HIS WORDS, NOT OURS …
By FITSNEWS || U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham dropped the “F” bomb, joked about his support of white men in all-male clubs and made fun of Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists in a speech delivered to the Charleston, S.C. Hibernian Society last month.
In audio recordings from the event leaked to reporter Peter Hamby of CNN, the liberal “Republican” incumbent is heard speaking off the cuff to the influential all-male gathering of Irish Catholics.
“I’m trying to help you with your tax status,” Graham tells his wealthy audience. “I’m sorry the government’s so f*cked up.”
The remark that’s got everybody buzzing?
“If I get to be president, white men who are in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency,” he said.
Graham also parroted some familiar jokes about various protestant faiths.
“We got any Presbyterians here? You’re predestined to be here,” Graham joked. “We got any Baptists? They’re the ones that drink and don’t admit it. Methodists? Methodists? (They’re) Baptists who can’t read.”

Actually the joke is that “Methodists are Baptists who can read …” but whatever.
Obviously Graham – who has his reelection pretty much sewn up – was joking. But still, this isn’t exactly the sort of thing a candidate who’s been consistently polling below 45 percent wants to see hitting the press six days before voters go to the polls.
Thank God we endorsed a dead guy for this seat …
