    This has always been the Republican Party's biggest risk with this stuff: that they don't know when to quit. On Benghazi, when it became obvious that they didn't have a smoking gun, they got desperate and tried to invent one. On the IRS, their problem is that Democrats are as outraged as they are.

    A sane party would take a deep breath and decide to move on to other things. But the tea partiers have the scent of blood now, and it's driving them crazy. Thus the spectacle of Michele Bachmann suggesting today that it's time to start impeachment proceedings.

    The GOP's adults can't keep their lunatic fringe on a leash, which means it's only a matter of time until they make fools of themselves on all three of the pseudoscandals that are currently lighting up the airwaves. The Republicans have met the enemy, and it is them.

    Is there no limit to the depths of Republican dishonesty and depravity?

    Is there no limit to the number of racist fake profiles the Queen of the Right-Wing Phonies has. This cowardly card-carrying KKK member and phony unpopular troll is absolutely pathetic: he has to use fake profiles because he's too scared to stand behind his ugly face and ugly viewpoints.

    Just pure, uneducated, right-wing trash on the bottom of my shoe -- and serially stupid to boot. What a laughingstock haha.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-57584947/wh-benghazi-emails-have-different-quotes-than-earlier-reported/On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

    But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department.

    It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

    In other words, national Republicans are much like our conservanut trolls: fake, phony, cowards who are pathological liars that nobody takes seriously -- except as sideshow entertainment.

    Republican meltdown lies and failure on Benghazi are epic

    http://editors.talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2013/05/wow_this_is_pretty_epic.phpGenerally, once partisan, tendentious sources leak information that turns out to be wrong, nothing’s ever done about it. That’s for many reasons, some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad. But on CBS Evening News tonight, Major Garrett did something I don’t feel like I’ve seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast. He basically said straight out: Republicans told us these were the quotes, that wasn’t true.

    We all know who the socks are and they are unbelievably annoying, especially when they're overtly racist, which is probably why they do it. Very adult. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I think some of FIF's ideas are abhorrent (and hate it when he stoops to insulting by calling people boi or other feminine names), but at least he is who he is and is pretty straightforward about it.

    The socks and other hiders behind no pic, no (or misleading) information profiles among you, come on out. I am happy to have a policy discussion with a real person, even if it gets heated. But not with a hider, and at this point, you look like complete idiots. You are not serving your cause well.

    Oh, and stop ruining Rupaul for me.icon_evil.gificon_evil.gificon_evil.gificon_evil.gificon_evil.gif

    "hate it when he stoops to insulting by calling people boi or other feminine names"

    I suggest you reread the last 100 or so of TA's posts. I owe him at least the feminizing pronouns. However we (you and I) may disagree, at least you can keep the name calling, ad hominem attacks and hate under control .

    Anyone around here who wants to meet me and see that in fact the profile pic is me, I'll be at Cars and Coffee in Lennox tomorrow morning at around 8:30 until 10 or 10:30

    Oh, I completely believe that you are who you say you are.

    TBH I probably have more tolerance for name calling on my side of the aisle (well, what passes for my side of the aisle since I'm not really a "liberal"), and I do undertand the anger. This forum is and always has been fucked up.

    It does seem odd to me that while there appeared to be a great "clearing" a while back of the most combative, the socks and hiders continue to get away with it under a cloak of anonymity.

    What do RuPaul & wigs have to do with a political scandal??? When Right Wingers get caught red handed they go hysterical, throwing out every kind of irrelevant diversion. I'm sure they'll be mentioning my age for good measure in a moment, which is always a convincing argument they include.

    Now can we stay on topic, please? Have Republicans doctored emails to falsely implicate this Democratic Administration in a political scandal? Because if they have, they deserve to be prosecuted and removed from office. Just as they are clamoring for Democrats.

    they didnt release all the emails. These were handpicked to be released.

    Just as I predicted, my age gets mentioned. Not the facts of the matter, just a personal attack. I'm sure bringing up my age changed a lot of minds on this issue. icon_rolleyes.gif
