Meghan McCain visited Heidi Montag in Los Angeles yesterday. They did the Hollywood thing, got photographed by paparazzi and had to get help paying the bill. Read about it below and see lots more photos.(updated)

John McCain’s mini-me, Meghan, is taking a hiatus for the summer. I think its well-deserved. She’s been campaigning non-stop with her parents and if it were me, I’d need a break. She says she’s getting rested up for the big campaign push in the fall.

So what does she do? She heads out to California to do the Hollywood thing. She does lunch at Ivy on the Shore with The Hills star, Heidi Montag. Heidi poses and looks seductive for the cameras while Meghan looks more serious and is so enthralled with the whole experience that it looks like she spent most of the time on her cell.

I know, I know, this is all just thrilling news.

Its a little more interesting that neither Meghan nor Heidi had money to pay the valet. They were rescued by the paparazzi who hang out around places like that in hopes of getting photos of people like Heidi Montag. They paid the bill for them. The women had credit cards, no cash. I HATE when that happens.

Apparently, the paparazzi had no idea who Meghan was. While the inhabitants of Hollywood love to wax philosophic about politics and give their opinions on most everything, it seems that very few of them actually know anything about politics or who is who in politics.

But we do. So this is our Meghan McCain sighting for today. Thanks to the photogs in Hollywood who inadvertently got photos of her while they were trying to get a photo of a television actress. Heh!

UPDATE 8.11.2008: Interestingly, all of the sudden, the left is using this visit between Meghan McCain and Heidi Montag as proof that Meghan is a celebrity and therefore the John McCain campaign ad that featured Paris Hilton and Britney Spears was hypocritical.

I knnnoooowwwww. It doesn’t make any sense. Apparently they want to make ‘celebrity’ this year’s dirty word. But aren’t they are grasping at straws!?!
