Cock-Blocked by John McCain: Talkin' with Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black

Meghan McCain sits in an armchair in the green room of The Castro Theatre. In front of her, sitting cross-legged on the floor and looking at what appears to be a flyer for a circus, is Michael Ian Black.

The two have taken a monthlong tour of the US in a RV together, writing a book along the way titled, America You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom. The idea was a spontaneous one. Black was up late on Twitter, having taken an Ambien and in the process of eating a bag of Tostitos, when he decided to message McCain about the book. She agreed and within six weeks, they were on the road.

They would learn many things about each other and their country, including but not limited to what happens when McCain has had a little too much to drink. Black would later explain onstage to Joan Walsh, during the Inforum event that brought the two to the Castro Theatre, “Some girls make out with other girls when they get drunk. When Meghan gets drunk — she makes out with America.”

But before that, SF Weekly got the chance to sit down and talk with the now road-tested dynamic duo.
