Yesterday we discussed how the Tea Party are acting like a bunch of terrorists who have declared a fatwa against…a functional economy? I don’t know I’ve never bought matching American flag Hawaiian shirts, therefore I do not understand those people.

But wait! It turns out we were wrong about suggesting that the GOP has become the party of terrorists (well, their tactics), rather according to their own leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell (R-KY) they are actually pirates! McConnell told the Washington Post that in his view the threat of default was a “hostage…worth ransoming”.

Ahoy! I’ve spotted some candor! Captain McConnell (what would his pirate name be? Nobeard? Noneck?) knows a thing or two about piracy, having lived as a sea turtle and watching pirates in action before moving to Kentucky and getting elected to the Senate. ‘Tis good to hear this old sea dog talk about ransomig the United States government for billion dubloons in spending cuts while still protecting billionaire scally wags.

Really buts the “arrrgghhh” in “R-KY” doesn’t it?
