She really isn’t very bright.
A long essay, from James Poulos. I assume that this will be in the same issue mine and Zubrin’s will be.

Denying the obvious doesn’t make it go away. What was breathtaking about his performance was not that he claimed that the bias didn’t affect his behavior; it was his insane claim that the bias didn’t even exist.
More from Melissa Mackenzie:
The creepiest witness to ever grace a Congressional hearing, minced in his seat and evaded questions for hours on end Thursday. His name? Peter Strzok (pronounced “Struck” for the Democrats on the committee who kept mispronouncing it). The general impression from his testimony? What a complete weirdo.

I have to wonder how many other Strzoks, Pages, Ohrs, McCabes et al are at the agency. I think it needs a thorough housecleaning.
