  • Pretty sure he was joking, since the GOP keeps trotting out lines that the world has stopped and nothing productive is happening because of the trial.

      You are probably right. And I get on folks for being too literal around here.

      Looks like I owe Drew one.

      • Can I make a gentle request?

        Can we drop the "Lady G" stuff? I don't care if Graham is closeted, not closeted, gay, straight, pan, bi, poly, whatever, and I don't think many of you guys do either. But supposing he is closeted, calling him this pejorative name merely uses the same bigoted, insulting and reductionist garbage the right uses. Even using it half ironically isn't ok, in my opinion. The man deserves no quarter or sympathy. But to me, being a better person that the bigots on the right means actually being a better person. And you can do that by not insulting folks with bigoted terminology.


        Sorry for tone policing. I definitely don't mean to defend Graham. But let's be better.

          The Senate has nothing to do with the distribution.
          See, our elected representatives are the ones delivering the vaccines to states, and injecting them into people's arms.

          But they can't be doing that, cause they're stuck in impeachment hearings.

          Just when you think Drew might actually be turning into a thinking, responsible political actor, he posts some bull**** like that.
          What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

            Can we just refer to him as dooshbag?

                  I don't mean to be a jerk. I just want us - all of us - to be better. Juvenile is fun and fine and hilarious. Bigoted is not so much.

                    I made that argument not that long ago, but I have flipped on it. I use it to show his hypocrisy because he defends and breaks the law for the very people who force him to deny (allegedly) who he is. If he was just some potsker in the neighborhood I would never do that but he has a high position with a ton of power and he uses it to make other people miserable. Until that changes I have no issue calling him Lady G. I give him the same courtesy he gives everyone else...

                    It isn't about being gay, I doubt any of us really care especially Liberals. If he came out tomorrow I would barely bat an eye outside of saying "good for you". The man is a traitor and is lucky he isnt facing a criminal investigation in GA for doing the exact same thing Trump did. He also is part of a power structure in a party that denies pretty much anyone that isnt a White Christian Hetero Male Civil Rights.

                    I respect your opinion, but I decline.

                    • Like I said, I am not defending Graham in the slightest - and I hope the GA AG investigation includes that phone call he made and I hope he faces criminal prosecution. The man is a human remora fish.

                      I'm also super uncomfortable tone policing, so I don't enjoy this.

                        To be fair to Rufus when I heard it on Fox News they were dead serious. It’s hard to believe anyone can say that with a straight face.

                          I don't think anyone will take offense to the request and surely Handy doesn't take issue with your sentiment nor do I. But I sort of see his point also about using it because of Graham's hypocrisies.

                          • Graham is just another hypocritical racist. Just has more voice than most. Hard to have more contempt for a person like that, but I keep finding reasons to.

                            The "Lady G" reference is good in one way because it would offend him to his core- because of his hypocrisy- he's clearly anti woman, like all racist party members, but he's surely anti LBGTQ, like in his racist party.

                            The problem with using it here is that neither he nor his supporters get it, and can't be offended by it.

                            I'll just label him POS. The problem using that label would be that so many of his party fit that label.

                                He really is despicable.
