What is Lindsey Graham's Deal?

He is sliding into Trump shill territory. He used to sound like one of the few sane adults in the GOP room, but lately seems to have some ulterior motives or unseen pressures being brought to bear. Is he simply angling to be Trump's next AG?

Wonder if it's related to what I perceive to be Graham's inability to be himself, if you know what I mean.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I find not living who you are to be tragic. I feel for anyone caught in that situation. The thing is...most people simply don't care. It's unfortunate Graham is a hardline conservative and thus that stuff matters to his constituents.

Oh well...it can always be worse, like this...

This is why I dislike the GOP and conservatives so much. If you can't be yourself, then why are you leading others? Seems rather FAKE and/or misguided. The thing is, politics in the U.S. are littered with these guys like this who often make it a point to make things as misserable as possible for everyone, including "their own". It's really a fccked up way to live and really un-Christian like given the message of love.

Graham has already shown that he has no qualms lying to make Trump look good. Remember his recent tweet that Trump had just shot a round of 73? Should have known something was fishy then.

Graham kind of does remind me of his buddy McCain....they look like they're rebels.

Lindsay Graham was always one of my "hatiest" (family word dating back 70 years) Senators. Just listen to his stance on Clinton during Lewinsky (by the way, if these republicans aren't hypocritical, I don't know what hypocrisy is). When he briefly came out talking tough against Trump, I thought maybe I had him wrong. But now I see that was a brief spell. He probably got wind of the fact that 90% of GOP (insanely) supports trump. No backbone, just a vote horror (spelled the other way).

I hate Lindsay graham.

By the way, he talks and looks like he's from Castro, South Carolina. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I always wondered how he ever got elected in such a state where homosexuality is a sinful "choice".

To be honest, Graham had not been on my radar for a long while until he started saying things like this, where he publicly tells Trump to go there only at his extreme peril:


His tune is so different just one year later -- same president, same AG -- that one really must wonder what has influenced the dramatic about face in his rhetoric. Any theory?

He wants the AG job and was told it's his...if he helps get rid of Sessions.

Graham tidbits that I only learned from reading this People Magazine story from 2015 just now:

- The Republican presidential candidate and longtime bachelor... has joked that he will have a "rotating First Lady" (between friends and family) if he's elected.

- "I've never married. I guess I attribute that to timing... The opportunity never presented itself at the right time, or I never found time to meet the right girl, or the right girl was smart enough not to have time for me."

- He had a girlfriend, Debbie, in law school, and two more during his time in the Air Force in Germany: a JAG officer named Carol who went on to serve on Colin Powell's staff, and a Lufthansa flight attendant named Sylvia... His relationship with Sylvia became "serious quickly," he writes, so serious that he considered proposing to her. He never did. She returned to Vienna to be with her family and he "was a South Carolina boy who needed to go home."

- He lost both his parents by the age of 22 (they died within 15 months of each other).

Can't stand him. His sexual preference is his own private business. It is sad that in this day and age he had to talk about his dating history.

Bearister, I am totally with you, but just to clarify, the article only references details from Graham's self-published memoir (that was once available as a download from lindseygraham.com).

Here's my opinion:

It has nothing to do with sexuality. Lindsey Graham is just another craven hypocrite Republican who falls in line. He may talk a lot, like John McCain, but it's all about action.

Jon Stewart's Daily Show frequently skewered the right-wing showing how they'd change their opinion on something based on who was the president. (Obama golfing = bad, Trump golfing = who cares.)

I've never seen that frequently done with left-wingers.

It's because Republicans are more hypocritical. and basically Graham fits that mold.

Graham is much like the rest: he'll change his position based on whatever he thinks will save his job. It's just more blatant with him because of how big he talks before he flip-flops.

I'm horrified to acknowledge that you and I think alike. I was going to post this rendering of Sylvia yesterday but then decided not to.....but now that you have broken the ice so ably:

Nah, not the right vibe for a dominatrix for LG. He needs someone who can REALLY make him toe the line and whimper. This is the stuff of GOP nightmares...yet they ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

Yours is better. The Aryan swastika look cries out for Lufthansa and Lindsay, and the love that dare not speak its name

Yes, this. Exactly.
