Lindsey Graham’s challenger suggests that he’s a gay

GOP Senator Lindsey Graham’s primary challenger, Nancy Mace, suggested that Mr. Graham, a confirmed life-long bachelor who says he does not want to marry Ricky Martin, is a homersexual (h/t Holy Bullies).

Actually, she called him a “nancy boy,” which is an old slur for “gay.”

Now, I have no problem with anyone suggesting that Lindsey Graham is gay, though I’d prefer they avoid using slurs to do so.

And for the record, while Graham denies that he’s gay, he just might be the gayest heterosexual on God’s green earth.

The question has been out there for years about Graham’s sexual orientation, and his – how shall I put this? – nancy-boy answers, like this one he gave to the NYT magazine in 2010, aren’t helping put the rumors to rest:

During a South Carolina Tea Party rally this spring, one speaker created an uproar by postulating that Graham supported a guest-worker program out of fear that the Democrats might otherwise expose his homosexuality. (Graham smirked when I brought this up. “Like maybe I’m having a clandestine affair with Ricky Martin,” he said. “I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ‘em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.”

Yeah, nothing gay about that answer.

Look, I can’t swear to you that Lindsey Graham is gay.

But let’s just say he might want to avoid stepping foot in Ken Cuccinelli’s Virginia any time in the future.
