Blonde Jokes

From Clarence Page at the Chicago Tribune:

Call it the Battle of the Conservative Blondes.

Let other candidates’ kids shy away from the spotlight and wuss out of political scuffles. Megan McCain won’t back down.
There was Sen. John McCain’s blogging daughter on St. Patty’s Day, fresh from a verbal throw-down with conservative insult-wench Ann Coulter and responding with cool poise on “The View” to a snarky attack from conservative radio show insult-puppy Laura Ingraham.

Original movie posters

[McCain] made her way quickly into the headlines with a column that bemoaned how helping your dad run for president works like reverse-Viagra on your love life.


Soon she dropped a second bombshell titled “My Beef with Ann Coulter”:
“Coulter could be the poster woman for the most extreme side of the Republican Party. And in some ways I could be the poster woman for the opposite. I consider myself a progressive Republican, but here is what I don’t get about Coulter: Is she for real or not? Are some of her statements just gimmicks to gain publicity for her books or does she actually believe the things she says? Does she really believe all Jewish people should be “perfected” and become Christians? And what was she thinking when she said Hillary Clinton was more conservative than my father during the last election? If you truly have the GOP’s best interests at heart, how can you possibly justify telling an audience of millions that a Democrat would be a better leader than the Republican presidential candidate?”

I wonder if little Meggie would have been so riled up if Coultergeist had not insulted Daddy Underpants. Would all those statements about Jews have been so egregious had Coultergeist heartily endorsed Daddy Underpants?

She asked Coulter for a response to her column, McCain writes. Coulter didn’t respond, but Ingraham did.
Ingraham reacted by pronouncing the young McCain on-air to be “a valley girl gone awry” and a reject from a TV reality show because “they don’t like plus-sized models.”
Oh, no, she dih-Int!
Well, young Megan had a megaphone, too, and knows how to use it– in a third feisty essay, this time on the “politics of size”:


And Megan had another platform, too. She turned up on The View and laid into Ingraham’s cheap throw-down of the body-weight card.
“What do young women think when I speak my mind about politics and I want to have a political discussion about the ideological future of the Republican Party, and the answer is, ‘She’s fat, she shouldn’t have an opinion’,” McCain asked. “What kind of message are we sending young women?”


“It infuriates me,” she said. “I’m a political writer on a blog, and all of a sudden I’m too fat to write?”


In her search for appropriate words, McCain turned to that great sage of daytime television Tyra Banks and the day that the model “went on her show in her bathing suit and said, ‘Kiss my fat ass.’”
“That’s what I feel right now,” McCain said. “I’m like, ‘Kiss my fat ass!’”


Ingraham quickly responded to McCain’s cruel and unkind cut on her own show with a motherly lecture on how to learn to deal with satire and “teasing” if you’re going to play in the big leagues.
“Can I say ‘lighten up’,” Ingraham asked, “or is that offensive too?”


Anyway, this Coulter clash illustrates a larger problem afflicting the GOP today: hard-core conservatives who would rather purge moderates like Megan — and build talk show ratings and book sales — than build their party and win elections.

Go read the entire article. It’s pretty funny. And, finally, I didn’t think I would get a chance to dust this off again, but it’s what’s at the bottom of the poster:

    That’s hilarious. Glad to see great debate is alive and well.

    Thanks Nonnie. And thanks for putting this together on a daily basis. It must be a ton of work…

    The McCain logo! I’ve always loved that one. I’m glad you got the chance to use it again, nons. I’m fairly certain, given McSame’s penchant for sticking his foot in his mouth, and now that his little darling is shooting off her yap, that there will be even more opportunities in the future. I hope so, this is a logo that’s just too good to not find service somewhere.

    Oh, and by the way, nons. MMMMWWWWWahaha! 🙂

    • gotta,
      the logos are among my favorite stuff to do. so glad that someone else likes ’em, too. although little meggie is taking aim at those in daddy underpants’s party, i’m not ready to hoist her on my shoulder (just what i need, a hernia!). she’s still a spoiled rotten little rich girl who is only paid attention to because of who her parents are. nepotism once again. i’m sure there are young people out there who actually have intelligent things to say, but we won’t hear them, because their mommies and daddies aren’t famous or fabulously rich. little meggie is just the paris hilton of politics.

      p.s. mmmwwaaahhhhh right back atcha! i missed you, and it’s so much livelier here when you’re around! 😀

    I’m new to this site…(only visited a dozen or so times) but I just had to write to say how much I like it. The art work is poignant , and oh so funny….appreciate the commentary, and posts too. It’s getting to where I am looking forward to visiting. Thanks for putting it out.

    • hello jimbo jones!
      welcome to the raisin! 😀

      thank you so much for your very kind words. i hope that you’ll make the raisin a daily stop, and i hope that you will comment often and become part of our little raisin family.

  7. Like all blond jokes those two are really bad!
    Take the gloves off! Go for the eyes!

    • and like most blonde jokes, these two are degrading to women and appeal to the basest intincts. the difference is that most blonde jokes are funny. 😉

    The, “I was just teasing!” or, “Can’t you take a joke?” is the first defense of a bully that gets called on their behavior. I refuse to accept it and I have taught my children that it is an important clue into a person’s personality. When confronted by an abuser who them blames the person they just attacked for “Not having a sense of humor.” it is time to turn away and not look back. This behavior permeates the conservative intelligentsia.

    • hello darren!
      welcome to the raisin! 😀

      it sounds like you are a very good father, teaching your kids the right lesson. once things are said, you can’t unsay them. blaming the other person for your lack of sensitivity just doesn’t cut it. the conservatives are very good at blaming everyone else for their shortcomings. the classic nonapology apology springs to mind–i’m sorry if anyone took offense to my remarks rather than what i said was offensive, and i’m sorry. it’s passing off responsibility to someone who had no control and has no liability in the matter.

  9. I love your logo work.
    And I hate to admit it, but I’m starting not to dislike Meghan McCain as intensely as possible.
    When she said on The View that Laura Ingrateham could kiss her fat ass, I really smiled.

    • i don’t hate her, but i don’t think she deserves to be seen or heard. she wouldn’t have said a thing if coultergeist had backed daddy. she’s just a little spoiled rich girl who never had to worry where her next meal was coming from or where she would live or how she would pay for college. let her go get a real job and live on her earnings instead of the family money. until then, her opinions are meaningless to me.
