A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Lindsay Graham Hits the Nail on the Head

Senator Lindsay Graham (R SC) is not the most popular person in some Conservative circles. This is probably because he typically has sane views about push button issues of the most feral elements of the GOP regarding illegal immigration.

Graham has been putting forth some real gems however, recently with regard to US policy in Iraq. In a recent radio interview, the South Carolina Senator made some important comments.

He said the security situation in An bar Province is much better with the leading Sheiks actually calling for people to join the police force. Many Sunni leaders are beginning to openly reject Al Qaeda and recently the Iraqi justice system brought a Shea police official to trial for torturing a Sunni. Senator Graham concluded by saying, “We must not allow car and suicide bombers to dictate our foreign policy.”

This is exactly what Al Qaeda is doing in Iraq, and they know that the paper tigers in Congress, will fold just as a piece of paper will do when pressure is applied.

Another gem that Sen. Graham came out with after Senate Majority Leader Reid’s horrific statement that “The War is lost”, is the purely rhetorical question, then who won?

This is precisely what I had been pondering, and I won’t begrude the Palmetto State’s Senator credit for this thought. The obvious answer is Al Qaeda, as they are primarily whom we are engaging in Iraq. Thank you Sen. Reid, Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic Caucas for waving the white flag to the most nefarious terrorists on the planet at this stage in world history. Because they are the winners.



  1. Yes, that is what my dad has been saying over and over too. I have had to watch lots of noggin and not albe to watch the news… but i do hope the news is pounding on the issue that he basically declared the terrorists the winners.

  3. I wasn’t sure if you were hitting your head, since that is what ‘noggi’ means here! Cross cultural miscommunications!
