If you’re a guest at someone’s wedding, you probably shouldn’t insult them in front of thousands of people on Twitter. Just a thought.

Federalist contributor DC McAllister went after the television show The View this week in a tweet that has since gone viral. McAllister accused the show’s guests of being “delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation.”

The only problem? McAllister appears to have been a guest at show host Meghan McCain’s wedding.

“You were at my wedding Denise,” McCain replied.

Thankfully, the exchange has since become a meme.

Say what you will about Meghan McCain, her reaction to McCallister’s complaint is iconic. “You were at my wedding Denise” is something a New York drag queen would say to close out her drunken monologue. It could be a line from Mommie Dearest.

This is the kind of line you’d say in your bathrobe, drunk, enraged, pointing your finger while downing a cheap martini.

This is the kind of line that becomes a meme.

On Tuesday, McAllister (“Denise” ) issued a half-apology, explaining that McCain herself wasn’t a mental midget, she was just surrounded by mental midgets. OK, Denise.

But McCain didn’t respond in the comments. Instead, she took a moment to celebrate the birth of a meme.

Thank you, Denise, for the meme.
