I watched almost the whole thing: Cold from those damn plane rides. Gimleteye, also sick, told me to watch the hearing...then he didn't. Damn that guy. He always snares me to do stuff and then he doesn't.
At first I thought the hearings were bad for Hillary but as the day wore on into the night and she maintained her composure and they lost theirs...I thought Hillary Clinton was lucky to do the hearings. They made her look good. Very good. In one instance Martha Roby tried to make it seem like Hillary didn't care about the people who died because her staff didn't go home after they found out about the attack and Hillary did. Roby wanted her to name her staff that stayed one by one. It was quite stupid. Then it came out that General Petraeus was home too. In their homes they have some kind of apparatus (I guess to speak on -- like the red phone of the old days). I forget what it is called.
The Republicans on the panel were mean-spirited and asked the same questions over and over again. They were on high attack. Hillary Clinton remained calm throughout the double digit hours of questioning. The Republicans on the panel lost all credibility as the day wore one....getting nastier and nastier. It was sort of like watching the McCarthy hearings: A total witch hunt. One of the Democrats on the panel even said that. If they could have, they would have burned Hillary at the stake. Instead of looking bad Hillary Clinton showed she was an intelligent woman ready for anything. Her command of the facts was amazing. The Republicans looked so bad in their accusatory manner, firing off questions at breakneck speed. I will not vote for Donald Trump now. He is friends with the Kardashians, what could be worse than that? Oh, perhaps having the Koch brothers as your benefactor Mister Chairman Trey Goudy.
|Hilary has known this Blumenthal guy for years. Look at her here.|
ANYWAY: SCORE ONE FOR HILLARY! The McCarthyites (Republicans on the Committee) lost big time. It is no wonder everyone is supporting Donald Trump in the party.
|Trey Goudy looks like he has a goat's hair shirt under his suit for 'Mortification of the Flesh'.|
