After I posted the rant below, this came to my attention – I’ll bold to prove a point, yes – this excerpt is the bottom half of one of three pages:
The Republicans see Benghazi as a political opportunity, a way to swift-boat Clinton and lacerate her up as much as possible before 2016.
On Jan. 23, Clinton appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, a tea party darling, wanted to talk about the talking points.
“We were misled that there were supposedly protests and that something sprang out of that — an assault sprang out of that,” Johnson said, “and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the American people could have known that within days and they didn’t know that.”
Clinton, a former senator and now a former secretary of state, knows how to put up with guff. But she figured the American people had put up with enough guff when it came to Benghazi.
“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” she replied. “Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator.”

First, to “Swift-Boat:” The act of telling the truth about a Democrat. Don’t ever forget it.
I guess this is the difference between me and those like me, and so many female peers of mine who “admire” Hillary Clinton. To me, she remains the absent-substance coattail-rider who’s wrecked all she’s touched. To my overwhelmingly bitch-friends who admire her, she’s … HillaryClinton.com. They can’t see beyond the notion she’s a Woman, has a Vagina, A Daughter and “overcame” the stigma of the husband whose coattails she rode while he fucked everything that moved.
Reminder: Hillary Clinton has wrecked every single thing she’s been associated with AND, fwiw, been put in charge of. Putting the touchy details of her marriage aside, she has Whitewater, Healthcare, and Benghazi to her name, and that’s just the big ones. She is, was and remains a failure of human ability and the punchline is that her failures come at our expense. She continues her Quixotic attempts to re-imagine light-bulbs and mouse-traps at public expense. To the sober observer, she is of below-average intelligence, stocky build, fiery temper, and would best be suited in a position that demands much authority and little responsibility – she’d make a fine high school guidance counselor, at least at firs blush.
Heh – first blush, whatever.
To wit, this: the burden of being Hillary.
I’ve never met her, but I assume with 90 percent accuracy she’s an awful human being, and with 40 percent accuracy I assume her daughter hates her. What I’m sure of is that, for 20 years of my adult life, she’s been fucking up every single public initiative she touches.
Oh, and she sreeches when riled. Crows do this too, and they’re among the smartest animals on Earth. I consider it both heresy and complimentary to put Hillary among those screeching black birds – she’s about as welcome, and about as smart.
