Kinda Lies A Lot Rice belongs in a federal penitentiary as a war criminal instead of prancing around the Stanford campus in her Prada stilettos. Poor Susan Rice incurred The Geezer's (R-AZ) wrath in the 2008 election when she pointed to The Geezer's fatal lack of foreign policy cred. Of course, The Geezer's helpmate in the U.S. Senate, Lindsey Graham-Cracker (R-SC), added his yapping to the Benghazi chorus. This pair of Dumbo attack dogs can only yap endlessly and accomplish N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Today, this blog's poet-in-residence, Calvin Trillin, shows us that the yapping dogs in the U.S. Senate are exactly that yapping A+S2(Holes). The two fools probably high-fived one another after Ambassador (to the UN) Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration to succeed The Hillster at State. If this is a (fair balanced) further display of A+S2(Holedom), so be it.

Qualifications To Be Secretary Of State, According To Senators John McCain And Lindsey Graham
By Calvin Trillin
Tag Cloud of the following article
Though Condoleezza Rice had once avowed
The smoking gun might be a mushroom cloud
And thus invasion simply couldn’t wait,
She was considered qualified for State.
Reciting talking points on Sunday shows
This year was quite sufficient to foreclose
The chance that Susan Rice would ever lead
At State—so Graham and McCain agreed.
The senators, when left to their devices
Make use of different rules for different Rices. Ω
