Republican Congressman Lindsay Graham who has virally attacked Ron Paul in the past is now the recipient of viral attacks. At a Tea Party rally William Gheen urged Graham to “come out of the closet” and being gay “is a secret that Graham has.”
“I hope this secret isn’t being used as leverage over Senator Graham, so today I think Senator Graham, you need to come forward and tell people about your alternative lifestyle and your homosexuality.””Barney Frank is more honest and brave than you.”
Graham has come under fire from conservatives for his un-conservative views. For his sacrifice for opposing “conservative” beliefs, Graham has been called a “Democrat in drag”, a “traitor”, and a “disgrace”. These “homosexual” rumors have gone unsubstantiated. As I have posted on this blog last week, and can be found elsewhere, those who turn on other conservatives, like in the case of Sarah Palin, the bloodbath can get nasty(see my post Hands off Sarah Palin).
While I agree with the criticism of Sarah Palin – that she cannot even tell us what newspaper she reads, flip-flops on a lot of issues, she quit her state to sell books, this latest attack on Lindsay Graham is just viral and belongs on Jerry Springer or Maury Povich.
All this amounts to is controversy and ratings. The conservatives are willing to burn anyone at the stake who doesn’t go along with their plans. They say the Democrats have an agenda, well, so do the Republicans.
As a final note to Tea Partiers who applaude, advocate, or otherwise support this sort of crap that goes on at the Parties, shame on you. Stick to the politics, let TMZ handle the rumors.
