DIPLOMCAY AND STATECRAFT VS. HATRED AND BIGOTRY
AND THIS VICTORY IS LONG OVERDUE
|THE AGONY OF DEFEAT|
JUST A SHORT RECAP OF THE ELEVEN HOUR IMPLOSION OF THE BENGHAZI HEARING
|HILLARY CLINTON'S EXASPERATION|
This week’s scintillating House of Representative’s “Select Committee on Benghazi” featuring a calm, cool, collected, intelligent and superbly prepared former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, against the sweating, hatred spewing, foaming-at-the-mouth head of the Freedom Caucus, Jim Jordan (R-OH) unrolled pretty much as I anticipated it would. Hillary, no stranger to vituperous demagoguery, slander and innuendo (she’s been deflecting this shit since the 1990’s) not only gave an eleven hour instructional workshop in diplomacy and statecraft to the Republican bozoos on the committee, but superbly demonstrated her presidential chops like no other candidate – Republican or Democrat – could. She won this one hands down even though I hate to characterize the Hearings as some sort of slugfest. But, in fact, that’s exactly what it was.
Following the eleven hours, a reporter asked Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) out in the hall what he learned that was new about Benghazi. His response? “Well, I’ll have to look at the transcripts.” What? And this is what our tax dollars are paying for? Eleven hours of hearings and the fucking Chairman couldn’t come up with a single new fact or even some marginal political new insight after all that? Wow. Can you spell “defeat?”

The Select Committee on Benghazi hearings are only the latest foray into what I’ll call the conspiratorial world of Right Wing/Tea Bagger politics of which Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) (he with the blood flowing from every pore as he ‘questioned” Hillary,) head of the obstructionist, nihilist, good for nothing Freedom Caucus as his performance so amply demonstrated. They KNOW that the four dead Americans in Benghazi is Hillary Clinton’s fault and they will not stop until they PROVE it, multiple Congressional hearings and God alone knows how many official factual reports (I think it’s seven or eight) that have shown otherwise. It’s the same “theory” meme (like evolution or gravity, for example) that keeps the right wing frothing at the mouth. They believe that “theories” are ultimately unprovable so, therefore, “could be true even though data, facts and statistics tend to prove otherwise,” the same “theories” that they still hold about Obama as an illegitimate, secret Muslim, Communist President. And there is no convincing these nut-jobs that their nut-job conspiracy theories are just batshit wrong.

On the other hand, we all had a good time watching the Republicans on the “Let’s Drag Out The Four Dead American Bodies From Benghazi One More Time Select Benghazi Committee” simply implode over an agonizing eleven hours of questions and testimony and never once landing a knock-out punch to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In fact, the whole cirque d’idiocy charade pretty much cemented Clinton’s hold on the Democratic Party’s nomination for President in 2016. She looked and acted presidential in the face of the smarmy, snide and spiteful antics of her Republican inquisitors.
Now it’s on to Planned Parenthood. Yes, the Republicans in the House of Representatives have called for and already selected members for a new round of public hearings focused on another fake scandal. And wouldn’t you know it? This select committee too is made up of the Freedom Caucus’ Tea Party nut-jobs. The Dems are contemplating sitting this one out. What they should do is derail this effort with legislation. I’m thinking that a bill could pass both branches of Congress now, since I’m betting that there are enough Republicans in both the House and the Senate who do not want to be so thoroughly embarrassed on national television one more time like they were with the Select Benghazi Committee. And, of course illegitimate President Barak Obama would eagerly sign such a bill.

Maybe Jim Jordan should have stuck to modeling! I mean the guy was cute!
