Meghan McCain Twitter Photo

Meghan McCain had no idea when she placed this photo on Twitter that it would cause such an uproar among Republicans and her Twitter fans.  The daughter of Senator John McCain who ran for President last year has made an official apology for the posting of the photo.   

“[My] ’spontaneous’ night in is my Andy Warhol biography and takeout. … I’m getting old,” she originally wrote when posting the photo.

Meghan McCain has about 60,000 Twitter followers who sent the photo around the Internet after its posting on Wednesday.

Initially McCain said this:

“So I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing, but apparently anything other than a pantsuit, I am a slut,” she Twittered.

The later she tweeted:  “[Why] I have been considering deleting my twitter account, what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassment.”

Finally, she just apologized with this: 

“I do want to apologize to anyone that was offended by my twitpic,” McCain wrote Wednesday about the photo that has been viewed 103,911 and counting. “I have clearly made a huge mistake and am sorry 2 those that are offended.”

Many of her followers are angry about the photo and have sent her really nasty tweets.

McCain responded to those comments with this tweet:

“[When] I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweatpants, I had no idea this makes me a ‘slut’, I can’t even tell you how hurt I am.”

      Thank you for this astute obioevatsrn! This is exactly the irony of a debate in which the two sides characterize themselves as pro-choice and pro-life but refer to their opponents as pro-abortion and anti-choice. The fact is that no one is pro-abortion in this debate; no one has ever argued that abortion is a good thing only that women should have a choice. Meanwhile, those who call themselves pro-life really should be called anti-choice, because they argue that there is no choice to be made at all. So why are social conservatives praising Bristol for choosing to bear her child? According to the Christian Right bumper sticker, a child is not a choice. Antiabortion advocates would have us believe that once conception has occurred, carrying the pregnancy to term is a moral imperative, and there is no choice to be made at all. And of course, they would like to make such a choice impossible for all of us by making it illegal. But when faced with the question themselves, even anti-choice candidates like Palin and McCain inadvertently acknowledge that conception does not HAVE to mean childbearing it is simply one possible choice. The semantics of the argument prove the point: no matter how much these folks disapprove of abortion, they still believe there is a choice to be made about whether to have one. And that reality is all that abortion-rights advocates have ever fought to protect!
