So Lindsay Graham and Rand Paul got into a bit of an argument on the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday about the rights of detained terrorist suspects that got kind of colorful:
In case you can’t access the video, Graham suggested that Gitmo detainees were “crazy bastards” who didn’t deserve any rights. And Paul objected that a “crazy bastard” standard for denying people due process sent the Constitution down a pretty slippery slope.
As I happens, I’m with Paul on the merits, but in general find it pretty amusing whenever Republican senators debate other people’s sanity.
