Spineless Lindsey Graham set himself up for this video highlighting his weird flip flop act

Originally published at: Spineless Lindsey Graham set himself up for this video highlighting his weird flip flop act | Boing Boing


So many of the talking points conservatives have used as weapons against Democrats for the last 30 years have been projection and/or hypocritical.

Bill Clinton didn’t have the moral character to be president.

John Kerry was a flip-flopper.

Obama didn’t have enough experience in politics.

Hillary was corrupt.

You can apply all of these to plenty of GOP politicians-- Trump, Romney, Graham, etc etc etc.


Donald Trump is 100% blackmailing Lindsey Graham.


Once again, I wish that Dem media people (in this case those of S. Carolina) had half the viciousness and skill of the neoCons behind TLP. Then maybe they’d have a better chance of putting up a decent fight against this cowardly fraud. They might not win but they’d make life miserable for Huckleberry.

The pathetic part is that the kompromat in question is an open secret, not only amongst the prostitutes of DC and his Senate colleagues but also with lots of the folks back home. He’d rather let himself be extorted and made a public laughingstock for his spinelessness (and help destroy the republic he claims to love) than just come out with a secret that’s nothing to be ashamed of in 2021.


In as much as graham is capable of thinking two steps ahead (dubious), the assumption is that the fox"news" propaganda heavy industrial complex can be depended to select only those graham clips which support trump and the far-right. That is, fox"news" viewers will really only see the one side of the graham quantum coin flip; and would even declare it “fake news” if they were shown (again) the numerous times that graham uttered anti-trump statements. As we know national politics is nigh peak anti-reality, thankee rupert murdoch. -sigh-


Sad weasel of a human being, but they keep voting for this pile of shit wrapped in skin.

Illegal activities, or even just extreme kink that
would get him unelectable, may better explain his actions. Or maybe his kink is being blackmailed, and if he spills the beans the thrill is gone.


I doubt it’s either. He’s just a sad, frightened little punk who will be listed with the rest of history’s craven appeasers, if he’s remembered at all.


But where could Donald Trump have possibly obtained that kompromat on Lindsey Graham…?

Maybe that’s just a cover for the real blackmail?


It’s 2022 though. New rules in play.


I mean, we’ve seen how quickly they turn on their own if someone dares to criticize Dear Leader. You don’t really need much more blackmail than “if you don’t support me, you’ll never work in politics again.”


He’s not exactly wrong there—Republicans who speak out against the treasonous asshat are pariahs in their own party—but a less spineless leader would be trying to figure out how to cut out that cancer at the heart of the GOP instead of feeding it.


what’s his big secret? somebody go ahead and say it


Lindsey has taken a wide stance. I hope he doesn’t get the vapors.

He is secretly straight?


its secret that he’s gay? and trump is blackmailing him over what is obvious?

No way reality can be that stupid, it must be something else.


Rolling Stone summed him up pretty well a while back (2020):

“People try to analyze Lindsey through the prism of the manifest inconsistencies that exist between things that he used to believe and what he’s doing now,” Schmidt says. “The way to understand him is to look at what’s consistent. And essentially what he is in American politics is what, in the aquatic world, would be a pilot fish: a smaller fish that hovers about a larger predator, like a shark, living off of its detritus. That’s Lindsey. And when he swam around the McCain shark, broadly viewed as a virtuous and good shark, Lindsey took on the patina of virtue. But wherever the apex shark is, you find the Lindsey fish hovering about, and Trump’s the newest shark in the sea. Lindsey has a real draw to power — but he’s found it unattainable on his own merits.” -RollingStone
