Statler and Waldorf of Obama foreign policy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, are burdened with glorious purpose again with the mention of Iraq (there is a big US embassy there, and the wind whispered, "Benghazi"--and daddy needs a brand new rug) and are primed and ready to offer their unique comedic styling that almost resembles foreign policy thought.
Except, as I've noted before, Senator McCain likes to sling the lingo, but he just doesn't do the work where grasping foreign policy is concerned. He very recently left a briefing on Iraq in the very highest dudgeon, within mere minutes and having learned probably less than nothing because--uh, feels?
Or did he dislike having his beliefs shaken by facts, which could happen to the best of us if we bothered being receptive to them?
We may never know.
But regarding Lindsey Graham, even with his primary behind him, he is consistent in being so skeered of what is coming. And this is really his position: I am skeered/we should do stuff.
Why the hell aren't these two on Sunday morning chat shows more, is what I want to know. And how can we make them even more the thing featured on every news network, being wrong and emotional about said wrongness? C'mon old media, make this happen. It will be educational for the kids in how not to. They are the best examples of Goofus in existence. They are just always simply wrong.
