The fact that John McCain’s worshipful younger brother, Joe, has compared Tea Party patriots to Nazis is getting ample play on the Internet — as it should.
Giving his incoherent and manic rant further publicity would be pointless. Joe, 68, is a dinner theater actor, who has labored a lifetime in the shadow of his older brother. It would be difficult to imagine him releasing this vicious rant without the expressed approval of his brother, John.
They should both be aware that the actions of the original Tea Party patriots in Boston Harbor were the result of frustration with intolerable government policies. That is what drives Americans across this nation today to participate in Tea Party events.
In comparing patriots to murderous Nazis, the McCain boys have given us an insight into their convoluted thinking and told us in no uncertain terms what they think of us.
