    If Lindsey Graham is willing to grab an M-16 and lead us into battle with Iran I’m all for war with Iran.

    • This.

      The first words out of anyone’s mouth, anytime a politician makes war-talk, should be:

      “Are you personally willing to go to war, or send your children?”

      If the answer is “no,” the next thing to say is: “Then you’re full of shit. If it’s important enough to go to war over, it’s important enough that you and your children go. Next topic, please—and this time, try to avoid the bullshit.”

      If people want to sign up to support a war, it’s easy: online petition

      Graham could start off with a preamble, something like,

      “We the undersigned White Cristian Citizens of these United States do hereby pledge unquestioning Support for the State of Israel, to be at Her Beck and Call, Night and Day, even in controvention of stated Policy or Interests of the United States of America, and to the extent that We shall, at a Moment’s Notice and without Hesitation, personally purchase Arms and Supplies at our own individual Expense and submit to Military Service under Israeli Generals, Ourselves and every last Member of our Families, for the Duration of any Conflict, without Regard to Length, Expense or any other Hardship. To that End, We are also willing to enter into a Financial Bond of at least $4,000 per Day per Family Member eligible for Military Service for the duration of the conflict, and an additional Bond of $4,000 per Day for each otherwise eligible Family Member exempted from Active Military Service, not to be dischargable unless by full Payment in lawful Currency of the United States under any Condition.”

      I know it’s a bit wordy, but Big Ideas deserve Big Gestures. I’m sure Mr. Graham wouldn’t want halfway measures.

    Another bullshit headline.

    Far be it from me to defend people like Graham, but there’s a big difference between “demanding transparency” and “pushing for war.”
