Poor Lindsey Graham. In less than eighteen months he’ll be defeated in South Carolina’s 2014 GOP primary. He is the number one target of the Club for Growth. He is talking tough about the UN Ambassador and yelling “Benghaz!” over and over again as if it is a magic word that will save him from doom. It won’t help. Count Chocola wants his blood.
And this–more than anything else–explains every action Lindsey will take in the coming days, weeks and months.
And it helps to explain John McCain’s bitter panic as well. Lindsey will be his last sycophant standing when the 113th Congress comes to town. Lindsey will be the last Senator left who will automatically treat everything McCain does as “awesome”. McCain will do what he can to save his fanboy, but it will not matter. Even if they both went full Ni-CLANG on President Obama 24/7 (and they’re both almost there), they will not be able to save poor old Lindsey from the wrath of the wingnuts.
Any journalist who treats either of these doddering old fools as relevant will prove themselves to be hacks. As there are so many hacks in the media, we can expect a lot of fluffing and tire swinging as McCain and his sidekick sink into oblivion. This is known.
