Touchy about Susan Rice

Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau demonstrates his verbal finesse on behalf of Susan Rice in connection with the “unmasking” controversy. Like his former boss — indeed, like Rice herself — he’s a strong believer in the persuasive power of the ipse dixit. If you say so. Got it.

Students of ancient history may recall that it was Rice’s job (straight, no chaser) to know the events leading to the murder of our men in Benghazi on 9/11/12. That’s why she was sent out to five Sunday morning gabfests on 9/16/2012 to tell us that a hateful video did it.

This is what set him off.
