I interviewed Graham on Sunday, via e-mail. He might not be Romney’s primary opponent, but the arguments he makes will be echoed by Romney’s actual adversaries…

“In this political moment, with Americans crying out for authenticity, Mitt Romney stands alone as the single most in-authentic politician in the GOP. Romney — who ran to the left of Ted Kennedy in his U.S. Senate race, then tried to run to the right of John McCain, in 2008 — is authentically in-authentic. He’s just waiting for someone to let him know what he needs to say in order to win, and he’ll happily say it.

“In a way, it’s almost refreshing. Romney is sincerely insincere. When he’s fake, he really means it!”
