Here's Lindsey "Grahamnesty's" latest mailer (I've been recieving one a day):
I actually agree with Lindsey here. It would would be nice to have a principled, independent-minded, patriotic U.S. Senator. But why is Graham's picture above the quote?
I was expecting Jim Webb, or perhaps Chuck Hagel?
Here's the other side of Graham's latest postal propaganda:
"Conservative values" eh? Consider the first paragraph of this piece written be Quin Hillyer in last month's The American Spectator entitled " The Worst Republican Senator:"
"South Carolina's Lindsey Graham is a flop. He pretends to be a conservative, but sells out conservatives and insults them while doing so. He pretends to be effective at reaching across party lines, but the only thing he effectively does is help the other party. He inhabits the Senate seat of Strom Thurmond, legendary for great attention to his South Carolina constituents, but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet as McCain criss-crosses the country in pursuit of the presidency. He called Ted Kennedy "one of the most principled men I've ever met." In sum, in the words of conservative movement stalwart Richard Viguerie, "Lindsey Graham is part of the problem."
I couldn't have said it better myself.
