Fool Me Twice.. I Can't .. You Can't Get Me Fooled Again..*

This seems like an odd little items on Fox News doesn't it?
.
Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy - the probable next Speaker of the House of Representatives and 3rd in line for the Presidency, should something happen - saying that a House Committee is not political.  That should be obvious, right?
.
Where did that come from, one wonders?
.
Actually it came from the big Republican liar's words a few days earlier.  Sean Hannity (political talking head on TV) was asking how the Republicans under him would do any better than under John Boehner.  So he explained his one big accomplishment.  Here is the quote.  Not the misquote. The quote. (link summary , link to Hannity)
.
MCCARTHY: I knew you'd want to ask it. What you're going to see is a conservative speaker, that takes a conservative Congress, that puts a strategy to fight and win. And let me give you one example. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened, had we not fought and made that happen.
.
Soooo... the longest investigation in history (longer than Watergate, the Kennedy Assassination or 9/11) has been fought to lower Hillary's electability.  It is the 7th committee focussing on this - the first 6 have found nothing out that reflects badly on Mrs. Clinton.
.
So this is our new Speaker of the House.  that's great.
