Lindsay Graham made news by saying what no other conservative Republican has wanted to say — the birthers are crazy. He also called them nuts.
Presumably that includes Lou Dobbs who has been one of the birthers biggest allies and was chastised by the president of CNN and told to drop the issue. Dobbs had also been called an embarrassment to CNN by present and former staffers over his support of the birthers.
Graham also called Glenn Beck a cynic which is what you call someone like Beck who says things that might be called crazy but when you’re making the money he is by doing it, you call it cynicism.
Graham probably didn’t single handedly put an end to the birther movement but he did put an end to it as anything the media will continue to cover
