There is no end to the news stories surrounding The Most Transparent Administration, EVAH™ lately. It used to be that the White House minions would wait until 4 PM EST to dump any news. But lately it’s almost as if they are so complacent that they forget to manage the news cycle. I mean, they are just no longer even trying. A massive email dump is given to Judicial Watch as per their FOIA request, and you allow a former Nat’l Security Council spokesman with the attitude of a pimply 16 year old that has been turned down for Prom by his crush to go explain what the administration WASN’T DOING on the night of September 11, 2012?
Who is writing this drama? Nicholas Sparks?
First we learn that The Prez wasn’t in the Situation Room at all during the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, and Planet Hillary was….. not there either. Then Pimples Vietor drops another nugget: he was in charge of talking points for Ambassador Rice, and the talking points were changed from “attacks” to “demonstrations”. Hey, in my world without Common Core math, 2+2=4. But the biggest take-away anyone with two braincells and an axon can get is this: no matter what, the level on incompetence from ALL senior staff, The Prez included, was instrumental in the Benghazi terrorist attacks. People are in dire need of rescue and you can’t be bothered to even be briefed in the Situation Room? Shit, even MSNBC is turning on the administration!
And I can see 2016 from here.
We’re a month away from declaring a winner in the 2013 H&B DeadPool. the_botnet is still in the lead but not by much. A single death this month could change the outcome of this round.
This time of the year also means that its time to start preparing your lists for the next round. The H&B DeadPool 2014 site is now up and ready for you to start your lists.
Your usernames and passwords from the previous round will not work, it is necessary to sign up again.
The 2014 H&B DeadPool site is here: http://2014.hb-deadpool.com/
Lets go! Get your lists together! I’m sure the_botnet is not done collecting H&B beer steins yet!
It is nearing that time again. Soon, the site for the new season of H&B Deadpool will be open and you can start building your list.
Due to time constraints, the new site is simply an update of the existing site. I’ve made some bug fixes and a few other adjustments, but it is essentially the same site. I’ll post the URL soon.
What I’d like to do first is get some input on what the prize for the next round should be. So far the prize has been a coffee mug or beer stein with the H&B logo on one side and DeadPool Winner on the other.
The question is: does anyone have a better idea? Any ideas that get posted in the comments will go up in a poll in a couple of days for voting.

Jean Stapleton, the stage-trained character actress who played Archie Bunker’s far better half, the sweetly naive Edith, in CBS’ groundbreaking 1970s comedy “All in the Family,” has died. She was 90.
“Jean was a brilliant comedienne with exquisite timing,” Rob Reiner, who played the Bunkers’ liberal son-in-law Mike, aka Meathead, on the show, said in a statement to CBS News. “Working with her was one of the greatest experiences of my life. My thoughts go out to her family.”
