The Word: Meghan McCain’s ‘Stupid’ roadtrip

Megan McCain.

Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black are teaming up to write a book. Meghan, the daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain, tweeted on Tuesday, “SO EXCITED TO FINALLY ANNOUNCE — I’m writing my next book with a gosh darned Democrat.”  The duo will also travel across the country to promote the humor book, titled “Stupid for America,” to talk to Americans about politics and to find out why, as the publisher put it, the system is “so f—ed up.”

Wait. Isn’t that exactly what Sarah Palin is doing right now on her “One Nation” bus tour? With all of these brilliant minds traversing the country to find out why our political system is broken, you’d think we’d have the answer by now.

Jolie just can’t stop gushing   

Everyone gets it, Angelina Jolie. You’re an incredibly lucky woman. And after six years together, during which their family has grown to six children, the actress can’t stop gushing about boyfriend Brad Pitt. “I am very lucky with Brad,” she tells the Telegraph. “He’s got the wonderful balance of being an extraordinary, great, loving father, a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man … in all things that it means,” she adds, blushing. I don’t know what that means. Is Jolie trying to tell us that Pitt doesn’t have a uterus? We knew that already — right?
