Lindsey Graham Is the Saddest Story in Washington
The New York Times ^ | Oct. 6, 2018 | Frank Bruni

Posted on 10/07/2018 5:52:11 AM PDT by Trump20162020

His fight for Brett Kavanaugh completed his transformation into Donald Trump’s slobbering manservant.

The battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court was an especially ugly episode of a reality-show presidency that degrades almost everyone swept up in it, and many characters stagger away from it looking worse than ever.

That’s Senator Lindsey Graham you see at the head of the pack. That’s Graham you hear talking and talking and talking some more, in committee rooms and on stages and before the television cameras that he rushes to the way a toddler chases soap bubbles. His words are whichever ones guarantee a major role and a powerful patron, which means that these days he sounds like a more articulate echo of his golfing buddy: Donald Trump.

That wouldn’t, by itself, be cause to dwell on him. Washington is lousy with lackeys, and not even the maddest of kings thins their ranks.

But Graham is special. He really is. I can’t think of another Republican whose journey from anti-Trump outrage to pro-Trump obsequiousness was quite so illogical or half as sad, and his conduct during the war over Kavanaugh completed it. For the president he fought overtime, he fought nasty and he fought without nuance.

Stop pandering to the Left, Lindsey! They will turn on you in a heartbeat.

So maybe Lindsey won’t be so hung up on amnesty now that he sees who he has been associating with

I would consider it a good thing to be hated by the NYT. BTW, the hate is strong with this one...

Lindsey should wear this article proudly, as if it were a piece of jewelry.

Unlike the lefties who are soooo nuanced in their 24/7 attacks on President Trump.

Looks like the love affair between the progressives and Graham is over.

Lindsey Graham is no longer under the thumb of John McCain.

He seems to have grown a set, and is standing up to the leftist and media bullying.

So, of course, the NYT attempts to denigrate him.

The NYT is a demonstration that colleges are failing.
Big time.
If that writer were a science major equivalent, they’d be writing a support article for the Flat Earth Society.
And, of course, an article about the latest disaster which occurred due to human caused glow-bull warm....er...climate change.

Commie fags get ornery, especially when they forget to remove the gerbil from their rectum.

It is truly 1984, black is white, up is down, the nyslimes is beating up on linda and I'm defending him, WTF?

It's only 8:55 AM and after a Bloody Mary, I'm spiking my covefefe with cheap bourbon.

Since I'm not gonna watch any feetsball today, and I've been to early Mass, I'm too tired to do any real work, I think I'll just get mellow and ROTFLAMO.

What a wonderful life.

MAGGGGGGGGGGA. {sorry about the GGGGGs, but I stutter when I get excited:)}

The New York Times and Frank Bruni can rant and rave all they want. The Democrat Party has self-destructed internally led by the losers, Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.

By the way has anyone seen the supposed saviors, Obama, Clinton, Biden, etc. of the Democrat Party on the political stump campaigning as POTUS, Donald J. Trump does every week? They are all absent on purpose!!!

Go, Trump, Go, GOP, Go, GOTV...Get Out The Vote, Go, MAGA......politically destroy the entire Democrat Party this coming election day, November 6, 2018 or earlier.

Graham is now a stud.

And here's the face of this backwards, hateful propaganda piece.

I like the new Lindsey Graham. Can we keep him?

Did he really take a smiling selfie with a shrieking harpy standing behind him?

That's classic!
