Mind-boggling

I'm not going to spend too much time on yesterday's Benghazi hearings with Hillary Clinton, because I've been told in no uncertain terms that It's Not That Important and By The Way, Shut Up.

Still, I do think the exchange between Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and SecState Clinton was revealing:


"What difference does it make," Clinton asks, concerning the question of what happened.

It made a difference, Madam Secretary of State, because it's actually a matter of good public policy that government officials tell the truth. Based on what we know now, Susan Rice went on a half dozen Sunday chat shows with a series of talking points that were at variance with the facts. There was a time when holding people accountable for such things was standard procedure in Washington.

I miss those days.

Look for a marked increase in the media's curiosity and demands for accountability if a Repbublican administration ever returns to power.

(Sorry - I didn't do the double-post. Blogger asked me to sign in AFTER I published and then, voila, twice the insight (or "incite") for the price of one.

We'll take all the Crankbait we can get.

I saw this covered on some cable show and the background music was Elton John, "The Bitch Is Back". Seemed appropriate. But, what difference does it make. Really?

Oh, and by the way, what kind of crankbait is he/she, a deep diver or a floater? How sharp are his/her hooks?
