I missed this bit:
“Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced-budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the Tea Party hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor,” McCain said.
Freshman Senator Rand Paul, a Tea Party favorite, shot back: “I’d rather be a hobbit than a troll.”
Mean, mean, mean! But funny. Rand Paul is a rising star – Aqua-Buddha Man is getting major media attention.
McCain’s missed rejoinder might have been “But trolls horde Gold – don’t you?”
