Hear Ye, Hear Ye…Benghazi!

From Album 5

So, the grand, august Select Committee on Benghazi, chaired by Trey Gowdy — who both looks like a Trey AND someone who can’t resist the occasional costuming as a Confederate General from South Carolina because there were “men of honor on BOTH sides” — began…

Charles Pierce seemed surprised at the lack of fireworks…for now…though Dave Weigel suggested this track might be just the way to score points against Hillary Clinton.

But that demonstrates the whole nature of this clown show. I’m not naïve to the point of thinking Congressional Hearings are anything but political theater, but they tend to least premise themselves on something other than bloody shirt waving to a rabid base…and while Gowdy tried to play it cold and sober in the opening session, Weigel immediately emphasized the political ramifications.

Just me, but I side with Pierce on this one: the only real question is when-not-if-the mud starts flying. The nits and crazys addicted to Faux, Rush, et al, need their fix…

And the hearings themselves deserve no more than third billing at the amusement park.
