Lindsey Graham tweets but doesn’t debate
Lindsey Graham, senior Senator from the State of South Carolina, was one of the senators who voted to prevent debate on the background checks bill. Graham doesn’t like debate in the Senate, he often supports filibuster (which ironically originally meant to continue debate; i.e., preventing voting;under the revision yo the filibuster rules in the Senate, it now just mean no voting and therefore it obviates the need for debate). But he is a great fan of twitter. Today he tweeted on and on his little thoughts on immigration, gun rights, Benghazi and the usual wingnut subjects.
He had a special tweet on the Boston bombing suspect:
The limitations of tweets are such that he could not expand on this thought. (Not allowing for expanded thoughts is what drew Graham to twitter in the first place.) And we know he doesn’t debate, so we may never know why he believes the 2nd Amendment deserves unrestricted application while a suspect should be deprived of his 5th Amendment rights at his say-so. Maybe because those who profit from unlimited gun sales contribute money to him and his while those depending on procedural protections in criminal cases usually cannot buy off senators?
Since he won’t debate, we’ll never know. Unless of course we’re in the inner sanctum of the NRA.
