Stupid is as stupid does: the Rand Paul edition

Hillary Clinton went before Congress today to answer questions about the Sept. 11, 2011, attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans were killed.

Benghazi has been a GOP wet dream, because the party and its Fox News propaganda outlet have been declaring it the worst U.S. tragedy since Osama bin Laden‘s Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the U.S.

Really that’s what they’re saying. Just ask Kentucky’s junior senator and senior Tea Bagger, Rand Paul:

“I’m glad that you’re accepting responsibility,” said Paul. “I think ultimately with your leaving that you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. And I really mean that.”

Those are the words that actually came out of his mouth at the Clinton hearing today.

And that’s why he’s an idiot.

Because if he doesn’t think the mass shooting at a grade school in Newtown, Conn., was worse.

Because if he doesn’t think the mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., was worse.

Because if he doesn’t think the mass shooting at a Tucson “meet-your-congresswoman” rally was worse.

Because if he doesn’t think the total loss of an American city during Hurricane Katrina was worse.

Because if he doesn’t think the lies his party told that got us into a war against a country that had nothing to do with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. were worse.

Then he’s incapable of rational thought, and everyone who put him in the Senate should be personally humiliated.
