Lindsey Graham on politics and marriage (hint: take his advice in one area, not the other)

[Senator Lindsey] Graham explained his relationship with Obama by saying, “I’m not married, but I think marriages work this way. That’s the way life is. You kick their ass one day and you’ll work with them the next. If you can’t do two things at once, don’t get into politics.

That, I say, is as brilliant a description of politics as it is a perverse view of marriage.
