Bang on the money if you ask me

The Republican Party whilst doing nothing for the nation have decided a fun way to do less than nothing and with complete disregard to any costs incurred.

On the kangaroo court

Republicans vying for a seat on the Benghazi kangaroo court, also known as the Select House Committee to Inflate a Tragedy Into a Scandal.
All because the frothing at the mouth brigade smell blood where there is none.

Of course the GOPs  persecution complex is also fed.

The day before, they voted to hold in contempt Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official whom they would love to blame for the administration’s crackdown on conservative groups, if only they could prove there was a crackdown, which they can’t, because there wasn’t.
As for Democrats joining in the Benghazi Circus
Democrats who are now debating whether to participate in the committee shouldn’t hesitate to skip it. Their presence would only lend legitimacy to a farce.
As for Republican disregard of others rights
Little nuisances like constitutional rights or basic facts can’t be allowed to stand in the way when House Republicans need to whip up their party’s fury.
Republicans have demonstrated yet again that when they cannot start preemptive wars, torture, give the wealth of the nation to the rich, persecute anyone not like them, they fall into their standard set of procedures:

1] If we cannot impeach a President we will just fuck up government.

2] Hold pointless proceedings to stir up the crazy.

3] If all else fails throw a wrench into the works and then go on Fox Noise to complain that the wrench has broken the works.

It is astounding that they look at science as a conspiracy.

It is funny [in a sick kind of way] how they regard equality for all as infringing upon their rights.

It is going to be an ugly couple of years.

House Switchboard 1-202-224-3121

How about each of us making two calls,  one telling Nancy to just say NO and one to our Democratic representative urging him/her to encourage the leadership to say HELL NO.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
