The View's Meghan McCain has found herself being taken to the Twitter woodshed after she fired back at a Jewish cartoonist for ridiculing her for trying to become the spokesperson for Jews on what is anti-Semitic -- when she is not a Jew.
Responding to cartoonist Eli Valley's cartoon (see below), which called her out for her tearful comments made on The View, McCain shot back, calling it "one of the most anti-semitic things I’ve ever seen. Also, this reveals so much more about you than it does me.."
Then it was on, as Twitter users piled on McCain -- including Ezra Koenig, the lead singer of Vampire Weekend.
