Read the original post here: Lindsey Graham Censured By SC GOP
This is real good news but some folks are coming up behind the scenes:
A new wind is blowing through the Republican party and some old hands who don't change with the times may be in trouble.
The Charleston, SC county executive committee of the Republican party has had it with Senator Lindsey Graham's crossing party lines and has censured him.
Party leaders are "fed up" and want Graham to know that they are, according to a story in the Charleston Post and Courier by Robert Behr: [...]
The New York Times Caucus blog reported moments ago that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has been censured by the local Republican Party in his home state "for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina."
In essence, he's getting slammed for being what conservatives call a RINO -- Republican in name only. [...]
Bottom line? The folks back home are sick and tired of his blatant disloyalty. He is to represent the folks back home and not some defeatocramp someplace else. For myself and many others of the Vets For Freedom, we are also sick and tired of his treason.

Sic vis pacem para bellum
Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican with a maverick streak, has been censured by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina [...]
Lindsey Graham. IDIOT.
Here is the Censure:
"Whereas, U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (SC) and John Kerry (MA) have called for a bipartisan bill dealing with "climate change" via a "Cap & Trade" energy bill;
Whereas, the basis of Cap & Trade - global warming caused by carbon emissions - is still in doubt as evidenced by the past decade of cooling temperatures;
Whereas, the people of South Carolina can ill afford the job-killing Cap & Trade bill's ripple effects on our state's economy and on personal energy bills;
Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham supported TARP and has shown a willingness to discuss nationalizing U.S. banking institutions;
Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has shown a condescending attitude toward his constituents by calling them "bigots" when they oppose his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens;
Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has stated on many occasions that his primary concern is to "be relevant";
Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham continues to hold the Republican Party hostage and undermines Republican leadership and party solidarity for his own benefit by joining the "Gang of 10" and the "Gang of 14";
Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham - in the name of bipartisanship - continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism.
Therefore, let it be resolved: The Charleston County Republican Party Executive Committee respectfully requests, with sincere sadness that the South Carolina Republican Party withdraw their resolution commending U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and that the Charleston Country Republican Party censure U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a "Cap & Trade" energy bill, bailing out banks, and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.
