about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #342: "Benghazi-Gate"? May I Suggest "Give-Obama-the-Gate"?

In his ongoing cover-up of the cover-up related to the 11 September 2012 attack, President Obombast said “There’s no there there”.  That Obama eloquence just keeps flowing, doesn't it?
The Obfuscator-in-Chief also dismissed as a "sideshow" the efforts of Republicans (and a pitifully small number of Democrats, whom, unsurprisingly, he didn't mention) to learn the whole truth about the actions that his administration took as a result of what happened in Benghazi.  In a way, he's right; just as when the Clintons were jointly president, government scandals are coming along so quickly that you practically need a database to keep track of them, and so the one concerning Benghazi could well become lost in the crowd.
