Yesterday, the Congressional Republicans of the Benghazi committee conducted what could only be described as a witch hunt that was so specious and partisan that it would even have made Sen. Joe McCarthy blush. For eleven solid hours, Hillary Clinton was subjected to what could only be described as a police interrogation by a crew of GOP thugs. All that was missing was the darkened room and a bright light shining in her face. Needless to say, if their goal was to discredit Hillary to lower her numbers in the polls, they were wasting their time, taxpayers' money and America's collective patience.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton wasn't discredited by the GOP, she was politically martyred by Republican slimeballs! As everyone knows, martyrs usually become heroes. Hillary stoically withstood their onslaught and looked positively heroic. Could it be that the political party that hired a consultant to concoct the deceptive phrase “job creator” as a description for corporations and billionaires has an underlying strategy behind the Benghazi hearings? Could it be that they secretly wanted to lionize Hillary by putting her through the hearing? Why??
My theory is that Bernie Sanders is the true nightmare of the corporations and billionaires that finance GOP campaigns. If the hearings actually help Hillary win the primaries, corporations and billionaires can breathe easy, they've gotten Bernie out of their hair. At that point, they have a win/win situation on their hands. If Hillary Clinton wins the general elections, they win, if a Republican wins, they win more!
If I were Bernie Sanders, I would make a masterful move that would be the equivalent of his breakout “The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails” shout to Hillary, which made him look like he was classy enough to fight the GOP in her defense. I would collar the Committee chairman Trey Gowdy and his GOP pals from my Senatorial bully pulpit and ask the same question that Joseph N. Welch asked Sen. Joe McCarthy during the Army-McCarthy hearings: “ Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” That would definitely put Bernie on the Presidential path!
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
