I chopped down the Benghazi Cherry Tree.
But, gotta brag, did we ever cherry pick some great anti-Hillary
low hanging fruit from that hummer ...
The guy shouts, "Timber," starting at about 4:02 of this YouTube video.
UPDATE: McCarthy made "an absolutely inappropriate statement." This link. Which means ---
He told the truth. And should be rebuked, and told to apologize. Another Republican tells him that. Really. For being truthful. "Inappropriately," truthful.
Here, with a quote:
"I'm very supportive of Kevin McCarthy, but those statements are just absolutely inappropriate, they should be withdrawn, Mr. McCarthy should apologize. I just, I think it was absolutely wrong," Chaffetz told MSNBC's Chris Matthews in an interview on "Andrea Mitchell Reports."
McCarthy, who is a favorite to succeed John Boehner as speaker of the House, said during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday: "Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's untrustable."
Chaffetz was quick to rebuke the remarks, saying it undermines the Benghazi Select Committee's investigation of the 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Libya.
Yes. Dancing on dead men is the GOP fiction of the GOP day. Our little thing. Horrendously so. These Republican guys do not live in reality. They are in a fantasy world, where telling the truth dispels the transparent falsehood, that which we must not speak. We can't do that. Not in our programmed hard-wired OS code.
Unreal. So who should McCarthy "apologize" to?
Besides Hillary Clinton?
FURTHER UPDATE: Expect a Planned Parenthood special committee. These dudes never learn. Deceits and stupidity about them, as in who do they think they are fooling besides each other, are things programmed into their very DNA.
FURTHER UPDATE: An inevitable Democrat gasp and "Oh my," enhanced with a claim reported Oct. 1 by Reuters of an ethics breach - or not:
Pelosi said political efforts by the Benghazi committee could violate ethics laws that ban using taxpayers' dollars for political purposes.
"The question is, is this an ethics violation of the rules of the House?" she said. "I think he (McCarthy) clearly, gleefully claimed that this had a political purpose and had a political success."
McCarthy told Fox News on Thursday he "did not intend to imply in any way" that the committee's work was political.
Asked if he had apologized to the panel's chairman, Representative Trey Gowdy, McCarthy said: "I talked to Trey and I told him I regret that this has ever taken place ... and Trey goes: 'I know it's not your intention.'"
Boehner, a Republican, said the committee would continue its work. "This investigation has never been about former Secretary of State Clinton and never will be," he said in a statement that did not mention McCarthy.
McCarthy's words were widely considered a major gaffe.
"Major gaffe?" No. They were an act of honesty and courage to admit an ax-job, intended against Clinton.
