The Consequences of Lindsey Graham

“Elections have consequences,” insists South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, announcing he will vote to put liberal Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court.


Are there any South Carolinians who thought in voting for Lindsey Graham they were electing someone who would stand fast for conservative principle? By opposing liberal Court nominees? Because, well, elections have consequences? And, you know, you vote for a conservative Senator because you expect him or her to uphold the principles on which they campaigned?

The consequence of voting for Graham, obviously, is that he will not do as promised.

Sheer, utter dishonesty is always an amazing sight to behold.
