Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seems to have a problem with basic grammar.
“Everything that starts with ‘Al’ in the Middle East is bad news,” Graham said at a dinner in Boston on Monday with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, according to investigative journalist Uri Blau.
Graham was referencing the Arabic word for “the.”
“Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra, Al-Qaida in the Arab Peninsula,” he continued. He went on to discuss U.S. relations with Israel and the Arab world, threatening the funding of the United Nations if it “marginalized” Israel.
He’s got the support of a number of kids in Grade 8 who hate “al-Gebra,” but he’s pissed off a lot of denizens of the Everglades, and you really don’t want to dis the “al-Ligators.” I’d suggest he calm down and have a drink, but apparently he also has a problem with “al-Cohol,” which would explain this bizarre and xenophobic behavior.
