May 12, 2013- Darrell Issa (R-CA) made a fool of himself on “Meet the Press” Sunday as he tried to defend his Benghazi conspiracy. David Gregory (R-TV) pushed back hard, even bringing up the GOP’s defunding of security.
Issa even accused General David Petraeus of lying for the administration. As soon as Gregory would call Issa on one thing, he’d say he was investigating something else. Issa accused Tom Pickering of refusing to testify when in fact, Issa had not invited him to speak and Pickering was told that the Republican majority did not want him there. Issa ended up backtracking on that one, too, and it was super awkward when it came out that Issa never asked for him to appear.
Turns out, Issa was just making inaccurate, unfounded accusations so as falsely infuse his Benghazi hearings with the aura of nefarious dark secrets, because that is what Issa does for a living.
The worst news for Issa was that Gregory refused to be his usual GOP shill, which is an alarming indication that Republicans have pushed their Benghazi conspiracy one wingnut too far.
February 8, 2013- Darth Issa: Lord Vader, the U.S. Postal Service is consolidating into five days. Saturday delivery is going to be no more.
Darth Vader: Good, good. Our plan is going according to schedule. The Emperor will be pleased.
Note: Darrell Issa does cry and it comes in at the 1:20 mark. He pulled a John Boehner in the 2003 California Gubernatorial Race!)
It seems to me not everyone on Daily Kos is in sync with the whole Saturday mail delivery ending. On the one hand, the U.S. Postal Service can't compete with other services such as DHL, Federal Express or UPS. On the other hand, there are people working at the postal service who will either lose part of their pay or their jobs all together.
Who do we blame for this?
