Lindsey Graham Says Rand Paul Nomination Would Put Him Into a Coma

Iraq War liar Lindsey Graham apparently abhors Rand Paul. So much so that on Sunday’s Face the Nation, he actually ranked Paul below Obama on foreign affairs.

“I think everybody on our side, except maybe Rand Paul, could do better” than Obama, he said, in getting a deal with Iran.

Ouch. Think about how much Republicans hate Obama and his Iran deal, and you get an idea of the esteem in which Graham holds Paul.

But then, a lot of Republicans hate Paul right now. Fine. We get that. But then on Tuesday, appearing on Good Morning America, Graham said in response to the possibility of Paul’s nomination,

“Well, when I came out of my coma, I would support Rand Paul. I mean, it would be devastating, I think, for our party to nominate rand Paul as our nominee, on national security in particular, but if he wins the primary process, I will support him. But that has very little chance of happening in my view.”

Probably about as much chance as Graham himself has of being nominated. He’s the ninth Republican to enter the presidential race, and he probably won’t be the last.

And devastating? Is there any candidate who would not be devastating to the hopes of the GOP in 2016?

So the Republican primaries should be interesting. If they actually dare televise their debates – if they have debates – we will see why none of these people should be allowed within a continent of the White House.

Graham says he’s the foreign policy guy, which is kind of scary, when you think about some of his previous utterances in that area. I mean, this is the guy who has said he would quell ISIL by killing people for even thinking about joining the terrorist group.

This ranks right up there with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s plan to treat them like a recalcitrant labor union.

Graham claimed on Monday, when he announced his presidential fantasy,

“I’ve got one simple message: I have more experience with our national security than any other candidate in the race. That includes you, Hillary.”

The Senator from South Carolina signed Tom Cotton’s treasonous letter to Iran too, so he is also vastly more experienced in betraying his country than the former First Lady, Senator from New York, and Secretary of State.

I don’t know…I prefer a person who operates within our shared reality. Graham, notably, called reality “crap” when the House Benghazi Report didn’t say what he wanted it to say. And then there was the little episode where Graham, who insists we need some more Iraq War, hysterically claimed ISIL was going to invade the United States and kill us all.

Give me a mature adult any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Oh, and somebody who doesn’t hide from imaginary enemies. When ISIL captured Palmyra, it was Palmyra, Syria, not Palmyra Drive, in South Carolina.

Breathe, Lindsey.

Let’s face it, Graham is lagging behind the Bubonic Plague right now in popularity, and he has about as much chance of being president as rapist-friendly Mike Huckabee after lamenting he didn’t get a chance to shower with the girls in high school.

But he has a dream, and he has convinced himself that it can come true. Maybe he can get Sarah Palin to help him.

[I’m] just going to have to show up in New Hampshire and Iowa and South Carolina and sell the idea that I am the most experienced. I’ve been to Iraq and Afghanistan well over 30 times; 33 years in the Air Force has taught me well about how our military works.

He may know how the military works, but he clearly doesn’t know when the military should be put to work. If you want endless war, this is your guy. Well, one of your guys. There is a lot of endless war dreaming going on in the GOP.

I would suggest Graham just go into coma-mode and wait there while all this plays out. We’ll miss out on some comedy gold, sure, but it’s not like he is going to add anything meaningful to the discourse even if he is there. He hasn’t so far.

And after all, we’ll always have that rapey friend of pedophiles, Huck, and his puerile shower fantasies to sustain us.
