FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS …
Maybe U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham was drunk during this week’s “Republican” second tier debate in Las Vegas, Nevada. Or maybe he was being clever … (perhaps too clever).
Either way, he has successfully injected filmmaker Rob Reiner‘s 1987 classic The Princess Bride into the 2016 presidential election, claiming that the movie’s heroine “Princess Buttercup” would not approve of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz‘s foreign policy regarding Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
“Ted, getting in bed with Iran and Russia to save Assad is inconceivable!” Graham said. “Princess Buttercup would not like this.”
Hold up … has Graham not gotten the memo?
More to the point: Is he really one to talk about “getting in bed with” unsavory people?
Anyway … far be it from us to question anyone invoking the lovely Robin Wright, but it is Graham whose foreign policy views are “inconceivable.” And dangerous.
America doesn’t need to invade anyone: It needs to “hit reset,” in our opinion. Oh … and use all those hundreds of billions of dollars in annual defense appropriations on things that actually defend us.
UPDATE: Here’s some mocking of Graham worth reading …
