In other news, Senator Lindsey Graham is ready to bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

“If nothing changes in Iran, come September, October, I will present a resolution that will authorize the use of military force to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb,” Graham told a “cheering” audience at a conference put on by the right-wing group Christians United for Israel, according to CQ Roll Call.

Meanwhile, Christine O’Donnell may be considering another run for Senate. And she is not a witch. She’s you.

    This should be a friendly reminder to all the idiot trolls on the far left who pollute their nonsense here. Whatever you may think of Obama and drones and shit, the Republicans are actually capable of doing far, far ,far worse. Lindsey Graham is living proof of that.

      Well, that’s usually the kind of thing you’d expect to see after a bad break-up when Person A realizes that Person B–THE ONE with whom they would spend the rest of their lives and live in sunshine and rainbows for ever and ever and ever (insert smiley-face heart)–is a “disappointment” by being a real, ordinary human being with flaws that Person A willingly overlooked or ignored during the awesome courtship/romance, even as Person A’s friends all tried to point out how Person B really wasn’t all that only for Person A to threaten to cut those friends out of his/her life because they were all jealous that Person A had *finally* found true love with Person B.
      (There were a lot of us who kept trying to point out all of Obama’s flaws back in 2008 but all those folks on the far left couldn’t see anything past “well, he didn’t vote to let Dubya go to war with Iraq”–even as Obama had spent 3 1/2 years in the Senate voting pretty much the same fucking way that the “evil” Hillary did when it came to all things Iraq and foreign policy. We kept trying to point out that Obama simply was not ready to be President but those cries were met with accusations of racism. Ironically–at least to me–was the fact that the same people who used Hillary’s authorization vote as why she shouldn’t be the nominee in 2008 were largely the same people who were most eager for her to run in 2004 and most disappointed when she chose to keep her promise to the voters of New York. And let’s not forget, when it came time for Obama to pick his VP, did he go with someone radical and revolutionary and fresh? No. He chose the guy who’d been in the Senate longer than anyone else had been at the time–Biden started in the Senate before Obama hit puberty–even as Hillary was largely naysayed for not being a “fresh face.”)

    Of course Chrisitine O’Donnell is running for the Senate. She’s a professional candidate. This will be her fourth attempt at running for the Senate.

    …..Graham told a “cheering” audience at a conference put on by the right-wing group Christians United for Israel….
    Miss Lindsay should take a powder.
    No more holy wars by these buybull thumping fools who are all too willing to send our children into war for a warped superstitious ideology and their political & financial gain.
