this? This is pond scum. This is what Republicans can only aspire to.
And as much as I disrespect Democrats, if I had my way I'd shanghai
every self-identified Republican on the planet earth, stuff them in a
Saturn V rocket and aim them into the heart of a red giant 100 light
years away. And the first one in this one-way ark would be Darrell Issa
And why do I have a problem with Darrell Issa
these days? Well, let's start with the fact that, in his racist hatred
of the Obama administration, he'd made a document dump of 166 pages that
outed certain Libyans by name, a disclosure that only puts their lives
in danger. Go ahead and read Josh Rogin's bombshell of an article
and I'll price Saturn V's while I'm waiting.
You done? Good.
the moment, let's just elide over the fact that Darrell Issa, a
pistol-packing car thief who, with screaming irony, made his $450
million fortune as CEO of a company that made car alarms
is now worse than Wikileaks and Bradley Manning. who at least can say
never put anyone's life in danger with their disclosures. Issa's State
Department document dump that names names in his mad attempt to scuttle
the president's reelection campaign, is now working with or for the very
terrorists who'd taken the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three
others. Despite the sensitive information contained therein, the State
Department never made these cables classified, giving a partisan lunatic
like Isaa leeway to release them as is.
Does this really surprise anyone that this was orchestrated by a party that had outed Valerie Plame
and the 90+ covert agents working under her and wrecking a CIA front
company, all dedicated to assessing the weapons infrastructures of Iraq
and Iran? Does it really surprise anyone this was carried out by the
very same party that had seriously damaged a non-partisan soup kitchen's funding
for the sake of a photo op? Does it really surprise anyone that this is the result of a racist and selfish party that had grounded rescue choppers
right after Hurricane Katrina for, once again, the sake of a photo op or had commandeered an entire Red Cross aid station
in Louisiana for eight hours for a photo op?
Does this really surprise anyone that this scorched-earth strategy was hatched by a party that time and again has shut down the government
with one temper tantrum after another until they finally got what they want
working in cahoots with terrorists, this incredibly scummy disclosure
will at the very least have a chilling effect on Libyans or anyone else
who would even just consider working with the American government.
Republicans foam at the mouth at the very mention of Wikileaks. But now
for the umpteenth time it seems we have met the true enemy and it's the
At the very least, Issa should get
voted out of office over this. Personally, I'd love to see Issa get
impeached for breaching national security and working in tacit collusion
with terrorists. Jerry Tetalman
is running for Issa's seat in California's 49th district. He doesn't
have nearly the war chest that his criminal opponent does so I'll make
you all a deal:
Whatever anyone contributes to
Pottersville's Paypal account between now and the day before election
day, I'll donate exactly half of what I receive to Tetalman's campaign.
We need to get this piece of shit off the Oversight & Government Reform Committee and out of Congress before he endangers more lives.
