In Dana Millbank’s Dec. 19 guest column (“GOP finds a reason to bash the budget”), Sen. Lindsey Graham is quoted as saying “We’re in a big hurry around here to show you how functional we are.”

Sen. Graham can rest assured that no rational adult in the United States believes that any part of the Congress is functional, or in danger of becoming so in the near future.
