One guess who missed the Big Important Top Secret Classified Benghazi Briefing after having bellowed his disrespectful b.s. all over the airwaves. I’ll give you 3 seconds to answer.
And guess where he was right smack in the middle of this top-secret event? Holding a press conference right there in the Capitol to demand– wait for it– a Watergate-style special Congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack.
(CNN) – When CNN approached McCain in a Capitol hallway Thursday morning, the senator refused to comment about why he missed the briefing, which was conducted by top diplomatic, military and counter-terrorism officials. Instead, McCain got testy when pressed to say why he wasn’t there.
“I have no comment about my schedule and I’m not going to comment on how I spend my time to the media,” McCain said.
Asked why he wouldn’t comment, McCain grew agitated: “Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?… I’m upset that you keep badgering me.”
Awww, poor wittle John Sidney McCain is tantruming because the mean ol’ pwess is doing its job.
If you’re into irony, try this on for size. Of those attending the briefing, only three of the eight GOP members of the committee attended, while seven of the nine Democratic members were there.
Apparently, if you scream and whine and accuse loudly enough on Tee Vee, your presence is no longer required for the very thing about which you’re screaming, whining, and accusing.
