Like her or not, Meghan McCain is a newsmaker. Her columns at the Daily Beast are mystifyingly popular, her first book, “Dirty, Sexy Politics,” is a New York Times bestseller, and her tweets are heard ’round the world. McCain’s use of Twitter to rant about her critics, brag about trips to Vegas and post pictures of her cleavage hasn’t gone unnoticed.

McCain, who tweets under the handle @McCainBlogette finally got on someone’s last nerve, and thus the mock Twitter account @McCainBoobette was born. When the real Meghan McCain gets upset on Twitter, her impersonator isn’t far behind. When McCain responded to a FishbowlDC article about the new author snubbing D.C. bookstores on her tour, Boobette came out with a response of her own: “omg DC jernalists, U totlly want me & think Im important or else U wouldnt right about me, My mom said! st0p looking at my CLEAVAGE.”

The Daily Caller was lucky enough to sit down with @McCainBoobette for an interview:

TheDC: Hi Meghan! Thanks for chatting with me!

MM: hi, Im only chatting w/U because your hot, so your welcome

TheDC: I really do appreciate you taking some time off from your book tour to talk with me for a few minutes. How’s the tour been so far?

MM: Tttly awesome. My book is realy important becasue Im a young Republican woman and its been great to meet young ppl at signings who look up to me as a Leader

its really tiring though

TheDC: It was reported that you canceled one stop on the tour saying you were sick and then wound up tweeting from Las Vegas. What happened?

MM: whatEVER, thats just sexist DC reporters talking. No one knows what its like 2 be a young person, so what I played hookey. I love Vegas, you should go

TheDC: Is that the right kind of message to send to all the young people out there who look up to you?

MM: like their ever going to get a book deal LOL. but yeah, you dont understand how tough it is to stay in hotels and order room service on a book tour, and you have 2 travel and stuff, and its like alot of hardships. young people know about hardships & how ya just have to rock it out sometimes to deal with stress.

TheDC: It’s no secret that you have a lot of critics. What do you have to say to people who charge that you aren’t conservative enough?

MM: I say to that BRING IT. I know there really only saying it bcause of how I look, theres so much discrimination and h8 in the world. I represent Conservative values as a rebel, and critics just cant get those conundrums. Until they realize they are loosing all the cool, young voters, they wont get that they need to be like hipper. my critics also need to have more sex

TheDC: What about people who say you only have a platform because of your last name?

MM: Whatever, I know that Im out there being a voice for the unrepresented, and my mom & dad say Im great. It has nothing to do with names and labels. I hate labels except cool ones like Betsy Johnson and Chanel

TheDC: You say you don’t always see eye-to-eye with your dad on political issues, and especially on gay rights. Why do you think that is?

MM: I love my Dad he is such a great Senater. But hes just old, thats why I think he doesnt get the gay rights thing. Old people are cute but they are not the future like me. He also told me once that he just has to say certain things so he can like get elected over & over again & politics as usual blahblahblah politics is boring

TheDC: What’s your stance on gay marriage? On Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?

MM: My stand on gay marriage is that everyone should be able to get married, duh. I say NO H8 and thats what not letting my gays get married is. THats when I got 2 do that awesomehot photoshoot with duck tape and an elephant it was the coolest. I think DADT is when they hate gays in the military so much that they make them shut up about they’re sexuality? That is Hate as well. I say lets stop that.

TheDC: Most important issue to you?

MM: ummmm, right now it is making sure people dont judge me by my cup size

TheDC: Favorite hobby?

MM: drinking beer!

TheDC: I guess that answers my next question. Drink of choice?

MM: Im a Wild West girl, so its Bud lite. Then I want to say my favrite hobby is BLACKJACK

TheDC: A true Vegas girl. So what’s next for Meghan McCain? Another book? More speaking engagements? More partying with your gays?

MM: I like to think of Life as a nonstop party. I think Perez Hilton told me that once, omg I want to hang out with him again! Ive been asked to do like a million more books, and my agent is making bank booking me at colleges n stuff so yeah. I feel its my responsabilaty as a young person. I wont be leaving the public eye anytime soon cuz Daddys gonna win again!

TheDC: And finally, anything else you want to say to all the haters out there before we’re done?

MM: LOL keep h8ting, you just make me more dollars yo’, and get me on more Maddow shows! Also, SEXISTS.
