just say "BENGHAZI"!!!
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided that they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and....prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."
Forget the fact that sixty people were killed in assaults upon American embassies during the years in which the halfwit from Crawford, Texas was running the government. Forget the fact that one month and six days before September 11, 2001 he was warned in his daily briefing that Osama bin Laden was planning on striking in the United States very soon - and that the First Fool did absolutely nothing to try and prevent it. Forget all of that. Reality is a luxury that a nation filled to the rafters with distracted robots can ill afford.
Oh, and while we're at it, let's all forget the nasty little reality that in the months leading up to September 11, 2012, the Republicans in congress slashed funding on embassy security worldwide. Don't even bring it up, okay?
Just take a look at the damage the GOP is doing to your country. I've said it here too many times to count but I need to repeat myself: Forgive me for sounding like a broken record but that isn't a political party; that's an organized criminal enterprise. Sooner or later the pathetic sheep in this doomed country that try to pass themselves off as an "informed electorate" are going to wake up to that fact. When that happens, I'm afraid that it'll be too late.
Listen to them pretty chimes of doom, baby!
FOR THE RECORD: I'm not beside myself with joy over the idea that - barring scandal or catastrophe - Hillary Clinton will almost certainly be the next president of the United States. Her progressive credentials are less than adequate as far as I'm concerned. I realize that we're centuries overdue for a "Madame President" but the prospect of Ms. Clinton in the Oval Office until the year 2025 is enough to send me tailspinning into a blue funk that will not be easy to recover from. There are a few damned good reasons why I am no longer a Democrat and she is one of those reasons. My only consolation is that the alternatives to Hillary are too vile to even make an attempt at contemplation. I'll learn to live with her I guess. She might even surprise me. Who knows?
Of this you can be sure: If something were to happen to Hillary tomorrow; were she to bow out of the race or, God forbid, die - this "controversy" (if that's what you insist upon calling it) would disappear overnight. This is all about politics - nothing more. Can't you smell the elephant shit?
So sit back, grab a brewski, and enjoy what promises to be the political train-wreck of the year. I'm gonna be loving every minute of this.
A Moveable Feast
by Ernest Hemingway
"There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it. But this is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy."
This is the closest Hemingway ever came to writing an autobiography. It covers the years he spent in Paris, 1920 to 1926. It was published in 1964, three years after his death from a self-inflicted shotgun blast. At the time his widow, Mary, was unfairly criticized for putting it out. Although not his best book (by far) it adds to our understanding of him, I think.
