Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The First Rule of Holes: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is neck-deep in a big ol’ Deep State hole, and he apparently doesn’t have any idea how to get out of it.
Faced with rising anger among the supporters of President Donald Trump – who won his state by 14% of the vote in 2016 – over his refusal to follow up all year on promises to issue a raft of subpoenas and hold hearings to dig at the truth behind Spygate and the neverending coup attempts targeting the President, Graham thought it would be a peachy dodge to hold a press conference today at which he introduced his meaningless resolution condemning the House impeachment circus led by San Fran Nan and Bug-Eyes Schiff:

Far from placating any Trump supporters, Graham’s meaningless stunt only made them angrier, judging from the reactions on Twitter and other social media platforms. I would copy some of the responses over here, but they’re pretty much all obscene at this point. People are really angry, for very good reason.
Graham’s stunt also had the perverse effect of enraging the left-wing social media Outrage Mob, which had been quite happy with the Senator’s talk-a-big-game-but-do-nothing-real posturing since he assumed the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January. So now, literally everyone is angry at Lindsey Graham, except for the Deep State minions his studious inaction serves to protect.
You get the feeling from watching Graham’s presser today that he is just scared to death. His voice was shaky, his answers soft and uncertain, his forehead sweaty – he just looks and acts like a guy who in his heart wants to do the right thing, but just can’t, for whatever reason.
The most generous line of speculation about Graham’s refusal to act in any meaningful way is that, whether he knew it in January and February when he was making bold promises to hold an aggressive hearing schedule, he understands now that all roads related to Spygate ultimately to his personal hero, the execrable John McCain. Anyone who spends five minutes looking at the publicly-available information related to the coup cabal’s spying efforts on the Trump Campaign and Transition team, and the creation of the Steele Dossier very quickly realizes that McCain and his office were intimately involved in all of it.
Thus, if Graham were to actually follow through on his promises to conduct a thorough investigation, he would inevitably end up revealing even more information that would negatively impact McCain’s already soiled reputation. McCain is a man who Graham literally idolizes, a role model who Graham eagerly followed around and emulated for two solid decades. It’s easy to understand why he would break dozens of promises in order to protect his life’s hero.
That, as I say, is the generous speculation about Graham’s refusal to act. Other lines involve him being compromised, threatened or just plain corrupt at his core. Who knows what the truth really is? We may never find out, just as we will probably never find out what really motivated the useless Jeff Sessions.
What we do know, though, is that the stunt Graham pulled today only served to anger people of all political persuasions more than they already were. The Senator needs to quit flailing around like this, quit doing thrice-weekly appearances with Sean “Tick-Tock” Hannity, stop talking in public altogether for a few weeks for his own good. Just go back to focusing on approving the President’s judicial nominees at a record pace, and leave it at that.
Stop digging, Senator.
That is all.
