Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

During last night’s raucous Republican debate, another failed GOP candidate was bringing the house down at a whole other venue: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who delivered a slew of great jokes at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner.

First, he had a message for women: “You’ve come a long way in 72 years. Seventy-two years ago a woman could not be part of the American experience — and if you don’t vote, that’s coming back in 2017. If I were you, I would vote.”

He then continued with a swipe at both Hillary Clinton, and at his own party: “But look how far you’ve come: The most dishonest person in America is a woman — who’s about to be president. How could that be? My party has gone bats**t crazy.”

Graham also had some choice words for his fellow senator and White House candidate Ted Cruz, who is not exactly known for the support he generates among others in the chamber.

“A good Republican would defend Ted Cruz after tonight. That ain’t happening,” he said. “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate — and the trial was in the Senate – nobody could convict you.”

Graham maybe should not have made that particular statement in public — it might be incriminating later on.

15 Responses to Endorse This: Lindsey Graham’s Tips For Voting — And Murder

  1. This is not a joke, we are already on our way to put women back in “they’re place”. GOP you have a special place in hell waiting for you.

      • And that’s especially true if you’re unfortunate enough to live in a state actually governed by the GOP which lead the nation BY FAR in being places that have been determined to be ‘The Most Miserable’ states to live in; the states with the ‘Worst Quality of Life’ and the states with the most people living on the verge of bankruptcy.

    • People who love and support the GOP may feel right at home when they get there: given that they’re essentially supporting The Party of the Devil. (What characterizes the Devil is his love for money and worldly things: exactly what characterizes the average GOP Politician who consistently puts money above even the lives of the people who may have voted him or her into office.)

  2. Lindsey says “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate — and the trial was in the Senate – nobody could convict you.”, and having said that Dylan Roof was just a loner who killed not because of incendiary rhetoric from the Right and elements to the right of the Right(shudder!), but acted on his own—how can anyone believe anything he says??
    If he were to say “good morning” that should be treated with caution.

    • I don’t know what that has to do with Dylan Roof. I actually thought that was a funny joke … Cruz being so hated by everyone in the Senate and all.

      • I have this “bad” habit of trying to put a story in a larger context. When Lindsey refers to “my” party as going “bats_ _ _t crazy” that implies he still believes in the myopic views his Party still espouses—despite the current “beauty” contestants’ bickering.
        When Lindsey referred to the murders at the church in Charleston, SC as the result of a “loner”, I knew immediately the seriously ill condition his mind is in.
        And now, he uses a description of “my” party as going berserk. Yet, I’m willing to bet that he still loves the Party with heart and soul and will still support whichever “wonderfully qualified” Republican will emerge as “Miss Republican Nominee”.

        Just saying.

    • EXACTLY! This whole Debate charade/exercise has shown the true merits of all the aspirants, whether on the Left or the Right.
      As you wisely point out—If one can’t seek consensus among one’s own “minimum” group without arguing and seeking to tear the other person(s) down, how can they expect to reach accord with a diversity of groups/opinions??

  3. To: Cruz supporters wherever you are. How can you with the straight face vote for a man who closed the government down? He doesn’t like the government at the same time he wants to lead it. Have you given yourselves a second thought whether your votes make any meaning? Please try to think again.

  4. I’m actually starting to like Graham.
    Maybe he’ll be the linchpin for gathering change in the Republican party away of Idiocy and back towards sanity once they loose the Presidential election and the Senate by large margins.
