Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-Cthulhu) Has Panic-Attack: We Will "...All Get Killed Back Here At Home!"

Sen. Lindsey Graham , the reliably hysterical other half of the comedy duo of McCain & Graham, masters of the art of deranged hyperbole and risible, fact-free allegations, lost his few remaining marbles on national television on Sunday.
