    Damn that moderate Graham, he must have like a 25% Conservative voting record!

    :eusa_whistle:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA1kMOnU56E&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Tea Baggers "Hunt" Sen. Lindsey Graham "the RINO," mock him at town hall[/ame]

    If a RINO is considered someone with a 90% Conservative lifetime record, then I would hate to see what they consider a Republican.

    But hey, who's really behind the attacks on Graham? Obviously someone must be motivating the GOP in Charleston to do this:

    Who’s behind attacks on Lindsey Graham?

    I've found that it's not always the percentage of times they vote "conservative" (whatever the hell that's supposed to mean anymore), but when they cave on the high profile and expensive issues, like cap-n-gouge, the bailouts and immigration amnesty that drive a lot of people nuts.

    A good example is Tim Pawlenty. Even though he did a 180° on his no new taxes pledge and threw in with stadium welfare for the Pohlads, he's still considered one of those "strong conservatives" mentioned for the 2012 GOP nomination.

    Wow. That is funny. The GOP is looking loonier by the day.

    Maybe if he actually supported limited government this wouldn't have happened. It's hard for me to feel any sympathy since he himself has engaged in a crusade to purge the GOP of true supporters of limited government.
