Friends like Senator Lindsey Graham are hard to find

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

Senator Lindsey Graham (R) South /Carolina - may have a career as a satirist

Although Senator Lindsey Graham is a familiar Republican politician, but he's also proving to be quite a good comedian. He's especially funny or, at least, ironically inconsistent, as he seems to be raising money to help his new best friend Senator Ted Cruz, who;s running for the Republican nomination for president. 

Indeed, Graham seems resigned to a Republican presidential loss in the November election, even as he shrugged and asked morning news host Mika Brezinski if she'd like to give money to Ted Cruz?

It's like throwing  money in a dumpster, in my opinion.
The New York Post reports:
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said his party has gone “bat—” crazy as he mercilessly mocked the entire 2016 presidential field, even joking that one could get away with murdering Ted Cruz — if it happened in the Senate.  (No one would convict you.)

Graham, who dropped out of the presidential race in December, urged his party to “do a little soul-searching” in his joke-fest Thursday night at the Washington Press Club Foundation’s 72nd Congressional Dinner.

He went on his tear while the remaining Republican candidates clashed in a debate in Houston.

Moreover, he turned self-deprecating by noting that the dinner was a “good reason not to watch the Republican debate — yet another one I have not been in.”

He then targeted Cruz, the Texas senator who is unpopular among his colleagues.

“A good Republican would defend Ted Cruz after tonight,” he said. “That ain’t happening. … If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.”

He also made fun of Cruz’s upbringing in Canada, where he was born — which Donald Trump has argued disqualifies him from the high office.

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

To use a cliche, to have political friends like Senator Lindsey Graham a person doesn't need any enemies. Well, at least humor is involved, regardless of whether or not it's appreciated by the targets of Senator Graham's quick wit. (Likely not...)

It seems like Senator Graham will not be voting in the 2016 presidential election because he is adamant about not voting for Hillary Clinton.  Although Graham appears to be reluctantly raising money for Senator "Cruz to loose", who is running for the GOP nomination, he believes his candidacy will not succeed.  In fact, rather than support Cruz, instead, Graham says Governor John Kasich is the best candidate to run as a Republican.

Governor John Kasich (R) of Ohio is the preferred GOP presidential candidate for Senator Graham, but he's raising money to help Senator Ted Cruz.  "Who's on first?"
Nevertheless, he continues to ask people to give money to the Senator Ted Cruz campaign.  "Who;s on first?" 

This convoluted comedy with Senator Graham is hardly a way for Republicans to present their crumbling political base with a sense of leadership or confidence.  

Saturday Night Live, of course, has plenty of satire to choose from for their weekly hilarious comedy skits and they don't even have to pay script writers- just call up Senator Lindsey Graham, instead. Friends like Senator Lindsey Graham are, indeed, hard to find because, they are more like enemies.
