Lindsey Graham, Liar: ‘Ron Paul Is Not The Leader Of This Party’

Mean old fartsack Lindsey Graham spoke at the “South Carolina GOP Convention” this weekend and made an enemy of RON PAUL and his supporters, the Paultards, by denouncing libertarianism and Liberty. And then he told everyone to leave, because Jim DeMint was about to shoot a firecracker out of his ass.

“Grahamnesty” of course wants to build the Republican Party under the centrist platform of Torture, all the time. Just constant waterboarding everywhere. Some schmuck leaves the house, schmuck gets waterboarded…

Graham told the crowd there was nothing wrong with any conservative, and he wanted to build an open party that could win in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, as well as South Carolina.

“You’re a hypocrite!” one man yelled.

“I’m a winner, pal,” Graham shot back. “Winning matters to me. If it doesn’t matter to you, there’s the exit sign.”

“Ron Paul is not the leader of this party,” Graham said, prompting a few jeers. Some people yelled, “Yes, he is!”

“I’m not going to give this party over to people who can’t win,” Graham finished, drawing most of the crowd to its feet.

But U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, who followed Graham, said he’d rather have 30 senators who stand on principle than 60 who have none.

Ha ha Jim DeMint doesn’t understand how “politics” works. Oh well. THESE PEOPLE HAVE HAD ENOUGH:

Floyd to lead GOP in S.C. [The State]
How about 30 who have none? [Balloon Juice]

    “STFU or I’ll turn this party around.”

    These people with their bags of charisma. Geez.

    Yeah, the “mainstream” (i.e., waterboarding closetted homosexuals) Repubs have done such a wonderful job! There were about a dozen opinion pieces in various national and regional newspapers over the weekend about how the GOP is the party of teh Crazy, with lots of nice wingnutty quotes. Paul could not possibly do worse than these jokers.I doubt, for instance, he would be demanding to know if two hispanic children killed in a hit and run were in the country illegally, as did one Colorado Republican.

    Sometimes you have to admire the sheer balls of the Paultards. Modern Quixotes, all of them, tilting at the windmills of the real….

  4. chascates

    Limbaugh should settle this once and for all. With a GOP stamp, kind of like the blood group tattoos the SS used to have.

  5. StephanieInCA

    ah ha ha he’s just mad cause he wasn’t invited to mark sanford and rick perry’s sexy teabag party.

  6. Crank Tango

    so he isn’t gonna take the party from people who can’t win and give it “over” to people who can’t win?

  7. ManchuCandidate

    The Contard Comedy Tour 06-09 is even funnier than the Blue Collar Comedy Tour in large part because everyone thinks they’re smart, serious and relevant (and not just Larry the Cable Guy.)

  8. Seanibus

    Wow, great video. I haven’t seen that much excitement and vibrancy in a South Carolina ballroom since John McCain conceded the primary in 2000. Those South Carolina Republicans sure know how to throw a party.

  9. SayItWithWookies

    But U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, who followed Graham, said he’d rather have 30 senators who stand on principle than 60 who have none.

    And the sooner the better, Jim.

  10. Anonymous Office Zombie

    I’m not going to give this party over to people who can’t win

    Er… so… is he suggesting that there are Republicans out there who can win?

    Yay! We’re on the same page! Bipartisanship! Comity! Someone wake David Broder, remind him what his name is and where he is, wipe the drool off his chin, wheel him over to the computer, wipe the drool off that, and tell him to write a column extolling the virtues of the 30 Senator Solution!

  12. GleepGlop

    If you don’t like making fun of Lindsey Graham on the wonkette comments thread, then you can GITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT OUT

  13. Gallowglass

    That walkout video was the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. The four of them went really slow, hoping to get people to follow them but noone did, because their walkout reason was retarded. Not that it was a packed house anyway. And the average age of one of those primary participants must be about 80. Seriously, it was like early bird special time at Denny’s.

  14. IceCreamEmpress

    There once was an assclown named Graham
    Whose pronouncements resulted in mayhem
    When the Paultards revolt
    They’ll string up the dolt
    Or Columbian necktie, or flay him.

  15. Toomush Infermashun

    Soo….he doesn’t want anybody in the party that isn’t him, and probably wouldn’t join any party that would have him, but….oh, there’s the exit sign….it’s Monday, I’m happy, and I haven’t even started drinking…this is better than an AA party….

  16. bitchincamaro

    Lousy audio. Did he say he wants to be buried between Ronald Reagan and Strom Thurman, and by that I mean, have gay dead sex with their rotten corpes?

  17. WadISay

    It’s Doctor Ron Paul, bitches! (*slams mouse on “Submit Comment” button and heads for crapper*)

  18. Gopherit

    [re=319302]SayItWithWookies[/re]: it’s like they compromised and settled for 40 with almost no principles.

