CHARLESTON, S.C.Talk about Southern hospitality.
Famed Democratic strategist Pat Caddell swept into South Carolina on Monday night, blistered Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, and then insulted the people who put him in office.
And he was rewarded for his bravado with a round of hearty applause and laughter.
Lindsey Graham is the effective leader of the surrender caucus of the Republican Party, Cadell proclaimed during a fiery speech before the Charleston Meeting, a monthly gathering of conservative activists hosted at the swanky Harbour Club in downtown Charleston.
And I dont know how he works with the public in South Carolina, but I saw all of the people whove endorsed him for reelection. Frankly, hes as close to a Democrat as you can get in South Carolina, he said, evoking a smattering of chuckles from the audience.
But Caddell wasnt chucklingor even smiling, for that matter. The former adviser to President Jimmy Carter, now a Fox News analyst, seemed determined to go further than just lob barbs at another feckless politician; his tirade was aimed at the voters complicit in his reelection.
Youre not going to like it, but you people are responsible for it, and you get the country you deserve because you allow these people to take you for a ride, Caddell blasted.
Dubbing Grahamwho faces reelection for a third term next yeara wimp may seem ironic at a time hes leading the charge for military intervention in Syria. But Cadells surrender remark referred to the senators unwillingness to challenge President Obama on his appointments.
Why didnt Graham put the brakes on a corrupt and radical nominee for Labor secretary or protest liberal National Labor Relations Board picks? How did Susan Rice and Samantha Power get a pass after their culpability in Benghazi, an obsession of Grahams?

LOL Thank you Pat Caddell! I am pleased that someone said what we have known all along. Graham got it, now I hope the next barb is aimed at his fiance McCain.
These are very strange and interesting times we are living in now...
“These are very strange and interesting times we are living in now...”
But fun at times. I thoroughly enjoyed posting that article!
...and thanks to you for doing so.
Now, why am I agreeing with a democrat pollster worked for - and is still working with! - a democrat administration and FOR actions by a former KGB agent and Russian dictator AGAINST a supposed US president?
See, when Hussein swore to defend “against all enemies foreign and domestic” we JUST didn’t know HE was swearing against all of what HE considers HIS enemies “foreign and domestic”!
Not “our” enemies, foreign and domestic.
I don’t remember the Cadell that was around with Carter, but I can tell you that I like the Cadell of the past few years. Democrat or not, he tells it like it is, about both sides of the aisle, and that is a good trait in anyone.
Yes, he is very honest. And that’s saying something about a democrat.
Please do it to McCain.
party affiliation aside, P. Cadell loves the country and isn’t afraid to show it.
I will bet he hasn’t voted demorat in some time.
Youre not going to like it, but you people are responsible for it, and you get the country you deserve because you allow these people to take you for a ride, Caddell blasted..
I think what Caddell is trying to say, albeit awkwardly, is take back your party and stop the GOP establishment foisting these RINOs on us.
See my tag line.
Yes, please go after J.S. McCain.
