Darrell Issa Takes His Benghazi Ball and Goes Home

Former House Oversight Commitee Chairman and serial chicken fucker Darrell Issa (R-CA) apparently forgot that he is no longer running the Benghazi shitshow and was placed in time-out by Select Bullshit Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy.

Issa barged into a private interview with former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal but was hastily kicked out.

Issa marched into the closed-door deposition and remained inside for about a minute before he was escorted out by the panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).

The pair briefly exchanged hushed words in a nearby hallway before Issa stormed off, throwing an empty soda can into a nearby trash bin.

It sounds like something out of a scripted political drama, but here's the Vine (from NBCNews producer Frank Thorp) that proves it:

That's chairman Trey Gowdy on the left who appears to regret the fact that he cannot accommodate Issa's voyeuristic obsession.

Darrell Issa is a very, very bitter man who is clearly still upset that he was kicked out of the loop when House Republican leadership created the Select Solyndra IRS Committee to Investigate the Benghazi ACORN Birth Certificate Email Account.

    Ladies and gentleman, our lawmakers at work. This is really just pathetic.

    And apparently Issa doesn’t recycle. Glad they included that. It was a key fact.

    It sounds like something out of a scripted political drama …

    To me, it’s more like something out of a comedy. Darrell Issa stomping off while Trey Gowdy flaps his arms ineffectually is just plain funny.

      “Trey Gowdy flaps his arms ineffectually”
      Sooo, Gowdy is playing the role of Issa’s poor little chicken?

        Okay, first, ick.

        Second, ick.

        And third, ick.

        I forgot to buy brain bleach yesterday when I was out. Luckily, I stocked up on wine.

    C’Mon, Trey! How can I get to be famous and be President if I can’t keep fucking this chicken?
