Hitlerian Hyperbole Hits Heights of Hysteria. Tea Partiers "Cannibal vampire zombie aliens"?


A legend in her own mind.

Remember by piece yesterday on Joe Biden's use of the language of the Third Reich? Well, Maureen Dowd has done him two or three better.

Tea Party budget-slashers didn’t sport the black capes with blood-red lining beloved by the campy Vincent Price or wield the tinglers deployed by William Castle. But in their feral attack on Washington, in their talent for raising goose bumps from Wall Street to Westminster, this strange, compelling and uncompromising new force epitomized “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and evoked comparisons to our most mythic creatures of the night.

They were like cannibals, eating their own party and leaders alive. They were like vampires, draining the country’s reputation, credit rating and compassion. They were like zombies, relentlessly and mindlessly coming back again and again to assault their unnerved victims, Boehner and President Obama. They were like the metallic beasts in “Alien” flashing mouths of teeth inside other mouths of teeth, bursting out of Boehner’s stomach every time he came to a bouquet of microphones. (Conjuring that last image on Monday, Vladimir Putin described America as “a parasite.”)

That is the most ridiculous thing I have read in a very long time. Not worth the paper it is written on.

This must be some sort of record for cliches having been strung together like stale kernels on a popcorn necklace.

Emma Peel would be on our side Mor-Dor. She'd gut fascist tools like you from crotch to eyeball with one of her stiletto heels.

I always had a thing for Miss Peel as a kid and wondered about Mr. Steed's err.. preferences.

Just why in the hell does she think the tea party people were elected by the American people if not to institute change in the way congress has been doing things. If that's not a typical reaction from one of the good ol' gals I don't know what is. I don't think she got the message.

It's a shame that there'll be no trials for them after the revolution, but an ad hoc tribunal and execution will work just fine.

Dowd can't hold a matchstick, let alone a candle, to the inimitable Mrs.Peel.

Now that's some good stuff!

Proof positive that the Mexican drug cartels have made inroads to supply the msm with all the 'inspiration' they need to face the demons in their own minds.

Sounds like she's 'smoked' 'coked' and 'ginned up' for the show.

BTW Mike, that photoshop of Mor-Dor's head on Emma Peel's luscious body kinda makes me want to hurl!!

Am I to understand that people still read her drivel? Amazing.

We must be scaring the crap outta those bastards.

They don't waste such hatred and vitriol on the ineffective.

Ah, if we were only menaced by "The Tingler" then we could all scream for our lives! But then again, the left wouldn't have to worry about The Tingler because it only grows along side someone's backbone, something the lefties lack.

Looks like something written to attract the attention of a fifth grader. Journalistic fertilizer.

Once a crack whore, always a crack whore. What else would you expect?

Yeah, the TEA Party'ers eat their dead, so what Maureen?

Fact it you know you're over the target when the flack gets heavy.

Good line I read once but can't find on the web. May have been from Steve Spurrier when he was head coach at Florida: "If they're saying nice things about you it's 'cause you're not beating them bad enough."
