Gosh. Even stronger that I would do. I mean, Washington is filled with liars. And it has its share of scumbags. But both in the same package! And in the White House no less – now this is news.
This one’s a few days old, but it doesn’t seem to have gotten much play and frankly, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a U.S. senator refer to White House officials as “scumbags.”
Unless someone said that about Bill Clinton. I mean, there’s just no getting around it. He was indeed a scumbag. And clearly he lied. So that made him a lying scumbag. Honestly, I’m sorry to say it.
Now he’s a vegetarian and everything’s cool.
Also, this piece goes too nicely with the piece below, since Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are compadres.
No, not that kind of compadres.
Anyhoo, Graham, as he himself noted in this radio interview last week with Mike Gallagher, is getting primaried by a bunch of Tea Party challengers. He looks like he will win the June 10 primary, but one can never be too careful.
So, while I accept Graham’s claim that he’d have been all over Benghazi even without the primary challenge, the colorful language is surely meant to convince the base that he knows a lying scumbag when he sees one.
From the show:
Some guy said this about me yesterday on the left: The only reason I cared about this was because I have six tea party opponents. Well, if that’s true, I’m the biggest scumbag in America. I don’t think that’s true. I know it’s not true.
It would be almost impossible for Lindsey Graham — given who I am and what I’ve been doing for the last 20 years — not to care about those in harm’s way, who get killed . . . and the scumbags are the people in the White House who lied about this.
