House Speaker-to-be Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has realized it maybe wasn’t such a good idea to brag on national TV that the Benghazi committee was put together to bring down Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers. Now he’s gone back on Fox News — this time to say that his previous declaration on the channel wasn’t true at all.

At the desk sits a harassed employee explaining that he simply has no cars of any kind to rent. Nothing. Why? There aren't enough employees on hand to vacuum, wash, fuel and process the cars.

Another snapshot. A couple has been driving for several hours and requires a bathroom stop. They pull into a Burger King. The doors are locked. The only service is at the drive-thru. Why? Lack of employees.
