Why all this liberal love for our senior senator?
Graham is a supporter and cheerleader of most of the liberal agenda. He supports cap-and-trade, President Obama’s judicial nominees and National Security Agency surveillance on American citizens, while opposing key conservative initiatives such as tort reform.
Graham’s support for amnesty for illegal aliens is a wonderfully delicious morsel for his liberal friends. Passage of such legislation will guarantee Democratic majorities for generations and they know it – even as Graham turns a blind eye to the implications.
Liberals also love Graham’s arrogantly condescending attitude towards his fellow Republicans. To Graham, his opponents in the GOP are “angry white guys” and “bigots.” To Republicans who disagree with him he thunders: “If you don’t like me, there’s the door.” It’s all beautiful music to liberal ears.
And of course, Graham reciprocates the love. He calls Ted Kennedy “one of the most principled men I’ve ever met,” and gushes that Hillary Clinton was “a smart, prepared, serious senator” whose “political future is both unpredictable and unlimited.”
Frankly, it’s Republicans who need to show Graham the door. Graham certainly has no love for his own party.
