At a time that called for thoughtful, considerate, and compassionate dialog, Graham spouted ignorant, exclusionary explanations as though they made sense. The man is an idiot.

But, there's more.

Nikki Haley, South Carolina's Republican governor, was asked about the Confederate flag at the capitol before the Graham interview. Her response is simply pathetic.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley "previously rejected the notion of removing the [Confederate] flag at a debate last year, saying it was a 'sensitive issue' but that she didn't believe the flag presented an image problem for the state because she never had "one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag.'" ABC News, June 18

U.S. companies headquartered in South Carolina include Denny's, Extended Stay, and Muzak. European companies "that call South Carolina home" include Adidas, BMW, and Michilin. Maybe the CEO's she's hiding behind will give the governor a call and let her know how they feel. Or, maybe the CEOs will get some calls asking their opinion on the flag.

As for Senator Graham, the stunning ignorance and insensitivity of his remarks are beyond the pale. He is truly a lost cause.
