Skip to comments.Shut Up, He Explained

Daniel, re Lindsey Grahams suggestion that everyone should just shut up about the Libyan Non-War, youll recall that the last time the Senator attracted any attention in these parts he was also telling everyone to shut up this time about Islam. Maybe it would be easier if he just issued the rest of us with an approved list of conversational topics.
Alternatively, heres a suggestion for Senator Graham: Why dont you shut up? Not permanently, but just long enough to:
a) reflect whether this apparently reflexive response of yours is really appropriate for a citizen-legislator in a self-governing republic;
b) articulate a rationale for the Libyan mission that would be so persuasive it would save you the trouble of making a fool of yourself by insisting that those who have the temerity to disagree with you are beyond the bounds of public discourse;
and c) spend ten minutes in a darkened room with a nice cup of herbal tea and ponder, re your assertion that those who wont shut up are empowering Qaddafi, whether that line has any credibility coming from a member of the Congressional jet set who only two years ago was empowering Qaddafi by taking tea in the pock-marked transvestites tent as part of some greasy little Senatorial outreach mission.
It was striking that, at Mondays debate, even the more hawkish candidates were unable to articulate a rationale for the present Afghan mission. Its hard to win a war when you dont have war aims, and, as I wrote in National Review a couple of weeks back, America has gotten into the habit of unwon wars in part because a buffoon like Graham and his dictatorial air miles are what passes for geostrategic expertise in Washington.
Do the people of South Carolina have no decent alternatives to Lady Graham?........................
In 2009, McCain Lieberman and Grahamnest visited Qadaffi in Libya, on a US taxpayer Senate visit to discuss “ties of mutual respect and friendship” yada yada yada
“nonlethal military assistance to the GOVERNMENT OF LUBYA “ yada yada yada
a week before the Lockerbie bomber released
So who now should SHUT UP
Watch Graham, he walks 3 steps behind McCain like a proper man toy
Qadaffi Gordon Brown and Obama at dinner together
I could read Mark Steyn all day long.
He goes right to the heart.
Sometimes, I think he reads my mind. ;>)
A good patriot, Mark Steyn.
That’s gonna leave a mark . . . . I hope.
Who GAS what Lindsey says - about anything? Any of the rest of them, either. It’s just like a message from Hollywood.
Pulls back chair, stands and applauds.
Not til 2014.

Best article title I’ve seen in a long time!
He was going to "self-term-limit," as he himself put it when running for office. No lifer pol he!That was his entire platform for his first election. I was there in SC and I remember.
Lying sack of $#!+ weasel.
After all, South Carolina is famous for calling out liars ....
This is just another manifestation of Anthony Weiner Syndrome. A girly-man trying to prove his manliness.
The dolts elect him every six years. What can you do?
Nobody delivers a smack down like Steyn.
I agree completely. Let me share with you this one I posted Sunday [LibzGetReal]. I couldn't believe there was only one comment to the thread (other than my lame plea for bttt).
did LibzGetReal get pinged to the Steyn list? It was most awesome (IMHO).
Here is the link to digg this story:
Digg is fairly dominated by liberals, so I like to promote conservative columnists like Mark Steyn.
We have to remove him in the primary and that won't happen as long as the State GOP is filled with party hacks and we have open primaries that allow democrats to cross over and vote for the twerp.
