The Gorelick contagion

In response to The First Rule of Washington Club is Do Not Criticize Washington Club:

Once a Beltway Brahmin – Hagel, Kerry, Hillary Clinton – your sinecure is forever safe. The ultimate example is Jamie Gorelick, the unremovable Typhoid Mary behind every government disaster of the last 15 years. 

I’m honestly surprised that Gorelick never popped up during the Benghazi scandal.  I kept thinking we’d find out she was the one who ignored all of the Ambassador’s requests for extra security, or maybe the source of the stand-down order, or perhaps she would stand revealed as the still-mysterious figure who allegedly edited all those talking points to insert patently absurd babble about a “spontaneous video protest.”  Also, I really thought she would turn out to be the Smoke Monster on “Lost.”
