The Second Ass Clown of the Month Award for November, 2014

I'm of two minds about the propriety of designating an Ass Clown of the Month just one day after Thanksgiving. On the one hand, having so many ass clowns working so diligently to screw up the country and the world doesn't seem like something for which we should be thankful. But on the other hand, it makes life a lot easier for those of us who satirize the activities of those fools and buffoons.

And speaking of fools and buffoons, let us move on without delay to announce our second Ass Clown of the Month for November, 2014 ....

Senator Lindsay Graham
(Republican, South Carolina) 

On September 11, 2012, four Americans including the US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, were murdered in an attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Almost from the moment the fires died down, the tragic events of that day became a huge political weapon for Congressional Republicans as they accused President Obama of deliberately lying about the details of the attack, and of deliberately allowing the murder of American citizens. In spite of the fact that repeated investigations - including one just completed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence* - have uncovered absolutely no evidence to support the scurrilous accusations of deliberate and politically-motivated official malfeasance, Senator Graham has described the latest investigatory report as being "full of crap," and said it's "garbage" that the report does not find that any members of the Obama administration lied to cover up what happened in Benghazi. Graham said he is going to "do a hard review of" the findings of the report ... which would be, by my counting, the ninth investigation in search of politically useful facts that do not exist.

If you're interested enough, you can read the entire new report here and draw your own conclusions.

For his relentless political scab-picking and complete refusal to face the facts as established by a long series of studies, reviews, and investigations of the Benghazi tragedy, Senator Lindsey Graham is designated our Second Ass Clown of the Month for November, 2014.

And I'm betting he'll still be howling about the same topic a year from today.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.


* Chaired by a Republican, no less - Representative Mike Rogers.

He just doesn't believe in letting it rest, doesn't he? Playing it up for the bleachers?

Gets you in front of the camera, I guess.

Do you have a crayon with which I can draw my conclusions? I think that might be the only medium Mr. Graham understands. He certainly isn't learning anything from *adult* media!

I think the Congressman would nt recognize an apt conclusion if he stumbled over it.

I was stunned when I heard his remarks about the committee report. It's hard to believe he is US senator, but I guess the qualifications are minimal, just lots and lots of cash. He is an all too worthy Ass Clown of the month.

Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!
