Allegedly the fit was because immigration would come up before the climate change bill he was working on with John Kerry and Joe Lieberman (so you know that bill would be awesome, right?).
Well, we can't have that. So eventually, the climate bill would come up before the immigration bill, just like President Tantrum wanted -- though he said he wanted both bills. Well, apparently not.
Tonight, Graham told me that he will filibuster his own climate change bill, unless Reid drops all plans to turn to immigration this Congress.
I'm sensing a pattern.
Nice to know that Graham will undoubtedly be personally stroked and caressed on this Sunday's chat shows as a "statesman" while Carl Levin gets the Marcy Wheeler treatment because of Sally Quinn's virginal ear (the one on the left only).
