You mean his keen investigational strategy of "Well, just look at him. You know he's guilty of something," didn't pay off?

"Aye, aye! It was that accursed white whale that razeed me; made a poor pegging lubber of me for ever and a day!" Then tossing both arms, with measureless imprecations he shouted out: "Aye, aye! and I'll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give him up. And this is what ye have shipped for, men! to chase that white whale on both sides of land, and over all sides of earth, till he spouts black blood and rolls fin out."

Bidden sitting in Issa's office chair as Issa enters his office.

Bidden: Take a seat Darrell we need to talk.
Issa: What's going on here? Where's my staff?
Issa: Tries to leave but by now there's a SS guy in the doorway.
Bidden to SS guy: Close the Door and wait for me.
Bidden: Darrell sit down and shut up.
Bidden: Drop your crap investigations or we go full out with an SEC investigation on Mitt.
Issa: Sputter cough. You think that's going to (Bidden cuts him off)
Bidden: Oh and by the way we have receipts from a rent boy company with your name on them just in case.
Bidden Gets up to leave stops and looks Issa square in the eye: I was never here and this conversation never took place.

/What the hell. It's 103 degree's I'm hot and that was mildly fun to write.
//Republicans can kiss my white hairy ass.

Isn't this the guy who started the Gray Davis recall election in California, then cried in public when conceding that he wasn't going to be the one to succeed Davis?

Or is my memory hazy?

MyRandomName: How did ISSA lose? Successful contempt vote and proceeding to civil trial to have a judge determine if the executive order is valid, as is always done. What has ISSA lost?

His chance to make this be a talking point. No one cares. We're more worried about Romney's tax returns. His troll is a threadjack that has been deleted by the mods.

Does the GOP know that TWO can play at this game.

Obama can declassify and release all kinds of naughty things done by GWB in the run-up to and during the Iraq War. Still want to go fishing?

It seems that Republicans are always trying to impeach or investigate when a Democrat is in office. Clinton with Lewinsky (which admittidly he did lie but it was a BJ). Now this. Granted the Fast and Furious thing was stupid and whoever green lighted the idea needs a kick in the nuts, but how is getting pissy over losing doing any good.

The only Democrat investigation I cna think of would be Watergate which was actually a big deal.

They ought to reopen that investigation of arson for insurance fraud that Issa was suspected of in 1982. No telling what modern forensics plus federal subpoena power might uncover there.Link

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has set his sights on other members of President Barack Obama's cabinet - sending all of them a letter asking whether government resources were used when they spoke in front of pro-Obama "super PACs." One problem: according to recent reports, none of them have made any such appearances. In fact, the pro-Obama "super PAC" known as Priorities USA Action has only had a single member of the Obama administration - senior adviser David Plouffe - appear at an event.

Laser-focused on Jobs, these Republicans.
