Darrell Issa Calls Darrell Issa Reckless in IRS Probe

You know what’s fun? Watching politicians be giant crybabies about an issue, only to turn around and be total hypocrites on that very same issue! Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Satan’s Bunghole) is the latest to do so, this time on the issue of transparency. Remember when Rep. Issa  went on the teevee to talk to CNN’s Candy Crowley about the IRS and to call Obama’s press secretary a lying liar? Prior to going on the show, Rep. Issa released partial transcripts of interviews with IRS employees. In a rare glimpse of some actual journalism, Crowley repeatedly pointed out that they were in fact partial, and that even the “good parts” version didn’t show any definitive skulduggery. In response, Issa said that other parts of the transcript will make clear that the White House is full of evil serpents ready to eat the babies of Tea Party patriots, or some such unsubstantiated nonsense. Crowley asked the obvious question: will you release the entire transcripts, because you know, transparency and shit? Rep. Issa’s forked tongue hissed, “these transcripts will all be made public.” Really? For reals? You will never, ever guess where that vow ended up!  Read more on Darrell Issa Calls Darrell Issa Reckless in IRS Probe…
