Confirmed: Crocodiles are great swimmers

The New York Times reports that 15,000 crocodiles escaped from a South African farm. Having watched some of the  Republican senators swarm  Hillary at the hearing, I can tell the farmer where some of his missing crocs are hanging out.

How dare those evil Republicans ask Hilary Clinton tough questions! Who do they think they are......actually demanding accountability from the state department! Everyone knows that this adminstration should NEVER be questioned. So what if terrorists attacked our embassy and assasinated our ambassador? Who cares is the state department knowingly misled Americans about the nature of the attacks? The less we know the better!

I remember when journalists used to be concerned with uncovering truth and holding powers that be accountable. Thank God those days are long gone!

"The less we know the better"!

I believe that was one of mottoes the Bush Administration was kicking around for the Patriot Act.

Our favorite Tea Bagger conveniently forgets Republicans like Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz who voted to cut embassy security budgets.

Another dork who forgot the tape was rolling.

O’BRIEN: Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?

CHAFFETZ: Absolutely. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have — think about this — 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, private army there for President Obama in Baghdad.
And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces? When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices how to prioritize this.
