WHAT THE WHAT?

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?
