights said...

It's a nice rack, but of course I'm more focused on another part of a woman's body (hint: when I say I'm a bush lover, I'm not referring to horticulture or Presidential families).

EDH said...

Read backwards, she's holding something to do with Andy Warhol.

I guess Meghan McCain want's to be the new "It Girl."

Or, in this case, is she trying to be the It Girl via the tit, girl?

An It girl or It-girl is a charming, sexy young woman who receives intense media coverage unrelated or disproportional to personal achievements. The reign of an "It girl" is usually temporary; some of the rising It girls will either become fully-fledged celebrities or their popularity will fade...

Andy Warhol's muse, Edie Sedgwick, was dubbed the It Girl.

JohnAnnArbor said...

Don't people normally glance at pictures before posting them on-line? Unless she wanted the pneumatic look.

Penny said...

Oligonicella said...

So a woman in possession of what women possess is criticized for possessing them? Megan is not the idiot.

Chip Ahoy said...

I can't figure out what the fuss is about. I snap on a thick wide leather cock ring that forces my balls upward and to the front then put on a pair of worn tight-fitting 501 jeans that I wire-brushed the crotch area to bare fibers then position a camera with remote shutter activation directly in front of a stool where I sit spread legged presenting a straight on crotch shot to the camera lens with a mirror behind it so I can more accurately judge the angle with greater accuracy all the time. I usually discard the first few shots until I work out the lighting, then post the best ones on twitter and face book. Where these followers come from, I have no idea. Did I mention I'm very serious about politics?

That Meghan makes the pose appear so effortless and perfectly natural is stunning.

JohnAnnArbor said...

Chip going for the Titus award...

So a woman in possession of what women possess is criticized for possessing them?

That could be said if she had no top on at all. She's not being criticized for having breasts. She's being criticized for photo selection.

Andrea said...

It's a pretty bad picture. Her boobs look like someone's butt. In other words, it looks like a tacky, bizarre Photoshop. Why do people upload really bad photos of themselves? Don't they even give them a final look before clicking that "submit" button? Or is there something called "upload goggles"?

Kev said...

(the other kev)

She's a vanilla princess who wants desperately to be edgy.

Not that I'm complaining. The daddy issues alone make them easy lays.

Freeman Hunt said...

Hehehe @ Chip

Titus said...

She has nice tits.

If she is the future of the republican party I am joining!

AJ Lynch said...

That pic of Andy Warhol also resembles Rod Stewart.

wv = frican = free can free can Free Meghan's Cans!

AJ Lynch said...

Chip:

LOL.

And then it was even more LOL when you added the part about being serious about politics!

peter hoh said...

If Althouse is wondering what she can do to lure Simon back to the blog . . . .

Cedarford said...

Chip - great! Now Titus can advise you on the really sheer stuff you can wear so that others know if you have a cut or uncut "hog". This is apparantly very important if you party with Titus.

===============
Speaking of Titus, that reminds me...I went apple picking and came back with some green Macs. They were very tart and I liked that. My wife warned me I would really have some GI problems. I didn't the last time I had them, I told her. (true). This time I did! In spades. Explosive spatter. I could see apple skins that raced through me in the remains, Titus! Still green with some of that red Mac color when the pieces detonating out of my ass ended "skin side up". The rest was apple center white, slightly browned from passing through me.

rcocean said...

Did you know George M hates black people? Wonder why he's calling the people in the USA stupid. I think racism is pretty stupid.

Titus said...

Speaking of apple picking this season is fabulous!!!!!

Apples in New England are to die for.

Run don't walk to your nearest orchard this weekend, preferably in Stowe, Vermont. Thank you.

former law student said...

For years now, girls in their twenties -- especially the chubbettes -- have worn shirts that show off their cleavage. Walk down the clubbing strip in your town for verification, or stalk some social network site photo albums.

It's indeed no big deal.

Synova said...

"She's being criticized for photo selection."

But how serious is the criticism?

Cedarford said...

I had a Meghan McCain comment, but couldn't bear to add it to my last post.

My read...she's a smart girl with a nice bod. Think she needs to drop about 15 lbs, but pretty good looking.
And hopefully doesn't take after her somewhat incoherent, erratic, and high-tempered Dad...but her rich, involved in half a dozen major charities since she was in her early teens, very nice Mom. Who also happened to have been a smoking hot USC cheerleader.

