Low Point

I found Senator Lindsey Graham's comment about how he changed his mind on the filibustering situation because "we are at war, and kids are dying," very disgusting and nonsensical, and really quite a disconnect. Filibuster>>War. War>>Filibuster.

OooooooooKkkkkaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy then.

Hugh Hewitt agrees:
Lindsey Graham's short speech about "we are at war, and kids are dying," was a low, low point for him. Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines are fighting and sometimes dying for freedom and human dignity, not for Senate "comity" and Robert Byrd's fuzzy grasp of history. The injustice done especially to William Meyer and Henry Saad is manifestly not what they are fighting for, and covering low political calculation and backroom deal-making--sometimes necessary but never noble-- in rhetoric about wartime is repulsive. Graham admitted that his folks at home will be angry, so he acted with full awareness that he was abandoning the people who put him into office."
