Lindsey Graham’s General Rule: If A Mall Puts You On The “No Fly List” – You Shouldn’t Be In The Senate

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Wednesday that allegations that Roy Moore was banned from an Alabama mall are the latest indication that the GOP candidate shouldn’t serve in the Senate. “I’ve got a general rule, if you can’t be in a mall, you shouldn’t be in the Senate,” Graham told reporters.

He added that Moore was on a “no fly list for a mall, which to me is pretty stunning.” “If you get kicked out of a mall, that’s a pretty bad situation to find yourself in. I think the evidence is becoming overwhelming that he had a problem,” Graham added on Wednesday.

            Hey, I feel ya.

            I felt really sorry for the janitor that had to clean up the glass elevator in the morning.

            In my defense, it wasn’t My DNA that was being wiped from the elevator walls, but it WAS my fault that it was deposited there in the first place.

          • Treant

            #NeverBeenThere but I can sympathize. And why regret? He had a great time, and I guarantee the custodian is used to it.

            Also, how did he finish in a single elevator ride? … Cancel that question…

    People that want to take healthcare away from millions of Americans and give huge tax cuts to billionaires shouldn’t be in the senate either, but that is the world we live in.

    What? So anybody who was banned from a mall at 14 for being rowdy now can’t serve in the Senate?

    Hey, genius! Can I see that in the cold, hard words of the law?

      Not that he was banned, but why. Lucy was just being brief and sassy.

    I’ve told this story before on JMG. If you recall it, please forgive me; I like to tell it. 😉

    Man and I are sitting in a diner here in Maryland and in the booth next to ours are two rednecks. (We have rednecks here in Maryland.)

    So they’re talking politics (yes, you can only imagine the depth of it), and the one says to the other: “You know that Graham guy’s a fag, don’t ya?”

    Lol.

    I swear. He said that.

        People on the ballot who die before election day generally win.

        • AmeriCanadian

          That has happened. I distinctly remember someone dying and his wife filling his seat. But I believe it was an appointment and not a given outcome.

          • William

            Mel Carnahan was running for US Senate against John Ashcroft, when he was killed in a plane crash. His wife was appointed after Carnahan won the election. She stayed on as Senator until losing a special election.

            Other cases of death before election day from Wikipedia:


            Carnahan is not the only candidate to have died during a U.S. Senate race. Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota was killed in a plane crash in 2002, eleven days before his Senate election; Wellstone’s party, the DFL, chose former Vice President Walter Mondale to replace Wellstone on the ballot, but Mondale lost narrowly to Republican Norm Coleman. Representative Jerry Litton, also from Missouri, died in one in 1976 the day that he won the Democratic primary and was to be nominated by party officials; on his death, the party ran a second primary, and former Governor Warren E. Hearnes, the runner-up in the first primary, won but was subsequently defeated by Republican John Danforth. Richard “Dick” Obenshain of Virginia was killed in a plane crash in 1978
            shortly after receiving the Republican nomination; he was replaced by the far less conservative state convention runner-up, former United States Secretary of the Navy John Warner, who proceeded to narrowly defeat (by less than half of a percentage point) former Attorney General of Virginia Andrew P. Miller.

            Ted Weiss was posthumously elected to the House in 1992.

            “I would vote for him even though he is, in fact, dead,” said Pat Klein, 46 years old. “A dead Democrat is better than a live Republican.”

            PS: I voted for him, too.

            To think that Goldwater would be considered a “moderate” Republican these days.

          • thatotherjean

            Indeed. Today’s Republican Party is not only not the “party of Lincoln,” it’s not even the party of Goldwater.

        But they can’t. The rules governing the election are state law. The party has already fulfilled its legal function in having nominated him. No backsies are considered in the law.

        They can wash their hands of him, but that’s all they can do. He’s still the party’s candidate.