Cindy McCain would have been a great 1st Lady. But not worth it, at the price of a John McCain Presidency.

c3 said...

15 minutes up yet?

Penny said...

So, Meghan. How's this "not thinking" working out for you?

Ohhhhhhh....

Nevermind then. ;)

Titus said...

Fags love Meghan fellow republicans. She is all about the "big tent".

You want us? Just love us a little more. We will be there. We make lots of money, hate government intrusion and most importantly have great bodies and look fab on a promo poster.

Win us over, I know you can do it!

We have lots of extra money to contribute to your efforts.

Now do it republicans. We are counting on you.

Titus said...

I believe we need to see more tits on this site.

I want bustline's/nipples, and corona of nipples here.

I want to see them in fabulous blouses, tight sweaters, sweaty tankeys and tight t's.

Now punch it Marge.

Show us some tits.

Less politics and more tits.

Titus said...

I would enjoy seeing more Synova, Freeman Hunt and Darcy Breasts/

I want patriotic, tough on terror republican breasts in my face and I want them now!!!!!!

Who is with me?

Chip Ahoy said...

I puffed up my buns just so, made sure the crack between them was perfect, the color well-balanced and the light played off their roundness. Once I was satisfied with the angle, I shot this series of photos and uploaded them online.

Geoff Matthews said...

Megan:

LOOK AT ME!!

(sorry)

LOOK AT ME!!

Synova said...

Making it personal is what bothers people, Titus.

And anyway... you'll have to make do with Meagan McCain.

former law student said...

Making it personal is what bothers people, Titus.

Well, I don't think impersonal would work either. Imagine an anonymous photo gallery for Titus's amusement -- commenters would send in for example torso pics in wet T-shirts or something. Participation would be nil.

Indeed, "The Boobs of Althouse" would also be considered misleading: People would expect to see my pic.

blake said...

Hey, women dress like that all the time when they're lounging around the house, waiting for the delivery boy or cable guy.

Else what are all those movies based on?

rcocean said...

If her name was Megan Paul or Meghan Thompson no one would give a damn.

The attention given to John McCain and his oddball family is truly amazing. I read somewhere McCain been on the Sunday Talk shows 20 times in the lest 10 months.

Thank God we were spared First Daughter Meghan McCain. Beck was right. However bad Obama is, McCain would have been worse.

peter hoh said...

Chip, your buns look scrum-diddley-umptious.

Fred4Pres said...

boobs. Some people have them. Some people are them.

Alex said...

She looks like she's lost some weight. Anyways that picture is HAWT. I'd do her.

Alex said...

FLS - what do you have against chubbettes? I don't mind a little chubb as it makes for more cushin' for the pushin'. Skinny anorexic girls are just awful.

Revenant said...

It is a good looking picture. Why people would whine about it is beyond me.

Fred4Pres said...

The future of television?

Slow Joe said...

Meghan apologized for the photo. Thus, she isn't well defended by people saying it's no big deal. It was a mistake from her point of view, apparently. Or she doesn't take her word seriously.

I don't care about some slut showing off her body, even if it's not the ideal Ralph Lauren model. I just think it's poor taste to act outraged, as Mccain did, to the banal observation that she was posting a picture of her breasts for attention.

If you don't understand she did that, then I have a nice bridge to sell you. Then again, I never thought Althouse was wrong about that little Clinton flunky posing girl, either.

Women can push the envelope and be proud of their sexuality or body... but when you act outraged, as though you would never do such a thing, you are reestablishing the very social mores you tried to take credit for overcoming.

Penny said...

Nice bun shot, Chip!

But I need to ask. You're not a McCain are you?

reader_iam said...

However bad Obama is, McCain would have been worse.

This has become received wisdom, it seems. But how can we know? How do people know that? I understand that there are people who find that a comforting thought. Why and how they do is the more interesting question to me.

reader_iam said...

I recently, in IRL, had someone make such an impassioned argument in support of that position that I had no choice but to ask the obvious question: "Well, then, why didn't YOU vote for Barack Obama last November?"

Slow Joe said...

