Sen. Lindsey Graham ‘white men’ joke surfaces

By David Cohen, Politico, October 30, 2014

Sen. Lindsey Graham’s possible 2016 presidential bid may have just gotten a bit more complicated.

An audio recording provided to CNN captured the South Carolina Republican joking at a private Charleston club that “white men who are in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency.”

According to the CNN report Wednesday, Graham confirmed the veracity of the recordings. Graham was speaking to the Hibernian Society of Charleston, a charitable group with an all-male membership.

In the recording according to CNN, Graham is heard saying: “I’m trying to help you with your tax status. I’m sorry the government’s so f——- up. If I get to be president, white men in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency.” [more]

knicker[1]I'm in favor of all-male clubs, and the Hibernian Society can't help being white, even if they wanted to. (Hibernians are very pale.)  All-male clubs are persecuted by the IRS and state governments, and more about the Hibernian Society's tax status than I care to know can be found here.

However, the specific white men in all-male clubs who would do well in a Lindsey Graham Presidency are rich white men in rich men's clubs. If you're a working man, and a member of a working man's club, your job will be taken by an amnestied  Mexican.
