Bullies, as anyone who has dealt with them before will tell you, tend to be not all that bright.  And look, I know I’m hardly the first to the first to notice this, but Joe Biden would seem a prime example. They also tend to be rude, obnoxious and overbearing.  Think about it, gang. If […]

Janet NapolitanoNot in my wildest dreams would I believe that a US official could be so stupid as to say something like this in the face of unrelenting facts.

And intriguing enough is that it happened on CNN, whose reporting tends to be as supportive of the Obama administration as possible.

Of course, this is coming from the leader of the same department that earlier this year targeted “right-wing extremists” as high-risk for recruiting new members and conducting terrorist activities.
