Lindsey Graham, you're on your own

There have been few high-profile Republican politicians more publicly and slavishly devoted to President Trump over the last few years than Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Words like "toady" and "lapdog" have frequently been used to describe the senator's subservience. Apparently that near-total fealty hasn't been enough for Graham to earn a little loyalty in return.The Trumpiest corners of the conservative ecosphere have made it plain in recent weeks that they're ready to abandon Grah...

Barrett, Scalia and the Tone Deafness of Legal and Biblical Originalism

I paid little attention to Clarence Thomas’ appointment in 1991 other than to recognize, given my background in nonverbal communication, that he was probably lying about harassment. The research reveals that telling whether a person is lying is not nearly as easy as some would like you to believe. So, my conclusion was “probable.” But in watching Anita Hill all the nonverbals indicated a high probability she was telling the truth. That was all very frustrating. My focus was completely upon the h...

Even Fox News Is Tired Of Lindsey Graham’s Groveling For Donations

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday returned to begging voters for campaign donations during a Fox News appearance — successfully making a first plea before he was abruptly cut off during a second attempt to scrounge for contributions. The South Carolina lawmaker shamelessly groveled for donations twice during Laura Ingraham’s show as he faces perhaps one of the toughest reelection bids of his career before the network cut him off:  Lindsey Graham attempts to beg for money a second time i...

Lindsey Graham Is Being Boosted by a Tea Party Group That Has Always Hated Him

It’s no secret that Sen. Lindsey Graham is in the fight of his political life in the closing days of his campaign to win reelection to the U.S. Senate.“I’m getting overwhelmed,” Graham begged on-air with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last month, as his Democratic rival Jaime Harrison brought in a record-shattering $57 million in donations to unseat him. “Help me—they’re killing me money-wise. Help me.”But with ersatz ally President Donald Trump nowhere to be seen, a group that once despised Graham—and ...

Senate votes to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court

By Lisa Mascaro | Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court late Monday by a deeply divided Senate, Republicans overpowering Democrats to install President Donald Trump’s nominee days before the election and secure a likely conservative court majority for years to come. Trump’s choice to fill the vacancy of the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg potentially opens a new era of rulings on abortion, the Affordable Care Act and even his own election...

Senate subpoenas could force Zuckerberg and Dorsey to testify on New York Post controversy

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of issuing subpoenas for Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey Thursday, meaning that there might be two big tech CEO hearings on the horizon. Republicans in the committee declared their interest in a hearing on “the platforms’ censorship of New York Post articles” after social networks limited the reach of a dubious story purporting to contain hacked materials implicating Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, in impropriety involving a Ukrai...

For the sin of collegiality, once the hallmark of the United States Senate, California Senator Dianne Feinstein is facing calls to step down as ranking minority member of the powerful Judiciary Committee. In Twitter’s garden of outrage, where courtesy and tolerance go to be buried, the calls for Feinstein’s ouster “trended” after she complimented Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, for his handling of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “One of...
