No, this is not satire. Apparently, the GOP derangement over Benghazi is reaching new levels of insanity, because like rabid dogs, they're turning on each other. This past week, everyone's favorite Texas dumbass Louis "Gomer" Gohmert appeared on the radio show of prominent neo-con and notorious conspiracy theory Frank Gaffney, where they griped about John McCain's not-so-excellent Syrian road trip (which Gaffney described as "hobnobbing with jihadists"). Then the matter turned to Benghazi and Gohmert had a new theory on who is to blame:
GOHMERT: Yeah and then we know if it had not been for Sen. McCain and President Obama being for what we knew at the time included al-Qaeda in the rebel forces then we would still have a U.S. ambassador and three others alive today because Benghazi would not have happened. But by giving power to the rebel forces that included al Qaeda that brought that whole mess about and helped create problems in Tunisia and Algeria. So I’m not sure what to think about his going to Syria. If history is any lesson the people he met with he wants us to help should be very careful about what Sen. McCain’s support could mean for them.Yes, apparently because McCain supported the ouster of Qaddafi, he bears responsibility as well as Obama for the Benghazi attack. Funny, I never thought I'd see Republicans wishing we didn't take out a Mideastern dictator.
Of course, the sweet irony of this is obvious:
In fact, McCain was one of the GOP's leading attack dogs on the Obama administration over its handling of the Benghazi attacks. Now that he is being accused by some in his own Party of being responsible for the attacks themselves is an new and interesting — if not completely unsurprising — twist in the otherwise bizarre episode that has been “Benghazi-Gate.”Gotta love that circular firing squad. How long until Gomer accuses Darrell Issa of being complicit in the Obama administration's cover-up because he can't find the smoking gun? (Or maybe Steve Stockman will steal that honor, because only one of them can hold the title of Biggest Dumbass in Texas.)
