Big Benghazi bang

    With Obamacare fading as an issue on which to bet the farm, the Republicans have gone to plan B, Benghazi.  

    This, in spite of the fact that two congressional committees, one controlled by the G.O.P., have found the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission to be a tragedy in which both the infamous anti-Islamic video and al Qaeda-related groups were responsible.  

    Facts aside, the Republicans can whip up the extremist base with an “issue” that feeds the hatred of Obama and Hillary Clinton at the same time.  A quantum leap to craziness.
