I don't think the GOP cared about how they

looked to sane people or democrats.

These hearings were about keeping the money flowing. They just lost an election their right wing echo chamber had convinced their 'base' (if by base one means that group of knuckle dragging, Limbaugh-worshiping, Coulter-loving, Palin-panting, Fox-sheeple douchenozzles in Glenbeckistan) that they would win.

They really need this to grandstand for those know-nothings to show that they're going to be tough on those liberal Barack and Hillary democrats! And by God, look at all the good shots they got in today!

What happens when people that donate start to believe their money was wasted? Oh Noes! They'll start giving less.

So this GOP answer is to have these hearings, ratchet up the rhetoric, and double down on the absurd... in hopes of keeping the right wing cash from LooneyLand flowing. It's all they've got!

No. McCain, Rand and the rest of them don't give a shit at this point how they sound to the sane. These theatrics, and the Limbaugh-Beck-O'Rielly-Coulter-FOX media support forthcoming, will keep the donors happy for a little while.

4. I did see one Republican congressman who was respectful

and asked some good questions, and Hillary responded in kind. It was someone with the last name Cook from California.
He was a former Marine.

10. Yeah, Issa's district must be the teabag

capital of the state! Ah yes, Orange County-Pendleton-Carlsbad.... that's it. Used to live in Oceanside... plenty of liberals, just more righties.

11. They don't care how they look because they are from safe districts or states. They are appeasing

their racist/sexist Tea Party freaks!
