The Benghazi Hoax is the product of hyper-partisan zeal on Capitol Hill -- familiar enough -- mixed with a new and virulent strain of Tea Party-tinged Benghazi Trutherism in the conservative grassroots. "Benghazi, you let them die," a heckler shouted at Clinton during a speech this week.
The public has seen the results of the Banana Republican policies and politics. The public has seen the damage of these GOP policies and practices to them. The public is saying no to Cruz, no to Lee, no to the Tea Party and no to House Republicans.
Following a slew of other bills introduced this year to address America's broken patent system, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte released a second draft of a proposal to extend and amend the America Invents Act of 2011.

This week's announcement that the Justice Department is going to drop its appeal against providing the morning-after birth control pill to anyone who needs it comes as such a welcome change that we feel the award is deserved.
There is no scandal here but there is an unseen, unpublicized, and potentially more dangerous failure clouded by Republican histrionics that distracts and affects the American people.
Ron Reagan and Mary Matalin debate Obama's speech refuting Bush-Cheneyism on terrorism. Was it transformational or largely rhetorical? No more treating local thugs as UBL? And despite Noonan's & Will's best efforts to blur Obama & Nixon, 44 has the Teflon of 40.
Canada gets it. They are recruiting the world’s brightest people who our crazy immigration laws repel.
Our national politics increasingly resembles a party in which your crazy uncle got hold of the karaoke microphone and won't give it back until he finishes a paranoid rant. Maybe if you pour him another Manhattan, he'll pass out before all your guests leave.
