#USA #Politics – Tolkien Literature and the Debt Ceiling

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

This jester has a fondness for literature and it is fair to call Stanczyk a Bibliophile. I adore the website LibraryThing . If you are studious and observe this site, you will divine that is biased towards English Literature. So it should not surprise the intelligentsia, that they claim J.R.R. Tolkien and his epic work, “The Lord of the Rings”, the greatest piece of literature of ALL time; even ahead of the Bard.

So I assume that the Brits now approve of the American Debate on the Debt Ceiling, for Lo .. And Behold, Gandalf has appeared in the Capital. This jester has been at enough royal courts to know when a wizard has appeared and is dispensing  wisdom …

Gandalf, aka John McCain, has called out his mad hatted men of mayhem, the Tea Party by their true names:  Hobbits! At the home of the Head Hobbit, Boehner Baggins, he has demanded they abandon their “Bizarro behavior” (mixing metaphors, and introducing Superman Literature). Decrying Hobbit wisdom of Nevada Angle or Delawarean Wiccan daughter of Bozo (who shall remain nameless), he has offered knowledge of the making of the one BILL to bind them all and rule them. So let us put our hopes in this renewed wizard, John McCain, the Grey Gandalf of Capitol Hill and pray he can break this spell of Hobbit lunacy.

Britons  and yea the rest of the world, should take solace in the words of that Great Honorary American Citizen, Winston Churchill, who observed, “You can always count on America to do the right thing … after they have exhausted every other possibility.” Now that was a great and astute leader — too bad that this age will have to make do with the rag-tag rabble we have assembled in D.C. to fight this evil menace — The Debt Ceiling. Very messy these hobbits.

In Gandalf We Trust, it is inscribed upon the coin of the realm.
