ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

McCarthy Does Damage Control on Benghazi Comments (ERICA WERNER, 9/30/15, AP)

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's campaign for speaker veered into damage control mode Wednesday after he suggested that the House Benghazi committee can take credit for Hillary Rodham Clinton's slumping poll numbers.

McCarthy's comment, made on Fox News Channel as he sought to court conservative support, seemed to contradict longstanding GOP claims that the Benghazi committee is aimed simply at uncovering the truth. And it gave credence to Democratic accusations that the real aim is to attack Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate who was secretary of state when the attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya killed four Americans.

"Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?" said McCarthy. "But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's un-trustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen."

Is there anybody who didn't recognize that the whole kerfuffle was just a function of Hillary hysteria on the Right?  He needn't apologize for truth-telling.
