And here’s the perfect model of Tea Party imbecile – Darrell Issa. Now the FBI is stonewalling him about its investigation into the IRS who – sorry, Darryl – was using algorithms that pulled up the names of as many progressive groups as conservative.
Sooner or later Mr. Issa is going to have to start working on a budget, isn’t he? Or is he the Congressman designated to only investigate Democratic administrations?
He apparently wasn’t worried at all over Cheney’s office divulging the name and job of an undercover CIA agent, or the lies his office told Congress to get them to approve a declaration of war against a dictator whose only intelligent act was to despise, and be despised by, al Qaida.
No weapons of mass destruction, no connections with Iran (Iraq’s arch enemy) or al Qaida operatives, and yet Cheney and Bush picked him to attack, because they feared they’d have no chance to find bin Laden and would look like the arm-chair “soldiers” that they really were.
