Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Benghazi Vs. Mothra... Er... The IRS

Benghazi is a witch hunt, in the worst sense of the word.  There is no scandal.  There is no cover-up.  There is, perhaps, some cover-you-ass on the parts of people at State, CIA and Defense in terms of turf wars and responsibility after the fact, but there is no scandal about Benghazi, except that the GOP has routinely cut security funding at State and now are trying to hang the President Hillary Clinton with it.

Cincinnati is also not a scandal.  But it smells like a scandal.  Josh Marshall points out that Obama is pissed about the Benghazi nontroversy, but is guarded about Cincinnati.  That's because he's in the reality-based community, not the wingnutosphere.
