oh wretched Americans that we are?
No, no, no, FBI, you've got Peak Stupidity all wrong! We do not exclaim this in the sense of Henry the 2nd of olde England. It's 850 years later. In this current more civil era, we don't use such inciting statements. We are simply referring to next term's GOP primary, past the current era in fact, in March of AD 2026.
However, the Senior Senator from South Carolina is under the impression that it's perfectly OK for a sitting United States Senator to call for the assassination of the leader of a foreign country. Our country is not at war with Russia either, however that's defined these days. The country is not a threat to us.
It's been over 3 decades since Russia has meant the Communist USSR. Since that time, the Neocons have done their best to box the country and its long-term leader into a corner. Vladimir Putin, no matter what you think of him personally, should have been dealt with diplomatically. All the old Soviets and Chairman Mao were dealt with diplomatically.* Yet, the American Neocons are drunk with power and war.
These 100 big shots have been in a high position in the one true military superpower from 1989 till recently, Senators such as Miss Lindsey (along with his gratefully** dead colleague Juan McAmnesty) are used to being the collective neighborhood bully. This Feral Government bully could say and do anything with everyone else scared to strike back. It never lasts though. One day, some kid will up and slug the bully in the face. If this kid ends up being Vladimir Putin, running a country with 10's of thousands of nukes, we're gonna get a big collective black eye.
The olde Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 12th century was annoying due to his excommunicating the living out of everyone. Senator Graham, with his multiple attempts at immigration amnesty for millions and his support for American wars of aggression around the globe, is much worse a character than Thomas Becket.
It's probably much too late in the game for voting as a solution, but, just for old time's sake here, will no South Carolina electorate ever deliver us from this meddlesome piece of crap? We don't need Royal Knights headed to Canterbury this time. We just need conservative South Carolinians to get out to the voting booth!
Nah, the only people who can fix this are the South Carolinian people. Easy to say, hard to do, since hardly anybody votes in the primaries. If you don't want to live in darkness, be poor, and then live in darkness again, step up to the booth, Sandlappers!
To doctor up another line from the olde Henry II/Becket saga, from contemporary monk Edward Grimm: "What miserable drones and traitors have we voted in and promoted in our GOP who let their people be treated with such shameful contempt by a light-in-the-loafers Senator!"
PS: The phrase in the title is the popularized version of what Henry II is said to have said. It comes from Romans 7:24 - - "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?"
* The shoe-banging was from the other side.
** For Americans, that is.
