Exploding Heads? I Don't Think So

Here's a bit of a screen capture from Charles Johnson, a person with years of experience following right wingers, showing how, even at this point, people on the left fail to understand the dishonesty that underlies right wing propaganda:

So the House Intelligence Committee, with (obviously) a Republican majority, found absolutely nothing wrong with the Obama Administration's handling of the Benghazi tragedy.  But as for heads exploding:  I took a look this morning at all of the sites that I normally watch to include in Wingnut Wrapup, and guess what?  Not one of them had a single article about this committee and its report.

That's right- their heads didn't explode, they just ignored this humiliation and moved right on with all of their other phony scandals.  And don't count Benghazi out yet.  In a couple of weeks, when they think their followers are sufficiently past remembering this, they will be back on Benghazi again.

Never underestimate the dishonesty of the right.

And by the way, great dog, huh?

A Little Update:  From Media Matters, this rather unsurprising report:

"Fox News has gone silent on Benghazi amid reports that the House Intelligence Committee concluded that there was no intentional wrongdoing in the Obama administration's response to the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya."

As long as their base believes it, truth does not matter. They will still claim a WH coverup, a very good WH coverup.

Yeah, they just have to wait until things have grown a little hazy in peoples' minds, and they can trot out the lies again. And there is still at least one more "investigation" to go.

Speaking of one more investigation to go, is it just me or does anyone else think Trey Gowdy looks like a grown up Draco mMlfoy?

It's not just you. I've heard other people say that.
