Meghan McCain, who is only famous for being the daughter of Senator John McCain, had another rough night tonight.  It seems she had some trouble figuring out the correct unemployment numbers:

Apologies, I said the unemployment rate was at almost 9%, I have been corrected that it's 8.5%.

*8.2% – regardless of my mistake, my point remains. President Obama should be worried about being re-elected given where the economy is.

Everyone had a good laugh over that one:

@hale_razor @McCainBlogette Is the rate half empty or half full?

Meghan McCain is technically just an idiot, but I'm rounding up and calling her a moron.

Math is hard. RT @McCainBlogette: Apologies, I said the unemployment rate was at almost 9%, I have been corrected that it's 8.5%.

BREAKING RT @McCainBlogette: . . . President Obama should be worried about being re-elected given where the economy is.

Later she huffed:

If me blocking you on twitter is a noteworthy moment in your life – you maybe should reassess your priorities….

Presumably this was in response to the buzz over best-selling author of “Fast and Furious” @KatiePavlich’s glee at getting blocked:

@KatiePavlich @McCainBlogette There is only honor in that. Well played Katie, well played. #usefulidiotneverwas

@KatiePavlich what did you do to get @mccainblogette to block you? Did you point out that she is vapid, obtuse, nescient, insincere or all 4

@KatiePavlich You inspire me. RT @KatiePavlich @McCainBlogette blocked me….+1
