"Yeah But You're Fat" Is Not A Valid Rhetorical Technique

Meghan McCain: "I think that the strategy of constantly expounding upon the most extreme possible social conservative positions imaginable is starting to backfire on Republicans. It's really turning off younger voters."

Laura Inghram: "Shut up, Meghan McCain. You're fat."

Does anyone else see a disconnect between the argument and the rebuttal here? I'm gonna have to say that McCain won this exchange. Besides, Meghan McCain doesn't look particularly fat to me.
