Yesterday, during Secretary Clinton's Benghazi testimony, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson once again distinguished himself as a pernicious canker upon the body politic. GOP lawmakers were giving Madam Secretary a hard time in order to create vdeo footage for their almost-certain swift boating of her in 2016, should she receive the Democratic nod for President.
