Senator Lindsey Graham, who's...

...considering a run for the White House, admitted on Sunday that he has never sent an email:

"I don't email. No, you can have every email I've ever sent. I've never sent one. I don’t know what that makes me."

How about: Disqualified from the presidency?

I'm not entirely joking. This guy doesn't have a brother or a friend who emails him?

And what does Senator Graham claim is his reason for never sending an email? It prevents him from saying "the first dumb thing that comes to mind."

Now, that can't possibly be. Have you ever seen this guy on TV? In the video above, for example, Graham finishes a rant by saying, "Before we all get killed back here at home."

No, Graham says "dumb things" all the time.

So what's the real reason he's never sent an email?  Is it because, as a United States Senator, Graham has lived a particularly sheltered life? Just listen to what his buddy John McCain -- another senator -- said back in 2006:

"I'm a Neanderthal—I don't even type. [My wife is] just a wizard. She even does my boarding passes—people can do that now. When we go to the movies, she gets the tickets ahead of time. It's incredible."

(No wonder President Obama was in such a hurry to get out of the United States Senate -- it reminds me of my mother's seniors' residence.)

Can you imagine being so cosseted from everyday American life that you have never sent an email? What else has Senator Graham never done, his own laundry? The grocery shopping? How could he expect to lead the country when he's so removed from the average person's experience?

The real email scandal here isn't that Hillary Clinton used her own server; it's that a senator who is seriously considering running for president has never sent one in the first place.
