HILLARY & BEYONCE: IN SEARCH OF SCANDAL
Love her or hate her (and I am unabashedly in the love camp) Hillary Clinton was riveting in her Congressional testimony on Libya. GOPers have worked mightily to create a full-fledged ‘scandal’ from the tragic deaths of four Americans in Libya.
But Clinton fought back this week by a one-two punch of straightforwardly and also emotionally taking ‘responsibility’ for the deaths, while at the same time fiercely batting back the notion that somehow there was a sinister ‘cover-up’ involved in the initial conflicting accounts and statements regarding what exactly triggered the Libya attack.
GOP Senator Ron Johnson berated Clinton for not having read cables that investigation suggests may never have reached her desk. But John Kerry later pointed out in his own hearings that Johnson himself never bothered to attend the most thorough hours-long debriefing on the attacks.
No doubt there are serious security questions still to be answered about the Libya attacks, hopefully in an ongoing investigation unclouded by charges of ‘scandal.’ Meanwhile, downhearted GOPers in search of Obama’s ‘Watergate’ may now make a wildcard reach.

‘Oh say can we see’– any real scandals on the horizon?
A PS to this Post– Our commentator Ol’ Bill has this to add: “Hillary & Beyonce” should be THE metaphor for four years of faked policy hysteria and lip synced scandal propaganda marking the demise of what used to be a Grand Old Party. Political Celebrities In Disgrace on steroids.” Ol’Bill
