All politics in South Carolina is loco, I mean local. No, I take that back. With the recent comments by Republican U.S. senatorial candidate Dave Feliciano about sitting Senator Lindsey Graham, there's definitely a bit a craziness going on in the Palmetto state. HuffPo:
Police officer and political novice Dave Feliciano, who is contesting the Republican primary to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), said on the steps of the South Carolina state House Thursday that Graham is "ambiguously gay."
That dainty, gentlemanly squire from South Carolina, the one with that boyish, Beauregard flamboyance is gay -- or ambiguously gay? "Why I do, declare, how unsportin' of that kindly good-natured man, to be pulling the cotton down over our eyes and passing himself off as straight."
Come to think of it, don't ambiguously gay men participate in all kinds of "unseemly" activities? I guess when you settle in and think some about it, Mister Graham is kind of genteel. He's got smooth, soft skin and always has a determined look on his face. I just figured that it was gas -- even the finest cooked of southern cuisine can do that to a man. It's just so hard to think of him as a Liberace boy. Then again, those pursed lips. That soft-spoken, almost feminine voice. And that heaven-sent southern charm -- haven't seen anything like it since Frank Underwood in House of Cards. I suppose that should have been a give-away. Kevin Spacey, Lindsey Graham. I do see a certain resemblance. And it is a rare sight to see Senator Graham without Senator McCain on his arm. Those two do travel a lot together. Israel. England. France. Say, come to think of it, aren't those countries where gays are openly accepted?
Now all this talk has got me to wondering-- what Lindsey was referring to when he was photographed with that boyfriend of his, Mr. McCain? You know the picture I'm talking about -- the "size" discussion:
And if it's what I'm thinking about, I'm quite insulted for Lindsey when that old cradle-robbing pervert Sen. McCain referred to Sen. Graham in this photo:
Now I'm not one to tell tales out of school, but I did come across this home video. It's been circulatin' around the Mint Julep and Bourbon Society in Charleston for some time now. I was thinking it was just some plantation hoax, but now I'm having some second thoughts. Maybe good ol' Lindsey IS playing for the other side, in an ambiguous way.
