Cranky US Senator Promises Kiev Lapdog Tasty Anti-Russia Treats — But Only If It Stops Yapping

Lindsey Graham is such a grumpy old warmonger that he doesn't even enjoy listening to anti-Russia rants anymore

Life is about enjoying the simple pleasures. A comfy chair. A good book. Homemade cookies. Fanatical, anti-Russia tirades.

But some people are so miserable and awful that they are unable to find joy in these universal symbols of good living.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham declared 2017 to be “a year of kicking Russia in the ass". But apparently he is now too old and cranky to enjoy discussing how this "ass kicking" will occur.

During a Senate "hearing" about how much money Ukraine and other brave countries will need in order to continue defending the world against Russia, Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs, was actually asked by Graham to limit his Russia ranting to five minutes.

Five minutes!

What? Lindsey doesn't want to hear a Ukrainian whine about Russia? This is not the Lindsey Graham we know and love.

The good stuff starts around the 0:35 mark:

Best part? After Graham politely asks Klimkin to shut his trap, someone in the background says "where's the checkbook?"

"We'll give you money — just please shut up."

All the fun and joy has been sucked out of Lindsey's soul.
