After recent revelations that the Benghazi hearings are nothing more than a partisan hit job on Hillary Clinton, it is apparent that we are watching not a true fact-finding mission by the GOP, but an ongoing political drama. Now a clever YouTube poster who goes by “PsychoSuperMom” has taken the headlines and stories about Benghazi and turned them from political theater into musical theater.
“Benghazi-The Musical” features a woman, identified at the end of the video as Lauren Mayer, playing piano, and a man named Scott Grinthal seated next to her, singing about Benghazi. Their lyrics are set to the music of several well-known Broadway show tunes, starting with “Maria” from West Side Story.
“What’s the favorite subject of right wing nuts? Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi,” the pair belts out, doing their best Ethel Merman impression. As they sing, a series of news headlines about the Benghazi hearings flash across the screen.
The pair puts Benghazi in perspective, crooning:
Cause if we think back to, oh, Iraq? That’s a bit worse than Benghazi
In less than three minutes Mayer and Grinthal give you more information about the Benghazi hearings than you will get in a month of Sundays listening to GOP sycophant Chuck Todd and Meet the Press. It’s worth a listen, and a share, especially with your conservative uncle Fred, who thinks that Benghazi is worse than Watergate, even though he probably can’t find Benghazi, or even Libya, on a map.
