Lindsey Graham

Still an asshole:

Webb: “This one thing I really take objection to is politicians …”
Lindsey keeps interrupting

Webb: “May I speak? … Is politicians who put their political views
in the mouths of soldiers. You can look at poll after poll and the

Graham: “Have you ever been to Iraq? Have you ever been?”

Graham: “Have you been to Iraq and talked to the soldiers?”

since the Revolutionary War.”

Graham: “Yea? Well so has my family.”

Webb: “They do it because they love their country. They do it because
they have a tradition, and it is the responsibility of our national
leaders so make sure that they are used properly.”

The other guy is Senator Jim Webb btw.
