Morning Report: The last Twinkie

It’s that day, America. The day we’ve dreaded. The day the Twinkies died. Not that I’m bitter, or that I ever ate Twinkies, but thought of it makes me a little sad. And a little miffed that someone with the apparent dedication to sweet treats that Richard Trumka seems to have would be so callous about the long-term survival of the Ding-Dong.

Anyway, we’re running late, so let’s get this done.

1. CBS News is reporting that, even though Susan Rice was on the Sunday talk shows days after the administration was already aware the Benghazi incident was a terrorist attack, her talking points were all about a protest gone horribly wrong. But, in case you were wondering, implying that in any public arena is completely sexist. Because Susan Rice is a woman or something.

2. Why did CBS News reveal that? Well, it seems that Gen. Petraeus will testify that he gave Susan Rice one set of talking points based on the CIA’s knowledge of the situation, and then she said something totally different on air. Because her talking points weren’t his talking points. And he’s unemployed now so what does he care.

3. The Pentagon is very interested in whether Jesus came to save the Klingons.

4. The CIA has, however, released one report. Not dealing with Benghazi. Well, actually, that depends whether you think that Climate Change has something to do with Benghazi.

5. Thank heavens we have female legislators, because otherwise who would call on the female reporters?

Good luck, America. And good Twinkies.
