Hillary Testifies Before Right-Wing Drama Queens On Benghazi Attack

The long awaited day is here. Hillary Rodham Clinton testifies before Congress today -- on the subject of the attack in Benghazi, Libya. 

Republicans have been wailing and pining for some drama. Expect them to make some. Expect Hillary to crush them like bugs.

The right-wing drama will be televised. Prepare to be entertained:

Republicans on Wednesday will get their last shot at the woman many of them say has the most to answer for with regard to the 9/11 anniversary assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Call it Hillary Clinton’s exit interview. But instead of getting a gold watch for her service as secretary of state, the former first lady will provide testimony under oath before both the House and Senate committees that deal with foreign affairs...

Clinton, who as a senator served on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will be squaring off against Marco Rubio, the Republican from Florida who is considered one of the strongest contenders for his party’s presidential nomination in the next election cycle...

Clinton’s toughest grilling, however, is likely to come in the House of Representatives. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican who serves as a subcommittee chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, says he plans to focus on why there appears to be no response to date against the groups who attacked the U.S. facility, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans that evening.
