Lindsey Graham Says Gay-Inclusive Immigration Reform As Unlikely As Legal Abortions. (Huh?)

graham30029494yReacting 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?

      In another article I read on the Internet, Mr. Boehner has stated that the big GOP agenda is now to make abortion illegal in the entire country. Perhaps Mr. Graham has such hubris that he believes the GOP has only to say something and it is so – rather like a plot feature of the Mikado. I have never actually thought that the GOP really believed their lies – they just want us to – but perhaps the last election has so disoriented them that they do? Of course Mr. Graham does not have a majority in the Senate, and we may reasonably hope the he will learn the error of his ways in this instance. I would also think that this would require a Constitutional amendment which in turn would require 2/3 of the states agree to it, and by that time, one would expect Mr. Graham to have been called home by his maker.

      In an absolutely sickening note.

      http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/25/new-republican-idea-punishing-rape-victims-with-jail-time/

      This new Republican idea is that an abortion constitutes “tampering of evidence” and that all people who get abortions should be jailed.

      Absolutely a new sickening low for the right wing, completely indefensible.

      I love my state! Despite our reputation as being a red state, we are actually the most progressive state in the country. Both of our ultra-rightwing, Republican Senators are well into middle age, lifelong bachelors, who everyone knows are really gay. Go, GOP and go South Carolina!!!

      Lindsey, it’s time for you to come out of the closet.

      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.

      @mikeincleveland: Exactly! Mark my words, the Teabaggers are going to put up someone like Rep. Trey Gowdy to try to take Lindsay out, which will be a disaster for SC.

      Now that the military is allowing women to fight in combat maybe Miss Lindsay will go fight the “terrorists” in Iran. But don’t hold your breath.

      As a man who looks like an old lesbian, shouldn’t Lindsay Graham support gay rights?

      Soon as he opens his mouth, my gaydar goes off like a siren. Both he and McConnell should be outed.

      Nobody is more homophobic than a terrified closet case.

      I do believe Graham and his boy toy, McShame, are in for a hell of a rude awakening when all this is said and done. The President could wipe their faces in their skid marked undies with the stroke of a pen on an Executive Order, and I can’t think of any people more deserving than the Republican TPods!
