Yesterday, I turned on the television at lunch and watched The Reid Report. Host Joy Reid was downright truculent when interviewing Congresswoman Linda Sanchez over the decision of House Dems to agree to appoint people to the special committee investigating what happened in Benghazi when four Americans were killed in a terrorist attack. Evdiently, Reid and others on the left think the Dems should have boycotted the panel. This is crazy. If the Dems boycotted the panel, they would twice, and twice only, get to say that the whole special committee risks turning into a Kangaroo Court. By not boycotting, the Dems will get to make that case every day. For a year and one half, Benghazi has made the right crazy. Now, it appears the affliction has spread to the left.
