Silly subby, GOP conspiracy theories never die, they just get picked up by the conservative derposphere.
 
2012-12-30 12:55:38 PM  
if you don't believe in the conspiracy theory, then you're either part of the plot, or you've been tricked by Obama's evil powerz.

Benghazi!

Drink!
 
2012-12-30 12:57:24 PM  
Benghazi is not a scandal.

It is however a drinking game on fark now.

Also a little something about Conspiracy theorists.

We usually dismiss conspiracy theorists as crazy people; but that doesn't tell the whole story.

I'm pretty convinced that reverse vampires had a lot to do with this.

You'd think even Maddow would know better by now that once a GOP conspiracy appears, it never goes away.

What advantage would the Obama administration have for letting Americans get killed? It was handled very poorly but that's not a conspiracy, just business as usual.
 
2012-12-30 01:41:08 PM  
...it's unclear whether the New York Post, the Daily Caller, hosts on Fox News's evening shows, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), the conservative website Pajamas Media, the Investors' Business Daily website, conservative blogger Lucianne Goldberg, and others are prepared to apologize...

Oh, I think it's crystal clear, actually.

This is the first I've heard of it. Is it really a conspiracy theory if nobody screams in your face about it to get you to "wake up"?

GAT_00: You'd think even Maddow would know better by now that once a GOP conspiracy appears, it never goes away.


the problem is that by feigning sickness hillary has avoided testifying in any meaningful way. sure she can go now but others have fallen on her sword for her. plus who cares at this point. any testimony she gives won't be noticed nor remembered if she decides to run in 2016.

now the whole benghazi thing is bullshiat but it sure was a convenient time for hillarty to whack her head .

"You know, every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world knows the phrase I am about to use. When you don't want to go to a meeting or conference or an event you have a 'diplomatic illness.' And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band."

I initially bought into the idea Madame Secretary was feigning her misfortunes in a bid to avoid testifying.

If she ends up in front of the mic, then who cares? We should get on with getting on (as long as a lobotomy wasn't involved...)

Hopefully they updated their saved Benghazi Fark thread list recently. It would be a shame if they lost all their hard work.

This topic did help turn some of the trolls from annoying farks to mentally unstable asses, so there's that.

You just admitted that you believed the Secretary of State was faking a serious illness, just to avoid talking to Congress, and then complain about how extreme politics has gotten?
 
2012-12-30 02:34:27 PM  
Benghazi was a screw-up.

Iraq was a scandal.

It would, if only Obama would release his real birth certificate. Also, "Whitey tape."

GOP conspiracy theories don't end. They just go derper.
 
2012-12-30 02:49:22 PM  
Let's see if the GOP even still wants to hold the hearing, now that they've succeeded in making Obama risk a Democratic Senate seat to replace Clinton. If they think they can rattle Clinton during the hearing in a way that damages a possible presidential run, yeah right.

A scandal is not a scandal until Orly Taitz and the ghost of Andrew Breitbart get involved.

Do you not know how congressional subpoenas work?  And if she is feigning illness, this is the most above and beyond feigning ever, given that she still is "feigning" by not being cleared to fly yet.

Yes, if she had testified three weeks sooner, it would have been clearly and decisively remembered four years from now. Makes total sense.

Just like it makes sense that the Obama admin linking the attack to Al Qaeda six weeks before the election would have sunk them, while making the same link four weeks before the election had no impact.

I think the entire right-wing derpo-sphere sounds tired.

It's like they're not even trying anymore. It's like they're not even testing their scandals with the focus groups first, to figure out how to market the right way. They're just tossing out half-assed scandals like they just don't care.

Well, when you treat everything that happens like a scandal for the ages, you risk a little bit of burnout,

He did, unless you believe the men, women, and children who burned to death in Waco were not "people."

And before you try to blame it all on Reno, remember that the law does not absolve the non-triggermen in a murder conspiracy.

Or maybe you think it was all just an unfortunate accident.

Lies! All lies! It's 10 hotdogs to the package rather than 12. 12 wouldn't be so bad--you only have to buy 2 packages of dogs and 3 of buns to make it come out even, rather than 4 packages of dogs and five of buns.

Nobody claims the Branch Davidians killing themselves was an accident.
