Slight glimmers today that some Rethug politicians are starting to stand up to the tea bagging nutters that have taken over the party:
-- Sen. John "Walnuts" McCain (Rethug-Sunset City), quoting a Wall Street Urinal editorial today on the Senate floor, calls the nutters "tea-party Hobbits." (Hee-hee) Of course, some of this is payback for tea party opposition to Walnuts' reelection in 2010. But sweet and righteous nonetheless.
-- Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is letting it be known that the Reid/ Obama/ Democratic plan on raising the debt ceiling warms his cockles (corkles?) more than Orange Boner's plan. Good for him. (There are a few more anti-nutter Rethuglican Senators, among them Sens. Coburn (OK) and Chambliss (GA) that deserve some credit for not wanting their country to go over the cliff to satisfy some morons on the far right.)
