A Tale Of Two Republican Parties.
On one side we have the party Conservatives. On the other we have the RINOs. You’ll notice there is no middle category here. I think that all but the densest, tunnel-visioned and hide-bound ‘old guard’ Republicans have figured out that the Patriot Movement (what they and the lame-stream press love to call ‘the Tea Baggers’) is no flash in the pan, and has just grown | Read More »

The National Republicans Dig In Their Heels on Fiorina
With friends like these rallying around Carly Fiorina, she doesn’t really need many enemies.”Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who has done more than any Democrat to keep climate legislation alive this year” went out to California the other day to campaign for Carly Fiorina.After being battered for the ridiculous Demon Sheep web ad, Fiorina probably could use the help, but with Dana Milbank praising Graham around | Read More »
Fiorina: the obvious choice-of the old guard GOP Establishment
With conservatives in an uproar over not only what they see as the sinister antics of the left in America led by B.H.Obama, but also the old country club GOP types who lent lightning to the monster by refusing to stand tall when it was really needed, why would a candidate court the latter in a critical election year? It seems conservatives are taken even | Read More »
Sweet little Lindsey Graham has been left on the verge of tears over health care reform. No, not because it might pass, but because it might ruin his bi-partisan effort to impose cap and trade on Americans.The Democrats, intent on taking over 1/6th of the American economy are also intent on totally destroying another vital part of the economy — energy production. Sweet little Lindsey | Read More »
US Sen. Lindsey Graham censured by SC county GOP
I’d really like to see more of this! Republicans who work against their party’s or constituents wishes should face a very public penalty. Though I doubt that Lindsey Graham will take this to heart right away, I hope it comes back to bite him in the butt come election time. Nice job Charleston County South Carolina GOP!
DeMint endorses DeVore, Fiorina panics
We won the big statewide races yesterday, and now it’s back to work trying to win some more. The California Senate primary may not be until June, but when we’re faced with an entrenched incumbent like Barbara Boxer, we need all the lead time we can get. Up until now, the DC types have all been supporting Carly Fiorina in our primary, even though she | Read More »
The Seduction Of Lindsey Graham
According to most conservatives in South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has officially gone over to the dark side. Under the guise of ‘bipartisanship,’ Graham has signed on to one of the left’s most ambitious plans to impose a socialist agenda in America – government control of the formerly free market through implementation of cap-and trade, the 1,400 plus page Waxman-Markey bill approved earlier this | Read More »
Dear Senator [fill in blank] : Are you a crook, an idiot, or did you vote against Obamacare?
It’s really that simple. Obamacare has already been rejected by America. It is manifestly outside the legitimate purview of the government in a free country. It is fiscally irresponsible on an epic level. The “bill” being passed around in the Senate is a blank slate to be signed at the bottom, with the details to be filled out later by Democrats, likely by people whose | Read More »
Sotomayor Sessions Un-Hatch Hatch [updated]
For the first time ever, GOP Judiciary Committee veteran will vote against a Supreme Court nominee South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham is now the leader of a, thankfully smaller, Republican group of Senators equating the consequences of presidential elections with repeal of advise and consent clause and fealty to Oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. When Justice David Souter announced his retirement in May, this column | Read More »
Graham must defer to Constitution, not Sotomayor’s causes
Yes Lindsey, elections have consequences, including those of U.S. Senators and not just Presidents. And shouldn’t the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, its amendments and the Oath to uphold it have consequences too? [This is part three of DeVine Law series during Sotomayor nomination hearings. Parts one, two and columns prior to the hearings are here.] I speak, of course, of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) | Read More »
The “Pretend you’re a Liberal MSM reporter (and looking to spin a story)” Challenge/Experiment

Lindsey Graham wounded by Sotomayor’s hurtful remarks.
Senator Lindsey Graham goes there: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told “FOX News Sunday” he wasn’t buying President Obama’s attempt to walk back his Supreme Court nominee’s controversial statement from 2001. Obama said Friday that given the chance Sotomayor would have “restated” that comment, and that she was merely trying to express how her experiences give her perspective on others’ hardships. “She didn’t say that at | Read More »
So-Called Conservatives Parody of Former Self
Image via Wikipedia A conservative once wrote: A substantial portion of the conservative movement has become a parody of its former self. Once home to distinguished intellectuals and men of letters, it now tolerates and even encourages anti-intellectualism and jingoism that would have embarrassed earlier generations of conservative thinkers. There are still some good and decent conservative leaders to be found, and a portion of | Read More »
SC pols fight over republican brand (Sanford vs. Graham)
My apologies if this has already been posted. In the first video below, Lindsey Graham is seen giving a speech at the SC Republican Convention. In the speech, he has this to say: “I am not a libertarian. If you are, you’re welcome to vote for me and help this party, but we’re not going to build this party around libertarian ideals.” That is an | Read More »
McCain/Graham Are Right on THIS one, Anyway!
After several years of missteps and dunderheaded RINOist policy proscriptions, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham got one right for a change. The unctuous pair published an Op Ed in the Wall Street Journal on May 6 that is spot on in its analysis of the dangerous road down which Barack Obama and the Democrats are taking us as far as the war on terror | Read More »
