A Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said Sunday that the U.S. should consider military action against Pakistan if it continues to support terrorist attacks against American troops in Afghanistan.
“The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told “Fox News Sunday.”
He said if experts decided that the U.S. needs to “elevate its response,” he was confident there would be strong bipartisan support in Congress for such action.
Afghanistan is our ally? horse-shit!
strong bipartisan support? double horse-shit!!
Aghanistan and Iraq. Iran and/or Libya? North Korea?
And now Pakistan; Jesus H. Christ; how many other wars does this clown wants us to get into?
There aren’t many positive aspects to the looming possibility of a U.S. debt default. But there has been, I have to admit, an element of comic relief – of the black-humor variety – in the spectacle of so many people who have been in denial suddenly waking up and smelling the crazy.
A number of commentators seem shocked at how unreasonable Republicans are being. “Has the G.O.P. gone insane?” they ask.
Why, yes, it has.
But this isn’t something that just happened, it’s the culmination of a process that has been going on for decades. Anyone surprised by the extremism and irresponsibility now on display either hasn’t been paying attention, or has been deliberately turning a blind eye.
And may I say to those suddenly agonizing over the mental health of one of our two major parties: People like YOU bear some responsibility for that party’s current state.
Here’s the point: those within the G.O.P. who had misgivings about the embrace of tax-cut fanaticism might have made a stronger stand if there had been any indication that such fanaticism came with a price, if outsiders had been willing to condemn those who took irresponsible positions.
But there has been no such price. Mr. Bush squandered the surplus of the late Clinton years, yet prominent pundits pretend that the two parties share equal blame for our debt problems.
Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, proposed a supposed deficit-reduction plan that included huge tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy, then received an award for fiscal responsibility.
So there has been no pressure on the G.O.P. to show any kind of responsibility, or even rationality – and sure enough, it has gone off the deep end.
If you’re surprised, that means that YOU were part of the problem.

‘Our problem is we made a big deal about this for three months. How many REPUBLICANS have been on TV saying, ‘I’m not going to raise the debt limit.’
You know, Mitch [McConnell] says, ‘I’m not going to raise the debt limit unless we talk about Medicare.’
And I’ve said, ‘I’m not going to raise the debt limit until we do something about spending and entitlements.’
‘So we’ve got nobody to blame but ourselves,” Graham told reporters after a GOP caucus lunch.
“We shouldn’t have said that if we didn’t mean it.”

Libya – “In my view, wherever Kadafi goes, he is the legitimate military target. He’s the command and control source,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a member of the Senate Armed Services committee, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’d like to have a pour-it-on approach to get this over with.”

Afghanistan – “What we ought to do is pour it on now — we’ve got momentum,” Graham said. “Now is not the time to talk about leaving prematurely. Now’s the time to make sure you are leaving behind capacity. We won’t be judged by the day we left Afghanistan; we’ll be judged by what we left behind.”
Soviet Union: “It’s a damn shame we kin’t pour it on with the Soviet bastards ennymo’e, knows whut ah mean?”
“But then agin, there’s Putin; he’s a legit targit too. I mean ah’s wet jest thinking about it!”
