Lincoln Can Suck It!

In Washington D.C. circles, they define a gaffe as "accidentally saying something true." Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) scoops out a heaping dollop of truth:

"We don’t do Lincoln Day Dinners in South Carolina," Senator Graham told a Lincoln Day gathering in Tennessee Saturday. "It’s nothing personal, but it takes awhile to get over things."
Nothing personal against whom, Senator? You mean nothing against the descendants of slaves? I see... Well, it's a good thing you added that part on, or else we might have gotten the mistaken impression that you and your state are still in favor of slavery.

Sort of puts in perspective that whole Republican civil rights freedom calendar, eh?
