John McCain and his prissy goon squad are going after Susan Rice as though she had been at Benghazi herself aiming a rocket launcher at the US consulate. McCain is determined to create the spectacle of an old Republican white guy relentlessly attacking a professional African-American woman. He’s putting an exclamation point on all the mistakes the GOP made this last election. Nobody seems to knowwhat exactly is going on in John McCain’s head
... and that certainly includes John McCain.
McCain seems to have some sort of weird vendetta against Susan Rice. What’s the matter, Grandpa? Did she park in front of your house? Is McCain obsessed with Susan Rice? Hello! If they were both just private citizens, Susan Rice could get a restraining order on him.
McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte were given a special one-hour meeting with UN Ambassador Rice and the acting director of the CIA. Those three have no special status as chairs of any committee investigating Benghazi. They’re just three random Senators with bugs up their asses. As far as I can tell, the only reason those three got a special meeting with Rice and the CIA director was that they’re the members of the “I Hate Susan Rice Club.” I think they meet in a tree-house somewhere. McCain emerged the meeting
saying he was “significantly troubled.” You’re troubled alright, John... but not in the way you meant.
I think the White House gave them the meeting on the theory that even John McCain can only act crazy so long. That theory was wrong. The White House responded to McCain. But before they did, I’m sure the conversation went something like “OK, he’s clearly lost his mind. How do we handle this?” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said
“The focus on – some might say obsession on – comments made on Sunday shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced.” That’s a nice way of saying “Grandpa needs a nap.”
