Oblivious Quote of the Day

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC):
We can go over there and help them build their infrastructure up.  One of the problems I have from leading from behind is when a day like this comes we don’t have the infrastructure in place that we could have.

Is he talking about some remote corner of America with unsafe roads, crumbling bridges, and outdated schools?  No, he's talking going over to LIBYA.  Why?

Let’s get in on the ground. There is a lot of money to be made in the future in Libya. A lot of oil to be produced. Let’s get on the ground and help the Libyan people establish a democracy and a functioning economy based on free market principles. ... We need to get teams on the ground now that can assist this government to make sure that this stuff doesn’t fall into wrong hands.

That would be non-American hands, by the way.
