Lindsey Graham, who is one of the few politicians in D.C. that is not completely immersed in the swamp, recently let a fully swamp-certified RINO have it, albeit in a much more indirect, class manner than typical Democrats.
Graham’s ire was directed at McConnell, for darn good reason, based on McConnell’s rather absurd, highly emotional commentary that he apparently felt compelled to share after voting not to impeach Trump.
“American citizens attacked their own government. They used terrorism to try to stop a specific piece of democratic business they did not like. Fellow Americans beat and bloodied our own police. They stormed the Senate floor. They tried to hunt down the Speaker of the House …
They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth – because he was angry he’d lost an election … There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day.” [Source: US News]
They used “terrorism?” Wow, McConnell. Where was all this strong language over the summer?
In fact, after Antifa stormed to McConnel’s personal home and threatened him, McConnell apparently had nothing to say about BLM and Antifa in general, aside from the following:
“There is no question that there is residual racism in America.”

Great. Sounds like Obama 2.0. Way to unify the nation, McConnell. Also, all the flip flopping is starting to make Kamala look consistent, which is rather scary.
Lindsey Graham, as usual, took a measured approach compared with McConnell’s melodrama, though he also pointed out a rather obvious challenge McConnell just raised.
“I think Sen. McConnell’s speech, he got a load off his chest, obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans … That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns.” [Source: Fox News]
Assuming any real campaigns will even exist by 2022, that is, given social media’s ongoing conservative witch hunt.
On top of that, Democrats who ranted and raved over Trump’s rather logical questioning of certain election proceedings, notably those that were related to last-minute changes by leftist governors, now have the gall to call into question the public Senate vote.
As insane as that may sound, even for leftists, it is unfortunately true. Just ask an ultra-left “Representative” from Maryland, Jamie Raskin.
“If you listen carefully to what’s being said now, and add the number of senators who say they believe Donald Trump was factually guilty…if 10 or 15 or 20 of them say that, it means you’ve got a supermajority who say the president is guilty.” [Source: Town Hall]
Ok. Millennial snowflakes probably invent better excuses for missing exams than that. You know, like Donald J. Trump winning in 2016, for instance, which apparently excused Ivy League students from academic accountability.
Way to set the bar, Ivies.
Returning back to “Representative” Raskin, he is apparently more vocal about an open Senate vote than the escalating violence in Baltimore, but, to be fair, that is one area in which leftists are surprisingly consistent: Democrat-led cities also tend to be full of degenerate-led crime.
However, even Raskin pales in comparison to Pelosi, who became so consumed with rage that she literally crashed a press conference (twice) to rant and rave over a fully transparent vote.
“It had not been my intention to come to this press availability … But what we saw today was a cowardly group of Republicans who apparently have no options because they were afraid to defend their job – respect the institution in which they serve.” [Source: The Daily Mail]
“This press availability?” What? Does she mean “assembly” from the First Amendment? You know, the actual word that really does appear in the Constitution, or at least a derivative thereof? The full phrase is “the rights of citizens to assemble peaceably,” which is ironically what thousands of Trump supporters did on January 6.
As for the remainder of her statement … what? To which “institution” is she even referring? Hers? China’s? Kamala’s? Obama’s? Whose, exactly? Whatever mysterious “institution” Pelosi is talking about, it is certainly not an “institution” grounded in constitutional reality, that’s for certain.
Since Pelosi did not exactly take questions, it is difficult to say what exactly she was ranting about, but it is easy to say that it was largely vitriolic in nature.
Which is Lindsey Graham perhaps summarized the present state of political affairs as precisely and painfully as possible.
“So we’ve opened Pandora’s box here, and I’m sad for the country.”

Countless other Americans are also quite sad for the country.
Especially since this is only the beginning of an administration, which makes the next few years seem virtually interminable.
May Pandora’s Box not open any further in the meantime … Which is admittedly wishful thinking, in the best case scenario.
