It was just over a month ago when Obama deputy campaign manager and lying liar Stephanie Cutter got the ball rolling, declaring that the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Libya was only an issue because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan insisted on politicizing it — a claim that seems even more outrageous in light of the “French kiss” of a third presidential debate.
Confronted yesterday with a question about Benghazi, Democratic Party Communications Director Brad Woodhouse replied by tweeting simply, “We won.” And yet the hearings continue, even though Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid yesterday smacked down the proposal of a Senate select committee. His reasoning? “The elections are over; it is time to put aside the partisan politicization of national security.”
This time it’s Josh Marshall’s turn to ask: Why won’t you wingnuts on the right just let it go? (Marshall is publisher of Talking Points Memo, which provides special snowflake Soledad O’Brien with her crib notes.)
Finding out the truth behind Benghazi isn’t going to change the election results, so why cling bitterly to that “tragedy”? Marshall asked, and conservatives answered.
