Meghan McCain Is Getting Some Sort of Cable TV Show or Something

So, she's super excited 'n stuff.

The only way I can describe my series is it's meet the press meets [MTV's] jackass

Counter-premise: It will resemble neither show in any way.

Further counter-premise: It will consist of interviews conducted in an RV in which the chief topic of conversation is, "Isn't it wild we're doing a show in an RV?"

I almost don't blame her for the stupid hype-lines -- every show's debut comes with that stupid hype, like "It's like Firing Line meets Sofia Vergara's sex-pillows!!!"

Almost. Some of this is unforgivable. The following quotes are from the Huffington Post.

Gee, I wonder if the show is going to be uncensored -- but real.

She said that the show would be "uncensored" and "real."

Wow. A "real" show. Not like those phony shows with phony issues and phony people. Real talk, for real people.

In a real RV. Hey guys isn't this great?, Flounder was quoted as saying.

You know how every ten years there's that adjective that basically means the same thing as "cool" that everyone overuses and it becomes embarrassing in retrospect? "Real" is 2003's "hep" or "funky." It was popularlzed by the Real World's intro's closing line, about "things getting real." And that show is way old, yo.

But what sorts of real issues -- which I assume will be "edgy" -- will she be covering?

One example of an issue she would be interested in covering is the explosion of meth in her homestate of Arizona.

Well I'm sure there's a lot of angles to cover there. We need real talk about meth, a real problem.

But will this show be for young people? And what deficiency in current news delivery will it cure?

"We're told ... that young people can't have news because we're just tweeting all the time, and that's just bullshit," McCain said at the presentation.

Ah good, she got the word "young" in there; time was ticking down on the clock, and I feared she wouldn't get her shot off in time.

Listen, I don't know who you guys are, but You know who you are.

Let me address You. Yes, You. The one reading this right now.

I don't know which of You said this horrible thing, that "young people can't have news" (what? that doesn't even make grammatical sense) because they're "just tweeting all the time," but Thanks a lot for saying that. Now Meghan McCain has a show just to answer you.

I swear if I find out which of you said "young people can't have news" (Como? Esta anglais?) because they're "just tweeting all the time," and brought this sweaty, stinky, podcast-from-an-RV upon all hour heads, I'm going to ban you.

One last thing. @noahcrothman tweeted something that I thought was a parody. It was absurd. It was an absurd line claiming certain attributes supposedly belonging to Ms. McCain.

Just for shits and giggles, and expecting to look like a fool, I asked him, "That was a parody, right?" Because if it wasn't a parody I wanted to include it.

I was sure it was a parody. But I did want to check.

Not a parody. This was really said. In fact, it was written, which is even crazier, because usually deliberation and self-reflection occurs during writing.

What is this show "Raising McCain"?

a genre-bending docu-talk series starring and executive produced by the complex and accomplished Meghan McCain with Go Go Luckey Entertainment

See? I thought it was a joke. But I asked to make sure. And holy hell, it's not a joke.

And... "genre-bending"? It will be a talk show in which they try to "hep" things up by being zany, just zany, I tell you.

No one's tried that before.

And no one's tried it... in an RV that smells like Coors and talcum powder over backsweat.
