Ran across this gem over at Lawyers, Guns and Money, here. Lindsey Graham, the seemingly mild-mannered senator from South Carolina--who has to be the biggest hawk in the Congress--has a way of annoying me every time I see him on TV or read about him. He really is a vile human being.
Which was proven a couple of weeks ago. Remember when Mitt Romney was caught on a secret video made at a private function, talking dismissively about the "47 percent"?
Well, Mr. Graham was similarly speaking at a private event:
According to the CNN report Wednesday, Graham confirmed the veracity of the recordings. Graham was speaking to the Hibernian Society of Charleston, a charitable group with an all-male membership.In the recording according to CNN, Graham is heard saying: “I’m trying to help you with your tax status. I’m sorry the government’s so f——- up. If I get to be president, white men in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency.”
Author of the post Erik Loomis then observed:
And if there’s one thing we know, it’s that this is Lindsey Graham speaking from his heart, such as it is. I have no doubt a Lindsey Graham presidency would be excellent for elite white men. And horrible for everyone else.
Senator Graham really is a vile human being. Maybe if I write that sentence enough times he'll see the light and change. Nope, if we lefties are annoyed he'll merely feel vindicated that he's doing it "right."
