Dissing Issa

What President Obama has rightfully called a "sideshow" -- the Benghazi! BENGHAZI!! witch hunt -- seems to be slowly circling the drain.  As evidence of its nothingburger status, the two respected co-chairmen of the Benghazi accountability review committee, Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, have asked Rethug circus barker Rep. Darrell "No Suh" Issa for a public hearing at which they can testify on the Benghazi matter.  No Suh just wants them to testify in a closed hearing, not surprisingly, since he's using the hearings as a political stunt to bring the current President and the (hopefully) next President, Hillary Clinton, down.  A copy of the Pickering/Mullen letter to the circus barker was obtained by CNN, and it's clear that they're wise to his attempt to hide their testimony and play political games.

When you don't want your "show" to be seen in public, maybe it's time to close it.
