    I’m not even going to click on that. So there. I’ve had it. I’m greasing-up the cat, and we’ll see what happens after that.

    Time for talkin’ is over.

    We need a word or phrase that describes this – it’s like an externalized Dunning-Kruger effect.Not only is someone so bad at something they can’t judge their own performance, they feel that they are entitled to impose that “performance” on others.

    We’re talking about people who look at a philosophy that has created over two centuries of violent conflict, starvation, destruction, pogroms and failure… and they think, “hey, that must be the right way to go!”

    And even on basic facts they are in utter denial. It’s either “sure it never worked before, but it will this time” or “LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!”

    The entire Benghazi thing will lead to multiple charges of treason for multiple individuals if there’s the tiniest bit of justice left in the republic.

    What is this “justice” you speak of?

    While Americans were in a firefight in Benghazi, Uhbama was politicking for his upcoming election, just as I suspected. He had to get ducks in a row re: Israel and get a good night’s sleep for his campaign trip the next day. Because he is such a naif on real world politics, he had to have the experienced in foreign affairs Joe Biden at his side (actually so Plugs would not go out and contradict his Master), leaving some poor junior officer stuck on the Situation Room watch despairing and senior officers in the Mid East on a leash.
    Meanwhile brave men were fighting for their lives and dying, and Captain Shitstain was being advised, not by experienced warriors and diplomats, but by an idiot vice president, formerly the dumbest man in the Senate, and some young punk lawyers.
    These people are beneath contempt, and if TSHTF, their ilk and their supporters will get no help or mercy from me.

    BTW, thanks for the link Doug. It was very sobering.
