Let me get this straight. A three-term Republican senator, who voted to approve two of the most liberal judges to ever sit on the Supreme Court, supports illegal amnesty, and was 100% in the tank for Obama’s tax n’ spend energy policy, is blaming a Fox News commentator for the division in his party?
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, thinks he knows why the country is increasingly divided on ideological lines, and it has a lot to do with MSNBC and Fox News.
In an interview Tuesday with NBC, Graham said the current media environment makes it difficult for lawmakers to accomplish anything. He envisioned what it would be like for the Constitution to be written, had MSNBC’s liberal Rachel Maddow and Fox News’ conservative Sean Hannity been there for its creation.
“So, you’re at Philadelphia Hall, you’ve got satellite trucks parked outside,” Graham said. “You know, Ben Franklin comes outside and Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity jump on him, ‘Don’t give in, Ben.’ Just think how hard it is in today’s 24/7 news cycle, talk radio, cable television and money [in politics]. There is a group telling you to say no about everything.”
That’s right, people. If we just had a little less free speech around here, maybe we could get something done.
Lindsey for President! … Lindsey! Lindsey!
C’mon everybody! Linds…
Wait. Where have we…?
