The Left Cheek Ass Clown for October, 2015

Yes, Dear Readers, it's time to announce our selection for the

Left Cheek Ass Clown for October, 2015

As you know if you've been reading this blog for long, three things I value are courtesy, common sense, and fair play. When those things are ignored by those who should know better, you get the abysmal state of politics that has made our great nation a laughingstock around the world. With this in mind, the winner of the Left Cheek Ass Clown Award becomes pretty obvious ...

And the award goes to

Just to make things perfectly clear, I am not a fan of Hillary Clinton and do not believe she is qualified to be President. However, the blatantly partisan use of this committee as a tool to undermine Ms Clinton's campaign ... which even Republicans admit is the truth ... is a shameless misuse of government time and resources that could be put to better use solving the multitude of problems the nation is facing. Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy's actions are an embarrassment and a blot on the honor and dignity of the House of Representatives and America's government in general.

Seven previous investigations into the Benghazi tragedy in which four Americans were killed have found ... nothing. The 9/11 Commission, set up to investigate the murder of 3,000 Americans, wrapped up its work and published a lengthy and detailed report in less than two years. The Long Commission, which investigated the murder of 299 American and French troops in a bombing in Beirut, took just under two months to complete its work and publish a detailed report. The Benghazi committee has been working for more than two years, at a cost of tens of millions of dollars, without finding a thing. But those earlier investigations were more focused on finding the truth and solving problems than on attacking an individual.

As an American, I'm ashamed of this travesty. We deserve better, and Representative Gowdy and his useless crew of slander-focused henchmen should be hanging their heads in shame.

Have a good day. Come back tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday.

More thoughts then.

Okay; but I favored the 'Certificate of Virginity' people.

Damn good choice Bilbo!
With all this money spent, we could get a few new gun laws, feed children, help returning soliders, pay for roads that are deteriorating and on and on. This is pitiful. (and I too am not her biggest fan)

Time could be better spent.

Fair play and politics are mutually exclusive.

How about you nominate Hillary? She is the slickest politician I know of next to her husband.

The hearings are a futile exercise.
