Lindsay Graham Votes for Sotomayor

Liberal Senator Lindsey “I’m a conservative, but I’m no Ron Paul” Graham has once again proven that voting for a Democrat isn’t always the liberal thing to do.

Here is what I mean by this:

Graham, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, joined with Democrats in voting for the most liberal Supreme Court justice nominee ever. Sotomayor is so liberal, that she believes not only that a woman has a legal right to choose to have abortion, but that it is a constitutional right to have an abortion for free (paid at taxpayer’s expense). So even if Congress never passed any law in which funds for abortion were appropriated, she would say that women should sue to have their abortions paid for by the taxpayer and she would rule in their favor. Graham is continuing a long line of liberal, sell-out Republicans who have voted for extremist liberal Supreme Court justices. (A case in point, John McCain voted to confirm both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer to the Supreme Court.) In the 2008 general election, Graham defeated a true pro-life, pro-peace, pro-liberty Democrat, Bob Conley. Who cares if there are 60 Democrat senators? With Republicans like these, they might as well all be Democrats.

I think there may be some other motivations here. Lindsey Graham is a presidential hopeful. He has to remove any possibility of being labeled anti-latino. If his vote would have tipped the scales, he probably would have voted against her. But, since there was nothing to be gained by voting against her, he voted for her. I think she is a horrible candidate, and also think he made a wise move.
