McCain to reporter on Benghazi:“That’s one of the dumbest questions I’ve ever heard”

Hat tip to John Nolte for the following clip. It’s tough to hear the reporter’s question, but Nolte summarizes it:

You’ll have to turn the video volume all the way up, but this obtuse reporter seriously seems to suggest to McCain that his Libya inquiry is a big waste of time because the national security issues surrounding the Petraeus affair are what’s really important.

To which McCain replies:

“Well, I say with great respect, that’s one of the dumbest questions I’ve ever heard. Okay? It’s four dead Americans.”

Yeah, but Petraeus has been acting like Bill Clinton! Why do these wingnuts keep trying to distract us with some dead ambassador or whatever?

As Juan Williams reminded us, with regard to one of the other Obama scandals that the press doesn’t want to cover: “Hey, people die.”

    “Hey, people die.”

    I hope Juan maintains that attitude when his ilk are dead in the streets after the financial collapse.

    is this the same juan williams that got fired over at npr or something for being to conservative during obamas first term and all these “republican” talking heads felt sorry for him ?

    apparently neither juan nor the “republican” talking heads have learned anything in reagards to liberals, democrats and obama!

    I still can’t stomach Juan OR Juan McLame. This is just a case of a blind squirrel occasionally finding a nut.

    As for Lady Lindsey’s newfound bravado, he’s up for re-election.

    To hear MSNBC’s Martin Bashir report it, you would think that two different incidents were being reported.

    I’m waiting for MSNBC’s pathological liar Bashir to ask, are you going to believe me, or your lying eyes?
