Jon Stewart on Benghazi, McCain and Lindsey Graham (video)

John McCain: “I will do everything in my power to block her from being the United States Secretary of State. She’s not qualified.”

Jon Stewart: “That’s Senator John McCain, continuing his seven-year quest to negate every good thing he’d ever done prior to that.”

Jon Stewart on John McCain’s and Lindsey Graham’s incoherent and false outrage over Benghazi.
Via Raw Story:

jon-stewart-condi-rice“Unfortunately, that’s not really a fair one-to-one comparison, because Susan Rice admitted to the error within weeks — these two still refuse to acknowledge that invading a country based on information from a source named ‘curveball’ was actually considered a pretty shitty idea by many at the time,” Stewart said.

“If only we had a more direct comparison to make here. Like another high-ranking government official passing what they knew at the time was misleading intelligence to the American public on a Sunday news show, also in line to become secretary of state, and was African American, and a woman, and lets say her name was also Rice. That’d be something.”

    you’re a moron and Stewart is not

    Stewart is way above your league, Monique. It must be hell not understanding the irony behind his comments and the blatant partisanship displayed by McCain and Graham.

    Get Sadam Hussein for what? He had NOTHING to do with 9-11 which was the pretext that was used to justify our going to Afghanistan and Iraq. OBL was allegedly responsible for 9-11. bin Laden and Hussein are TWO totally different people.

    If the Bush administration lied, they lied to get Sadam’s ass, Obama lied to save his.

    Don’t let the facts concerning Benghazi get in the way of your partisan rant Mr. Stewart. For a smart man, you sure play dumb well.

    One can never assume McCain had common sense or decency—quite the opposite. His history is full of moral and ethical outrages and he has left a mountain of human destruction in his path. In spite of his rhetoric Harry Reid has no balls whatsoever and can be depended to cave on the most important issues. Scarlet O’Lindsey can always be found dancing in the bubble of military drag and ‘let’s pretend.’ He is staring to resemble Aunt Pity Pat.

    Condi Rice was also a corporate energy vulture.

    Mr. Thelma and Ms. Louise go over the hypocrisy cliff again.

    McCain’s defeat in the 2008 presidential race seems to have destroyed any common sense or decency he might have had before. I clearly remember McCain tricking Harry Reid in the summer of 2010 by slyly hinting that if Reid postponed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell until after the Arizona Republican primary in August, McCain would be cooperative and not lead a filibuster. McCain’s operatives put out the word that McCain wanted the postponement so that he wouldn’t be embarrassed by the far-right-wing Tea Party candidate who was running against him in the August primary. And the trick worked. Reid postponed DADT repeal until after the Arizona primary in August. McCain thanked Reid by stabbing him in the back and mounting the loudest, most vicious filibuster in memory. Reid got fooled once, but I don’t think he’ll be fooled a second time.

    And what of the pathetic closet case, Lindsay Graham? He must have relatives who loathe his queer ass, n’est-ce pas? Uncle Zeke, Aunt Hattie, ad nauseum. Graham will perform any hateful, obstructionist mission in the vain hope that it will make his Christianist relatives love him, in spite of his queerness. I can’t help but be reminded of the occasional Internet commenter. What a world, what a world. L-a-u-g-h-i-n-g O-u-t L-o-u-d.

    Except in Washington massive conflicts of interest is what it’s all about.

  • nicho

    There are good reasons to oppose Rice as Secretary of State, but this isn’t one of them. She and her husband own millions of dollars in stock in Canadian oil interests, which would benefit from the Keystone Pipeline decision, which comes under the jurisdiction of the State Department. She has a massive conflict of interests.
