By amazing, amazing coincidence, the Obama administration has announced the capture of one of the Benghazi masterminds at exactly the right moment to distract attention from Iraq, the IRS scandal, our failed borders, a contracting economy, and an overall realization that Captain Barry is deliberately aiming the ship of state at icebergs.
But is Abu Khatallah really a terrorist mastermind? He claimed he wasn't when he was interviewed outside a hotel, casually sipping a drink, two years ago by Time magazine. Rather, it seems likely that his capture (said to have been effected by placing a frosty Piña Colada under a carefully balanced box) is a brazen "Look! A squirrel!" distraction intended to take some heat off the president.
And here's a suggestion, Mr. Obama - once we've determined exactly what Abu Khatallah was doing on that fateful night, why don't you finally tell the American people what you were doing?
SECRETARY OF STAID
And speaking of people who totally effed up their responsibilities in Benghazi and then lied their asses off, Hillary Clinton is currently appearing at bookstores, news outlets, and dry cleaners across the country while pushing her book "Hard Choices." Which is, coincidentally, the same state her husband was in when he made most of his choices.
By all accounts, the book is a ponderous doorstop of meaninglessness - which is hardly surprising since even news junkies such as ourselves are hard pressed to come up with a single hard (let alone successful) choice that Hillary made as Secretary of State.
So far, the book isn't selling terribly well despite a huge first printing - meaning that an entire forest of paper-producing trees was brutally murdered for no good reason at all. But then again, at this point what difference does it make?
