I am certain McCain's intention was to INSULT the new Freshman Tea Party members in the senate and house--but he actually delivered the BEST compliment the Tea party has received since it's onset. Of course McCain was reading from an article in the Wall Street Journal--which referring to the tea party members in congress that are insisting on a balanced budget amendment--that the Hobbits have come up from middle earth to defeat Mordor. If you have watched these 3 episodes- (Lord of the Rings)---the ONLY people who can be trusted with the ring--aka the national treasury--are HOBBITS. So what was intended to be an insult--turned out to be one of the GREATEST compliment the Tea Party movement in this country has ever received. So--if you don't like Tea party--then call me a HOBBIT--all DAY LONG--24 hours a day--7 days a week--365 days a year. Because that is exactly what I am.
