The reviews of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's GOP challengers are coming in from some national media circles and they are, well, interesting.
Consider this post from Charles P. Pierce on Esquire's website:
From the home office of American sedition, the folks at Right Wing Watch bring us Bill Connor, one of the more interesting of the aspirants seeking to rid the Senate of incumbent Huckleberry J. Butchmeup, which is a laudable goal in theory, but not necessarily if the option is some guy waving his pocket Constitution around like Harry Potter and his wand.
Then after showing clips of Graham's challengers denying global warming during the S.C. Tea Party convention debate in Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago, Pierce wrote:
Never miss a local story.
Anybody still trafficking in the "Both sides do it" theory of political polarization is now obligated to find me a field of Democratic senatorial challengers anywhere in America that's as close to going off the cliff to the left as this bunch already has on the opposite end of the spectrum. These are the mole people.
No mistaking what Pierce thinks of the field.
His post is based on an item from Right Wing Watch.
