As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Graham: Lying Scumbags Lurk the White House

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.

  1. Given who I am and what I have been doing for the last 20 years, I’d say that there are more lying scumbags in the US Senate and Congress then there are in the WhiteHouse at any given time.

    • Tough call. But I would say gentility has croaked. Speaking of, they had some clip on MoJoe of a reporter interviewing a local candidate and getting taken to task by him for writing down blah-blah-blah for another candidate’s quotes. The reporter told the candidate that was two strikes for him–reporters do not tell candidates things like this! I am sorry.

  2. Exactly, Keith, Miss Lindsey wants to be certain he’s over the 50% mark. BTW, Mitch McConnell is really out for a vendetta on the Tea Party: his pack is pouring money into the Nebraska US Senate primary in which conservative physician Ben Sasse has a slight lead.

  3. Graham is long past his “expiration date” as a real “Republican” Senator…

    This is why We the Citizens need to have TERM LIMITS for these dopes, liars and criminals in the ‘US Senate’ & ‘US House’…
