My father dodged the draft by signing up for the Navy on December 8th, 1941. He was sunk twice. His brother dodged the draft by joining the Army. He was injured twice, in North Africa and Italy.

Speaking of jesus --

sweet baby jesus can we please stop talking about Vietnam and the draft? People, that was like 40 years ago. It's not interesting enough that we have to haul it out every effing week.

If you want to bring an online or 3-D discussion to a total halt, though, it's your friend. I'll give it that.

On the other hand, I think it's kind of fun to hear about people's family histories. We may be overdosed on Vietnam, but history in general makes great context and perspective.

Tomorrow's headline:

Administration emails about Benghazi paraphrased and edited by GOP Congressmen to reflect poorly on the White House. GOP attempts to cover up their own cover-up.

You cheated - insider info? wiretaps? What did you know and when did you know it?

The White House claims that Republicans doctored the widely cited "smoking gun" emails before leaking them to the press, made them look more insidious.

Sounds about par for the course.

Well come on, Huck, why should anyone bother to read the actual email when so many trustworthy folks are waiting to tell us exactly what it says?

Here's how somebody in the email loop described how things went down. Sounds credible.

Please proceed, governor. Get the transcript. Can you say that a little louder, Candy?

That painful moment is obviously seared into your memory.

For me, it was 10th grade biology class, when I stood before the class to identify the parts of a dissected crayfish, and kept referring to the "tentacles" as the "testicles." Class howled with laughter, I did not know why, and I kept repeating the mistake.

I've never had nightmares over my horrifying moment. Yourself?

Nightmares over your horrifying moment? So far, no. But are you sure you didn't confuse crayfish with cuttlefish, Huck?
Eventually, the larger male cuttlefish mate with the females by grabbing them with their tentacles, turning the female so that the two animals are face-to-face, then using a specialized tentacle to insert sperm sacs into an opening near the female's mouth. The male then guards the female until she lays the eggs a few hours later. On occasion, a large competitor arrives to threaten the male cuttlefish.

Back to the question at hand:

Exactly where was Obama and what specific actions did he take during the night of the Benghazi attacks?

He was busy reading "My Pet Goat." Wait... that was someone else.

Drudge Report? Come on, at least make an effort here.

First the bombshell was Rice, then Clinton, then Obama, then Hicks, now the emails... what will be the next fizzler?

We've learned one thing here: for a bunch of warmongers, the right wing SUCKS at building bombs.

Stevens was killed by mercenaries hired by Clinton because he knew too much about the murder of Vince Foster.
