Lindsey Graham uses his powers for good on Chuck Hagel.

Do you know why Lindsey Graham frustrates a lot of my Republican colleagues? The real reason?

It’s because every so often he does something like this

During his Senate confirmation hearings, former Senator Chuck Hagel R-Neb. couldn’t name any of the “dumb things” that he said the “Jewish lobby” forced the Senate to do.

…AND WE DON’T KNOW WHAT SWITCH WE NEED TO FLIP TO GET LINDSEY GRAHAM TO DO THIS ALL THE TIME.

:pause:

Gah.

    If Graham votes against confirming Hagel, then I’ll buy it.

    Until then, this smells of media.

      At this rate, I don’t think that Republicans are going to vote for Hagel. Right now, Obama is twisting arms to make sure that Democrats do.

        Think we can peel off enough? We need 6, yes?

        I just don’t see the Hagel nomination motivating that many Dems in Red States to say “pass” …

    two takeaways

    1) forget Hagel’s politics, he has shown himself mostly to be a dim bulb.

    2) Graham always should have been one of those “down home Southern lawyers”. But even when he fights for our side, he is always very close to going full nutter*

    *check his final argument in the Clinton impeachment trial.

    Well, good thing Obama has such warm and cordial relationships with Senator Reid & the rest of the caucus!
