So you wish to vote for U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham,R-S.C.? Well, he is and never has been a person who represents the people of South Carolina. Graham cannot go to the bathroom without fellow U.S. Sen. John McCain's OK. He cannot vote his conservative beliefs, if he has any, when it comes to his job of confirmation of Supreme Court justices. Little 'tag-along' Graham thinks any nominated justice must be confirmed, regardless, and he will even go the next step and align with Democrat Senators to keep the Republican majority from the “nuclear option.” U.S. Harry Reid, D-Nev., was so happy.

Folks, we don't need another John McCain. Former Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene would make a more dependable senator, at least we knew what he stood for. South Carolina deserves another conservative senator.
