John McCain- Hobbit Maker

My Precious!

Sen. John McCain on Wednesday took on conservatives reluctant to raise the national debt ceiling, calling them "tea party hobbits" and saying that if they reject the House Republican plan, they will help reelect President Obama.

At times reading from a Wall Street Journal editorial during his floor speech, the Arizona Republican also ridiculed Democrats, saying Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's plan is "full of smoke and mirrors."

But he directed the most biting sarcasm at his own party.

The "hobbits" remark came from the Journal editorial, a reference to the little people of Middle-earth in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

McCain said conservatives' insistence that an increase in the debt ceiling be accompanied by a balanced budget amendment was "worse than foolish" because it couldn't get through the Senate.

Reading from the editorial, McCain continued:

"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.... 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. (It seems the Republicans have been making good use of their Netflix subscriptions before the increases goes into effect).

"This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell into GOP Senate nominees," he said, referring to the failed tea-party-backed candidates from Nevada and Delaware.

"The reality is the debt limit will be raised one way or the other.... If conservatives defeat the GOP plan, they will not only undermine their House majority, they will go far to reelecting Mr. Obama and making entitlements that much harder to reform."

Is this the same guy that dug up Sarah Palin, a person that can't even spell her own name,  from the Alaskan permafrost in 2008? If the tea party are Hobbits, then McCain is Gollom, the schizophrenic split personality who is a DSM-IV's wet dream,  Hobbit aged unnaturally because he was corrupted by the power of the ring. Because of his insanity he was willing to risk self destruction to obtain the thing he believed he wanted, but it ended up destroying him and his reputation as an honorable man and so called "maverick". My only problem with his comment, is that to compare members of the Tank the Economy of American (TEA) Party to Hobbits is an affront to those gentle and good-natur­ed beings. They are more like Orcs than Hobbits. Where are the Cylons when you need them to beam me off this dead rock? It appears that someone spiked Gollom's coffee with some viagra and he's finally waking up to reality. We can only hope.

Maybe the people won't get the reference that Republican's are Hobbits because that's so 2003. Calling Republican's Decepticons could be a more relevant up to date reference. After all the Tea Party members are robots in disguise, they hate human beings, and they don't mind destroying the entire planet Earth to accomplish their goal. What I do know, is that McCain has reaped what he has sown by introducing and promoting the gold standard of ineptitude in governance, The Hillbilly's from Wasilla.

The Grumpy Old Man is a Republican and as such is and expert in living in a fantasy world, so Middle Earth, Mordor, Troll's, Hobbits, and Orc's come natural to him.
