Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-S.C), in an interview with "The Atlantic" has come forward to speak the truth that the rest of us already know. The "Birthers" AND Glenn Beck are CRAZY! Graham offered his unusually blunt assessment of these fringe elements of his party and conservative media on Thursday, calling Glenn Beck, the popular and bombastic Fox News host, a "cynic" whose show was "antithetical to American values."
"Only in America can you make that much money crying," Graham said of Beck. "Glenn Beck is not aligned with any party. He is aligned with cynicism and there has always been a market for cynics. But we became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers."
Senator Graham called the BIRTHERs who question the president's U.S. citizenship "CRAZY" and implored them to "KNOCK OFF THIS CRAP!" so the country could get on to more important matters. Similar to what his friend Senator McCain said during the Town Hall Meetings: "So I'm here to tell you that those who think the president was born somewhere other than Hawaii are CRAZY. He's not a Muslim. He's a good man," Graham said.
I applaud Senator Graham for coming forward with the truth. I also applaud him for making this statement:"I'm going to do everything I can to give him the political support he needs to win these two wars that we're in."
I am only curious as to how long it will take his fellow Republicans to chastise him for his truth telling and side with the Crazy Fringe. My guess is, he will be lucky if he makes the weekend without being assaulted by the extremists of his party.
