Of Scumbags and Other RW Medical Devices
I don't actually think that the sole reason that Senator Lindsey Graham gravitates to the supposed Benghazi scandal is because he is a scumbag with several Tea Party opponents. I actually think if he wants to examine why he even has several Tea Partiers primarying him, that might be more useful to him in the long run than trying to gauge why Obama supporters might find his investigation of a cover-up (of a terrorist attack about which a good timeline already exists or possibly about a cover-up of--the process by which White House offcials tried to convey what they knew or thought they knew at any given time--which kind of isn't even a criminal thing, is it?) sort of scummy.
The thing is, if Sen. Graham is curious, that we on the left have a natural suspicion of one of the people who just wouldn't let the Clinton impeachment go. We might be prone to thinking that someone like Graham doesn't hesitate to pull out the stops to create an impression that might not even be true . If we suspect him if a being a bandwagon basic b, that might have to do with his history. I've mentioned his happy talk over buying rugs but that is the tip of a spinny little iceberg in a camera-grabbing world.
I'm not shocked he called the White House "scumbags". Oh hell no. Is that what he has to do? Well then Sen. Graham, you got your work cut out for you, don't you?
In other news, there's some special committee the Once and Probably Not Forever Weaker Speaker of the House John Boehner has set up because he might just be FOX News' tool. Like that won't be a transparently partisan engine running on the vapors of burning bullshit.
Whatever deflects from that one period in history when a GOP-led Congress voted 50-something times to repeal Obamacare, and it still got millions of signups. And otherwise what does the GOP Congress have to show for itself? Hah!
Benghazi is what. And no, that isn't a crutch, just a helpful little Benghazi! Benghazi? NO--BENGHAZI!!
It's nice Sen. Graham doesn't even know when he's being scummy.
