Darrell Issa has gone so far over the edge in his Ahab-esque quest to take down this administration that even members of his own party have said publicly that he needs to cool it.
But that doesn't make for good television, does it? On the early airing on State of the Union, Elijah Cummings, Ranking Democrat of the Oversight Committee, threw down the gauntlet, daring Issa to come forward with what he has (which Cummings knows exonerates Obama) or be prepared for Cummings to do it. This apparently made Issa very, very angry and he fired off an angry statement. Then, for the re-airing of the show, Candy Crowley did something I haven't seen done on a Sunday show before: read the statement by Issa, thus giving him the last word.
"His [Cummings'] extreme and reckless assertions are a signal that his true motivation is stopping needed Congressional oversight and he has no genuine interest in working, on a bipartisan basis, to expose the full truth. The American public wants to know why targeting occurred and who was involved."
Did your irony meter redline at the laughably self-aggrandizing Issa? He's so cutely hypocritical when he realizes he's up against a wall and no one from either party is taking him seriously any more.
Oh look! There's the bipartisan agreement Issa said he wanted.
