The Worst Republican Senator

South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham is a flop. He pretends to be a conservative, but sells out conservatives and insults them while doing so. He pretends to be effective at reaching across party lines, but the only thing he effectively does is help the other party. He inhabits the Senate seat of Strom Thurmond, legendary for great attention to his South Carolina constituents, but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet as McCain criss-crosses the country in pursuit of the presidency. He called Ted Kennedy “one of the most principled men I’ve ever met.” In sum, in the words of conservative movement stalwart Richard Viguerie, “Lindsey Graham is part of the problem.”

What, for example, could possibly have possessed Graham, in April of 2006, to write an essay for Time magazine about the virtues of Hillary Clinton? He called her “a smart, prepared, serious senator.” She is “sought out by her colleagues to form legislative partnerships.” She has managed to “build unusual political alliances with…conservatives.”

Lindsey Graham tops the list for sure.

Gun deaths and gun violence are a national scourge that must be met with strict common-sense gun laws, to prevent rampant violence in society. Everyone is affected, so everyone must be subject to controls.

In an effort to prove the “news” myth paraphrased above, The Baltimore Sun, which features standard anti-gun-rights bias in its reporting, published an interactive map of homicides in the Baltimore area.

Here’s the map:

Here are the categories:

Time Frame: District: ZIP Code: Age: Gender: Race: Cause of Death: Article:

You really only need to change a couple of the categories to get the picture.

In the Time Frame; change that to 2007

In the Race; change that to black

Click show results.

After you see this, change the race to white, and click show results again.

Is there a pattern here?

Go figure.
