The self-owning of Lindsey Graham

We need a palate cleanser after 72 hours of nonstop breaking news. This leftover from Tapper’s show yesterday will do the trick. Embarrassing politicians with old soundbites is the stock in trade of TV news but how often do you get a guy on tape saying the opposite of what he used to say nearly *verbatim*?

Pretty mild by the standards of Trumpist converts, even so. Remember, Marco Rubio went from believing Trump was unfit to wield the nuclear codes to endorsing him in the span of about three months. Each anti-Trump Republican evolves into an anti-anti-Trumper at his own pace, I guess.

Bonus points here for Grahamnesty in attributing his own position last year to the dreaded fake-news media this year and then scoffing at them for it.
