Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is a “bro with no ho,” according to his colleague, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.).This isn't the first awkward thing Kirk has said recently:
The assessment of Graham’s love life was made during a Senate Appropriations Committee markup on Thursday and caught on a live microphone.
“I’ve been joking with Lindsey,” Kirk can be heard saying. “Did you see that? He’s going to have a rotating first lady. He’s a bro with no ho."
It’s one of several hot-button comments that Kirk has made this year, including suggesting that the GOP should put coffins outside Democratic offices if there was a terrorist attack during a Homeland Security shutdown and saying people “drive faster” through black neighborhoods.Is it fair to point out that Mark Kirk had a stroke in 2012? He's made quite a recovery, as is clear from this campaign ad:
Nevertheless, the American Stroke Association Lists "the inability to inhibit inappropriate behavior" as a possible consequence of stroke. I don't imagine Kirk is unable to inhibit inappropriate behavior, but is his ability to refrain from inappropriate comments somewhat impaired?
I don't know. I just think it's possible that he's having a harder time with this sort of thing than a healthier person would.
