We’ve written previously about U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s naked appeal to social conservatives on the abortion issue, but it turns out there’s a website driving this pander-fest (one with a smiling baby ostensibly rescued from certain death by none other than the loving arms of South Carolina’s senior Senator).
Think we’re exaggerating? Check out Graham’s new pro-life page for yourself …
As we noted last week, Graham’s sudden focus on the abortion issue has nothing to do with abortion and everything to do with ‘legions of gullible, single-issue social conservative voters.”
See, while he raises an army of Democrats and liberal independents to invade the 2014 GOP primary, Graham is also doing whatever he can to retain certain pockets of party voters – including social conservatives, pro-war “neoconservatives” and what we can only assume are the most gullible fiscal conservatives in the world.
According to Graham’s bio on his pro-life site, he is “widely viewed as one of the strongest proponents of a robust national defense and a great friend to our men and women serving in uniform.”
Yeah … if you consider putting them in harm’s way for no good reason (and making them fight alongside al-Qaeda) “friendly.”
The site also claims Graham “has been a leader in balancing the federal budget and reforming entitlements to get our nation’s fiscal house in order.”
Really? Last time we checked, Graham was busy raising taxes in support of Washington, D.C.’s addiction to deficit spending.
And how, exactly, is a budget balanced that has added $5 trillion in new debt over the last four years?
Are South Carolinians really that stupid?
Wait … don’t answer that.
This website is – and will remain – pro-life. But we’re not about to fall for Graham’s ploy. And neither should you.
Lindsey : Champion of the unborn (although, once you’re born you can go fuck yourself) : Graham
Protect them when they are fetuses, give them the finger from birth to their 18th birthday, then get them to join the military for another Middle East war.
Not likely he’ll be personally affected with any hard choices on this issue.
Does Lindsey even know how babies are made?
1 part male
1 part female
40 to 600 million sperm
Shake parts together from 5 seconds to 15 minutes
Bake in oven for 9 months at 98.6 degrees
Take out oven and let cool to room temperature
Lindsey gets all that, until the 1 part female. Which part is it, dang it!
Yes, it’s called doing the “icky” thing.
The GOP should be pro abortion for two reasons:
#1 It disproportionately kills black babies
#2 It’s a limited government position
Once again, none of my bidness, none of the government’s bidness.
He killed all my babies with one flush of the toilet..
This is weird. That baby looks just like him.
Trying to read this article and being confronted by the ghoulish face of Sean Hannity in that America Strong advertisement was just about too much for me . . .
Try AdBlock. Works for me.
Thanks, tomstickler – I’ll give it a try . . .
“Last time we checked, Graham was busy raising taxes in support of Washington, D.C.’s addiction to deficit spending.”
Perhaps someone can check my math, but one of the ways Congress can reduce the deficit is to raise taxes, amirite?
If they were serious about reducing the deficit and debt, raising taxes would certainly be on the table.
But, they aren’t.
This is another one of those issues that certain Republicans only get interesting in at re-election time. Got to pander!
