Speaker of the House John Boehner speaking at the 2012 CPAC in Washington, D.C.
House Speaker John Boehner's attempts to keep all his clowns in the clown car are getting a bit Dadaesque:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday unveiled a website detailing the GOP's Benghazi probe amid mounting pressure from conservatives that he's not doing enough.
Yes, that is what the Republicans need to further their "investigation" of literally the one and only one of the many attacks on an American diplomatic compound in the last 20 years that any of them can name or give two shits about. A promotional website. Good to see Boehner is bringing the same A-game to Republican foreign affairs oversight that perpetual manchild Reince Priebus is using to recruit new teams of elite haxors to team GOP.
Boehner's office said the website offers access to “hundreds of pages of documents and transcripts the White House doesn’t want you to read.”
Mostly stuff written by Darrell Issa, some of it in the original crayon, but you have Boehner's word that Darrell Issa is working to leak actual papers relating to national security just as fast as his office gets them.

There's not much effort made to pretend the site is in any particular national interest; it appears to exist solely so that John Boehner can say that it does, because John Boehner has to acknowledge the latest faux-issue to have driven half of his party and all of Fox News stark raving batty or half his party and all of Fox News will not let him drive the little clown car anymore. Which, for some reason unfathomable by we mortals who exist outside his circus of the damned, he still wants to do.
