Sunday Bloody NYT Sunday: Special Ross Douthat Hits A New Low Even For Him Edition

This week’s Times leads, like pretty much every other news source in America, with the release of American prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl, imprisoned by Afghan insurgents for five years. Rather than be happy that our sole POW got to return to American soil, the GOP took this as an opportunity to whine about Obama.

New York Times’ Detailed Investigation Ends Rancor Over Benghazi Forever

Over the weekend, the New York Times released its big investigative report on the September 11, 2012, attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi. The article by David Kirkpatrick suggested that several aspects of the rightwing narrative don’t hold water — particularly the claims that the “Innocence of Muslims” video had nothing to do with the attack, that the attack had been planned far in advance, and that it was an al Qaeda operation. The thorough report led critics of the Obama administration to say, “Ah, we see. Well, so much for that, then. So maybe it wasn’t Watergate plus Pearl Harbor times 9/11 after all.” Haha, we are simply “taking the urine” there! Of course the wingnut brigade took issue with the report, because everyone knows that no one in Libya had access to Egyptian TV reports about the video (or if they did, they simply shrugged off its mockery of the prophet Mohammed, because rioting over a video is just silly). And everyone knows that all radical Islamic groups are part of al Qaeda, just like all biting dogs are pit bulls — this is just science. And everyone knows that the attack was planned in advance, because we all saw Darrel Issa on Fox News saying it was.

Did Wonkette Out Wyoming Senator John Barrasso In 2008? Maybe, We Cannot Tell!

Word comes that Mike Rogers has outed another sad closet case, this time Wyoming’s junior senator, John Barrasso. So we did some journalism, by which we mean we typed “John Barrasso” into our Wonket search box to see if we had ever had any inkling if Senator Barrasso might have accidentally contracted the gheigh from sitting next to Larry Craig on the bus. And you know what? We think we might have! We cannot tell! Please to make some swooshy (swishy?) lines in front of your face as we travel back in time to the mist-swirled prehistory of 2008! “Larry Craig Is Senate Bottom”? This sounds promising!

Politicians Welcome Chance To Discuss This NSA Surveillance Monster They Hid In The Basement

Over the weekend, various security officials and congresscritters were forced to go on the morning yap shows or talk to the press about the secret data collection programs exposed by the Guardian over the weekend. Some of them took this opportunity to explain why they were glad, GLAD, that we are finally having a national conversation about the classified top secret eavesdropping and metadata collection programs that they hid from the American people. Others patiently warned us that this classified top secret eavesdropping and metadata collection program had definitely prevented terror but that they couldn’t tell us exactly HOW it prevented terror, because that is secret, silly! But it is definitely keeping us safe, although it also missed the Boston Marathon bombings, and the Times Square bombing attempt, and the Fort Hood shooting. And still others just stressed that the classified top secret eavesdropping program is somehow effective enough to prevent terrorism but not so effective as to actually compromise anyone’s privacy. Below, a rundown of the various machinations and meltdowns! Read more on Politicians Welcome Chance To Discuss This NSA Surveillance Monster They Hid In The Basement…

Heartbroken House GOP Just Wants Its Beloved Earmarks Back

Aw, the House GOP is feeling so lonely for its old boyfriend Earmarks that it is going around Congress quietly surveying friends to see how mad everyone would be if it got back together with Earmarks. Everything was better with Earmarks, wasn’t it, GOP Rep. Steven LaTourette? “You can’t get 218 votes (out of 242 Republican House members) and part of that has to be if you can’t give people anything (earmarks), you can’t take anything away from them,” he complained. That’s adorable, the Republican Party is so depressed without Earmarks in its life that it can barely show up for work anymore. So romantic! Time for Act Two, in which a comical plot to bring Earmarks back is carefully hatched… Read more on Heartbroken House GOP Just Wants Its Beloved Earmarks Back…

Ken Mehlman’s Official Gay Coming-Out Party Happening Now!

Rumors about former RNC chair Ken Mehlman’s Complete Gayness have been swirling around for years and years.  Mike Rogers outed him several years back, as part of his campaign to rid the political world of homosexuals who cynically use the rest of the gay community as bait in order to convince rubes, yahoos, bumpkins and other morons to set down the teevee clicker even if it means missing the last five minutes of The 700 Club, in order to go out and vote Republican, due to abject fear of gays.  Mehlman’s sins were particularly egregious, since we are after all talking about the guy who helped run the most anti-gay presidential campaign in history, which gave us Four More Years of the Crawford hick and his handlers, Karl and Dick.

Mike Rogers, Weary of Saying I Told You So, Moves On to the Profit Stage

Mike Rogers of Blogactive is having a very good Late Summer, indeed! Last week, he got to say, “I wrote about Larry Craig’s sex-loo fondness last October” to whomever would listen, and for once, everybody wanted to listen! This morning he got the ultimate full-release sought after in this town: a fawning butt-licking by the Washington Post. They even call him “the most feared man on The Hill,” an epithet which virtually guarantees Mr. Rogers will have to keep his legs crossed on the Metro for at least a month. Good on ya, Mike! But wouldn’t you like to have a souvenir of Toiletgate? Mike’s got that covered, too! Head over to the eBays to bid on his Larry Craig fun pack, a superexciting extravaganza which includes… um… some pieces of paper and a plastic pin shaped like a potato! Yay!
