Lindsey Graham Talks Truth To Power

Maybe 'power' might seem a weird word to use for a bunch of inchoate jerkwads like the Tea Partiers. In the real world, they amount to nothing but the annoying buzz of a few angry skeeters with man boobs. But in the GOP they are the power. And that's why Lindsey Graham must have balls that belie his middle-aged-lesbian-running-an-antique-store persona for taking them on.

In a new profile in the NYT, Graham tells them that they "have no vision, and you'll die out". He also tells a nice story to illustrate:

Graham also said he challenged a group of Tea Partiers in a meeting: "'What do you want to do? You take back your country -- and do what with it?'...Everybody went from being kind of hostile to just dead silent."

I'd give props to Graham for staying rational and almost single-handedly constituting the moderate wing of the GOP these days. But he knows as well as I do what those weasels mean when they talk about "taking back their country".

C'mon, Lindsey, let's cut the crap and quit pretending they're anything but a bunch of racist scumbags. Call them what they are and help finish them off quicker! C'mon, your people ain't gonna listen to me and Keith Olbermann!
