#1 Last night Hanity said "we don't even know if Ambassador Stevens knew Sufyan Ben Qumu". I hope it was not the case, but what an absolute disaster if Stevens was coordinating a meet between Qumu and the MANPAD team. There has got to be yet even more to this story.

#2 In other news: Jay Carney releases statement on the recent sinking of a fishing boat in the Gulf.
"From the imagery now available, it is self evident that the two fishermen were lost when a strong wave capsized the craft during a storm".

They are actually happy with it as America is bad and the poor, repressed brown type non-americans have brought us down.
Seriously. That is what they think.

#7 Susan Rice looks even more like a dim-witted fool. Jay Carney is repeatedly shown to be a dissembling asshat. Victoria Nuland is a lying boot Prada licker.
But hey! Obama's still clean, right? WaPo says so

#8 Lots of low hanging fruit for the debates. If Romney, can't hit a home run with what he has got to use, he does not deserve to be president. He can ask Obama why his administration lied about the Libyan ambo murder. Why his administration lied and covered up Fast and Furious? Why he engaged in crony capitalism with people who were his bundlers--Solyndra for example? Why did all these companies fail and what happened to the assets? ACORN and election rigging. New Black Panther and voter intimidation--no prosecution. Why did he screw the GM bond holders to pay back the auto unions for their support in the election? Mideast policy and why it is failing. Why he threw our only ally in the mideast under the bus. Why he has no viable domestic energy policy. Univision did the only real interview I've seen since he became President. He did not like being questioned by the Univision interviewers. Obama could be in for a rough time in the debates if the Pubs are willing to play hardball.

Yep. If. Except the Stupid Party hasn't played "hardball" in about 100 years. They'd strike out at "T" ball.

#10 They have to view this race as a war which if they lose, the country as we know it does not exist. Hope they are to the war. Romney needs to come out of the corner swinging because he is going to be dealing with a lying president and a press made up of Obama sycophants who get tingling feelings up their legs over Obama.

#11 #2 In other news: Jay Carney...
Grenade fishing? I can recall of doing this sort of thing with a 1/4 stick of dynamite as a much younger person. Those were the days when you could buy dynamite in the hardware store to blow out stumps.

#12 Susan Rice looks even more like a dim-witted fool.
The Diplomad blog has some background on the events and mentions having worked with Ms. Rice. Summary: dreadful political hack. And that was the nice part.
