Senator Rand Paul Gave an Incoherent Interview with Secretary Hillary Clinton

Republicans looked delusional as they took advantage of television cameras focused on Hillary Clinton, when they created an acrimonious encounter with the Secretary about her Benghazi testimony to Congress.  Obviously, Republicans weren't taking the advice of highly paid public relations consultants when they deliberately confronted a highly popular Secretary of State and former First Lady of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Republicans demonstrated their ego during the Senate committee hearings. They behaved like angry men, desperate to demonstrate their political might.

Thankfully, Secretary Clinton didn't lower herself to these made for television attacks.

Senator Rand Paul - Republican from KY, clearly over reached during his ruthlessly incoherent interrogation of Secretary Clinton, looking especially stupid when he invented an unsubstantiated question that didn't correlate with his committee rants.  Senator Paul went verbally ballistic about how the Benghazi attack left him exasperated about how the information was revealed, angry and determined to find out the truth about what happened when Ambassador Stevens was killed in a Benghazi terrorist attack on the consulate. Yet, Senator Paul didn't follow his incoherent ranting with a reasonable question.  Instead, Paul asked Secretary Clinton an inconsistent question about gun running to Turkey. His question was a tangential query about a situation that no one except for delusional Fox News followers created.

Republican Senators who brutally criticized Secretary Clinton on television were speaking to the right wing voters in the 2016 and beyond election.  But, hot winded Republican Senators were also addressing a dwindling circle of zealots who respond to rhetoric rather than truth.  The Right Wing Rand Paul spoke to Secretary Clinton like he was the Wizard of Oz,  shrouded by the protection of his desk, looking down as though she was a menial public servant.  At the end of Senator Paul's chaotic discourse, he didn't reveal any new information about the death of Ambassador Stevens or the attack on the Benghazi consulate. He wasted Secretary Clinton's valuable time before the committee and made himself look like a braggart, focused only on himself, rather than the Benghazi attack.

Although Senator Paul said he wanted answers about what happened in Benghazi, his question to Secretary Clinton had nothing to do with the attack on the consulate! His question was, in fact, inchoherent.

Republican Senators, like Rand Paul, who thrive on creating television sound bites rather than demonstrate leadership, must all be voted out of office.  They're no more effective than an invisible Wizard of Oz.

It's time Senator Rand Paul is relieved of his Senatorial duties by being voted out of office. He's clearly more interested in creating political noise and intimidating Secretary Clinton than in being a responsible US Senator and statesman, who seeks truth and information about what happened in Benghazi.
