Video: Lindsey Graham heckled at South Carolina town hall

A video companion to our Headlines thread about him repeatedly urging the crowd last night in Greenville to “chill out.”

One man told Graham he had “betrayed” conservatism and made a “pact with the devil” by working with Democrats, and asked when Graham would switch parties.

Graham said he’s not going anywhere and instead would grow the party, defending his conservative credentials on such issues as abortion and guns, and calling the view of Libertarians who believe President Bush was a war criminal “nuts.”

“We’re not going to be the party of angry white guys,” Graham said to more shouts.

The second clip shows the crowd yelling at him about cap and trade, the first clip has them screaming that he’s a phony Republican. The audio’s poor but you can make out him lecturing them about building the party and how, if they don’t like it, they’re free to leave. So why am I on his side? Watch the first clip and see for yourself who it is that’s heckling him and what they think about, oh, say, George Bush. I’ll take Grahamnesty over these tools any day of the week.
