“Bowe Bergdahl!!!” is the new “Benghazi!!!”
Congressional Republicans don't need to worry about their trumped-up “Benghazi!!!” scandal losing traction (if it ever had any) with the public. They've got a brand new dead horse to beat on until November.
Up until a few days ago, the most tragic tragedy of all time, the most scandalous scandal EVER, was the death of Chris Stevens and three other unknown diplomats — not one GOP useful idiot has ever named them — in Benghazi.
But that's yesterday's news. Out with the old fake trumped-up scandal and in with the new. As you know, President Obama arranged the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl by his Taliban captors. He was the only American POW in Afghanistan. And conservatives are having a mass pantytwist over this gross miscarriage of justice.
Silly me, I would have thought the release of an American Prisoner of War was a Good Thing. Apparently not. Republican chickenhawks (sorry about the redundancy) are in Outrage Mode, and Congress is demanding hearings to investigate this
What a terrible president Barack Obama has been. Eight million previously uninsured Americans now have health insurance for the first time in their lives, the Federal Clean Air Act is going to start being actually enforced for the first time, and an American POW has been freed.
It's time for Republicans to start investigating. Digging. Digging deeper. What else are they good for?
