No Benghazi Fatigue for the Right

(to the rhythm of Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love)
When the Fox News anchor
Who has never said a kind word
Starts to sing Issa’s lies
When the little GOP dumbell
At the bottom of the well
Starts to ring Clinton scandalmongering
When the mainstream media’s applause
In the middle of his work
Starts a tune to the angry white men up above
It is nature that is all
Simply telling us Obama is a clown

And that's why Rush does it, Hannity and his crew do it
Even Bachman and Palin do it
Let's do it, let's talk Benghazi

Koch Bro Acolytes 'gainst their wish, do it
Even Teabag Hacks do it
Let's do it, let's talk Benghazi 

And so the GOP will not shut up about the best “non-story” scandal since, well, the last one they came up with – with Obama not being a citizen coming to mind, though it’s hard to forget the Starr report and the grand revelation that a President actually had sex with a woman who was not his wife. Powerful men actually sleep around? I would have never guessed. In any case, the Fox News echo-chamber captured the Sunday talk shows as we prepare for another special Congressional investigation that will tell us nothing new. In fact, in this helpful fact check from the Washington Post, we see that most of those Benghazi rocks have not only been looked under, scanned by X-Ray and checked for DNA but sliced into paper thin sheets for examination by any and all conservative pundits. But why waste our time with real news, like Justin Bieber’s secret rehab trip or the latest desperate attempt of Miley Cyrus to stay relevant, when we can continue talking about a non-story that might help win some more votes for the corporate party that likes to play at moral indignation?
