Make Lindsey Graham President or the World Will Literally Explode

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) became Thursday the fourth recent GOP presidential prospect to launch his a PAC ahead of a potential 2016 run. In what will come as surprise to absolutely nobody with a cable connection. his new website Security Through Strength focuses on national security, the subject of oh-so-many Graham free-associative word salads on the Sunday shows.

In a bold move to one-up Scott Walker’s quoting of Ronald Reagan, Graham quoted himself quoting Reagan, officially positioning Graham as the Michael Scott candidate of the GOP field:

Graham has been less hyped in the 2016 convo than have figures like Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, etc., though he does have a national profile thanks to his aforementioned cable news dominance and forceful views on foreign policy.

“A frequent visitor to American troops stationed overseas for on-the-ground assessments, Graham has consistently pushed for outcomes in the War on Terror which protect our long-term national security interests,” the website boasted. “One leading conservative recently wrote that when it comes to defending America, ‘[Lindsey] Graham has been right about more things on foreign policy for longer than just about anyone…if anyone has bragging rights on foreign policy, it is Graham.'”

If that means constantly threatening nuclear war, another 9/11, generalized apocalypse, or any other variety of homeland attacks if we don’t surrender to a small cabal of congressional hawks, it’s dead on.
