The thunder rolled, the lightning flashed, and a cricket fell from the sky. The eighth investigation. Twenty-five months. Seven Million Dollars. The anticipation of a twelve-year-old boy sneaking into an NC-17 movie. And the day and the hour arrives. It is B-Day – Benghazi Day and the mean, evil, wicked Hillary and her sins will finally be laid bare to the world.
Except there is no there there.
What do you do when you have unearthed the Holy Grail and it is a leaky four-year old Dixie Cup? Trey Gowdy, the human Q-Tip who graciously frequents the Great Clips operated by Careers for the Blind had the undescended testicles to declare to America, “Read 800 pages, make up your own mind, and by the way, Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State.”
Time and time again, Goochie Gowdy, hailing from the “Land of Secession and Lady Lindsey,” implored people who like to read manuscripts slightly shorter than War and Peace to draw their own conclusions by saying:
Asked by one reporter if T-shirts and bumper stickers that read “Hillary Clinton Lied, People Died” are “true,” Gowdy replied, “You don’t see that T-shirt on me, and you don’t see that bumper sticker on any of my vehicles.” Asked more directly if he thinks she “lied,” Gowdy said, “That’s a word you couldn’t use in a courtroom.”
These are good things to know.
Repeatedly, Gowdy confused the laws of physics with statements suggesting if the Pentagon or CIA had done things differently, things would have been different. Fortune cookies have offered more robust syllogistic reasoning.
But I don’t want to talk about Gowdy, I want to talk about one of his committee gnomes and fellow lobotomized T-Baggers, Rep. Peter Roskam, R (Ill. 6th). From the statements and manners of Pete, it wouldn’t surprise me if he doesn’t spend his legislative breaks running about Wheaton, Illinois, in a koteka codpiece that is really a gourd he found at TJ Maxx and a drapery cord he bought on sale at the Home Store.
Roskam has a proud heritage of ethics education. He learned at the cloven hooves of Tom DeLay and Henry Hyde, both champions of a woman’s right to be held as perpetually pregnant chattel.
Roskam, as distasteful as three-month old haggis, clad his agenda in opportunistic heroism.
Lawmakers contrasted the “heroism” of those on the ground with the discussions in Washington. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., described the D.C. attitude as “near fecklessness.” He said, “They were more concerned about how they’re going to offend the Libyan government than how this rescue is going to take place.”
This type of gossamer contrivance is disgusting. He actually dared to say, “Marinate in the 800 pages.” First, it would be more of a dry rub, but to shamelessly use the deaths of these four men for cheap points is the lowest, rock-bottom, gutter politics possible.
And Roskam was not the worst, Jim Jordan (BamBam Rubble’s look alike) and Mike Pompeo (proof life with a lizard brain isn’t that bad) both demonstrated their considerable abilities as political profiteers of grief.
Frauds. Cons. Posseurs. And that’s from their business cards and resumes.
Here are three graphs. These Republican charlatans offer no excuses since there are no explanations.
Their silence is deafening since the quiet allows their cruelest lies to take root.
What’s on your mind today?