  19. x111e7thst

    [re=319326]bitchincamaro[/re]: Is there anything I can do to help him achieve this noble goal?

  20. Gopherit

    “I’m a winner, pal!” I bet Lindsey’s been waiting years since his last wedgie to say that to someone.

  21. kthxbai...also

    haven’t heard such them-us arguments in a while. kind of a cleansing to remember that some people are as simple as a pine sapling.

  22. Shot at Wolf

    Hey, I live in the midst of them, and they all look pretty stoopid to me! Gov. Sanford looks, for example, as stupid as he is. So they slap each other on the ass and make like everything is groovy! And they try to imagine the days of yore, when they could still win a national election.

  23. J05H

    No, Graham is right: Ron Paul is not Dear Leader. RAND PAUL is now dear leader. Wake up, sheeple!

  24. JMP

    These guys are really angling to have 2012 be a re-run of 1964, aren’t they? Although even old crazy Barry was sane compared to this bunch.
    And Paultards, no your man does not lead the GOP; that’s the fundamentalists, who are a completely different band of crazy than you folks.

  25. dijetlo

    ” We have to go over there, and fight them over there, so they don’t come over here…”

    FUCK!!!!
    South Carolina is about to attack Texas! Jesus Christ people, we stop burning Atlanta for like two minutes and your declaring war on each other! Cut it the fuck out! We know where General Sherman is buried, don’t make us dig his decomposed ass up and whup you again.

  26. Chickensmack

    For the three people who stood up on behalf of Dr. Ron Paul, I commend them for their pro-weed stance. That’s a daring place to be… stuck between the Republicans and their staunch approval of the Drug War, and the Libertarians who would rather fire up a spliff and… not… tax it…?

    Seriously, who would those three people win over, if you can’t even levy a tax on the ganj?!

  27. Crank Tango

    Maybe Lindsey is right. Maybe she IS a winner. I got ten bucks that says she is so interested in winning on this gay marriage thing, that she will eventually “come out” as a gay, thus proving her winner status.

    What? Lindsey is a boy’s name too?

    Never mind. Wait, never mind never minding. Just replace all feminine pronouns with masculine ones, d’apres Tobias Fuhnke.

  28. Naked Bunny with a Whip

    “You’re a hypocrite!” one man yelled.
    “I’m a winner, pal,” Graham shot back.

    I notice he didn’t deny being a hypocrite.

  29. BklynIlluminati

    I thought the only people that said “I’m A WINNAH!!!”

    Were short bus Special Olympic types

  30. RoscoePColtraine

    How busted does your gaydar have to be to not see the faggotry that is Lindsey Graham getting all wrist wavy and lispy? Southern accents aren’t meant to sound this wussified….also.

  31. Johnny Zhivago

    A “Lindsay Graham” Republican?? Is that the new name for the Log Cabin people?

  32. gjdodger

    [re=319300]Seanibus[/re]: “Those South Carolina Republicans sure know how to throw a party under a bus.”

    Fixed it for you.

  33. DC Hates Me

    Dear Linsdey, constantly evoking Ronald Reagan’s name doesn’t make one Reaganesque.

  34. Itsjustme

    I am stuck at “Mean Old Fartsack” and can’t stop laughing/crying to enjoy the story!

  35. schvitzatura

    Which are the Mensheviks and which ones are the Bolsheviks?

    Awaiting the purity purges!

  36. liquiddaddy

    Later, fighting off the stinging tears, Lindsey realized that for the first time Walnuts was not there to hold him. “He’s with Joe, I just know it!” That bitch!

  37. MsJoanne

    Some convention. I could count the number of attendees using matches in a matchbook.

    Good time to piss off the few who remain.

    GO GOP! I can’t wait for the funeral.

  38. momus

    Aren’t terms like southern republican, Georgia republican, and South Carolina republican oxymorons (oxymorans?). These decendents of secessionists are the real RINOs!

  39. TeddyS

    So, Senator, suppose we buy your comment that Ron Paul is not the leader of the Republican Party. Who is? (Clue. Insert name of Rush Limbaugh here).

  40. zhubajie

    [re=319291]Tommmcatt[/re]: Republifux need to split up into 4-5 parties: religious fanatics (Prot); religious fanatics (Pentecostal); religious fanatics (Catholic); Plutocrat Party (Bush’s base, the Haves/havemores); Rule the world Nazi fanatics; Official Raving Loonie Party (Libertarians). It would be incredibly amusing to see them fight with each other, damn each other to Hell, etc!

  41. zhubajie

    [re=319880]zhubajie[/re]: I forgot to add: Log Cabin Gay Repub Party; anti-Gay party; Dick Cheney party (the sicko pervert torture lovers).

    Actually, if the Dems would split 6-8 ways, that would be good too!
