The Real Cost of That Planned Parenthood Investigation

esquire.comIt came as no surprise that Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Zygote) of Tennessee has had her name bruited about as a possible running mate for He, Trump. (Also, hello again to my new friend, Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa! I’m so proud.) After all, Blackburn was in charge of the second biggest waste of time and money in the House of Representatives this year behind only Trey Gowdy’s masterful pursuit of The Truth—which is Out There—behind Benghazi, Benghazi, BENGHAZI!

It was Blackburn who led the preposterous probe into the meretricious charges that Planned Parenthood was selling pieces of aborted babies in the parking lots of abandoned gas stations all over America. These hearings produced an array of witnesses even wilder and more unhinged than the folks Gowdy summoned to appear before him in his kangaroo suit. Heavily edited “undercover” videos were treated as gospel. Exhibits seemed to appear out of thin air. Even the editorial board of The New York Times pronounced itself appalled.
