Diminished Expectations

Andrew Sullivan nominates South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) for a Yglesias Award, after the senator said:
I am not going to give into sentiments that I think degrade the office of the president and that degrade the debate and the culture of our country. So if you come up to me calling the president a socialist, a Muslim, you’re talking to the wrong guy.

Warranted, and good for Senator Graham. But it's a sad sign of how far we've come that we need to give a door prize to a prominent right-wing figure for not agreeing that the President is a socialist.
