Movieline's Favorite Celebrity Feud of the Day: Meghan McCain vs. Bristol Palin
Is there anything better than when one celebrity comes out against another celebrity on the public stage? Let me answer that for you: Hell to the no! It's why everyone got excited when Shia LaBeouf and Frankie Muniz started slinging mud via Twitter, and it's why the halls of Movieline HQ are buzzing with excitement over the fact that Meghan McCain basically called Bristol Palin "ridiculous."
You know Bristol Palin: She's the Dancing with the Stars contestant that should have gone home two weeks ago, but has somehow stayed alive thanks to strong support from either Republicans or people who like to watch train wrecks. She's also Sarah Palin's daughter. So when it was revealed that Bristol didn't vote on Tuesday ("Sorry, mom!"), you knew it wouldn't be very long before someone came out to blast her. Take it away, Meghan McCain:
"I guess it's only important for Bristol Palin to vote for Dancing With the Stars" Meghan told Jay Leno during her appearance on The Tonight Show. Senator John McCain's daughter explained that she's been voting since she was 18 and in her family "if you didn't vote ... that was like bad news."
The 26-year-old added, "I think a lot of women worked really hard to give us the right to vote. Anyone that doesn't vote is just ridiculous."
Burn? Yes, burn. This isn't the first time McCain has taken on Palin -- the almost-First Daughter took her to task for being a proponent of abstinence during an interview with Stephen Colbert in 2009. McCain also mocked her on The Daily Show in September.
