    Obama says, "If you like your plan, you can keep it." When that turns out not to be true (because of forces outside his control) it's a stop-the-presses moment.

    Graham says "The world is about to literally blow up." When that turns out not to be true (because of forces outside of his control) few will remember and nobody will care.

    For Republicans there are no wrong predictions.

    •  Maybe Lindsey was using Kyl language (2+ / 0-)

      Remember when Jon Kyl (R-Of course) from Arizona said that more than 90% of Planned Parenthood's activities are abortion services? (As you said, there are no wrong statements in Republican-land.) He got called out for that whopper, and proffered the lame excuse that his remarks on the Senate floor were not intended to be a factual statement.

      Now that Kyl has left the Senate stage for his sinecure at a law firm defending corporate rapists, Graham seems to be catching the falling flag of Senatorial Privilege to Lie Your Pasty White Ass Off in the Service of Political Points.
