Good thing he’s not up for reelection until 2014: Senator Lindsey Graham tears into the Tea Party in a New York Times Magazine article that doesn’t figure to sit well with his South Carolina constituents. “The problem with the Tea Party, I think it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country,” he says. “It will die out.” He describes himself as being “completely opposite of where the Tea Party movement’s at,” especially on climate change, immigration, and the Guantanamo Bay detention center. And then he says something that will certainly cause a few gasps in the GOP: “Ronald Reagan would have a hard time getting elected as a Republican today.” The never-married Senator also clears up rumors about his sexuality, saying “I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men…but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.”
Which Reagan wannabe will lead the GOP back to glory?
Seems those who inherited earned their vast wealth while still in the womb are reminiscing about the many splendors of growing up rich. Regaling one another with stories about how the poor considered themselves lucky to share in the lovely homes they served; how blessed they felt to eat some of the same food, sometimes even sleep in the same homes as the more-deserving gracious and generous masters. These are the days they strive to return to! They must find another Reagan.
Who will it be?
