I’ve been loath to say much about the Ben-Ghazi circus because in my opinion it’s just another BS-slinging exercise by Faux Newz and the NeoConfederates for the entertainment of their reality-challenged base. For example, if you’re going to grill someone about what they knew about it, and that person was a sitting Senator at the time JUST LIKE YOU, you may have wanted to show up for work every now and again. You know, when the important business was being discussed. Looking at you, Ron Johnson:
Now he wasn’t the only one to have missed out on this briefing – Johnny Yells-At-Clouds was absent too (but hey, why get the facts when you can get in front of a camera and complain about not getting the facts WHILE THE FACTS ARE BEING GIVEN?). But it seems that something this important would have commanded enough of their attention to, well, be in attendance.
