  • Scraping the bottom of the deflection barrel

    Not Fox, Breitbart or Drudge

    Looks like Benghazi is back (still) in the news a year after some predicted on this board that it would be dead by Thanksgiving, of last year.

    AP article so I won't quote it here.

    That's a lot of money for a phony scandal.

    By the way -- who was stupid enough to fall for the White House's asinine explanation and subsequent labeling of the attack as a "phony scandal"? Well, besides the media, of course.

    I shoot with my mind.

    I kill with my heart.”

        Maybe you'll have better luck with him. I don't think he's talking to me.

          Actually I think I predicted something more like 90 seconds after the election was called.

          I later admitted I was wrong because I didn't take into account Hillary 2016. That was stupid of me.

            Looks like an admission that the voters on the left just vote for vapor and promises, feelgoodism.

            You in there?

              Oh, you mean Hillary "What does it matter that four Americans were left to die?" Clinton?

                Using quotes is bad form since it implies she said that. Go with hyphens.

                What-does-it-matter-if-four-Americans-were-left-to-die works better. You get your talking point across without looking like an asshole.

                  They should have called her at 3 am.

                    Not a quote. A nickname.

                    Odd -- you got your butthurt across, and STILL look like an asshole.

                      You should probably attempt, at some point, to post substance.

                      Oh shit... never mind...

                        I do. Have you considered that you may be too thick to recognize it?

                          That may be something you constructed in your mind.
                          You might explore that theory.

                            That would be 10 AM in Benghazi. Per CNN:
                            10 a.m.: The bodies of Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods are put on the last plane out of Benghazi.

                            Not that that matters, or so I'm told.

                              “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 to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

                              Looks like my nickname for her was fairly accurate.
