Stop the presses! Arizona Sen. John McCain and his former Presidential running mate actually agree on Sunday.

McCain is saying on ABC’s Good Morning America” that he agrees with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin‘s belief that Republican congressional candidates will suffer at the polls if they stray from the tea party’s anti-spending, anti-tax message.

McCain says Republicans should heed the tea party messages that connect with voters.

McCain warned that Republicans”betrayed our base, particularly in the area of fiscal responsibility” after they gained control of Congress in 1994 and voters turned away from the party in the following elections.

“What Sarah is saying is, ‘We’ve got to get fiscally responsible Republicans in, ‘ ” McCain said.

    Doug Thompson, thank you for bringing this to CHB.

    John McCain is bad for American freedom.

    The same John McCain who proposes indefinite detention for US citizens?

    Palin didn’t even finish her term as governor, yet somehow American’s are OK with this being the case?

    Now that these two “Israeli-firster” shills are equated with the Tea Party, the “honest Americans” who sincerely have the USA’s best interests at heart are going to find their Tea Party infiltrated and destroyed from within.

    These two (McCain and Palin) are part of the problem, not the solution.

    The Tea Party is toast.
