It is rich that a bunch of men who will likely never need to address the first lady at all, are so concerned about what to call her. I mean, I don’t see any of these men getting invitations to the first lady’s holiday parties, do you?
If this were a superhero movie or comic book, I’d enjoy watching Lindsey Graham use his shameless hypocrisy to inspire chaos. Before the final frame or the last page, however, I’d expect him to be soundly defeated. Villains like Graham don’t last long in an ethical world. I don’t know what it says about South Carolina or America that he has prevailed so long in this world. He’s a joke, but a dangerous one.

The one thing I’m absolutely sure about, though, is that it was a great debate with a lot of tremendous insights from those guys on stage, which absolutely, positively wouldn’t have happened if either of those guys had been a woman.
If one woman does something either remarkable or disgraceful, it is seen as a reflection on all women. If one man does something remarkable or disgraceful, it is considered only a mark against him.
As we observe the anniversary of 9/11 today, we should take stock of what our country has become. When those terrible attacks happened 19 years ago, we swore we’d come back stronger, more united, and better than ever. For a while, it looked like we might.
