Lindsey Graham Voted For John Brennan, Blamed Rand Paul


Lindsey Graham

I’m going to have to keep my commentary here to a minimum because I really want to curse and this is a family-friendly blog.

Lindsey Graham on why he voted to confirm John Brennan:

Speaking to reporters after he came off the floor Wednesday, Mr. Graham said he defends Mr. Paul’s right to ask questions and seek answers, but said the filibuster has actually pushed him to now support Mr. Brennan.

Mr. Graham said he had been inclined to oppose the nomination because he’d found Brennan to be qualified for the job but also “arrogant, kind of a bit shifty.” He said he wasn’t going to filibuster him but would have voted against him on final passage, but now he’ll vote for him.

“I am going to vote for Brennan now because it’s become a referendum on the drone program,” he said.

Someone has to primary this guy. I don’t care who it is. Kermit the Frog would be better.
