What are the Republicans really saying?


Lindsey Graham is an awful speaker. There’s no rhythm to his speech, his gesturing looks rehearsed and the message sounds phony, because it’s delivered like he’s reading it from the prompter rather than speaking to a crowd.

Nevertheless there was one gem in his RNC speech yesterday. I don’t think he or the Republicans really understood what they’re saying though.

Check his speech on YouTube from 5:45 to 5:55.

Here’s a transcript of those 10 seconds:

Let there be no — let there be no doubt about it. We are on the road to victory.

Victory! You can say it at this convention. We are winning!

Pretty usual posturing that has no basis in reality, but the really golden moment came right after he paused for applause. On the gigantic screen behind him they were showing the tombstones of American soldiers in Arlington Cemetery. A screenshot is posted above.

Yes, we are winning, indeed.
