This is a brief diary.  If someone has already posted about Graham's ads using the Benghazi attack and murder of four Americans for his re-election campaign I'll take it down.  

From America Blog and John Aravois:

Lindsey Graham is using our dead ambassador for his re-election campaign. [...]  

Lindsey Graham is running campaign ads about Benghazi.  One such ad was found by Alvin McEwen of Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters on the Talk Points Memo site, and another on Daily Kos (Alvin forwarded them to me) ...

Here's one of them.  

If you go to his website you won't find them, so it's possible he scrubbed them after Aravois' blog post.  Nonetheless, it's a pretty sad statement about Graham and how low he will go.  We got to the bottom of the matter yesterday when Petraeus testified.  Even Senator McCain seemed to realize that.  I guess Graham is so desperate to avoid a primary fight with a potential Tea Party candidate he will say anything.  His seat is up for election in 2014.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
