After attending Obama’s Wednesday night GOP schmooze-fest with the rest of “yesterday’s mashed potatoes,” Sen. Lindsey Graham sneeringly called Sen. Rand Paul’s epic filibuster “ridiculous.” The South Carolina senator’s latest absurdity landed him a spot on many conservatives’ laminated you-know-what list.
Grassroots conservatives have finally had enough of Graham and his pal John McCain. Calls to #PrimaryGraham are ramping up and at least two South Carolina bloggers — GayPatriot’s Bruce Carroll and RedState’s Ben Howe — expressed interest in becoming a pesky thorn in Graham’s way-too-comfortable side.
