    I still don't get where the republicans are going on this - and I kinda consider myself a halfway intelligent guy.  

    But seriously, how can this possibly turnout to be a scandal?

    They are just looking crazy to me the way they keep going back to these stupid talking points and beating up on Rice for it- when they had the very same information.

    I am ...boggled.

    A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people ... restore their government to it's true principles.

      It just keeps the 'seeds of doubt' thing going.  Like the birther issue.  They made it up, but they kept 'seeds of doubt' alive.  It shaped their entire message strategy (and ultimately failed miserably).  

      There isn't a scandal--but they want to keep some 'incompetence' meme alive.  That will maintain support among their followers.  Even when the Benghazi thing is done, it won't REALLY be done.  Like Fast 'n' Furious.  or Acorn.  or anything else like that.

      I think it helps them because it retains some people on the center-right who are somewhat sympathetic to their 'cause'.

        They never wanted a conclusion to the birther issue because they knew there wasn't a Kenyan birth certificate.

        They never want a conclusion to Benghazi because they know there is no smoking gun for them.

        Both never-ending loops feed the insatiable paranoia of much of the right-wing.

      And not just a bone to worry and blather on about.  Bygod, McCain and his buddies are gonna filibuster any attempt to appoint Rice Sos, because she's worse than Watergate.  these are truly awful people
