MSNBC carrying Hillary's testimony before Senate committee

live. Anyone else watching? She certainly laid out the facts early on and shut Corker's attempt at misinformation down outright.

26. Can't quote Rubes verbatim, but he asked some

extremely superficial question about "had Clinton picked up the phone to ask for the returnees' version of events".

She replied that she did not want to intervene until the investigation was complete, for fear of being accused of interference.

Obviously, he was trying to cast blame on her and the Dept. of State. He was completely out of his depth and out-classed by Hills.

He kept pushing and pushing about the story originally came out that it was a spontaneous attack. She got quite angry (but remained well composed) and essentially told him to STFU. "We had four people dead! We had to deal with that! What difference does that make now?!" Senator Douche Bag just sat quietly, never got another word in. Love it! Hillary Clinton is amazing.

It is quite amazing really to see the Repuglican Senators persisting in this conspiracy theory line of questioning.

Don't they have public relations and political consultants that advise them not to look like carping, whining, complaining, harping, "naboobs of negativism"?

But I suspect that they just can't help themselves ... it is just in their nature to be jerks.

They also, four weeks out, looked at me funny when I asked them about their absentee ballot program and the fact that asking if people needed a ride to the polls was not part of their script. You know you build that list as early as you can and stay in touch with them.

Sad...so very sad...
