Right-Winged Nutters and Tea Party Hobbits

by Dick Mac

The name-calling has started in earnest, and it's the right slinging the mud against the right!

In a discussion about public debt, British Minister Secretary of State for Business, Vince Cable told BBC television last Sunday:

The irony of the situation at the moment, with markets opening tomorrow morning, is that the biggest threat to the world financial system comes from a few right-wing nutters in the American congress rather than the euro zone.

Then yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has nothing to lose by being candid within a party that rejects his right-wing extremism in favor of far-right-wing-nut-job-extremism, quoted a Wall Street Journal editorial:

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.

As the GOP extremists get crazier, even the crazy Republicans begin to make sense! Keep it up, boys, we need you to continue showing your real colors!
