Lindsey “Weather Vane” Graham should never again be allowed to fill any position of leadership or authority. May February 3, 2021 be the last day he ever has any power to dictate the agenda of the Senate or any committee thererof.

The public won’t be told about McConnell’s double top secret right of first refusal on any legislation or nominations the Dems submit.

Can someone explain why Schumer spent so much time waltzing with McTurtle on this? It’s not like that demon is ever going to keep his word down the line.

Lindsey Graham is always play acting. He will take on what ever persona he feels will advance himself personally at any time on any topic. There is nothing sincere that has ever come from him. The fact that he keeps getting re-elected is a testament to the gullibility and ignorance of the voters of South Carolina.

It’s an odd thing. Schumer was already Majority Leader.

What the new agreement achieves is that Republican committee chairs – such as Graham – finally have to relinquish control.

Sad – but fifty votes and a VP only gets you so much.

Now take that gavel and bash the hell out of McConnell. After the gavel gets a little splintery, use it on Lindsey.
