Dahlia Lithick covers the law-respectin' (kinda, sorta) senator from South Carolina. Graham explains
that the lawbreaking that happened with respect to torture: a) wasn't lawbreaking, b) was justifiable lawbreaking, c) was lawbreaking done with the complicity of congressional Democrats, d) doesn't matter because al-Qaida is terrible, or e) wouldn't be lawbreaking if the Spanish police were doing it.
Lithwick argues that Graham is in other words speaking up for a "national Twinkie defense".
Graham is willing to strap a saddle onto that Twinkie today and ride … and ride and ride.Posted by armand at May 14, 2009 06:32 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Politics
