    A message delivered by a volkswagen full of clowns will be taken about as seriouly as this one.

    Even if it’s a serious message.

    And it’s not a serious message. The exclusion of Pickering from the latest hearings — even though he begged to testify — and then saying multiple times that Pickering “refused to appear” — pretty much says it all. This has zero to do with truth, or the people who know the truth would have been allowed to speak. It’s 100% politics. And no, Clinton never promised to stay out of politics, that’s your strange voices whispering to you, Ima.

    His being denied an appearance at that committee hearing actually came via the White House supposedly relayed from the committee. He tried and failed to establish contact on this subject with the committee.

    Pickering stated in an interview on NPR “Certainly I made every effort the day before the hearing, including through the White House and their legislative people, to seek an opportunity to join the team testifying before the committee. I was told through the White House that that had been rejected. I was offered a kind of consolation prize of some other time.”

    Misuse of the sound bite, “What difference does it make”, is really getting irritating.

    It’s this years “…pass it to see what’s in it…” so we will be hearing it a lot more. Those who post it have no intention of reading the full statement, or seeking knowledge.

    Hey, you didn’t build that.

    This is not only out of context, but about as timely as a pair of spats.

    “With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”

    That’s the full quote, and every time some right-wing halfwit posts their butchered lie, this needs to be posted right behind it to remind people that the Fox “News” propaganda machine cares only about making the opposition look bad, and couldn’t care less about getting to the “truth.”

    The cartoon has evoked the regular collection of liberal and conservative personal attacks on the “bad guys”. However, the cartoon reminded me that our national anthem is supposedly built on the tune of a British drinking song. The closest I could find was something called the “Anacreontic Song”, but the lyrics didn’t seem to fit the tune of Mr. Key’s song. Anyone know what the tune is?
    @ mikefive – you have the best comments on this thread so far, neighbor. Keep up the good work.
    I’m still waiting for more info and wishing our legislature would do some job stimulus. A few other things.

    Why should anyone bother ? With both political parties ( plus the one represented
    by a teabag ) being , well, what they presently
    are, the most relevant commentators are
    the trolls.

    The Republicans are scared to death of Hillary, hence the pre-emptive strikes.

    Try looking at the post I was responding to.
    For you to miss the context of posts about context is…
    insert your own adjective here….

    Key was being held by the enemy when he wrote the poem. I’m pretty sure he didn’t think revealing classified information about American intelligence operations would be the patriotic thing to do at the moment. Why do you?

    With over 5,000 dead Americans, and hundreds of thousands of dead civilians overseas, indeed, “what difference does it make now”, that there were no WMDs in Iraq as of 2002? What difference does it make that "W"s folks never got bin Laden? (And years old “Intelligence” did NOT get the job done, by torture, or otherwise.)
