From Graham’s first or second sentence, it was clear he’s a Yea vote.

While he’s almost certainly correct, I still have to interject that I just can’t stand that man.

He may simply be stating a fact. The best that the GOP can hope for is to keep her bottled up in committee.

Regardless of his vote on the racist for the SC. I think South Carolina needs to ditch Lindsay Graham. He becomes a leftist each and every day.

Sen. Lindsey Graham—this little bedwetter has as much credibility as Jumping Jim Jeffords.

I view him as a default vote with the Rats unless McCain tells him its O.K. to vote with the Republicans.

Lindsey Graham is a POS. 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. South Carolina needs to flush this POS at first opportunity.

Yep, Senator Goober actually said that, but unfortunately he's probably right. I don't know what we / the GOP can do to stop her, unfortunately.

The same way, and for the same reason, they put Carol Mostly Fraud on it during her time in the Senate.

I have no affiliation for these members of the a party that I have supported mostly in the past. However, I see more & more conservatives leaving the party. It's because of the likes of this moron.

Interesting that you could nothing but spittle hate toward Senator Graham, without addressing anything he said regarding the racist nominee. I suppose this post will now prompt your further idiocy, off topic, venting your rotten spleen. Carry on, doofus. Ignore the real issue of the day, the Puerto Rican racist leftist Obama nominee to the highest court in the land. It is within your exposed character to have no input on the issue and exploding with hate toward Senator Graham.

He was even more emboldened after his big win in 2006, after his pitiful performance during the immigration battles of 2004 - 2006. If that behavior won’t get him voted out, then he is safe to do just about anything.

"Even worse is his Eddie Haskell act."

One thing for sure, it is all an act by most of these guys in congress.

They really are looking out for the best interest of themselves and not this nation.

We are on a bullet train to socialism while these piss brains wave the american flag in our faces.

A new party has to emerge. If it is the republican party, we cannot include most of these weasels that claim to be republican.

Just hoping Palin does not buy into their BS.

Well posed, Jeff. It is time for the rea; Republican conservatives to stand up against the perspective this racist nominee represent from this Marxist regime of Czars (33 now working for the Oval Office slug), traitors like Leahy, and crooks like Schumer.

The judiciary committee becomes a klown posse when democrats run it, with the prime clown in the chief chair. Leahy is dripping with condescension toward any Republicn, takes every opportunity to try and blunt anything said by a Republican questioner, and he is a proven traitor to the national interests as a criminal leaker of state secrets.
