Lindsey Graham is 68 years old, but maybe we should be troubled that he stumbled over his words and forgot a last name.

Using the standard that Republicans and the media have tried to apply to President Biden, Graham might need a cognitive test to see if he is still fit to serve in the US Senate.

The fact is that the top elected leaders in the Congress and White House aren’t young. Vice President Harris is 59 years old, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson is 52, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is 53, and they are the young ones in leadership.

If Republicans are going to try to make an issue out of President Biden’s age, it is only fair that they are subject to the same standard.

Lindsey Graham has been in Congress for decades, and these sorts of brain blankouts happen to him, too.
