Update from Miss Dolly

I don't know anything about Lindsey Graham's sexuality, nor do I want to. All I know is when he talks it sounds like Dolly Parton in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

You know, where she tells Ed Earl that it just won't work out, him being a sheriff and her being a madam and all. Or where she says she couldn't be a ballerina 'cuz she'd have two black eyes. And I think Lindsey has embraced his inner Dolly.


You see Miss Lindsey now says Trump has established 2 red lines - 1: attack us (duh!) or 2: Develop an ICBM that can hit the continental USA with a miniaturized nuclear warhead that survives reentry.

quote
“There are two scenarios where we would go to war with North Korea," the South Carolina Republican said "CBS This Morning." "If they attack Guam or some other American interest or our allies, or if they try to keep developing an ICBM with a nuclear weapon. Graham said Trump will "never allow North Korea to have an ICBM missile that can hit America with a nuclear weapon on top.”

Now this second one seems very specific, doesn't it. That is because early this year, President Trump had defined things that North Korea could not do (although he didn't call them red-lines) as (1) develop an ICBM that can hit the continental USA (that's now done), (2) miniaturize a nuclear warhead (that's now done too), (3) keep testing firing missals (also done), (4) test a nuclear bomb (check) and (5) keep issuing threats (yep - done yesterday).

So our red line is something that cannot be demonstrated without an actual attack. Okay. That's some strength there Miss Dolly Lindsey.
