Watch Kevin McCarthy Dance on the Head of a Pin

October 03, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay so now Kevin McCarthy is playing take-backs on the gaffe he made about the Benghazi hearings being a Get-Hillary plan.

I could almost believe that, except …

The NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) immediately tweeted, “You are now a Benghazi watchdog. Let’s go after Obama and Hillary Clinton. Help us fight them now,” accompanied by a Benghazi picture.

It was later taken down after McCarthy tried to spin it.

See, that’s the problem with juggling pitchforks on your witch hunt – everybody knows when you screw up.

It seems to me that in the Speaker’s race, McCarthy started slow and then tapered off.

  1. Hillary Clinton got a lot of flak for saying there was “a vast right-wing conspiracy.” Have we seen any evidence that she was wrong?

    And can we work harder on that vast left-wing conspiracy? Because I don’t think it’s getting much done.

    Rhea, not being more specific at the time may have done her some damage that continues today. However, had she been more specific and actually named the John Birch Society with the billionaires aligned with them, it is not beyond the bounds of probability that President Bill Clinton might have been assassinated. As it was, the Congressional hypocrites with the aid of Ken Starr made a significant attempt of character assassination.

    Speaking of the JBS, Kevin McCarthy is from the wingnut basket of CA. Boy has a serious speech impediment. His foot arrives in his mouth, before any signal is sent from his cranium. But, in front of a microphone it’s understandable that he cannot wait forever. Maybe the ‘Cons will wire him up the way they did Dubya.

    This is what happens when people [and I use the term loosely] begin demonizing intelligence. They get dumber because they see no reason to strive to be smarter.

    And then this happens.

  4. The problem for the Rethugs is that they really don’t have anybody better–who can possibly get elected Speaker.

    If the “sane” Rethugs had their way, Nancy Pelosi would get her old office back. But, that will never happen.

    Mayhaps A-Butt is going to get back monies he lost to DC as Texas Ag and then pocket it for himself. That would be a likely scenario.

    Sorry,my post was meant for A-Butts sorry ass.

    So the NRCC is claiming Benghazi!! was a cover up. If the Repubs in Congress haven’t managed to uncover the cover up in 8 and counting investigations, they really are stoopid. And the Dems are exceptionally good at covering up whatever. Amazing how the previous 8 committees all said the administration was not responsible for the Benghazi!! attack, there never was a stand down order, and they were not running guns out of the CIA outpost. But somehow, President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton are covering something! anything! up. Are they hoping that there’s an email from Hillary that sets up the attack and Obama is asking her when?

    That’s another thing that has me puzzled. Why was Howdy Gowdy so insistent that all of Hillary’s emails from January, 2009 be turned over to the special committee? The Benghazi!! attack didn’t happen until September 11, 2012 but he wanted emails from 3 1/2 years prior to find out exactly what? Kevin McCarthy accidentally told the truth about all these committees and the Democrats really need to hold these idiots’ feet to the fire.

  8. They just won’t get it. They’re still running against President Obama — Hillary is just a sidelight for them. Sure, they hate her, but they just can’t let go of their all-consuming hate for that black guy. Two Crows is right — they see no reason to try to be smarter. Every time they scream Benghazi! they admit to their stupidity. Yeah, sure, let’s investigate further — ain’t got nothin’ better to do.

  9. Sigh. None of these oyks (Brit for idiot) have figured out that by their own plotting they are not only forced to juggle with pitchforks but functioning chain saws as well! One slip and its lights out!

    Now, I say lets think positively. The Speakership is an open position. One need not be a member of the House to be Speaker. Who out there would be better than anything the Rethugs in the House have to offer? I nominate JJ’s momma! She sounds like she could whip that herd of cats into shape!

    The GOP has evolved from the Party Of Lincoln, to the Party of the Lincoln Town Car, to the party of the leaking clown car.

  11. RepubAnon says:

    For Republicans, it’s all about generating fear and anger in the electorate. Angry and fearful people don’t think, they react – and are largely immune to fact-based arguments.

    Notice how Governor Brownback of Kansas was re-elected – and Donald Trump’s popularity? A few minutes of rational thought by voters would have ensured that these two were unelectable. So far, I’m no seeing any evidence of rational thought’s poll numbers rising.

    That’s the real worry.

  12. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    RepubAnon, the good news is what the pollsters are saying about their own poll numbers. Their models are set up for landlines, an antiquated concept, at best. The next alternative are the on-line polls for which the pollsters have not determined a model for accuracy. Then, there are the cable TV versions. Oh yeah, listen to C-SPAN for 5 minutes and hear the skew.

    As for Broke-back in Kansas or Wanker in Wisconsin, those are Koch anomalies. Keep shedding the light on ALEC, Koch and Citizen’s United and the people who do vote will turn this mess around.

    The one time they tell the truth, they try to take it back.

    The head of a pin is where one would logically look to find a pinhead.

    At least he has yet to say his words about HRC were taken out of context.

  16. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    I would like to say that Kevin McCarthy is the worst that the west has to offer. But I would be negligent. In California alone, there’s Darrell Issa and failed Senate candidate Gnarly Purina, to name a few.

    Then in Utah, there’s the current name to possibly be House Speaker in lieu of Kevin. Yes, that punter. Right out of Bang ’em Young University, once a member of the Tribe in CA, now Mormon, Jason Chaffetz. His religious resume reads like Piyush Jindal, failed Governor of LA.

    When I think of Jason, I don’t think of football. Yet, “punter” sure seems to describe the little moocher.

    Back to Kevin dancing on the head of a pin. All I can say is: let him sit on it.

  17. e platypus onion says:

    Chaffetz is what a dog does when it vomits food and then picks out morsels to re-scarf down.

  18. Repugs are so good at making themsleves look ridiculous.
    Mc Carthy’s mouth, Chaffetz’ charts….what a god-awful place they’ve turned the House of Representatives into. they’ve turned the legislative branch of our government into a global joke.

  19. Hollyanna says:

    Thinking of McCarthy and Chaffetz as leadership material serves to remind us that cream is not the only thing that rises to the top…

  20. Marcia in CO says:

    PKM and epo … Chaffetz has thrown his hat into the ring to try and take Boehner’s place!! He thinks he is better then McCarthy … LOL LOL LOL

  21. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Marcia in CO, if being a product of Bang ’em Young and a punter isn’t enough to disqualify Chaffetz, he needs to have his lying graphic tied around his neck like an albatross.

    The video of Chaffetz shutting off his own microphone is classic. He looked dumber than the robber returning to the bank with a stack of purple dyed bills to make a deposit.

    But, that’s a Republicon. Stone cold busted and with the unmitigated gall to run with the “who me?” gambit.

    E platypus best snark of the day, maybe the week.

    I second the nomination for JJ’s momma. We’ll all send snacks to keep up her energy.
