Tolkien's Hobbits and Tory war minister Peter Mackay

Peter Mackay

Hat tip to Kinsella for this reference:

“Harper has never had to deal with ministers who wield their own political clout.…Today, [Defence Minister Peter MacKay] has the political stature of a hobbit.”
Hobbits live in homes in the ground.

Peter Mackay seems to have lived in an Orchard.

Hobbits are straightshooters.

Peter Mackay seems to have had trouble adding up the figures for the famous Jets.

Where's the HAL* when you need it?

  2. Yup; but Kinsella showed the way, hence the hat tip to him.
