11. Dude, do you realize Benghazi was like two years ago!

The AP and the rest of the media turns a blind eye to recent revelations regarding what happen the night America stood by while 4 Americans were killed in service to their country!

Lanivan

Benghazi is the deliberate exploitation of four Americans, conceived in the back rooms of the GOP, designed to divert the public's attention from the fact that the GOP Congress currently holds the lowest approval ratings ever in the history of polls, and that they have been paid over $200/hour to do nothing but block, obstruct, repeal, and stall any proposals that would support or strengthen the middle class or the working poor.

Meanwhile, Dude! - about FOUR AMERICANS DIE FROM GUN DEATHS EVERY HOUR.

Wingmaster

Hey dude, what a coincidence, illegal activity with guns, only difference is our government is attacking the rights of good honest citizens here over gun violence and in over there it is covering it up because it does not help its political cause!

Wingmaster

Perhaps the secret cloud is about to be lifted....I would be throwing out all kinds of shiny objects out to Lan if I were you.

See below re: voter ID shiny object.

Lanivan

Oh - I'm not done. See below re: fracking. (so now you're labeling all the seriously defining issues of modern society "shiny objects"? Have you no shame?

Tri-cities realist

To quote Barry S. "No"

Lanivan

You are getting snowed by your peeps, Wing.

Fox News and Bret Baier’s faux-integrity: The face of terrible Benghazi journalism. How a straight-laced newsman who anchors Fox News' most august news show is really a lying fake-scandal-monger

Barry Soetoro

Thankfully we have Salon to tell us that.

Lanivan

If you're waiting to hear it from Fox News, better pull out another Smithwicks and get comfy.

Barry Soetoro

I'll have you know the only use I have for Fox News is blonde hair, short skirts and ample cleavage.

Lanivan

And, according to Vlad, glossy lips and legs.

Barry Soetoro

Hang on, I need to do some more research on that...

Lanivan

Now you're up to speed.

Ogling Pretty Fox Girls = Tacky.

Fox News as Research Source = Academically Justified.

Something to wear while doing your research....

Barry Soetoro

Nice! I ordered a shower curtain to match! Now if you could find me some reasonably priced Stagg... and not the Jr bottles either.

Lanivan

You're one interesting guy. I have to say I never met anybody who wore a shower curtain while researching Fox News.

Sorry about the Stagg.....the only thing I have stashed over here is a stolen bottle of Pappy Van Winkle,,,sshhh - keep this on the lowdown from "you know who"....

Tri-cities realist

And what is the approval rating of Harry Reid's democrat controlled Senate? How much was he paid to NOT produce a budget for 4 years?

Lanivan

Shiny objects, TCR.

Please research Harry Reid, the Democrat Senate, budgets, unprecedented number of Republican Senate filibusters, GOP unwillingness to compromise and govern, constant GOP addition to bills and budgets of amendments that would gut the ACA, Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid, shut down government, refusal to lift debt ceiling causing a global economic catastrophe, and acting out in any other manner as directed by puppetmasters, the Koch Bros.

Then please report research data and unbiased links to support.

windy

Harry Reid is a delusional old fart. What's in your Kool-Aid?

Lanivan

By your name - "Windy" - you'd better watch who you're calling an old fart.

And, by the way, have you attained the status in life of Senate Majority Leader?

windy

Have you?

Lanivan

I'm not disrespectfully calling anyone a delusional old fart.

windy

OK. How about that senile, good for nothing LYING OLD OLD OLD man. I give respect where respect is due.

Lanivan

Sure. That's lots better. The only problem is it describes so many people, both in Washington and in the comment section of the GHTribune (like Sandypants, for example). Oh dear! What a confluence of crap!! Just who could you mean exactly??

windy

WTF? Drink much?

Lanivan

Isn't it your bedtime?

windy

Isn't it time for you to get an education?

Lanivan

I have just sent you the latest edition of "Online Etiquette and Tips On How to Avoid Looking Like An Idiot". You should get it any day now, and not a moment too soon.

You're most welcome!

Barry Soetoro

Can I get a copy of that? Thanks in advance!
