One-Note Attkisson On Carney's Successor: BENGHAZI!

Sharyl Attkisson is trying hard to make a name for herself by bringing up Benghazi! at every possible opportunity, whether or not it has anything to do with the topic at hand.
One-Note Attkisson On Carney's Successor: BENGHAZI!

I wonder if Sharyl Attkisson talks in her sleep, and if so, whether she shouts BENGHAZI! in an alpha state-induced haze at regular intervals. She just cannot resist flogging it at all turns.

Of course, without it and the controversy she is trying to create, she's just a failed has-been who used to have a pretty decent job at CBS News.

TPM:

Sharyl Attkisson, the investigative reporter who left CBS News earlier this year reportedly because of her frustrations with the network's perceived liberal bias, said Friday that the new face of the White House's press team stifled her efforts to get more information about the 2012 attack in Benghazi.

Almost immediately after President Obama announced that Josh Earnest would replace Jay Carney as White House press secretary, Attkisson reacted to the news on Twitter.

That's right, BENGHAZI!

This has, of course, electrified every wingnut conspiracy theorist on Twitter. They are sure this is all a theory to besmirch and confuse the Select Committee investigation. Also, it was apparently predictable.

Never does it occur to these mouth-breathers that Attkisson is getting ready to pimp her book about Benghazi!, her time at CBS, and the liberal media she walked away from.

I really loathe these people.
