GOP Senator: Susan Rice is the 'Typhoid Mary of the Obama Administration'
"Ms. Benghazi" Susan Rice is looking for a video tape she can blame on this "unmasking" mess (see Susan Rice Denies 'Unmasking' Trump Allegations...Except She's a Proven Liar and Morning Joe Breaks Media Silence on Susan Rice ‘Unmasking’ Scandal). And while some of us on the right have been taking justifiable shots, Sen. Tom Cotton just upped the ante bigly. Calling her Typhoid Mary? Bold move Cotton...
“[Rice was the] Typhoid Mary of the Obama administration foreign policy...every time something went wrong, she seemed to turn up in the middle of it — whether it was these allegations of improper unmasking and potential improper surveillance; whether it was Benghazi; or many of the other fiascos of the Obama administration.”
Sure, a gif of someone hysterically laughing hysterically may have been better, what with it being hysterical. But in blog school, they teach us that when you have an opportunity for a Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story reference...you take it. Job=fulfilled. Carry on, son.
We'll see how the media tries to avoid talking about this some more tomorrow. Today, though, we've had a bit of fun ourselves. Like this:
I know the media is doing its best impression of a toddler hiding his paint-smeared hands behind his back, while the world looks on at a splatter of wall art reaching no more than three feet high, but this right here is a genuine, grade-A scandal. It's the kind of political brouhaha a journalbryo (young journalist, I just made it up, thank you) fantasizes about while also fantasizing of living in a posh D.C. pad because that's how it is on TV and what's on TV is real.
Yet journalists aren't rushing to this story. The Susan Rice story of unmasking Trump's team, who alleged just weeks ago the Obama Admin spied on his team, happens to paint their white-hatted heroes as gutter-sniffing Morlocks.
I'm interjecting literary allusions in this piece. Go with it.
But this isn't 1984, where one political party rules them all and in the darkness binds them. This is 2017, and there's more than one media outlet for breaking news scandals to ooze out.
We'll see what tomorrow's catch might bring.
