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.

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
