Republicans Doing Their Best to Look Like Idiots Today


From the annals of headlines your presidential campaign really doesn’t want to see:

In other news, Republicans are currently grilling FBI Director James Comey about his decision not to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton over her email server. I’m “watching” the hearing on Twitter, and it doesn’t seem to be going well. It turns out that Comey is considerably smarter than your average GOP member of Congress. “There’s no evidence that she lied to the FBI,” he says clearly, thus proving the old adage that you shouldn’t ask a question you don’t know the answer to. The upshot of the whole thing may actually help blunt some of the criticisms Comey made of Clinton in his press conference on Tuesday. Nice work!
