Last fall when South Carolina Senator, and the Not Gay … Seriously, he’s not gay … Lindsey Graham said he would be considering a run for the White House in 2016. And he made a point of saying whenever he was asked if he should run:
“At the end of the day, if I didn’t think I could win my home state, I wouldn’t be doing this.”
Well, that’s that then, because a new poll released last week shows that most South Carolinians … sixty percent, in fact … would not vote for Lindsey Graham in a presidential bid and, actually, think he should just stop talking about it ‘cuz it ain’t gonna happen.
Odd, since Graham has a 60 percent approval rating as a senator … though that’s mostly from Republican-aligned voters; and that means that forty percent of Republican-aligned voters in the state don’t think he’s all that and a bag of chips.
Graham has said he will decide by May whether to formally announce a bid and while I’m thinking it’s gonna be ‘No,’ if it’s a ‘Yes,’ let the games begin!
Miss Lindsey won’t be able to stand the heat and probably the people of South Carolina, hopefully, won’t be able to stand the lunacy of the man.
See, our own Senator, who actually sits on a technology subcommittee, has introduced and voted on bills related to the internet has announced that he has never ever sent an email.
And even though he says has not used e-mail at any time, ever, Lindsey Graham co-sponsored the Anti-Spamming Act in 2001, which would criminalize the “transmitting” of “ten or more unsolicited commercial electronic mail messages to one or more protected computers in the United States, with the knowledge that such messages are accompanied by or contain materially false or misleading information as to the identity of the initiator.” He is also a member of a Judiciary subcommittee regarding Privacy, Technology and the Law, though – again – he has never used one of the most basic bits of technology on the planet.
Typical politician; he’s on the committees, he's introducing legislation, and voting on things about which he has no personal knowledge or apparent use.
This all sprang from the Hillary Clinton non-scandal that the GOP is chewing on like a rabid dog related to an email account Clinton used while Secretary of State; Graham, in talking about that, said:
“I don’t email. You can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one.”
As I said elsewhere, I picture Graham sitting at an antique desk, putting quill into an inkwell, and then to lavender scented paper for his special brand of correspondence.
Of course, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have someone email for him … or tend to his Grindr account.
