Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., broke with his party to cast the sole GOP “yes” vote on President Obama’s nominee to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. The vote was 13-6.
“What’s in Elena Kagan’s heart is that of a good person who adopts a philosophy I disagree with,” Graham said. “She will serve this nation honorably, and it would not have been someone I would have chosen, but the person who did choose, President Obama, I think chose wisely.”
Graham is the perfect example of how us Tea-Partiers are looking hard at candidates. We shall dish-out his punishment the very next time his seat is up for grabs. In the meantime, we should shun him like he has the plague. I can totally understand Democrats voting for Kagan, sfter all she is expected to follow Obama’s march towards Marxism, but a Republican supporting her has the feel of treason to it.
