Benghazi Committee Chair Trey Gowdy is probably not going to invite Kevin McCarthy to his birthday party.

During a Washington Post interview Trey Gowdy was asked his feelings concerning his good friend Kevi McCarthy who last week let the cat out of the bag concerning the reasons behind the Benghazi hearings: 

“I heard from him at 6 a.m. the next morning,” said Gowdy, whose name was recently floated for House majority leader. “How many times can somebody apologize? Yes, he’s apologized as many times as a human can apologize. It doesn’t change it. It doesn’t fix it. The only thing you can say is, instead of listening to someone else’s words, why don’t you look at our actions?” 

“Kevin is a friend, which makes the disappointment, frankly, even more bitter. If faith tells you to forgive somebody…” Gowdy trails off. “It’s tough,” he says after a moment. 

Oooh, somebody just got kicked out of the "No Girlz Allowed" all conservative boy's clubhouse.

After that rather painful exchange Gowdy suggests that, “People should go by what we’ve done. How many people have we interviewed? How many of those people have been named Clinton?”

Okay then let's do that.

They have not actually accomplished anything, except leak like a sieve to the press, and reveal that Hillary had a private e-mail server, which so far seems to have been far more secure than the State Department's which was hacked. 

Oh and as Kevin McCarthy so helpfully pointed out, they have helped to lower Hillary's poll numbers.

But other than that this investigation has been a witch hunt that is embarrassingly low on witches.

And let's also not forget that this is the eighth investigation into Benghazi, and the previous seven found NOTHING!

As for Kevin "loose lips" McCarthy it appears that he will very likely be elected as the next Speaker of the House where I imagine he will be the gift that keeps on the Democrats.

And as for Gowdy himself, well once this is all over he still has one talent he can fall back on.

    I don't understand why McCarthy would admit this. What's the motive? To burn the teaparty? Is Kevin McCarthy changing the guard and going moderate? Does he suspect that the GOP machine is banking on NEO-Con voters to get them back in power?

    I have a feeling Jeb Bush is going to somehow emerge at the top after all the clowns do their acts and tank in the polls. Somehow the Neo-Cons will again take over the asylum. They must know that the asylum right now is running amuck with crazies left and right and soon the white coats will have to tranquilize them and put them back into their wards, and lock the doors.

    1. I guarantee ya' that McCarthy is the proud possessor of no better than a two digit IQ, maybe a 75-80. He's like a kid who can't keep a secret and blurts it out not even realizing what he's doing.

    Trey would release a sex tape of his wife with a donkey, if he thought it would hurt Hillary's poll numbers.

    All the more reason to update the Presidential Order of Succession, and move the Speaker from 3rd in line down to about 10th. Or lower.

    A Tea Party Fascist Will Be Second In Line To the Presidency By Halloween

    ...The two leading candidates for House speaker are mirror images and both will dutifully follow the Ted Cruz fascist agenda and have had no qualms telegraphing their intent to burn down the government if their extremist agenda to eliminate large swathes of government is not enacted. Some pundits claim that both House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Jason Chaffetz (Mormon-UT) are simply spouting their extremist intent to go full-blown tea party on government is to win votes for the House Speaker position, but that is simply not the case. It does not matter which extremist wins the Speaker’s chair, they both comprehend that one false step in “doing everything in their power” to “achieve Republican goals” means following John Boehner out of Congress. It is important to remember that the really extremist wing of the GOP embraces the George W. Bush philosophy that “if you’re not with us, you are the enemy,” and it applies equally to Republicans and Democrats.

    If there is any question just how extreme, and how far, both Chaffetz and McCarthy are willing to go to “achieve Republican goals” of decimating the government, especially as “second in the line” to the presidency, their own words should terrify Americans. Some Americans are aware that, like all Republicans, both maniacs want to eviscerate domestic spending on social programs, destroy Social Security and Medicare, “Christianize” America, wipe out the Environmental Protection Agency and hand corporations and Wall Street power over the people, but it is their blatant threats to shut down the government and destroy the full faith and credit of the United States to achieve their goals that is very revealing. Make no mistake, when these maniacs go on television and pledge to conservatives they will have it their way or they will shutter the government and cause a credit default, they are not bluffing.

    For example, the House Majority Leader and aspirant to the speaker’s chair, Kevin McCarthy, made a pledge on Sean Hannity’s program...

      Bristol Palin: Hillary Clinton Fears My Mom

    2. Anonymous10:59 AM

      In a blog post, Bristol Palin wrote that Clinton's concern with backlash was evidence that the former secretary of state was wary of her mother's influence.

      "The liberals like Hillary Clinton would have you believe all sorts of lies about my mother," she wrote. "But, behind closed doors, we find out all sorts of truths, including the fact that Hillary fears my mom’s power."

      Bristol Palin Must Apologize For Mass Shootings.

      Remember the infamous Palin Family Drunk Brawl of a year ago, when a barefoot and boozed up Bristol wearing “beer and makeup” on her face violently tussled with some foul-mouthed party crasher — without even chipping her perfect manicure! — and while she and Mama sort of admitted it was not the family’s proudest moment, Mama also Facebooked a picture of her violent thug of a daughter pew-pew-pewing her gun, and Mama saying how proud she is of her “straight-shooter” spawn.

    Trey Gowdy and a cockatiel: separated a birth.
    His pointy head disguises the lack of brains underneath.

      With just a tiny bit of makeup Trey could get a role on the TV series "Gotham". They can always use good villains.

    Democrats Turn Up The Heat By Forcing GOP To Vote On Killing Benghazi Committee

    ...The questions that Democrats are raising are shaping the perception of Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the Select Committee on October 22. Republicans were hoping to use her testimony as a platform to criticize and bring down the likely Democratic nominee.

    The Democratic pressure tactics are working. Republicans are being forced to defend their strategy that was supposed to put Democrats on the defensive. Democrats have listened to Republicans use the deaths of four Americans for political purposes for years.

    Majority Leader McCarthy finally gave Democrats the opening that they needed, and now House Democrats are pushing back.

    Democrats Attack Republican Corruption With Ethics Complaint Against Kevin McCarthy

    Rep. Alan Grayson’s ethics complaint Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for misusing taxpayer funds for political purposes is the next step in the Democratic campaign to tackle the Republican culture of corruption in the House.

    Grayson discussed his Ethics Committee complaint on CNN:

    There were 13 attacks on Embassies from 2001-2009, with 60 people killed. Republican outrage: zero.

    Since Sandy Hook, there have been 87,000 Americans shot dead, 142 school shootings, and 247 mass shootings in the first 283 days of 2015.
    Republican action: Ban the CDC from conducting research into the underlying causes of gun violence.

    4 Americans died in a terrorist attack in Benghazi in Sept 2012
    Republican response: 'Eight congressional investigations, one of which is currently the longest-running special Congressional inquiry in US history.

    Yeah, Gowdy,tell us that it's not politically motivated. You've been lying to us for so long, it's habit with you. If you were to tell us the sun rises in the East, I'd be up some morning just to check you.

    Thanks for the duelling banlo version of trey. Haven't laughed so hard in a ling time! Trey reminds me of having to take the crops off cbicks so they don't kill themselves off.

    That was one huge freudian slip, and there's no escaping it. He can beg forgiveness all he wants, but he admitted wasting tax dollars to exploit the deaths of four Americans. And trying to derail Hillary's campaign. Can't wait for the next ben ghazi palooza, Clinton's going to own them.

  18. I can't believe it, Gowdy actually has a pointy head! Not only that but glasses make him look even stupider.

    Sorry, don't usually comment on peoples appearance but that's one weird looking guy.
