Sen. Lindsey Graham’s mock indignation over an innocuous observation by White House communications aide Kelly Sadler is worth a chuckle (“Lindsey Graham wants White House apology for Kelly Sadler’s ‘disgusting’ John McCain remark,” Web, May 13). We’re a nation that is being riven by the hyper-emotional, and it’s not just by a traumatized teen-ager or the usual suspects who intentionally misconstrue their opponents’ remarks for a perceived advantage in the polls.

I won’t insult Mr. Graham’s intelligence or my own by showering him with the usual platitudes and saying this is time for reflection, healing or hand-holding. Nor will I insult his intelligence and purport to know what Mr. McCain wants, but I will tell him what I want: I want him to shut up.
