WHAT THE WHAT?
Reacting to the news that President Obama’s immigration-reform plan included providing for same-sex couples, totally heterosexual Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) said it wasn’t gonna happen on his watch.
“Why don’t we just put legalized abortion in there and round it all out?” Graham asked reporters rhetorically.
Um, Senator, you do know abortions are legal, right? And immigrants can even access them.
Oh, maybe he was signalling a shift back toward moderate politics and rattling off his views?Nah, we don’t think so either.
Graham is part of an eight-member bipartisan committee, along with Sens. John McCain and Chuck Schumer, that’s produced its own road map to fixing immigration—one that doesn’t include some kind of status for same-sex binational couples.
How much you want to bet they didn’t even read President Obama’s plan?
Lindsay has to veer his political car off to the far right of the road until he can get through his primary in 2014. Undoubtedly, the Tea Party maniacs are going to run someone against him who will suggest he’s gay (they did it last time) and that he’s a RINO. The sad thing is that you would have thought by now that someone (if he is gay) would have outed him by now as he’s never been the community’s friend and hasn’t earned the right to stay in the closet peacefully while punching us left and right on Sunday news shows.
