Daily Show host Jon Stewart couldn’t help but notice how frustrated traditional Republicans like John McCain and Karl Rove are with members of the Tea Party after seeing the party’s approval rating drop to historic numbers during the government shutdown, but they forgot one important thing:
They invited them in the first place.
Stewart points out ‘Turd Blossom’ Rove’s decade long strategy to push conservative ‘anger points’ and compared it to “starting a fire he can’t put out”.
Stewart also described Senator McCain as the “single least self-examining Republican crazy enabler”. McCain put the Tea Party in the national spotlight when he chose former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate in his 2008 election bid, giving her limitless fame and media attention.
You opened Pandora’s Box.You were the guy who gave the Mogwai a post-midnight all-you-can-eat buffet. You don’t get to complain that now the party’s overrun with gremlins.
