Nice shot Hills. The only accountability review board hearings ever released to the public, 2 out 18, were for events that occurred during Democratic administrations. I did not know that. Curious. The Grey Toady now has questions...

Peter G

Gee. I always thought discussions relating to the pros and cons of dealing with any issue involved having people offer the the pros and cons.

Peter G

Oh Hillary say it isn't so? You didn't cause the revolution in Libya did you? The question you were asked seems to suggest that. Pardon me, not suggest, assert as fact.

Bob

I'd rather chew aluminum foil than watch the hearing, and was glad you've taken on the task. At this point, however, you've had nothing to add for two hours. I'm beginning to suspect it's unexciting.

Peter G

It's actually very interesting Bob. Frankly Hillary is doing extremely well. Nothing new factually of course but that was never to be expected. The Republicans are getting very frustrated. If you want more entertaining stuff read the comments at places like The Wire which is also live streaming. They don't much like what they are hearing and have consigned Hillary, on the basis of this testimony, to life in the electric chair. which conclusion they reached before Clinton even spoke.

a la Dan Savage and his online Santorum project (if not familar just google the word Santorum) I was looking for a verb which defines panicked, frantic and ultimately failed masturbation prompted by fear of impotance which could be replaced by the infinitive to bengazi. I failed to find one but did find a noun which better represents these proceedings than Congressional Hearing. Henceforth these are the Bengazi Panic Wank.

Every time I see him on screen Trey Gowdy evoked a reminder of someone else. It finally clicked, he's Ed Grimeley. That's who he reminds me of. C'mon Trey, just for me, spit it out....I must say.

Bob

Perfect. Extreme masturbatory exhibitionists.

Bob

Well, that's the thing. It was all a foregone conclusion, everybody had already guessed how they'd be grilling Hillary because of the witnesses they'd called previously and she is the most seasoned person in the world at putting up with this kind of desperate idiocy from Republicans. The chances she's going to screw it up are tiny. Not that the R's won't claim she did no matter what. And expect the idiots in the media to all wank along.

Rest assured, the GOPers will emerge from this farce saying Hillary's testimony "raised more questions than it answered", Hillary was "evasive" or "condescending", which raises "concerns," and that they will press on with their heroic investigation.

It will have more trouble than usual passing the laugh test, but given how Ron "Severe Dementia" Fournier has already slapped together some both-sides-do-it bullshit to give them cover, they'll soldier on.

Since 'Hardblow' was preempted I watched a few recorded minutes of Lynn Westmoreland wallowing in aggressive irrelevancy and interrupting almost every answer. When I turned the TV back on later I happened to catch the last 10 minutes or so to watch Hillary do a victory lap around the room shaking hands and smiling. Gowdy left quickly, covered in a sheen of sweat and with an expression like his doctor had just told him he had an STD he's have to explain to his wife.

Bob

... an STD *he'd* have to explain to his wife.

Peter G

If anyone had any doubts about Clinton's physical fitness for the job of president that at least should be resolved. I was exhausted by the end of this thing. Muhammad Ali would have given a nod of respect. Rope a bunch of dopes? No problem.
