Tea Party Hobbits

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Inspired by The GOP’s Reality Test: Republicans who oppose Boehner’s debt deal are playing into Obama’s hands (Wall Street Journal7/27/11) and tonight’s Hardball Sideshow.

“The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue, and the public will turn en masse against Barack Obama. The Republican House that failed to raise the debt ceiling would somehow escape blame, then Democrats will have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the Tea Party hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor. This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into GOP Senate nominees.” – Sen. John McCain reading from a Wall Street Journal editorial on the Tea Party Republican plan for the debt ceiling

 

It looks like the Straight Talk Express is back,

And this time it’s Tea Party Pintriots under attack.

 

McCain deftly skewers Tea Party politicians’ delusional views,

That they can win by making the country lose.

 

Sharron, it sounds like McCain knows that the Hobbits are heroes.

He’s just using the delusion that you’re one of the latter to mock you Tea Party zeros.

 

And it turns out that Rep. Joe Walsh lent his campaign money while not making his child support payments.

I guess his kids don’t rate very high among his personal debt ceiling claimants.

Here’s a collection of scenes from the greatest movie trilogy ever, Lord of the Rings. The Party politicians see themselves as noble heroes fighting against an evil foe (Obama = Sauron). Like the Hobbits, they just want to be left alone to live their simple lives, free from outside interference. Unfortunately, they’re actually more akin to orcs bent on destruction of civilization.
