McCain Vs Rand: You Tea Party Hobbits! You Troll! You Loggerheaded Bat-Fowling Barnacles

 A sophisticated war of words erupted between Arizona Sen John McCain and Tea Party favorite Sen Rand Paul. From Politico: 

The “Lord of the Rings” metaphors crept into the debt-limit fight on Thursday, as tea-party heroes fired back at Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who mocked members of the conservative grassroots movement as “tea-party hobbits.”

“I’d rather be a hobbit than a troll,” freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on a conference call when asked by POLITICO about McCain’s remarks. “I think in reading the books, the hobbits were the heroes. They overcame great obstacles, and I think I’d rather be a hobbit than a troll.”

 John McCain has, in my imagination, just fired back at the Tea Party cranks: “You loggerheaded bat-fowling barnacles!” (create your own insults)

Washington is frazzled.
