Wait.....the Teabaggers said we hadn't done ANYTHING about Benghazi.......
Apparently we've built a case against the guys behind the attack on the CIA compound, filed charges, and are actively hunting for the criminals.....
Take that Darrell Isa, you HACK

You can be sure that after horses evolve into something else, GOPers will still be beating dead horses.

I dont know what all the fuss is about with them making a movie about Hillary. I think a movie about Hillary would be very entertaining to watch. The movie could delve into to Whitewater. You could make a mini series on Whitewater alone. Then her time as first lady and how Bubba constantly cheated on her. Maybe Lewinski could make a cameo. Then you could cap it all off with Benghazi and the numerous other scandal cover ups that she oversaw as her time as Secretary of State. That just sounds like good telivision to me.
Neocon Handy/Rusty, I will not argue against the demons in your head that deny the earth is warming at an alarming rate. I urge you to have a stiff drink or something.
To The Horror Of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here
Seems that there is a correlation between earth's elliptical orbit and warming and cooling cycles, and there is no correlation between historical CO2 levels and warming.
Even the alarmists are no longer peeing themselves over phony global warming.
we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books…mine included…because it looked clear cut…but it hasn’t happened.” Lovelock pointed to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Tim Flannery’s “The Weather Makers” as other alarmist publications.
Just for you Handy.
Nothing to see here though. The Fossil Fuel funded thinks tanks tell us this is all just a hoax.
"I will give a buffalo nickel to anyone who can explain what the man is on about here. Pro-choice people make you uncomfortable in the showers? Isn't that supposed to be gay people who do that? I speak fairly fluent Wingnut, but I confess I'm lost here. Luckily, Santorum has anchored this strange hygiene class firmly in American history."
Rick is clearly off his rocker.
It is what they're best at......
Maybe when they shut down the Government in a foolish attempt to stop the AHCA they can then burn down the horse's barn.
And WHY do you care?
It's NOT your child, so STFU
From the article:
"On Wednesday, Ryan was blasted as a liberal, amnesty-loving union suck-up."
I love the GOP flame wars
@curt3rd And than it could wrap up with her becoming the next president of the US.
I like your options. After all, there are other things in this world that are stiff.
Just axe sacred...
Liberals honestly believe that they can control the weather..They really, really do..
@ahandoutAnother clueless denier
Peter Ferrara is a senior fellow for entitlement and budget policy, a senior fellow at the Social Security Institute, and the general counsel of the American Civil Rights Union at the Heartland Institute.
Ferrara heads the Social Security Project of the Free Enterprise Fund, which supports the Bush administration's effort to privatize Social Security. 
He served in the White House Office of Policy Development under President Reagan, and as Associate Deputy Attorney General of the United States under President George H.W. Bush. Stance on Climate Change
"Any speaker, any authority, any journalist or bureaucrat asserting the catastrophic danger of supposed man-caused global warming needs to be asked for their response to Climate Change Reconsidered. If they have none, then they are not qualified to address the subject." Key Quotes
"While I am not a scientist, and write primarily on economics, tax policy and budget issues, I have been fascinated over the years by Heartland’s work on climate change." 
I hate to tell you this, but you've managed to turn a well known truth regarding climate cycling into a lie worthy of complete ridicule:
Not only has CO2 been known as a greenhouse gas for over 100 years, but the change in the ellipticity of earth 's orbit takes a hundred thousand years or so. Not two hundred like you are trying to imply.
I see that your home schoolerizing has left you a bit short of a full basket.
@ahandoutWrong. Stupid and wrong. Of course I expect nothing less from you.
And who is the gent who wrote the article above?
Bell appears to have no background in climate science. His Forbes blurb states that "Weekly columnist Larry Bell is a professor at the University of Houston and author of Climate of Corruption"; his University of Houston professorship is in "Space Architecture", where he is director of the Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture (SICSA) - an institution funded by the Sasakawa Foundation, which was founded by Ryoichi Sasakawa, "rightist and gambling figure" who was "the last living member of a group accused after World War II of the most serious war crimes" (and "gave millions of dollars to charity").; the foundation is chaired by Sasakawa's son.[Misinformation at Forbes Magazine by Larry Bell | Global Warming ...
Weelll. You certainly get what you pay for.
Wassa matter? Can't afford the cost of science books?
@ahandout Seeing as he originally claimed that Billions would die and humanity would be reduced to a few people living at the Poles the fact that he is scaling back from that prediction doesn't make me real comfortable. Its kind of like the doctor telling you good news instead of dying in 6 months, you will live out the rest of your life as a brain dead cripple.
Come on "bugs", you don't actually believe that do you? Mars' wobble killed those fish, duh.
Because Gay people don't produce children so clearly the pro-life position is about the evils of homosexuality?
Actually, I think Santorum wanted to proselytize to everyone he met and was thinking about how uncomfortable he was bringing the subject up while showering at YMCA and didn't understand that it has absolutely nothing to do with the abortion debate and everything to do with "why the f*** would you talk to a random stranger while in the YMCA showers?"
@retiredvet Speaking of Rick - and when I was earlier, I quoted Charlie - we should probably hear from the Washington Examiner as well.
@retiredvet You just know sooner or later Rick will be caught in a men's room soliciting.
@nflfoghorn, we went and got Chinese take out. I ate myself into a stupor and then fell asleep. Life is good.
It's a feedback loop of crazy.
@forgottenlord, everything Santorum knows about the YMCA came from a Village People song. He can't get it out of his heads.
It's so specific that it can't possibly be anything other than a personal story, IMO. It also happens to be the only way this makes the remotest sense. I mean, seriously, when was the last time you heard someone specifically cite YMCA instead of, say, the gym or the pool or...X
