So Hillary Clinton's testimony before the House Benghazi Committee is not yet over. What did we learn, if anything thus far?

Well I for one learned that I can watch cable news, tweet, blog, clean house, and workout all at the same time which makes me wonder why a renaissance man like myself is not dating more?

I also learned that the Republicans had really NOTHING to work with today.

I also learned that Hillary Clinton has absorbed a little of Obama's cool.

"Were you trying to trip me up? That's just adorable."
I was also reminded of this:

Which was backed up in the most blunt manner possible by Rep. Jason Chaffetz back in 2012: 

On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security." 

"Absolutely," Chaffetz said. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

Which kind of makes me wonder how these Republicans have the cojones to grill Hillary on why there was not adequate security to protect Ambassador Stephens.

"Look in the mirror assholes!"

Another thing that I learned today is that while Rep. Elijah Cummings was clearly today's MVP, that Rep. Adam Schiff came in a close second.

Oh, that is like political soft core porn for a Democrat!

I also finally figured out who else Trey Gowdy keeps reminding me of:


Ahh. the House of Slytherin. That explains a lot!

The other thing that I learned is that if I NEVER hear the word "Benghazi" again that will still be too soon.

    1. Are you kidding me? After the drubbing they got today, they're going to bend over again? Voluntarily?

      I wonder if they are just going to keep going until Clinton's numbers go down.

      Do you think they'll be able to connect the dots when the numbers go up after every day of testimony?

      I am appalled voters were stupid enough to elect and re-elect such STUPID PEOPLE.

      I guess love isn't the only thing that is blind. Hate is blind too. And vengeance.

      The inquisitors accomplished something with this BS. Hilary looks so PRESIDENTIAL. It appears she HAS learned "keep cool" from our President. She made those clowns look so foolish, they should run home with their tails between their legs. What a pathetic looking bunch the gop/tp is. Hillary looked great, was very cool, calm and collected in spite of knowing she was the only ADULT in that room, with the exception of the other dem. politicians.I wonder if Issa the Pisser watched this, he probably was not allowed into the hearing.

    But watching these hearings today, I have to say that the committee might have just guaranteed her election as President. She has stood up well under disgusting, insulting, repetitive, and rabid-dog partisan ranting.

    My takeaway from over 9 hours of relentless badgering is that the Republicans just handed Hillary Clinton the election. She was calm, measured, forthright and came across as a strong leader who can spar with the toughest opponent. They just sealed the deal by looking like petulant asses. Thanks guys for spending my tax contribution on this sham.

      of a kind. Smart, fearless, determined, beyond the usual cheap political fencing and posturing.

      Fearfully and wonderfully made, they are, like president Obama. Nothing short of Biblical language can do them justice. Their strength is both a blessing and a curse. God grant that they use their gifts wisely.

    Sorry! I completely spaced out. Okay, I have to be kind of delicate because… f-ck it.
    So my bf is a commercial fisherman up in Bristol Bay (occasionally I crew for him), and he fishes alongside Todd Palin in the summer. Additionally, one of our good friends is a longtime Palin family friend (we constantly tease him but by all accounts he swears Todd is a good dude), so I always get the insider stories and it’s why my face turns purple every time there is a post about them here.
    Anyhow, the year the Palins had their stupid documentary Sarah and her brood were crawling all over the town we fish out of. This town is teeny tiny btw, there is like zero anonymity. It’s also a very pro-Palin town too, as they have Alaska Native roots there, so one does not speak unkindly of them in public. A friend of mine starts telling me that she’s boinking James Palin, and I was like, yeah whatever, who cares. And then she starts telling me these stories…like super lurid stories of shit that he was into, stuff you wouldn’t make up unless you were a sociopath, but I was busy fishing and couldn’t be bothered. So THEN, she starts sending me screen caps of their FB convos and dude, a) the guy is a total dog (supposedly on a trial separation from his wife, whom eventually divorced him), b) not even going into the sexual details because it makes me want to com (NASTY), but c) he talked so much shit about Sarah it was unreal. That she was cheating on Todd (apparently James and Sarah had a fling too, something about being a knob gobbler, but she broke it off), she’s a total drunk who lets her kids do whatever they want, Bristol is the town bicycle and the rumors about Sarah’s last baby being Bristol’s were true, how her thirst for fame completely destroyed Todd & Sarah’s marriage, talk about swinging…should I go on? He sounded like a jilted lover, he totally despised her. So take that all with a grain of salt, people.
    Then this douche James invited my friend to Hawaii with his kids, wanted to marry her, (also wanted to f-ck her friends) guy was just a piece of work. FWIW, my friend isn’t exactly playing with a full deck so he was 100% taking advantage of her. Ick. The whole family is revolting.
    From personally experience, Sarah is a hag. Literally. I’ve met her more than once and her voice makes me want to rip my hair out.
    The End.

    P.S. I’m mad at all of you now for making me type that out AND I’m going to hell.

  28. WTF is this noise about Track Palin and Iraq, or, Afghanistan?

    Track Palin is not in Iraq or Afghanistan. He's in Alaska, strung out on dope, flashing his middle fingers, and trying to get in Jordan Leowe's panties.

  31. Gryphen should write a book about the seemingly indelible mark Sarah Palin has made, not so much on American politics, but on American culture. Here he wrote a post on Hillary Clinton's masterful and unflappable responses to a prolonged, fruitless Republican fishing expedition.

    But predictably, some of his loyal readers drag in the Palins. What's the fascination with this family? Gryphen might be able to explain the phenomenon. He probably has the most Palin comments, since most other Palin bloggers stopped posting about her some time ago.

