Graham to Continue Chasing Benghazi Fantasies

After 60 Minutes aired their bombshell Benghazi report featuring noted fraudster Dylan Davies, Senator Lindsey Graham said he would block all nominations until someone tucks him in and tells him a comforting bed time story about the Obama administration’s failure in Benghazi.

Dylan Davies was exposed, 60 Minutes retracted their report, and Simon and Schuster pulled Davies’ book from store shelves, but Senator Lindsey Graham is unmoved by these revelations.

Graham said Sunday that he will continue to threaten a hold on Obama nominees in the Senate until he is able to interview State Department witnesses about the attack.

“I released two [holds] with the understanding that we’re going to have a bipartisan process to interview the survivors and ask the basic questions,” Graham said. “The only reason is I’ve been trying for a year to get the interviews without holds.”

In other words, Lindsey Graham will stick his fingers in his ears and sing ‘la la la I can’t hear you.’

Graham stated last week that he intends to place a hold on the president’s nominations for the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Reserve, neither of which have anything to do with embassy security. Refusing to confirm a director of homeland security or a chairwoman of the Federal Reserve could adversely effect security here at home or the economy, however.

    Hmmm, is Graham feeling the fetid breath of the Tea Party on his neck in next year’s primary?

      At this point, absolutely everything Lindsey Graham does is to keep from getting primaried. The loons want Benghazi! Benghazi!! Benghazi!!! 24/7/365? Done. They want Graham to block any nominations made by the blackety-black-black Islamofascistsocialist usurper? Done. They want him to pull his pants over his head and run around the Senate floor making quacking noises? Give his staff twenty minutes to work out the logistics.

        Wait, I thought the pants over head quacking thing was a daily routine for him! I’m so confused.

          No, he usually honks like a goose. (Don’t feel bad, Graham’s so bad at animal impressions it’s an easy mistake to make.)

            You crack me up. I’m sitting here giggling and getting sideways glances. I’m very, very tempted to ask the conservatives looking askance at me if they like cooked goose.

            Then my work here is done. *strikes superhero pose*

        Yes, that’s exactly what the Tea Party looks for in a leader.

        Yet another example of how warped they are.

        He’s pretty much a dead man walking no matter what he does. He’s got at least three primary challengers already lined up to take him down, every one of them a batshit crazy teabagger ready to rip him to shreds.

        • muselet

          Yep, so why not go out with some dignity?

          Oh, wait, this is Lindsey Graham we’re talking about. Never mind.

    Hey Reid, what happen to that last deal about not blocking top key nominees.. Get rid of the filibuster.. This dishonest lying twerp is only doing this because he’s up for re-election.. He’s using his position of power for political gain..
