Gettin' th' vapahs agayin...

Mostly, over in Tinfoilhatland, it's choirboys and maundering no about the "Anglosphere," a fantasy empire where the Queen of England presides, the United States fights the wars, and Sir Winston Churchill knocks back another bottle of brandy as God. But with the SC GOP primary coming up, things are getting a little febrile:

June 10 is the day South Carolinians can rid themselves of a traitorous quisling, Lindsey Graham.  With Bill Connor and Tim Scott in the United States Senate, we will finally have two votes that reflect the conservative values and views of most South Carolinians.
Wikipedia explains the redundancy in the denunciation:

In contemporary usage, quisling is synonymous with traitor, and particularly applied to politicians who appear to favour the interests of other nations or cultures over their own. In American English, the term is less well known than the equivalent phrase Benedict Arnold. But Churchill loved the word, so that may explain the choice.

Just what Senator Graham has done to commit treason remains unclear. Meantime, Senator Tim Scott remains the Clarence Thomas of the U.S. Senate.
