Oh, my. The whack jobs really are off the leash lately, aren't they? A little drunk tweeting? I guarantee you this: Nothing Rohrabacher (famous war-loving chickenhawk) says will ever be bad enough to ban him from the Sunday talk shows -- because that's just how they roll!
The Kookville Express and its happy, wild-eyed conductor, Dana Rohrabacher, has shifted routes in yet another attempt for a cheap two-fer ticket: to derail President Barack Obama's second term and sabotage Hillary Clinton's potential future White House run.
First, the Costa Mesa Republican declared (without possessing any supportive facts) that the events of Benghazi were "worse" than the felony-rich Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon in 1974.
That absurd comparison didn't go far except with faithful Kookville passengers.
Stymied, Rohrabacher changed strategies.
Benghazi is apparently no longer worse than Watergate.
Now, he is trying to take sly advantage of massive, pre-Oscar publicity for Argo, Ben Affleck's film.
Rohrabacher claims Benghazi is like President Jimmy Carter's failed 1980 helicopter attempt to rescue American captives in Iran.
"Maybe Prez thought failed rescue = no re-election, like Carter in 1980," the congressman theorized on Twitter late Tuesday night.

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday told Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) that he was "getting off track" when he suggested that Republicans were hypocrites for continuing to attack President Barack Obama's administration over last year's attacks in Benghazi after pressuring the State Department to cut funding for security personnel by voting to cut embassy funding.
During an interview on PBS's Charlie Rose this Wednesday, Politico's Mike Allen let one slip and told that host that behind closed doors, Republicans admitted the only reason to keep up the scandal-mongering on Benghazi was because Hillary Clinton might run for president in 2016. Read more...
