Lindsey Graham Challenged … By A Dem?

Democrats in South Carolina love Lindsey Graham. Love him … And why not? Ideologically he’s one of them … well, except for that whole war-mongering thing. But when it comes to big government – Graham can’t resist, and so he doesn’t discriminate between “Republican” and “Democratic” waste. Anyway … in…

Democrats in South Carolina love Lindsey Graham. Love him …

And why not? Ideologically he’s one of them … well, except for that whole war-mongering thing. But when it comes to big government – Graham can’t resist, and so he doesn’t discriminate between “Republican” and “Democratic” waste.

Anyway … in light of his left-leaning record, we’re surprised to learn that Graham is facing Democratic opposition in 2014 in the form of Jay Stamper, a businessman and non-profit director who hails from Columbia, S.C.

“Too many South Carolinians are unemployed or underemployed and struggling to keep up with the rising costs of healthcare and education,” Stamper said in a press release announcing his candidacy. “I’m running because someone needs to stand up to the politicians in Washington D.C. who would rather invest in nation-building overseas than nation-building right here in the United States. Our strength as a country depends on the strength of our economy and that means investing in education, infrastructure and research to create jobs here at home.”

Actually that means investing in our economy (not more government), but other that that we’re “smelling what Stamper’s stepping in.”

Of course Stamper is likely doomed to be a sacrificial donkey in 2014 – whether he’s facing Graham or a fiscal conservative Republican who was somehow able to beat Graham in next summer’s GOP primary.

Who’s running in that contest? So far, only two candidates have announced their intention to challenge Graham – S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg) and openly gay GOP activist Bruce Carroll.

Mulling a bid? Nancy Mace – a co-owner of this website and the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, South Carolina’s formerly all-male military college.

Love Nancy Mace, but I just don’t think she has the name recognition to run against Sen. Graham. I think she should run for office, but not sure US Senate is the best place to start?

If Bright or some other right wing nut beats Graham, Democrats will have a shot at winning the seat, provided they run someone credible.

Graham isn’t losing a primary battle unless hell freezes over…and even then he’ll probably recruit Satan to help him campaign by telling him the climate here in SC in warmer.

To Senator Graham and his fellow Cockroaches

Any free buffet of BBQ and Liquor will be lunch
To Senator Cockroaches wanting to munch.
From drain pipes in smelly places
They will dart out across open spaces—
With a little luck they will scoot under my shoe
And I will be able to crush the little sons of bitches into poo

The SC Dems should dust off Alex Sanders for a rematch twelve years in the making if he is still alive.

Interesting conversation, sure, but LG (sugar-britches and all) will whip Bright’s ass, and then whip the Dem in the general. Not saying it’s a good thing or a bad thing, it’s just the thing…

Senator Lee Bright will easily beat Nazi Graham and win South Carolina.

When Graham came out as a RINO-NAZI, everyone turned against Graham, even the Democratic Nazis who were funding him like George Soros. The Democrats want to destroy Graham, the Tea Party wants to destroy Graham, the Libertarians want to destroy Graham and now his only allies the Nazis want to destroy Graham.

We, in South Carolina, realize that Graham is a very dangerous and deceptive RINO-NAZI.

Hitler and the Nazis used the same game plan on every country.
1) take the guns away – from one group at a time
2) take the civil rights away – from one group at a time
3) destroy the economy with counterfeiting

Graham is doing all three of the Nazi Steps with his current legislation.
1) He sponsored a bill to take guns away from people for medical reasons

2) He’s for ObamaCare which takes away our civil rights like:
a) Freedom of Religion with birth control, abortion, euthanasia
b) Right to Life with euthanasia, mercy killing and abortion
c) No Search or Seizure is violated with mandatory home inspections
d) Mandatory mental health exams used to prevent gun ownership

3) Nazi Graham tells us we’ve borrowed $16.7 Trillion Dollars from enemy countries yet there are only $9.2 Trillion Dollars printed and circulating in the entire world. THIS IS HITLER PLAN TO DESTABILIZE ECONOMIES THROUGH COUNTERFEITING.

4) Then Nazi Graham tells us we are in a WAR AND WE NEED TO BORROW MORE COUNTERFEIT MONEY FROM ENEMY COUNTRIES, when in fact we are not in a war, ONLY CONGRESS CAN DECLARE WAR – NOT NAZI GRAHAM OR NAZI OBAMA.

5) Nazi Graham backs assassinating FIVE American Citizens without an arrest, a trial, a jury or a judge.

6) Nazi Graham wants to legalize 16,000.000 KNOWN CRIMINALS UNDER GRAMNESTY.

The only way Graham is not a RINO-NAZI is if Hitler was not a Nazi.
