Speaker of the House John Boehner's tweet to announce the Republican members of the Select Committee on Benghazi
Step right up! Meet your majority members here! (And don't forget to follow me on Twitter!)

Trey Gowdy, the chairman of this so-called non-political, non-partisan Republican theater, has already declared this hearing a "trial," with, presumably, the White House as the criminal and the Democrats as defense lawyers. And now John Boehner has introduced the rest of the gang. And they seem like they're ready to be completely fair ... and balanced.

Like the one who thinks Obama is uppity and said just last week:

I think that we know exactly what happened.
Or the one who spent a good part of last year pushing discredited stories told by a problematic witness, saying:
We still do not know who gave the order for them [the military] to stand down.
(Short answer: no one.)

Or the one who recently said the White House was:

... prioritizing spin and political interest above the truth.
You get the idea. Court is in session.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
