Tea Party Guy Calls Out 'Gay' Lindsey Graham

Gay, moderate, same difference, right?

Lindsey Graham is a noted moderate, and he's suspiciously single, so some genius speaking at a recent Tea Party rally came to the obvious conclusion: He must be gay! “I need to figure out why you're trying to sell out your own countrymen,” says the as-of-yet-unidentified speaker of Graham, “I need to make sure you being gay isn't it.”

Rumors that Graham might play for the other team have actually been swirling around DC for a while now, writes Gabriel Winant for Salon. But they're totally unsubstantiated, and even if they were, how could that possibly relate to energy or security policy? Would it be better if he were “selling out his countrymen” for another reason? In any case, the speaker was right about one thing: the part where he said “I'm going to take heat for that one on Monday." (More Lindsey Graham stories.)
