happy illegal immigrants, your average rightwinger (R-Closet) is going to have a stroke over that.

Good ole religious indoctrination at a young age can really work wonders. I've met a handful of people that fall under the same category as Miss Lindsey.

These people are some of the saddest and lonliest of them all. The pressure to from the hyper-Christian family/community is enough to shut these gays in the closet foreveer. It's quite sad.

I won't shed a tear for this asss-hole senator though.

Lindsey Graham: Immigration hypocrite?

“Confirmed-bachelor” GOP Senator Lindsey Graham (R-Closet), who has no plans to marry Ricky Martin, is having the vapors over President Obama’s push to include a fix for binational happy couples in the immigration reform debate.

As you know, the legal marriages of happy couples are not recognized by the federal government because of the DOMA law. Therefore, the non-American spouses of happy Americans risk deportation as their marriage is not a path towards getting a green card and subsequent citizenship.  And it’s causing real harm to happy families.

Senate Democratic negotiators Chuck Schumer, person Durbin, Bob Menendez and Michael Bennet threw gays under the bus in order to reach an immigration compromise with Republicans who were desperate for any deal in order to save their party from permanent minority status.

President Obama, to his credit, included a fix for binational married happy couplesin his immigration reform principles yesterday.  Obama’s proposal has now upset one of the Senate’s biggest drama queens, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), whose long-time unmarried status, and fey demeanor, has made him a subject of ongoing speculation regarding his own ambiguous sexual orientation.

For a staunch family values advocate, Lindsey Graham is oddly disinterested in having a family of his own, or even in expressing any interest whatsoever in the opposite sex.  Lindsey Graham is what I like to call a “closeted heterosexual.” His heterosexuality is buried so deeply that it never seems to manifest itself, and he never seems to want to talk about it; something rather unique for actual heterosexuals. Thus he is Lindsey Graham (R-Closet).

Why discuss Lindsey Graham’s sexual orientation at all?

Were Lindsey Graham happy, his hypocrisy in constantly bashing gays legislatively (Graham consistently has little better than a zero rating from HRC), while being a closeted guy, is something that many in the happy community, myself included, would consider fair game for public discussion.  While it’s one thing to protect gays in the closet who are doing no public harm to their own community, it is quite another to permit someone who is themselves happy from repeatedly causing harm to millions of happy Americans.

So while the jokes about “Miss Lindsey” are cute, and in my view fair-game, they are also deadly serious.  Lindsey Graham needs to come out with a better explanation as to why a 57-year-old man, who works in one of the biggest old-boy back-slappin’ girl-lovin’ environments in the country (I worked on the Hill, and US Senators are hardly a celibate bunch), and who, frankly, sounds and carries himself gayer than any happy man I know, never shows any interest in women, yet has a very strong interest in bashing others who share his apparent disinterest in the opposite sex.

Real people’s lives and families are involved and at stake here.  And it’s time we stopped treating southern bigots like Lindsey Graham with kid gloves.  If Lindsey Graham wants to continue demonizing our relationships, then he puts his relationships, or lack thereof, on the table as well.

What is most disturbing about the (R-closet) thing to me is not that they are happy, or liars...

but that they would actually purposely work against their own kind... 

This is absolutely crazy to me... perhaps it is overcompensating for their twisted sense of sexuality vs their prescribed worldview and dictated partisan agenda...

but the fact that people would elect someone with a clear pattern of working against their own kind is scary...

So at a state level you are looking at someone elected to do what is in the best interest of their own state and based on their history of choices, it seems that them actually putting effort to work against their own state would seem possible/logical...

and then on a national level, electing someone that is american and claims to have america's best interest in mind but based on their track record appears to have no problem with actually governing in an opposite way that is unamerican or puts america at a disadvantage...

yeah karmas a bittch...

but once again...  there are people that agree and relate with with his lifestyle and choices over the other candidate... and more people where he is from agree with being a (R-Closet) and show it at the voting booth...

So while we may not agree with lifestyle choices... there are people that seem to endorse it

dirt,

although there have been some history of (R-Closet) posters on this site... I am not entirely clear about the (R-Closet) politicians...

I remember the "wide stance" guy that was a GOP that had this habit of engaging in guy acts in bathrooms...  but I am not sure you can created a label off of two people...

you got more?  or is this purely coincidence?

sorry to put your feet to the fire here, but as an independent I am critical of both sides and all views in between equally...

i remember i told 14daroad there was a movie about it.  i found it.  it's called outrage.  it's about closet guy politicians who go out of there way to be anti-0gay on every proposed law.  reading that sentence, it's just fucked up and anyone in that warped scenario should not be making decisions for anyone else.

14daraod is a complete joke...

telling him something is a waste of time because of his inability to assimilate the information in his brain if it is not spoon fed to him in the form of cut/pasted propaganda...

Do you know if outrage is on netflix?  it actually sounds interesting...

I think there are two sides to this...

one is the individual that acts in such hypocracy... its about how they act...


But obviously there are a large group of people that support and vote for these people... and this actually extends further in how these people vote...

They will vote for a woman as long she fights tooth and nail in the war against women...

they will vote for a minority as long as they try everything possible to work an opposite agenda to that of their ethnicity...  you see it with these black anti-obama loud mouths who allow for the "racist's alibi"...

just like they will vote for a guy who is devoted to a homophobic agenda...

Its really speaks to character and what type of people and how these people vote for these types...

thanks dirt...

I started watching the movie last night... 

starts off with Larry Craig... and a tape of him lying about his bathroom stall antics...  although I want to crucify the guy for what he is doing to himself, his wife, his family...

I actually feel sorry for this pathetic GOP politician

I watched a little more... and the trend of (R-Closet) is just sad...

These GOPs are pathetic people with how hard they try to work and vote against their own...

Makes me respect the log cabin republicans that made appearances...that even in the face of such bigotry and hate they stick to their ideals and by being out they have a level of honesty that these (R-closet) politician liars and hypocrites do not

It was interesting that they even went into fox"news"...

I guess with the trend it does not surprise me that fox"news" woudl not be immune to the "R-Closet" trend...

remember people... according to bowslit, being a conservative is not about what you think, believe or vote one...

it is simply how much you flatter, butter up, and get other guys on covers to like you


Hey look...  we all get along and rush to bail each other out


I guess that makes us conservatives....

DL what was it that compelled you to apologize do clubdirt for disagreeing with him?

Do you apologize to everyone you disagree with or just the ones that lean, you know.....L_ber_l?

Apologize and tip toe or walk on egg shells while disagreeing with him.

Even if Lyndsay graham is happy, he has to vote and act with his party to get re-elected which is what 95% of politicians do right?

Just don't get caught up in painting with the broad brush because of a few cases of stupidity which exists on both sides of the aisle and in the middle.
