Graham has made this threat before By now you’ve heard that Lindsey Graham is responding to the Dems’ fast-tracking of immigration reform by pulling his support for the awesomely tripartisan climate change bill he was set to unveil with Joe Lieberman and John Kerry. He says immigration reform makes it impossible to move on climate change.

But we’ve been here before: Last spring, Graham issued the same threat, saying that if Dem leaders moved forward on health reform it would kill the chance of compromise on immigration.

“The first casualty of the Democratic health care bill will be immigration reform,” Graham said in March, adding that movement on health reform would “kill any chance of immigration reform passing the Senate this year.” Time to wise up to Graham’s game?
