Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham standing in for O’Reilly last night:
Let the record show: I never called Meghan McCain fat! She isn’t! And as I have repeatedly said on my radio show and on Fox, she is an attractive young woman. If that throwaway comic line highlighted anything, it was Hollywood’s obsession with stick-figure women!
But here is the transcript from her radio show:
(mocking Megan McCain’s voice) OK, I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the Real World, but then I realized that, well, they don’t like plus-sized models. They only like the women who look a certain way. And on this 50th anniversary of Barbie, I really have something to say.
Apologies? Too emotionally disturbing to manage. Bald-face lying? Easy as pie.
And paranoid victimization? Ingraham manages it with equal facility:
The Obama attack dogs can twist my words, engage in emotional exploitation, and distort my intentions. But they will never, ever, silence me.
