This GOP Benghazi Hearing Is Actually Worth Having
The Republicans’ favorite crusade returns, but for the moment it’s focusing on a real policy issue—thanks to a Democrat.
I think the play by Trey Gowdy here is this: start off reasonably and get the media to run with the idea that he’s holding a substantial hearing, unlike all the others. However, I have no doubt that it will soon devolve into a red meat feeding frenzy for the wingnuts. I can just imagine the Morning Joe crew heaping praise on this “serious hearing that’s long overdue” (thankfully I’ve long given up watching that poor excuse for a smart political show).
