After a number of the talking heads over at Fox "news" slammed Congressional Republicans for not going after Hillary Clinton hard enough during the Benghazi hearings this week and showing the exchange between Clinton and Sen. Ron Johnson during the Senate hearing, Colbert accused Johnson of allowing Clinton to "step all over Ron's Johnson" and"spank him."

Colbert showed Johnson ending the exchange by saying "thank you Madame Secretary" and wondered why the Senator would do so unless "thank you Madame Secretary" was his "safe word."

After showing Johnson and a bunch of the talking heads on the right claiming that Clinton's anger during the hearings was just an act and made up, Colbert followed with this:

COLBERT: Don't get me wrong. These guys know something about faking emotions. They do it every day and I respect them for it. But in this case I'm not buying it. First, it just makes the Republicans look weaker. Now they lost to something that wasn't even real.

And second, second... if you're saying Hillary could fake that kind of anger, that's saying that every woman I've ever enraged might have been faking it. I don't think so fellas. I mean I've infuriated my share of the ladies over the years and let me tell you, I get them there, okay? They always seem pretty worked up. You know, you can tell when it's real. I mean, they're screaming the whole time. I've even had my neighbors complain. [...]

Anyway, these hearings were a debacle that left unanswered the one question they were really about. Is there anything we can do to stop Hillary in 2016?
