Sure, our ambassador was murdered and the Obama administration is lying about it, but the real story is that McCain is a grouch

CNN wants you to look over there!

Most of the Republican members of a Senate committee investigating the terrorist attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, skipped a classified briefing by administration officials on the incident Wednesday, CNN has learned…

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.

BREAKING: McCain’s Got a Temper

Well, that’s the real news, isn’t it? Here’s the rule: When a Republican screws up, that’s the story. When a Democrat screws up, the Republican response is the story.

So what if this changes absolutely nothing about the Benghazi debacle? That’s hardly the point. The point is to provide a distraction. The point is to protect Obama. And our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left sure are excited about it.

Meanwhile, four Americans who fell in service of their country are still dead, a guy who made a stupid YouTube video is still sitting in jail, and the Obama administration is still lying about it. But hey, what is all that compared to Wolf Blitzer’s hurt feelings?
