Sen. Graham: “My Party Has Gone Bats**t Crazy”

South Carolina Senator and former Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham called the GOP “batshit crazy” during the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner on Thursday night.

The annual dinner is meant as a lighthearted affair, where politicians and media personalities show their comedic talent. And none did it better this year than Graham.

On Ted Cruz

“If you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you.”

“I know exactly when Ted is going to drop out of the race: March 12. That’s Canadian week at Myrtle Beach.”

On Ben Carson

“The nice guy is Ben Carson. He tried to kill his cousin, hit his mother in the head with a hammer. He’s the one we all like. How did I lose to these guys?”

On Marco Rubio

“The Secret Service’s main job if he’s president is to keep him hydrated.”


USA 2016 Memoribilia

I am on my way to a conference on American politics for a weekend filled with talks and workshops about the 2016 election. But it’s not like you could escape it anyway! 

Take a look at these election knick-knacks I just found at an “America” store at the airport.


There is the Hillary nutcracker…


… and the Trump toilet paper. 


In fact, there are only two candidates the merchandise doesn’t make fun of: Bernie Sanders…

… and – surprisingly – Ben Carson.


And it wasn’t only the “America” store that went full political. 

I took this snapshot at the airport bookstore – not sure what Sanders would say to being placed to closely to Henry Kissinger, whom he has recently attacked.
