Skip to comments.McCain refers to 'tea party hobbits,' blasts Bachmann-backed idea (McInsane)

On the same day that House Speaker John Boehner told Republicans to "Get your asses in line" and support his debt ceiling proposal, Sen. John McCain also blasted fellow Republicans.
In a Senate floor speech laced with sarcasm and stings, the Arizona Republican aimed especially harsh fire at the tea party Wednesday.

You are way past your expiration date McAmnesty. Do us all a favor and go take a dirt nap.
Except the Hobbits carried the day against the evil ones (read that as Tea Party does away with bad congress).
Oh just die already.
This POS is a perfect example of why we need term limits.
I can’t wait to see this useless idiot gone.
Last I heard, Hobbits saved all of the Free Peoples.
McCain has forgotten that the hobbits are the heroes in The Lord of the Rings.
And he has forgotten what the hobbits proved themselves to be capable of in The Scouring of the Shire.
KEEP TALKING MCAINIAC AND YOU’LL FORCE A 3rd PARTY AND THEN WE ALL LOOSE.
What’s the payoff, jackass?
Is this democrat-lite going to retire this term feet first or head first? What a pathetic ba$tard!
I’ve been around him several times. He is a total jerk and thinks he knows everything. He won’t listen to anyone once he decides he knows something. Pompous ass.
I doubt McCain knows anything about literature!
And what was that totally disgraceful, disoriented slam at Christine O’Donnell?! What a male chauvanist pig!
Why doesn’t he switch parties and get it over with?
Quoting from the original WSJ OP-ED:
But what none of these critics have is an alternative strategy for achieving anything nearly as fiscally or politically beneficial as Mr. Boehners plan. 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 all blame. Then Democrats would 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.”
Apparently you never read the book. The Hobbits didn’t “return to Middle Earth”; they never LEFT Middle Earth. They were, the object of scorn by the elite—Sauron and Saruman, and end up contributing greatly to the downfall of the former and the downfall of the latter.
Those who scornfully refer to members of the tea party as “hobbits” give them an honorable name—the name of a people who refused to bow to tyranny.
So, is McCain casting himself as Saruman?
You lost because you wouldn't speak up and you bowed before Odumbo started his bowing tour...your a loser,switch parties loser
Sam Gamgee for Senator!
