Reposted article at Spectator.org. Every bit as relevant today as then.
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."
What, for example, could possibly have possessed Graham, in April of 2006, to write an essay for Time magazine about the virtues of Hillary Clinton? He called her "a smart, prepared, serious senator." She is "sought out by her colleagues to form legislative partnerships." She has managed to "build unusual political alliances with...conservatives."
He praises liberals, but reserves particular venom for conservatives who disagree with him. The most infamous example came at a speech to the utterly radical Hispanic group La Raza -- it was bad enough that he spoke to them, much less...

Hey, SC voters! Can we primary this guy next time around? Maybe, if we're successful with McConnell, the SC voters will be more encouraged to ditch this guy next time.
lol I did the SAME thing.
Yes. S.C. Primary voters, do us a big favor please?
Graham is crackers, remove him.
“...but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet...”
At least he doesn’t have to run, because McDork has his nose gorilla glued to the Obamadork’s Obamahole.
As a man and as a senator Graham compares to Strom Thurmond as a Daisy Red Ryder compares to a Barrett .50 caliber.
I Assure you he is not going back to DC as a US Senator in 2015.
The Worst Republican Senator
so many choices (beside Linny Graham ):
If it DOESN'T look like a duck...or quack like a duck...
Repeal and Replace.
The worst republican U.S. senator is Mark Kirk, of Illinois. He’s more liberal than many Democrats. His rating from Planned Parenthood is 100%, and his rating from Gun Owners of America is 0%. He frequently votes for unconstitutional pork barrel spending. In 2009, he voted for the cap & trade bill, which had many tax rate increases.
Don’t leave out our two POS senators Chambliss and Isakson from GA.
AZ should start their plans to dump McLame. Then, there’s Boner, Ryan, Cantor, and the list goes on.
Linda had a LOT of competition, but STILL came out as the queen of the pagent!!!!
If only Trey Gowdy would run...a real conservative, unlike Graham. However, I’ve heard that Gowdy has said he will only serve three terms and return to South Carolina. Damn shame, if true. We could use more like him in Washington.
It’s easier this way.
That you ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Jeff Sessions.
In that order.
That rest of them can go to Hell.
I think he is up for re-election this year.
even though Lisa Murkowski is awfully stiff competition
