1. All of my wat.


I'm missing a joke here. And I think it's probably a damned funny one. Someone fill me in?

2. Republican reactionaries wanted Hagel to come clean with his support of Friends of Hamas

Turns out that an exasperated reported asked a joke question about it.

Clueless Republican doesn't get it.

Writes it down.

Spreads it to friends

Republican Senators ask Hagel who doesn't have a clue what the hell they are talking about.

4. It is a joke

Friedman joked with a Capitol Hill source: “When rumors swirled that Hagel received speaking fees from controversial organizations, I attempted to check them out. On Feb. 6, I called a Republican aide on Capitol Hill with a question: Did Hagel’s Senate critics know of controversial groups that he had addressed? Hagel was in hot water for alleged hostility to Israel. So, I asked my source, had Hagel given a speech to, say, the ‘Junior League of Hezbollah, in France’? And: What about ‘Friends of Hamas’?” Somehow, that term filtered throughout Capitol Hill, perhaps igniting the rumor that landed with Shapiro.

Breitbart News exclusive scoop...

Other conservative media pick up the story.

Dim bulb SENATOR Rand Paul reads it and believes it and comments on it in an interview...

HH: Let me bring up one piece of information that Ben Shapiro at Breitbart put out today, which is one of the foreign funders behind Senator Hagel that he has not yet disclosed formally is something called Friends Of Hamas. If that is in fact true, Senator, would that lead you to vote against Mr. Hagel?

RP: You know, I saw that information today, also, and that is more and more concerning. With each day, there are new things coming out. So part of me wonders if the nomination continues to go on, and we’ll see how that goes. There are also either some organizations or corporations he’s been involved with that people, Ted Cruz in particular, has been asking are there any foreign contributors. And I think that is important. If you’re going to be in that high level a position in our government, we need to know if you have foreign sponsors, or have had foreign contributors. And I think that is pretty important, because people, that’s something that needs to be known.

HH: Well, let’s stay focused on Friends Of Hamas. Obviously, that would be a support group for a terrorist organization. Can you imagine voting or not filibustering anyone who’d received support from supporters of a terrorist organization?

RP: Like I say, it’s very troubling. And I’ve just seen the press report, so I’m going to have to look at what the response is, what the group is, and that kind of thing. But it is very concerning.

"Junior League of Hezbollah"

5. OMG what a maroon!

HH: Let me conclude by going one more time back to Secretary Hagel. Is it fair for me to conclude, tell the audience after you’re gone, that Chuck Hagel, in Rand Paul’s view, has to answer the question about whether or not he took money from Friends Of Hamas?

RP: Yes, that he has to, and I am going to wait and see what his answer is to that, and I’ve tried to keep an open mind on this. But I become more and more troubled with each day.

Rand Paul is such an idiot!

Can't Kentucky send someone smart to the Senate? Someone with half a brain, maybe? Maybe a woman? Maybe Ashley Judd, for instance? Just wondering.
