Timing is Everything Dept: Lindsey Graham tweets 'joke' about John McCain dying in Syria

nice glass of stfu

I just got back after spending the day with my family, scanned a few tweets to catch up, and ran across this one from my Twitter pal Christine Pelosi, totally unaware of the context:

pelosi tweet graham joke

Then I saw this:

graham tweet Syria

First rule of comedy: It has to be funny, not only to the joke teller, but to the audience. That's kind of mandatory.

Wisecracking about a diplomatic mission now makes your obsession and accusations about the Benghazi Not-Scandal off limits, Linds. You blew it. You were tasteless, you showed terrible judgment, and your timing was atrocious.

Call me crazy, but I was under the impression that Memorial Day is the time to honor the sacrifices of our amazing military and dedicated officials, as opposed to say, cheapening them.

Lindsey apparently didn't get the non-edited memo.
