[Don't] Stop Digging

I absolutely love it when some Republican luminary--hell, doesn't have to be a luminary, just an ordinary run-of-the-mill Republican--actually either on purpose or accidentally says something that's true. It's not their normal way. Such is the case and such my satisfaction with reports that the senior GOP senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham basically told defeated party standard-bearer Mitt Romney to shut the f--k up. Not only that, but the way he said it was kinda cool.

Last week Mittens broke his silence on the election drubbing he took by blaming his loss on all the free goodies the president showered on minorities, Hispanics, students, and other undesirables. Things like free health care, a break on student loans, a partial dream act for children of illegal immigrants, etc. (NY Times story on that here.)

Well, today on Meet the Press Senator Graham slapped Mitt's jowls but good:
“We’re in a big hole [and] we’re not getting out of it by comments like that . . . When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging.”
“Self deportation being pushed by Mitt Romney hurt our chances . . . We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of rhetoric around immigration and candidate Romney in the primary dug the hole deeper.”
Well, maybe Mittens can stop digging, but I'm sure digging this.
