Ah Do Declah!

lindsey-grahamWhen Republican Senator, and lifelong bachelor, Lindsey Graham announced that he was running for President, he said that his sister and some of his other female friends would stand by his side: “I’ll have a rotating First Lady.” I can’t tell you how happy this made me. I could hear the entire universe rolling its eyes and saying “Honey…” There’s nothing that isn’t classically closeted about Lindsey, from his hair to the way he spells his first name to the fact that whenever Jon Stewart imitates him, he uses a Scarlett O’Hara Southern drawl and mimes fanning himself.
Despite his hateful politics, there’s something endearing about Lindsey. He’s a combination of Corky St.Clair, Beverly Leslie from Will&Grace, and every creepy South Carolina choirmaster rolled into one.
