Comic relief during the health reform speech

The South Carolina delegation really did its part to bring a dash of nonsense to the president’s speech to Congress about health insurance reform. I’m not just talking about Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst, which he quickly apologized for. There was also Sen. Lindsey Graham’s moment of letting a little common sense seep around his solid partisan front.

Take a look:

Sen. Graham, seated beside his buddy John McCain, actually begins to applaud for a public option, of all things. Instantly he catches himself, turning the gesture into a sort of make-believe hand washing.