Mccain would have spent this much money? How? The congress would still be controlled by dems. Corruption would have had at least some form of check and balance.

And what about Honduras and Iran and Russia? I think Mccain would have handled each better... I know he would have handled Honduras better. And of course, the really big difference is Afghanistan.

Mccain's ego is massive, but he was right on Lebanon, and he was right about Iraq. He knows where to go to get reasonable advise about that kind of stuff.

Domestically, yeah, he would have been a mess. I doubt he'd have spent even half as much money, though.

ricpic said...

She's doing her part being part of our unhappy frenetic age.

Methadras said...

Oh noes!!! A cleavage shot. How myspace. The only thing missing was the puckered lips along with the shocker.

Jason (the commenter) said...

So, she posted a sexy picture of herself and then apologized a lot so people would notice.

Matthew said...

C'mon, cut her some slack. After all, isn't 25 is the new 12 or something?

If Meghan chooses to act like a teenaged girl, that's her business. The picture is just yet another indication of her teenaged angst; her own insistance that it really sucks to be her.

As I recall, it wasn't long after her father lost to a man with a resume so thin you wouldn't hire him to be night manager at the local Taco Bell, that Meghan was whining that she never got invited to the really cool parties because people believed her father to be a fire-breathing conservative (as if!), and that the really cute guys only wanted to meet her so they could meet her father.

So, to rebel and show us all that she's her own person, and so totally cool and stuff, she takes a job with Tina Brown advocating gay this-that-and-the-other as a new republican platform and posting her boobs on Twitter like most 14 year old girls who wear too much eyeliner do.

It's painful watching them grow up, sometimes, isn't it?

Chase said...

Perhaps it would be more scandalous if, instead of only having nice looking cleavage, Meghan actually had a good-looking face.

Chris Althouse Cohen said...

56 comments and not one of them says "let's take a closer look at those breasts" or makes any reference along those lines? Is it just too obvious to even say?

Mr. Forward said...

Hey boy, look over there. Balloons!

MadisonMan said...

Chris: Yes.

John said...

McCain is a fat girl in waiting. But she does, like many future fat girls, have a nice set of tits.

I am with Garage to on this. It is not like she threw off all her clothes or something. She is a decent looking young woman with great skin and nice boobs. She should enjoy having her assets while they last.

traditionalguy said...

She seems to want to make a claim that she is under attack from the vast prude wing conspiracy of those red neck conservatives. Its like watching a WWF faked wrestling show complete with overdrawn villains to be hollered at for a brief fantasy game. Sorry, Meghan. Fantasy like WWF wrestling is BORING.

Gray said...

What total nonsense. Apologizing for being a curvy woman? Have right wingers become so puritan that Meghan McCain is in danger of becoming teared and feathered for that rather harmless picture? It's ridiculous.

Personally, I love that picture, but only becuase Meghan seems to like Andy Warhol, not because of her cleavage, of course!
:D

Salamandyr said...

Ace of Spades nailed it.

Dem's hate Meghan because she claims to be Republican.

Republican's hate Meghan because she's really a Democrat.

A fair number of mouthbreather's troll the internet for pictures of attractive women that they can claim don't measure up to their exacting standards.

And others find sexualized photos to be inappropriate for people who want to be taken seriously.

You post a picture of yourself in low cut top, push up bra, and your hair draped just so you're going to get negative comments from one, two, or all of the above groups. Meghan, your problem isn't that you posted the photo, it's that you are dismayed at the completely predictable reaction.

al said...

I thought it was some kind of promo for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Winner: Least Subtle Hint of All Time

knox said...

Anyway, with Meghan, not surprising. A good percentage of young women who present a respectable public image eventually feel the need to er, let it all hang out in some way.

Sort of like that girl who played Sabrina the Teenage Witch posing for Maxim, and the topless pics of the High School Musical girl being *accidentally* leaked.

Sad, but as others have said, why is Meghan now apologizing? She's not exactly a role model for little girls or anything. Stupid.

Fred4Pres said...

Off topic, but it is a fun picture of something Ann would probably like to comment on but my guess not be caught dead wearing.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Several comments from someone who is similarly endowed.

