GOP leaders really going out on a limb on this one

You will have noted by now that Bobby Harrell has joined the GOP establishment types officially aligning themselves behind Lindsey Graham’s re-election (if you want to call our governor, whose hobby is infuriating fellow Republicans, an "establishment type.").

Normally this wouldn’t even be worth the sort of by-the-way blurb treatment S.C. newspapers are giving it. For the first time in a very long time, one of the brightest, most visible, most quoted members of the U.S. Senate is from South Carolina. Of course officeholders of his party would line up behind him.

But one gets the idea they do so with a slight nervousness, like covered-wagon settlers holding hands around the campfire, trying not to notice the faint sound of war drums in the distance. (It’s the natives — they’re restless.)

All of that said, with all of this visible support, does Lindsey really need to be warding off the evil spirits with all these incantations he keeps reciting?

    I hope they all pledge to support amnesty for illegal immigrants as well as calling anyone against those immigrants “racists”. We need more leadership like that.
    It’s about time all these Republican supporters came out of the closet to stand behind Senator Graham!
