Lizard People

Is Darrell Issa a Lizard?

Former Oversight Committee chairman and original chicken fucker Darrell Issa (R-CA) is very disappointed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be charged for not breaking any laws and, to that end, he believes we need another government shutdown.

Calling for a government shutdown for no substantiated reason is obviously ridiculous, but what Issa said next leaves me wondering if he is indeed a lizard.

In an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Issa blasted FBI Director James Comey’s decision as “simply choosing to ignore a law.”

“We should be willing to shut down the government if the president won’t limit his power,” he said, noting that his party had repeatedly been “willing to shut down the government over ending Obamacare and these other things.” Those things, according to Issa, are “small points compared to the actual balance of our republic.”

Obamacare and the debt ceiling are "small points?"

Personally I'd say trying to repeal Obamacare and kicking tens of millions of people off their healthcare is infinitely more consequential, but for Darrell Issa those issues are small potatoes compared to... Hillary Clinton not being indicted for crimes that never occurred.

That's what we're talking about here. For Darrell Issa, shutting the government down over nothing is more important than the lives of millions of people and the global economy.

Exactly how deranged is Darrell Issa? How deranged is the GOP?

Conservatism is a mental illness.

    It all makes sense if you think of it as performance art.

    • If only this was just a theater and not the real world, with real world consequences…Oh wait, there aren’t any real world consequences for rich people like Issa, Drumpf, Ryan, etc, etc.

    Issa said the leadership would agree to a shutdown only if there was a clear example, like this, where “we cannot enforce criminal charges against a criminal… because the people responsible are simply choosing to ignore a law.”

    While he said it is “not about Hillary Clinton,” he suggested that because “we can’t get to the courts,” in this case and others, “only have one piece of power, and that’s an imperial president.” He suggested that Congress should expand the power of independent counsels because, “otherwise Lois Lerner gets a free pass, Eric Holder gets a free pass, and yes, Hillary Clinton gets a free pass.”

    Darrell Issa is throwing a massive wobbly because people who have not committed criminal offenses have not been charged with (and, presumably, convicted of and punished for) criminal offenses.

    I dunno. Very few lizards are arsonists, after all.

    Why isn’t a slime like Darrell Issa in a maximum security federal prison getting horribly abused by his fellow inmates?

    Answer: very deranged. And very corrupt. They do understand that the coffers of the United States are not there simply for them to use to campaign against Hilary Clinton. I don’t believe that is a proper function of the Senate or House. But maybe I missed that part of the Constitution.
