.....he says if he hadn't gotten vaccine, symptoms would have been worse......yadda....yadda...


Lindsey Graham tests positive for Covid-19 and has had 'flu-like symptoms' despite being vaccinated

.....Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced Monday that he has tested positive for Covid-19 despite being vaccinated and has experienced "flu-like symptoms," but said that he now has only "mild symptoms" and is very glad he had been vaccinated because "without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now."

"I was just informed by the House physician I have tested positive for #COVID19 even after being vaccinated. I started having flu-like symptoms Saturday night and went to the doctor this morning," he tweeted.

Graham wrote in a follow-up tweet, "I feel like I have a sinus infection and at present time I have mild symptoms. I will be quarantining for ten days. I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse."

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin entertained a small group of senators on his houseboat over the weekend -- and Graham was in attendance, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Manchin's office declined to comment on the attendance on his boat.

"Sen. Manchin is fully vaccinated and following the CDC guidelines for those exposed to a COVID-positive individual," Manchin spokeswoman Sam Runyon told CNN in a statement.

Breakthrough infections remain rare and more than 99.99% of people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 have not had a breakthrough case resulting in hospitalization or death, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The announcement from Graham comes amid the spread of the Delta variant of Covid-19, which has prompted the recommendation of new safety guidelines.

The CDC recently changed its masking recommendations as it grows more concerned over the Delta variant, urging vaccinated people in certain areas of the country to resume wearing masks indoors in public areas.

The US House reinstated its mask mandate last week. The attending physician for Congress has also advised Senate leaders that it is recommended to wear masks in indoor spaces when other individuals are present, according to a letter obtained by CNN. Almost all Democratic senators have been seen by CNN wearing masks again.

Asked last week if he plans to wear a mask amid new CDC guidance, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell did not respond as he walked to the floor.



what.....ev....er......?!

I really wish they’d stop calling these infections breakthroughs. No one ever claimed you couldn’t get infected.

it breaks through the vax - seems like the perfect word. Does the vax offer resistance? Yes, it does, so covid must break through the resistance to infect someone. Maybe 'climbs over the wall' would be better, but that's a mouthful.

The problem is not so much the word (although I'm not a big fan, either) it's more thr point that people thought getting the vax made them super-human, and that this was all that they needed to do. The percentages of 94% effective, etc. just added to the confusion.

Just look at the influenza vaccine for a comparison of what it means to be "immune."

Sinus mucosal infections are likely common and will be until herd immunity is reached and the virus mainly goes away. Since the best test involves a nasal swab, mostly asymptomatic infections are bound to show up amongst the vaccinated which may be why sports figures, etc. are relatively frequently testing positive. Once a nasal spray vaccine is on the market those infections will also go away.

The senator is the first in Congress the Senate to have a breakthrough infection. I suppose we can hope he is in the .01% of vaccinated people who end up with a more severe case.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

But he is likely surrounded by non-vaccinated constituents.

Finally, some positive news from Lindsey Graham. I had thought his deal with the Devil would have shielded him from Covid.
A friendly reminder, the Devil is always in the details.

I think when a person is as toxic as he is, his immune system has got to be compromised.

Like this quote:


The second worst is that of the Azgoths of Kria. During a recitation by their poet master Grunthos the Flatulent of his poem "Ode to a Small Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Midsummer Morning" four of his audience died of internal haemorrhaging and the president of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos was reported to have been "disappointed" by the poem's reception, and was about to embark on a reading of his 12-book epic entitled "My Favourite Bathtime Gurgles" when his own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save humanity, leapt straight up through his neck and throttled his brain

I wonder.. seems pretty convenient. I could see him claiming to have it then playing off how it was no big deal and obviously vaccination isn't effective.

He's already said "I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse."

Of course he's said lots of things only to deny he ever said them.

I hope Manchin was right on top and in control of Graham doing any shenanigans on his houseboat.
