Quote of the Day

"I know two twins born at 20 weeks."—Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, on the senate floor earlier today. Graham is supporting legislation that seeks to ban nationwide abortions after 20 weeks, because of course he is.

As Laura Bassett, who along with Robin Marty gets the hat tip, notes, the earliest recorded survived birth is 21 weeks and 6 days.

So, he's a liar or a dingaling and quite possibly both.
