Joe Biden channels “Hogan’s Heroes” Sgt. Schultz on Benghazi: “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!”
Some Red Staters will recall “Hogan’s Heroes,” the 60’s TV comedy set in a German POW camp during WW II. The bumbling, stumbling, fumbling guard, Sgt. Hanz Schultz is the most iconic character from the series, and during the VP debate, Joe Biden channeled the good sergeant in an effort to distance himself, and Obama, from the fast growing scandal about the utter lack of security at our embassy in Benghazi, which led to the death of four Americans.
“The President and I, we were NEVER told about it,” Biden vehemently protested to Martha Raddatz.
“I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing,” Schultz would protest to any and all, looking the other way as the Allied POWS plotted and schemed right in front of him. He would do anything, say anything, to avoid blame, and having to take responsibility for all that occurred on his watch.
Schultz carried a rifle, which he never kept loaded, because he was always misplacing it, and the POWS would grab it. “Give me back my gun, OR I’LL SHOOT!” Which is rather a succinct description of Obama’s entire middle east policy.
For those who don’t take the spiritual connection between Biden and Schultz seriously, I would merely point out that Schultz was played by John Banner. J.B. Get it? John Banner..Joe Biden
Note: If some kind Red Stater wants to attach a few pics, and/or a video clip of the good Sgt. Schultz, it would be much appreciated. I attempted to do so, with no success, alas.
