The Daily Mail recently asked Senator Lindsey Graham the unimportant question that no one was thinking about. Who would be the first lady if he became the third bachelor president? “I’ve got a lot of friends. We’ll have a rotating first lady,” he said, a plan that sounds oddly like it was cribbed from The Bachelor. Not that you could fault Graham for making such a proposal — the whole Republican presidential primary could be described in sentences borrowed from The Bachelor’s Wikipedia page: “The participants travel to … exotic locations for their adventures, and the conflicts in the series, both internal and external, stem from the elimination-style format of the show … It is common to accuse a contestant of not being on the show ‘for the right reasons,’ meaning that [his or her] aim is not to establish a relationship with [voters], but rather to garner publicity for [his or her] own career.” Sounds about right!
Later in the interview, Graham noted, “Casablanca is like one of my favorite movies of all time,” and “I’m actually a fun guy. I’m a lot of fun to hang around with.”
