benghazi

We’re not sure how we feel about the fact that Fox News had not one, but two, segments yesterday in which their hosts excoriated some of the derpier parts of the right wing. On the one hand, hahahahaha. On the other hand, agreeing with Fox News about things makes us feel icky. Not icky enough […]

Jon Stewart was pretty impressed with how well the capture of Benghazi attacker Ahmed Abu Khattala went. He couldn’t find a single thing wrong with the operation — “which is probably why I don’t work at Fox.” Ah, but America’s greatest news network found flaws — after all, it would have been easy for a […]

Now that President O’Bungler has finally had Benghazi mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala arrested in an obvious bid to distract everyone from the blossoming scandal of daughter Malia landing a patronage job as a PA on a Halle Berry TV show, we can finally put to rest the big mystery of what exactly motivated a bunch […]

So you might think that this would be something that wingnuts would be happy about: U.S. Special Forces have captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the suspected ringleaders of the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi. He was captured in a raid in Libya and will be brought to the United States for […]

Be careful, kids, another rightwing writer has attempted satire. The writer is Mychal Massie, WND’s most prominent black person who can’t stand what Obama has done to America, and his satirical notion is this: we should elect a white Christian conservative who governs as badly as Barack Obama, so that no one will ever be […]

This nugget of 2016 Campaign Intelligence from Patrick Caldwell at Mother Jones tells us that the race is getting serious: The Republicans have deployed their first Furry against the still-not-official campaign of Hillary Clinton. Named “HRC Squirrel,” the mascot tells you at a glance everything you need to know about the threat Hillz poses to […]

You guys, Fox News thinks that President Roosevelt screwed the pooch again. After yesterday’s amphibious landings in Normandy, the network grudgingly agreed that Allied troops had established a beachhead in France, but they were really not happy with how Our Boys pulled it off, insisting that the casualties were unacceptably high, speculating that “Two-Wheeler Delano” […]

Fox News Sunday was trundling along in a pretty predictable discussion of U.S. American President Barack Obama’s pretty predictable West Point speech, with Laura Ingraham saying that Obama’s statement that America is strong “doesn’t even pass the straight-face test,” because duh, Barack Obama is president, and Bob Woodward saying that there really wasn’t any need […]

Allen West knows the truth about Benghazi, because he was on an airplane and a guy told him he knew a guy who was there, and that the CIA had been told to stand down, and also people are being threatened, and there was a drawing of schematics, impeach Obama QED. Today as I returned […]

Rancid beef jerky stick Darrell Issa has allegedly been in a snit over the new House Select Committee to investigate BENGHAAAAZI!!!11!!! because it bigfoots the investigations he has been chairing as head of the House Oversight Committee. Not that he doesn’t want to get to the bottom of the worst dereliction of duty since the […]

American torture hero and semiemployed former congressjerk Allen West is very, very concerned about this “Tammy Duckworth” person having agreed to be on the Big BenghaziPalooza Special Committee, because how can Americans be sure she actually loves America, and is not some kind of legless traitor like Max Cleland?

OK, well now we’re actually kind of interested in maybe watching the Big BenghaziPalooza Screamathon that the House Republicans are planning for sometime, dog knows when; no schedule’s been decided yet. Turns out that, despite some calls for Democrats to boycott the kangaroo steeplechase altogether, Nancy Pelosi has gone and appointed 5 Democrats to the […]

This weekend a scaly, horrifying, rage-addled lizard rose from the depths of its subterranean lair and slithered onto screens all over the country, where it opened its jaw and shrieked high-pitched noises at terrified Americans as it stomped its way across the land, leaving destruction in its wake. Yep, Dick Cheney was on Fox News […]

One specter that has always hovered over a Hillary Clinton campaign for president in 2016 is the possibility – the certainty – that all the old spirits of the 1990s will be conjured up and released into the world to wreak havoc and slime anyone in their way in the political equivalent of shutting down the containment […]

Everybody knows that the denizens of Fox News dwell in a fetid fact-free swamp, a veritable no-holds-barred cage match to see who can lie in the most spectacular way, so it isn’t really surprising that Karl Rove oozed his way out of their primordial muck and slimed over to a conference in Los Angeles to […]
