'Obsession': John McCain, Lindsey Graham Can't Quit Susan Rice (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

With Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham renewing their criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice after she visited Capitol Hill to answer lawmakers' questions about the Benghazi attack, any glimmers of hope that Rice's probable nomination as secretary of state wouldn't spur a political battle have once again dimmed. Regardless of the specific criticisms that McCain and Graham have leveled against the administration's Benghazi response, Rice has been their main target: In numerous media appearances, the two senators have called Rice everything from "incompetent" to "not very bright" to "deeply troubling." Even White House press secretary Jay Carney couldn't resist pointing out their "obsession" at Tuesday's press briefing.

Just how deep does McCain and Graham's obsession with Rice run? Take a look in the mashup above.
