Your Right Wing Hack Moment of the Day

Tres formidable
Wingnuts • Views: 21,337

Possibly the most laughable right wing reaction to the Benghazi hearings comes from the Washington Post’s conservative figurehead, Jennifer Rubin, whose eyes popped right out of her head when Rand Paul took the microphone.

There was also this eye-popping moment in which Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) showed why he is so formidable.

[…]

And with that, he did great damage to the myth of Clinton’s competence.

She’s referring to Sen. Paul’s rant about how if he were President, he would have fired Hillary Clinton.

If I were the owner of the Washington Post, I would have fired Jennifer Rubin for deliberately misleading her readers during the presidential campaign. She does great damage to the reputation of the Washington Post with every column of hers that they publish.

But I’m not the owner of the Washington Post, and Rand Paul’s not the President, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I can’t be the only red-blooded American columnist who saw starbursts the moment Senator Rand Paul took the microphone.

Rand Paul formidable? In what regard?

I can think of several areas, none of them publishable.

Watch Rubin turn on Rand Paul the next time the subject turns to foreign aid for Israel, which he wants to eliminate.

I wonder if she got the infamous leg tingle.

Comments at the Post are pretty good.

Example:

Had I been Neville Chamberlain, I’d have wrestled Hitler to the death in a steel cage match and prevented WW2!

Sort of a half-Godwin, that one.

Whatever the Washington Post pays Jennifer Rubin is wasted money.

She’s a complete waste of column space.

“Rand Paul’s not will never be the President,”

That’s more like it.

What “great damage”? Ms. Clinton, if she runs in 2016, is a shoo-in for the Presidency. Her ratings are high and I don’t think any rantings by the Righties yesterday hurt her at all. Perhaps made her seem stronger compared to people like Rand Paul and Bitter McCain.
