Since "Moscow Mitch" was so effective in getting under Mitch's skin, I think we should

push "Lickspittle Lindsey" into the public consciousness. I think it would be more effective in highlighting Graham's salient characteristic than the currently favored "Leningrad Lindsey."

1. I never even head the word "lickspittle"

(and I am unusually well read) so I find your suggestion strange, to say the very, very, least.

2. A lickspittle is a particularly odious suck up. nt

6. It's a thing, and it's been around awhile. A long while.

lickspittle (n.)

also lick-spittle, "sycophant, abject toady, one who will do any repulsive thing," 1741, from lick (v.1) + spittle. Phrase lick the spittle as a repulsive act is from 1640s.

3. "Lackey" or "Limp" work better for me.

4. Not "limp" because it has ugly homophobic nuances. nt

7. I think of limp as incredibly weak, but your point is well taken (not familiar with the use

the way you referenced)

11. Leningrad Lindsey, along with

Baikal Barr, Stalingrad Stone, Petrograd Paul Manafort, Sochi Sessions, Murmansk Mike Pence, etc etc

They pride themselves on their "anti-kommanism," so pile on the Russian connection until their blood pressure goes through the ceiling.

12. I think Leningrad Lindsey is the best moniker for LG...he should be ashamed of himself, holding...

himself up to be a patriotic American and so forth when the reality of the matter is that when you examine his support, his speech, everything else, he is a liar through and through, and isn't by far any of these so called titles, patriotic, American, etc.

One day, history will show just how complacent, how disgusting these commie repugs brought down the country.

13. Some of these Republicans don't see the difference between our flag and Russia's

"They both got red, white and blue, so what y'all going on about?"
