Senator Lindsey Graham is just tired of Glenn Beck

All the nastiness, much coming from the Republican/GOP side, eventually will end one way or another. The Republicans were successful in driving President Obama's numbers down, but unsuccessful in raising their numbers up. At this point, President Obama's numbers have recovered some but mostly stabled, on the other hand the Republican's numbers are still in the tank. Knowing all this, you will then realize that what you are doing is not working. This has been the Republican's problems, the public though appears asleep are not always asleep, and when you have the internet for folks to perform their own fact check, eventually what comes out of your mouths are painted as lies and the public moves on.

Maybe, Graham is now the first Republican who has just had enough of the continued bullshit and lies that have festered from all these, "conservative talk show hosts."

Today at the Washington Ideas Forum sponsored by the Atlantic, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sharply criticized “talk radio,, the 24-hour news cycle” for the polarization in politics. He then specifically mentioned Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck:

Can you imagine writing the Constitution — you know, O’Reilly says Ben Franklin’s giving in on something. Can you imagine having to do that in this environment? [Graham said]

Without missing a beat, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg next asked for Graham’s thoughts on Glenn Beck.

“Only in America can you make that much money crying,” Graham said.

Graham also claimed that Beck is “not aligned with any party as far as I can tell. He’s aligned with cynicism. And there’s always been a market for cynicism.” Watch it:
