Senatorial chicken-hawk Lindsey Graham is our latest Putz of the Week.

This has been a subdued and peculiar day around here highlighted by a number of sequential naps in various rooms of the house, interesting movies, occasional food and no motivation to write a Howdygram post until about five minutes ago. In case you’re looking for specifics, the interesting movies were The Master of Ballentrae (1953) starring Errol Flynn and Roger Livesey, Ruggles of Red Gap (1935) starring Charles Laughton and Roland Young, and For the Defense (1930) starring William Powell and Kay Francis; the occasional food included a Sausage McMuffin for breakfast and a smattering of teeny tacos from Costco between naps during the afternoon. At the moment I’m mighty hungry and considering a variety of options, nearly all of them featuring a substantial quantity of pizza.

Ready for our latest Putz of the Week? Senatorial chicken-hawk extraordinaire Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced today on “Meet the Press” that President Obama’s foreign policies are “getting a lot of people killed.” When asked by host Chuck Todd what the hell are you talking about, Graham explained: “Almost 300,000 people have been killed in Syria on his watch. Hell on earth is about to descend in Syria.” This is complete horseshit, of course, but it’s cute to see Graham get his panties in a knot about foreign policy as if he actually gives any fucks about Syria. For instance, he certainly never expressed the same concern for the citizens of Iraq when George Dubya Bush lived in the White House.
Using Graham’s logic, one can only imagine how many people would have been killed by President Obama’s policies had the Republican Congress, which has blocked all of his proposed legislation, actually allowed him to have any policies to begin with.

The week ahead is packed with excitement here at Howdygram headquarters! Tomorrow is a double whammy of Martin Luther King’s Birthday and Sam’s first day back to work since December 31, I’ve got a doctor appointment on Wednesday, Sam has an appointment with a brand new dentist on Friday, and I haven’t decided yet if I want to order anything from Schwan’s this week since our freezer is still really full from last time. (I’m pondering corn dogs but please don’t mention this to Sam.)

Thank you, as always, for reading this.
