Senator Lindsey Graham HAS No Cachet (Or Sense, Either)

...and he'd better stay out of Syria while I administer a little
spelling,  vocabulary and pronunciation lesson:

(1) If you say "cachet" (pronounced cashay), you mean
something or someone has earned prestige, admiration,
distinction. P.S.: it's French, like every word in American
English meant to impress but often does not;

(2) If you use "cache" (pronounced cash), you mean
a store of something, often hidden or put by, like a large
amount of weapons. [No doubt Lindsey meant to say item (2)
but blundered by saying "cachet".];

(3) If you say "cash" and your context immediately
refers to money, everyone will know what you mean,
even including Mr. Graham.

It is NOT weak to save blood and treasure, ours
and theirs. Perhaps "prudent" is a concept quite beyond
loquacious Lindsey. It IS weak to attempt to make
political points on the backs of our military and any
Syrians while you risk no danger of any sort yourself,
Senator Graham.

Ironically, then: Mr. Graham has no cachet, or
sense, either.

  1. Often the world stage seems like an episode of The Rockford files or Charlies Angels( Charlie's Angels. The real great classic one from the nineteen seventies) However this is real life . Life , death , blood.

    You hit the nail on the head again Lady Amber! Thank you.
