It is statements like this that make one wonder what has taken over the Republican barn. Have they all completely LOST IT? Including respected minds like Senator Graham? Even without carrying out an in depth search of Senator Chuck Hagel, simply checking Wikipedia you will find the following:

A recipient of two Purple Hearts while an infantry squad leader in the Vietnam War, Hagel returned home to start careers in business and politics. He made millions as co-founder of Vanguard Cellular, and served as president of the McCarthy Group, an investment banking firm, and CEO of American Information Systems Inc., a computerized voting machine manufacturer. A member of the Republican Party, Hagel was first elected to the Senate in 1996. He was reelected in 2002, and retired in 2008.Kindly note the following facts about the senator:

- He was a Business man, co founding one company and later becoming the president of an investment banking firm.
