Yeah, I’d be willing to work a job where I get to tell all my family and friends that I have to submit to a bedcheck at 3am.
Of course, we all know that this isn’t a serious proposal, it’s just one of Senator Closet’s fantasies.
He’s pissed that Columbian hookers are moving in on his turf.

Only if we get to do the same for Congressmen.

and in other news breaking from sad bitter hacks
I predict many asshole “finger quotes” and enough footage of bitter crankitiude to revive this issue
@Jim, Foolish Literalist:
If the cunts wouldn’t plaster on makeup like trollops…

I bet Lindsey would be willing to fight for the pole position on that job. ;)

No doubt Lindsey Graham would love to hike up gramma’s gingham dress he loves to wear and turn those naughty secret service agents over his knee for a good bare-bottom spanking.

And personally have the men’s private parts inspected by a Senator.
Maybe, even one from SC, who’ll consider this a ‘call to duty.’
@4tehlulz: LOL. FTW. (blog eated my earlier LOL. FTW).
Republicans are the most un-self aware people who ever existed. At least Santorum was aware he had teh Google problem – has Lindsay Graham ever googled himself? I guess if he had any shred of a clue how ridiculous he was, he wouldn’t be a Republican. They’re all clinical and should be locked up.
Did you really need to use this level of profanity to get your point across?
Oh dear. Like the bedchecks would make things better.
I do have some concerns, though, that the pack of security folks who went to Cartegena put themselves at risk. If they had run into bad guys, they would have had no defense against infiltration, information extraction, or outright physical harm. Apparently, we need some adults in that unit.

This is really making a mountain out of a molehill. Whoring it up is a feature in American foreign service jobs. It’s used as a recruiting point in many of them. And the best places to get duty or travel to are the ones with hot and legal prostitution, great party scenes, or tons of drunk and easy targets. Government agencies make no effort to deny that this is the case. In fact your superiors pretty much tell you “oh yeah, this place is nuts”. Heck in the Navy if you didn’t score tail in every country you stopped in something was wrong with you.
Graham was in the military so he should know the deal. The pay sucks, your civilian bosses are always morons, but nothing is better than a 5 buck Thai hooker and 1 buck drinks all day every day.
Lindsey, this is very simple. You have a monitor put tape on the outside of the door, between the door and the frame, over the crack. If the tape is broken in the morning, someone snuck out. You may then feel free to shoot them for violating curfew.
@Steve in DC: Well, I did a stint in Moslem Albania as part of the UN oil embargo against Serbia back in the day, and YESSSSS! Even the Dip Passport didn’t stop us. I think it was Cronkite who, watching the insanity after the liberation of Paris, said “If a guy can’t get laid down there today, he’s not a man.”
@Steve in DC:
Apparently part of the pre-briefing was supposed to include, “Guys, always pay your hoooker.” If the idiot had just paid up at the agreed price instead of trying to short-change her, there would have been no scandal and no one ever would have known.
But, no, he had to be an asshole and try to underpay what he promised so she rightfully got the cops involved. How stupid do you have to be not to realize that if you agree to get a legal service at a specific price, you have to pay the agreed-on price? Christ.

“If they won’t fuck, they won’t fight”
Of course, in Lindsay’s case, it’s his bunkmate, not some hooker.
What a vile sack of shit he is.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist:
IIRC, during the 2008 debates there was a controversy because McCain scoffed at the idea that a woman would ever need an abortion because of her “health” (yes, he used the scarequotes). I won’t be surprised if he makes an asshole of himself yet again over this whole issue.
There is an old lawyer’s joke about a new secretary misunderstading the phrase res ipsa loquitur on the dictaphone as
Raise the hips and lock the door.
Which actually works well for this post.
Well, that goes without saying ;)
Is this the “Three AM phone call” that Clinton’s campaign was talking about? Isn’t this something President Obama should be handling?
@Steve in DC:
While this does adequately describe Washington D.C. from the perspective of many elected officials, staff, pundits and journalists, I’m not sure that it really supports your point that this is a molehill, not a mountain.
In any event, if a Secret Service agent cannot exercise discretion and better judgement during a frickin’ presidential visit, I can’t offer much in the way of pity or understanding.
@Linda Featheringill: Secret Service Presidential away details have a long culture and history of making drinky sexy funtime before big Presidential events. JFK’s detail partied ’til dawn at an “underwear bar” in Dallas the night before his assassination: http://bit.ly/JojNl2
This exemplifies a common problem (and a BIG problem) with Praetorian Guards throughout history. Do you expect the President to gainsay the people who hold his life in their hands every minute of every day?

He’s paraphrasing McCain.
One wonders what information a 3 am bed check of L Graham might turn up.
Take it up with the war hero, not me.
Take it Easy! I got comments dumped because of “Swish-boating” here before.
I thought it was BS, but I guess those are the rules.