    With the help of a good ghost writer, and some research on the psychology of the Palin obsession, Gryphen could probably come up with a marketable manuscript.

      Gryph and Malia have continued to highlight and comment on palin since 2008. Sad,but necessary to keep an eye on the unemployed shit stain from the dead lake. Too bad that we have to spend time on her however it is a reflection of how far down the tube the republican party had gone then continued to do even more so over the election of a black man. For as long as palin is around,she needs watched. Until the day she's locked up. Besides all that,u just can't beat the Entertainment factor.

  34. I expected the hearing to be over by the time I got home from work, but it was still going strong.

    I have watched a number of Congressional inquires over the year. Never have I seen those doing the questioning yelling at the witness. And as we all know (or should know), you lose the argument the minute you start yelling.

    It was pathetic. But through it all, Hillary was cool, calm and collected.

    I hope this ends this foolishness. Then again, a couple more of these hearings and we might just see the House AND Senate switch to Democratic majorities.

      I watched snippits and was especially taken aback by that rude congressman from Ohio (Jordan?). Hillary maintained the patience of Job and truly made her questioners look like idiots and, above all, haters of women. Whether or not you love or hate Hillary, as a woman you really should be exceptionally proud to share a gender with her.
      And for all the haters of Clinton wealth, I thought you all believed the US to be the land of opportunity (to make as much money as one possibly can) so how can you denigrate Bill and Hillary for amassing their fortune? Hypocrites, the lot of you!

    Read the story of how the Bush Crime Family made their wealth.The Clintons used their intellect to make money. Too bad the Bush clan has very low I.Q's, watching Jeb! brings home that point. Bill has CHARISMA ro go along with his political skills.

      Just ask Monica Lewinsky. Old Bill's inappropriate relationship with her led to Al Gore distancing himself from Clinton and cast a pall over Gore that cost him the presidency. Meanwhile the Clintons gladly hobnob with the Bushes. So I guess Bill is fine with the Bush Crime Family.

    She did a fine job answering questions. However, I think she'll live to regret spending so much time with her elbow on the table and her chin in her palm. I wish she hadn't. The optics of it were terrible for her. I think it was a lapse of good judgement, slovenly, and disrespectful of the institution of the House regardless of what jackasses Trey Gowdy and Co were being. She's better than that. You'd never see Pres Obama do that no matter how much he wanted to show his defiance for his opponents. And I think we're going to see the Pugs use it against in her in ads.

  37. Which kind of makes me wonder how these Republicans have the cojones to grill Hillary on why there was not adequate security to protect Ambassador Stephens.

    "Look in the mirror assholes!"

    It pains me to say that Hillary's problem is one of style. Many conservatives and Republicans will concede that she is one smart and talented woman even if they hate her political views. She freaks out people on the other side of the aisle when she swerves to the left of Bernie Sanders on some things and to the right of Bernie Sanders on other things. I understand Realpolitik but most conventional politicos, at least on the right wing, expect doctrinaire dogmatic adhesion to prescribed positions on every issue. You might as well have robots and automate the whole process. I am no fan of Hillary not because of Benghazi or Whitewater (if it is a crime to lose money on personal investments, then most of us would be in jail) or email or any other partisan Republican BS. She is running for president. That is a job interview. Men dress for the job interview by wearing suits. For a woman that is a skirt or dress. She wears pantsuits. I am not even listening to what she has to say for that reason alone. The first female president should look like the CEO of a major corporation or like a governor. Last time I checked, female governors and female CEO's of Fortune 500 companies mostly wear dresses and skirts. Pantsuits are for women who are not at the top. Books on personal image and The Power Look say this. Sorry to be abrasive but running for president is a job interview like any other. It is a tough job. Look the part. Sarah Palin, otherwise dumb as a sack of door knobs, at least looked the part.

    Palin was a governor, not a particularly good one, but she had executive experience. The GOP is attacking Rodham's one resume line that shows her in charge of something -- The State Department.

    If a woman is so ashamed of being a woman that she dresses like a man, what other psychological problems does she have? Will she cave like Angela Merkel and let the USA be flooded with refugees or send them back like Trump and his well-groomed well-dressed family?

    I agree with those who have had enough of family dynasties like the Clintons (Bill was OK but no more Clintons) and the Bushes (Dubya: worst president in US history). Unfortunately, Joe Biden steps out and so we are stuck with undesirable front-runners for both the Democrat and Republican tickets.

    Just once I'd like to go into the voting booth and have to choose between two good candidates or several good candidates if we had strong third parties. Instead, every Election Day I have to chose between a drooling idiot and a evil villain or a psychopath and a sociopath. And I am not saying who is which.

    Palin quit Alaska before she would have had to be questioned in hearings about her ethics violations. Sarah Palin would have walked out of the Benghazi hearings after the first 'gotcha' question. Sarah Palin is not even close to being as intelligent and strategic as Hillary Clinton.

    I caught a lot of it, at one point, Trey was sweating like a palin in heat, his nostrils flaring, while Hillary looked composed, calm and cool as a cuke. The parts i loved were when Hillary let out a laugh when asked if she was alone the whole night, a question which bothered another female inquisitor. Hillary smoothed it over as a moment of levity several hours into the inquisition. What I loved most was she was unshakable and knew the answers by heart, it's the eight plus time they've asked her.
    She's on Rachel Maddow tonight, can't wait to watch. Poor Trump fell in the polls, which he pays no attention at all to anyway. Life is good!!!!!!
