… HE’S GOT PLENTY OF TIME FOR THE D.C. MEDIA ELITE
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has yet to respond to a July challenge from independent conservative Thomas Ravenel to join him in a series of citizen-led town hall meetings across the state.
In fact Ravenel has taken to challenging Graham’s “bestie” in the U.S. Senate, John McCain, as a substitute.
Graham clearly has no time to take questions from South Carolina voters (well, unless it’s a hand-picked crowd), but he’s evidently got plenty of time for the Washington, D.C. legacy media.
According to data collected by American University, Graham has made eighty-five appearances on Washington’s Sunday morning talk shows (“Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation,” “State of the Union,” “Fox News Sunday” and “This Week”) since 2009. The only politician who has appeared on the shows more frequently?
John McCain …
Graham is a creature of Washington, people … a guy who has become totally disconnected from the people he’s supposed to represent (and their best interests).
Graham is a shameless warmonger. And special interest whore. And fiscal liberal. And Barack Obama abettor. And neo-fascist. And friend of terrorists. And thief of your liberty. And fraud. And hypocrite.
Are those really attributes South Carolinians want?
“At a time when the people of this country need a choice, not an echo – Lindsey Graham is living in the Washington echo chamber,” Ravenel said.
We agree …
