2. Benghazi Hearing Backfires.
Ben-God-these-men-are-annoying hearing! (Alright, that was a stretch even for us). Whatever you wanna call it, there’s no denying that the Benghazi hearing this past week was a sweeping success for White House hopeful Hillary Clinton. She suffered relatively silently through 11 hours (11 hours!!!) of continual questioning, disrespect, and utter confusion on behalf of her adversaries who have been determined to pin the Benghazi Attacks of 2012 on her shoulders. This hearing, of course, reopened some fresh wounds from the Great Cecile Richards Inquisition from earlier this year. The two events were eerily similar: brilliant, powerful lady as target of unnecessary, partisan hearing? Check. Panel made up almost exclusively of older, white men? Check. Incessant interruption and disrespect lobbed at powerful lady? Check. But what this hearing lacked in graphs, it made up in passionate speeches defending Clinton. Overall, we’re satisfied.
