McCain refers to 'tea party hobbits,' blasts Bachmann-backed idea (McInsane)
CNN ^ | Shannon Travis

Posted on 07/27/2011 5:37:59 PM PDT by jimbo123

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.

Except the Hobbits carried the day against the evil ones (read that as Tea Party does away with bad congress).

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.

http://hotair.com/archives/2011/07/27/wsj-tea-party-hobbits-need-to-go-back-to-middle-earth-or-something/

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. Boehner’s 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.

absolutely !!!

...and i remember in 2008, when that older lady in the “townhall” meeting called Obama a marxist,
McCain DEFENDED Obama, and told her she was wrong !

...has McCain EVER talk to, or about, liberals,
as he just did to conservatives ?!?

The last piece of the mask finally falls away and the inner liberal stands fully revealed. His contempt for the Tea Party shows McCain's true allegiance: big, overbloated government and his insatiable lust to dictate to the masses. And since he's fond of casting us in movie roles, here's the part McCain was born for:

The state of Arizona has done some things good for America & conservative ideals, but to re-elect this pompous ass when everyone knew what a pompous ass & jerk that McJerk is a complete travesty. What happened Arizona? How could so many people be deceived and convinced to vote for this a_hole in the last election, especially during the primary race? It literally boggles my mind!

OTOH, I live in the sad state of Minnesota, and we had an equal number of dumb asses who voted for a clown buffoon REALLY pompous jerk & a_hole, Al Frankenstein. Never mind that the election was stolen by a few hundred votes, the point is, it should have never even been remotely close to begin with. Unfortunately Norm Coleman inspired as much confidence & enthusiasm as a bucket of dirt and literally gave the election to Frankenstein.

So I guess that both AZ and MN suffer from some incurable disease for dumb ass voters to proliferate and send a_holes like McJerk and Frankenstein to Washington DC as the "honorable senators from AZ & MN".... God help our country and even moreso, please forgive the unbelieveable stupidity of AZ & MN voters.

I can only imagine what Sarah thought during that awful campaign in ‘08. When I think of what his flying monkeys did to her, I shudder. Seems like we’re having a major uptick in male chauvanism all over the place!

STFU McAmnesty!!! You and your totally mismanaged campaign are a great deal responsible for the insane marxist spending spree we've been on since president Asshat got to the WH! The tea party is trying to fix the mess "your friends" on the left are making. If you spent half as much energy criticizing "The Won" as you do conservatives, you'd be sitting in the big chair today rather than the child-president.

We can never thank you enough for your service during Vietnam, BUT JUST GO AWAY ALREADY!!!

sadly, you are correct.

and especially about Christine O’Donnell.
she is a good person, a good American, a good conservative,
and a good Christian.
she would have been a better senator for this country,
than at least 55 in there now...
and people like Rove and McCain, did the progressives dirty work for them...

and McCain also was a shill for the dems last month, when HE said that Obama wasn’t bound by the War Powers Act, regarding Libya...
Whenever they really need him, he’s there to give cover.
