Graham: The ‘happy hour’ debate ‘sucks’

Graham Plays ‘F**k, Marry, Kill’ With Palin, Fiorina, Clinton [VIDEO].

BOULDER, Colo. WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — This is what American politics has come to –- a Republican presidential candidate being asked a PG-rated version of “f***, marry, kill.” Things appeared to get a little awkward when CNN’s Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash asked Sen.

The Washington Post’s David Weigel has an account of a CNN happy hour event featuring Lindsey Graham, and the whole thing is oddly delightful, if only for reminding us of a time, in the sepia-toned long-ago, when Lindsey Graham still existed.Tuesday night at CNN’s “Politics on Tap” event in Boulder, Colorado, special guest bartender Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was asked old bar game question: “Date, Marry, or Make Disappear” — with the choices of Sarah Palin, Carly Fiorina, and Hillary Clinton — though as CNN’s Dana Bash admitted, she did clean up the word “date” from originally being something that “rhymes with truck.” Saying he really had to “watch what I say here,” Graham conceded that he would date Palin, the former Alaska governor, because “we would go hunting on our first date.” It got tougher though when he had to choose who he would want to marry, but Graham finally picked the former Hewlett Packard CEO because Fiorina is “rich” and “she could keep me in the life I’m accustomed to.” Graham did, however, tell CNN that the Democratic presidential candidate can “hold her own” while drinking.

It was not a happy time for Graham, whose brand of folksy charm he says was undone by the lack of a live studio audience. “You’d tell a joke, and no one laughed. Kind of like right now,” muttered Graham, staring into the bottomless depths of a double old fashioned glass half-filled with tepid water, probably.
