Who Inspired Lindsey Graham to Vote for Elena Kagan’s Confirmation? Why, Jesus, of Course!

There’s soon to be an entire wing in the Nancy Pelosi Hall of Ecclesiastical Shame dedicated to Lindsey Graham:

(CNSNews.com) – Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that Jesus’s Golden Rule inspired him to vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court and suggested it would be a good thing for his Senate colleagues to also ponder Jesus’s words as they prepared to vote on Kagan.

“It is divine in its orientation, and it is probably something that would serve us all well if we thought about it at moments such as this,” Sen. Graham said on the Senate floor, as he pointed his colleagues to the Golden Rule and counseled them to look to the wisdom of “somebody far wiser than I am” as they cast their votes on Kagan.

As an associate counsel in the Clinton White House, Kagan was an architect of the legal and political strategy that President Bill Clinton used in vetoing the ban on partial-birth abortion. Her nomination by President Barack Obama in May was instantly endorsed by Planned Parenthood, one of the nation’s leading advocates of legalized abortion.

I agree that more of Graham’s colleagues — Graham included — should have pondered Jesus’s words as they prepared to vote.

As for the Golden Rule — “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” — somebody needs to remind this clown that his job isn’t about him, but rather the people he serves. Graham did unto another as that other will do unto millions of people, both born and unborn. That’s not the Golden Rule — that’s the Beltway Rule.
