Oh man...you’re being far too kind.
But at least Lindsay Graham can.

It’s a tool designed for exactly this political situation. It’s (almost) fool proof. Just say no and there’s not a damn thing the president or senate can do about it.
...And then comes the fools.

Tennessee has a couple of RINOs who gotta go. Sadly, Corker is in for five more, but we have Lamar! in our political cross hairs.
