When Senator Lindsay Graham (R-Closet As Deep As The Ausable Chasm) says shit like this --
...“The people who are attacking us and attacking France are motivated by religious teachings that say there’s no place on the planet for anybody that disagrees with them,” Graham said on Fox News Thursday morning, adding that Obama is “undercutting” other foreign leaders by not acknowledging that it is a religious war. “I think he believes that strength is offensive, that he doesn’t want to be bold because he may offend somebody — it’s not offensive to say that these are religious fanatics that don’t represent Islam, that have to be dealt with, they have to be killed or captured.”…“When he left Iraq, he did so on a campaign promise. He’s trying to close Gitmo based on a campaign promise. His campaign promises are getting a lot of people killed. Our intelligence-gathering abilities have been compromised. The only way you can stop these attacks is to find out about them before they occur. We’re reducing our military spending at a time when we need it the most. These policies driven by President Obama of being soft and weak and indecisive are coming home to haunt us.”
-- he is perfectly sincere.
Not in the sense that what he is saying is true, of course -- Graham is a coward and a liar of the first order whose kink appears to be finding new ways to make other people's children die in whatever war Bill Kristol cooks up next.
No he is perfectly sincere in that he is a grown man who knows exactly what he is doing -- exactly what kind of degenerates and Dixie whistling Confederate dead-enders to whom his political fortunes are hostage.
Graham knows that at every day at the Roger Ailes Freakshow, the usual bigots and con men ritually round up the Usual Suspects to advance the usual agenda:
Fox Captures the Culprit for the Paris Attacks: Bill de Blasio, With an Assist From Obama
And he knows that as lightly camouflaged homosexual at the heart of the Party of Bigots and Lunatics in the heart of the Old Confederacy, if he doesn't want to end up on the fucking menu he'd damn well better sound off more brazenly blood-drunk and viciously insane than the next ten rednecks at the trough combined,
