Round up the usual suspects, it’s time for another “censure” of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham by a South Carolina Republican county party.
The latest venue will be Cherokee County on Monday. But the puppet masters are the same: Talbert Black, Brian Frank and a few other devoted followers of Congressman Ron Paul’s cult-like preachings.
Over the last few months, Frank and Black and been traveling from one South Carolina county to the next — a pair of snake oil salesmen peddling their “Amazing Kool-Aid Flavored Censure Elixir.”
Only, for them, it isn’t about making money. Instead, they and their ilk are seeking to fulfill an ideological mission to commandeer the GOP and see to it that Republicans cannibalize their own. And sadly, so far, they have been somewhat successful.
Black was one of the lead choreographers of the Lexington County “kangaroo court” that “censured” Graham earlier this month, despite less than a third of the party membership voting. A group of four former Lexington County GOP chairs quickly denounced the charade.
“We believe the actions of a disgruntled few will tarnish the years of hard work invested by thousands of Republicans who have worked for years to build our Party,” wrote Scott Malyerck, Katrina Shealy, Butch Wallace, and Lyman Whitehead following the event.
Of course, Black doesn’t care much about the GOP brand. He himself proudly boasts that he isn’t even a Republican.
“I decided many years ago to never compromise my vote (lesser of two evils),” Black wrote in a brief biography of himself. “Since then, I have never voted for a Republican nor a Democratic party candidate for president.”
With Black’s help, Frank has offered a similar resolution in Cherokee County to censure Graham.
Frank, who worked for wingnut Democrat Bob Conley’s U.S. Senate race last year, is quite a character.
In November 2007 he cut this video on his MySpace page where he appears with his creepy Ron Paul shirt and hat in front of an upside down American flag. That was briefly before he became a delegate from South Carolina to the 2009 Continental Congress — you know, like Washington, Jefferson and Adams — and launched a tour to heckle Graham at every possible occasion.
And those are the distinguished folks leading this crusade. Hopefully the good people of the Cherokee County GOP will see through the sham.
UPDATE: Lindsey Graham had one of his people come and speak about Cap and Trade and kept mentioning Off Shore drilling and Nuclear Power and the 2 people that were going to introduce it, WIMPED out! Lindsey ambushed this, he is scared though and we need to keep pounding him!