1. When you are taking a picture of yourself and holding something out in front of yourself, meaning both arms extended front and slightly low centered.....the 'girls' have nowhere to go but up and center even more than they already are due to a well constructed and highly engineered bra. Physics.

This 'configuration' is why golfing is a problem for some women.


2. There is no way she didn't realize how the photo looked, cleavage wise. I probably would have thought twice about posting it...but hey...her choice.

3. She didn't care because, she is proud of the 'girls'

4. She should not have apologized because there was nothing obscene or out of the ordinary about the photo.

5. People really are becoming silly about politics and everything else.

Breasst said...

There's nothing inappropriate about the breasts in question.

They are displayed to their best advantage!

Jason said...

Ugh!

I am done with apple picking now.

Oligonicella said...

JohnAnnArbor --

"That could be said if she had no top on at all. She's not being criticized for having breasts. She's being criticized for photo selection."

And could you explain, exactly, what is wrong/bad about the photo?

That's what I was thinking. I don't think this is a big deal. She's not naked. Whatever.

John said...

You don't have a twitter page with photos or anything DBQ? Just asking. ;-)

traditionalguy said...

Maybe Miss McCain is a Bob Dylan fan who wants to help make the country grow. She is riding her daddy's horse claiming to be a normal and raunchy person who is suffering in the sexually repressed Church of Republicans. It is all a false meme. If that is all she has, then her usefulness is like that of the CNN commenter who was a Republican strategist 30 years ago, but has not seen a good Republican idea since then that is not in his opinion a political charade. Both he and Meaghan are the real charades these days.

holdfast said...

What's bad is that they look stretched, like they are going to pop a vein. What's lame is that Meggie Mac wants to be taken seriously for her views on politics, but is acting like a C-List Celeb. There's noting immoral or even particularly salacious here; rather it is her massive ego and sense of entitlement that is on display (those two being the true family jewels).

I also think she may be lying on her back to make them spill up that way.

Andrea said...

And could you explain, exactly, what is wrong/bad about the photo?

The way she's photographed them they look like buttocks. I guess if you're an ass-man (or -woman; I don't judge) that's okay. I find it a little disconcerting.

Jeez that includes about everyone who comments for the MSM. Heh.

$9,000,000,000 Write Off said...

"Uh. Ok." reads more vacuous than anything McCain wrote.

rcocean said...

"And what about Honduras and Iran and Russia?"

And what about them? I guess if you can't sleep at night because of the situation in Hondurous, or worry about Russian-Uzbekistan relations, or whether we're "appeasing" Lichtenstein. then yeah McCain is your guy.

President McCain probably would have have started a war with Iran, a new Cold war with Russia, and increased the military budget by 100 percent.

Sorry, I'm glad the unstable, belligerent, war-monger didn't get elected.

Is it just too obvious to point out that it was previously stated that "no one in our family can ever say anything obvious"?

Meade said...

"Now, the Boy in the Balloon has been downgraded to the Boy in the Box. I don't really know what that portends for Meghan's breasts."

Especially now that the boy has been downgraded to the Boy in the Barf Bucket.

TMink said...

There is nothing wrong per se with the photo of her breasts bulging out of the top of her shirt.

To be confused or surprised by the reactions is either a sign of her beling clueless, dumb, or disingenuous.

That is the fuss. And there are some people that think it is unladylike to post photographs of yourself that will make half the world think of your tits. These folks believe that sex and sexuality is a private matter and it behoves us all to call attention to our accomplishments rather than our assets.

MamaM said...

I'm still not clear as to what SHE found "fun" about the picture, especially if what she was wearing wasn't part of her consideration.

Incongruent Communication is "a communication pattern in which the sender gives conflicting messages on verbal and nonverbal levels and the listener does not know which message to accept"

Um. You don't seem to understand the concept of gravity.

:-D

holdfast said...

"Um. You don't seem to understand the concept of gravity.

Probably not - but I think she must then be using Katie Price's bra.

careen said...

What is that weird bump on the top of her boob? Is that because she's chubby? I've only ever seen that with huge implants - Anna Nicole used to get that uniboob thing going on. And I'm pretty sure Meghans are real.

Largo said...

You made me laugh, Cedarford! :)

And I did not say it yet, but welcome back, Titus!
