Wow. I've been tooling around the rightosphere, and JQ has, in the last week or so, developed the really annoying habit of checking Fox News to see what they're saying over there.

Holy smokes, it is all teh Benghazi, all the time.

Apparently Obama not only refused to give them any protection, but also told the forces that were available to stand down...and may have personally been present and assisting al Qaeda on the ground by firing RPGs at our embassy...

Actually, the non-crazy parts do seem to raise legitimate questions about the attack. When we're engaged in a life-and-death struggle for the soul of the country, however, I'm not going to push to hard for the administration to immediately cough up every scrap of info. I'm content to wait until the investigative process runs its course and, so far as I can see, the only reason to push this story to the front and demand that we all come to a conclusion about it NOW is to try to hurt Obama politically. But our friends across the aisle are particularly bad at disentangling their actual beliefs from their political talking points, and they seem to even be convincing themselves that this is WORSE THAN WATERGATE...though the good news is that this presupposes that they are finally willing to admit that Watergate was bad...

Hey, that's progress, guys!
