First things first: today’s cartoon is something of a placeholder until we can post something about last night’s second Presidential debate (which is still hours away as we write this).
But that being said, what a load of codswallop we’re being handed in the ongoing Benghazi scandal. Specifically, to take pressure off of Barack Obama during the debate, Hillary Clinton suddenly decided to change her story entirely and take complete responsibility for the security failings which led to the successful Al-Qaeda attack on our consulate, and the brutal murders of four Americans.
But wait – what does she mean by “complete responsibility?” It seems that she means she’ll take complete responsibility for looking to see which “security officials” working under her should have prevented this massacre, and will then study solutions to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
No sooner was this highly unconvincing mea culpa out of Hillary’s mouth than she hopped a government jet to whisk her as far from inquisitive reporters as possible - specifically to a conference in Peru to discuss women’s rights, ride llamas, listen to Andean pan flute music, and (like her boss) claim that she can’t answer questions clearly if she’s too far above sea level.
And unlike the consulate in Benghazi which she left defenseless against Al-Qaeda, Mrs. Clinton will be fully guarded at all times. Perhaps in case she’s attacked by the radical llamas of Al-Paca.
