After months of Mark Sanford hiking the Appalachian mistress and using state funds to do so, then lying and crying about it, followed by Jim Asshat DeMint’s comments about breaking the president, and Joe You Lie Wilson’s Tourette-like outburst, I began to agree with Jon Stewart, who said South Carolina has usurped Florida as the most effed-up state in the union.
So, imagine my surprise when Lindsey Graham, yes, of South Carolina, actually said something that borders on common sense.
Lindsey Graham: “If you asked me if the president of the United States is a socialist, I would say no. I think he’s an American liberal, that’s what I think he is. You know, Ted Kennedy was an American liberal, but we found ways to work together….I am not going to give into sentiments that I think degrade the office of the president and that degrade the debate and the culture of our country. So if you come up to me calling the president a socialist, a Muslim, you’re talking to the wrong guy.”
WTF? Common sense from South Carolina! Who knew?
