Lindsey Graham Meets Sotomayor, Tells Her She Sucks

News

Waterboarding-lover and generally bad human Lindsey Graham met with Sonia Sotomayor today as she was making her "rounds," in Congress. While most legislators have simply said afterward that they had a pleasant, interesting conversation with her, Lindsey Grahambragged to reporters about how he told her, "Sonia, you would not believe how much I want to vote against you. It is literally insane, the level of hatred I have towards you, personally."


In a critical news conference following his 30-minute closed-door meeting with Sotomayor, Graham said that he would have great difficulty supporting her — and that he let her know it.

"I was very direct," Graham told reporters gathered outside his office. "I have to decide how to play this game, quite frankly. If I use the same standard that Sen. [Barack] Obama used, then I would not vote for you, quite frankly."

Graham argued that Obama had voted against Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito because they differed with him on ideology, and that going by that standard, he would not be inclined to support the presumably far more liberal Sotomayor.

Oooooh, what's it like drinking your own urine, Obama? Lindsey Graham despised Obama's rationale for opposing Roberts and Alito so much that he's just gonna use it himself!

Graham also gave a big shout-out to important New Republic Internet-quitter Jeffrey Rosen! Was Sotomayor nice and polite and stuff during their meeting, according to Graham? You bet! But the Internet still says she's a bitch, and he's siding with the Internet.

In his post-meeting news conference Graham also raised questions about Sotomayor's temperament. He said that while she was friendly in the meeting, he could not simply ignore reports of her fiery attitude.

"I believe she does have the intellectual capacity, but there is a character problem, there is a temperament problem," he said.

Hey, remember that time Lindsey Graham tried to have animal sex with Samuel Alito, live on C-SPAN? "YOU'RE A GOOD MAN. I KNOW YOU'RE A GOOD MAN. I KNOW IT BABY." Just a quick flashback for everyone.

Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug ... He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks: dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

Yr Wonkette is no stranger to the double-edged weapon of sarcasm, we'll admit. OR WILL WE? It's part of our postmodern toolkit, with which we seek to undermine patriotism, faith, the free market, the family, and ultimately America itself. Duh. But we would never be so naive as to think we have a monopoly on irony and sarcasm, oh no, far from it. This week, we dip into the sludge of deletia for some brilliant examples of cutting rightwing wit turned back on us, with devastating results. Hope you're not all TRIGGERED so much you have to go find a SAFE SPACE, libs!

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!
