Republicans should really focus on the IRS tea party targeting scandal and put Benghazi on the back burner. Look, Benghazi should have been a major scandal. But it wasn’t. And to borrow a phrase, what difference – at this point – does it make?
They fucked up and people died. Then they crassly lied about it so they could win an election. Then they lied about lying about it. And not a lot of people really cared. While it is true that they were lying about what precipitated the deaths of several Americans, it’s not like they wanted that to happen. They were just lying after the fact of the colossal, deadly fuck-up.
I don’t mean to dismiss the malfeasance here. Putting on my best Samuel Jackson voice, I hope they burn in hell. News Flash: The Obama administration lies about shit and doesn’t care if people die.
Film at eleven.
Benghazi was mostly incompetence, covered up by lies. The IRS … now there’s something you can sink your teeth into. That is flat out corruption. That is the willful use of the power of the state to stifle the opposition. That’s pretty plainly totalitarian. Lois Lerner could be frog-marched to prison. AWESOME. And this Elijah Cummings angle is pretty promising too.
What are we expecting in the Benghazi investigation? To find out that Susan Rice lied? OF COURSE SHE FUCKING LIED! And water is wet, and bears shit in the woods.
On the other hand, folks going to fucking jail? Sign me up for that.
