Sen. Lindsey Graham (R, RINO): ‘I ain’t gay’

This has been the, uhh, scuttlebutt around here for at least a couple of years. But this little snippet about South Carolina’s Graham comes from Outside The Beltway:

Lindsey Graham: I Ain’t Gay: “

Senator Lindsey Graham has long been rumored to be light in his tennis shoes.   But, in an interview with New York Times Magazine, he dismisses this rather humorously:

I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ‘em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.

There are a lot of reasons why I’m not a big Lindsey Graham fan, and rumors of holecornery (y’all can figure that out for yourselves!) have little or nothing to do with it. But y’all have to admit he does have a way of making the standard denial.

Another Graham development, brought to my attention this morning by local columnist/blogger/radio personality Jack Hunter, aka The Southern Avenger: Anyone notice ol’ Lindsey hasn’t been hanging around John McCain lately? Shoot, the two were practically inseparable during the 2008 Presidential campaign. But now, Graham is likely thinking of his political future, and McCain isn’t exactly cutting edge these days.
