Even Fox News's Bill O'Reilly had a hard time staying awake through the Benghazi hearings.

"Most of the testimony today was numbing, almost impossible to sit through," he said on "The O'Reilly Factor" last night.

Sure, O'Reilly tried to find something to attack Hillary Clinton for. He zeroed in on a question from Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo, who wanted to know "Why has no one been held accountable? How come not a single person lost a single paycheck connected to the fact we had the first ambassador killed since 1979?”


Clinton replied that “It is my position that in the absence of finding dereliction or breach of duty, there could not be immediately action taken.”

O'Reilly worked up his best dudgeon: "There was no action taken. No one in Hillary Clinton's State Department was held responsible for the debacle in Benghazi."

But if that's the best he can do, the day went pretty well for the Clinton camp.
