I like Lindsey Graham's style

I have long respected Lindsey Graham for sounding sensible and civil when many other politicians do not.  I really like this silly tweet he put out yesterday criticizing Trump's (or Spicer's) idea to levy a heavy import tax on Mexican goods.  I am not saying I agree with Graham's general defense of free trade, but I like that he can make a very valid, well-argued point in a way that is lighthearted and not so acrimonious as is most of our political discourse these days.  Part of the Resistance will surely have to be such self-deprecating messaging, which can sometimes break through to people when other, more earnest discourse can't.
