Thoroughly Modern Silly

Republicans took some time off from floor speeches about naming post offices and bridges and why Obamacare sucks to gather in Baltimore and review their plans for the second session of the 114th Congress. Retreats like this get them out of Washington for a while as a way to relax while discussing issues without the pressing floor vote schedule getting in the way. It’s a healthy idea.

They even took time to watch a few movies, including “13 Hours” by Michael Bay which looks at the September 2012 Benghazi attack. It has a running time of 2 hours, 24 minutes by the way.

Alabama Senator Tom Cotton told the Washington Examiner he thinks the movie shows Hillary Clinton’s “grotesque conduct” after four Americans were killed in an attack on the US consulate in Libya. I might add, beside attending movie previews, Senator Cotton also likes to write letters and sent one to Iran’s leaders saying the nuclear deal they have yet to sign with the six world powers will be voted down by Congress.

Now back to the movie. Congress has set up eight different committees to investigate Hillary Clinton’s role after the Benghazi attack. 32 separate hearings have been held, the most recent being the 11-hours she spent before the House Select Committee on Benghazi last year.  This has cost millions of dollars but, as we all know, getting to the truth is expensive.

It was nice of Michael Bay not to charge the Republicans for attending the movie. Those folks really do care about finding the truth while being economically smart plus: it only required 2 hours and 24 minutes. I suggest they see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” when they have to do the next Defense and NASA budgets.
