Sean Hannity's fevered brain has been working overtime to come up with a way to hold up Benghazi with his right hand and any other news story with his left in order to distract his radio listeners and television viewers from reality.

On his radio show, Hannity dished up some delicious GarnerGaziGate with a side of stupid. Taking aim at John Boehner, Hannity accused him of second-guessing the grand jury decision in the Eric Garner case. (Note to Hannity: It is not a "verdict." It is a decision by the grand jury not to recommend charges be brought against someone.)

He then went on to ridicule Boehner's comment about possibly holding Congressional hearings on the issue.

"Is this the same John Boehner that showed zero enthusiasm about the Benghazi hearings," Hannity fumed.

Hannity objected to the prospect of hearings, saying "Well, the Justice Department is looking into that. The FBI is looking into that."

Because for Hannity, an eighth Benghazi! investigation which will once again reveal no one did anything wrong is far more important than understanding how a black man died from a chokehold in New York City.

As a final blow, Hannity reminded John Boehner of what his job is. "Your job is simple and that's to stop the President."

Funny, I thought their job was to deal with the very real problems this country has.
