Issa is a Moron

I'd like to nominate my candidate for biggest douchebag in Congress... Mr. Darrell Issa!

Say hi, Darrell!

Issa is a GOP Rep. from San Diego. At a hearing last week, he suggested that the federal government had already done enough to support New York in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, which he referred to as "a fire" caused by "simply an aircraft" hitting the World Trade Center. Classy.
So today, Jackie Speier, a DFL Rep. from California participated in a mock swearing-in ceremony in Washington. Making her first speech to Congress, Speier spoke out against the Iraq War.
"The process to bring the troops home must begin immediately," she said, as several Republicans loudly booed. Rep. Darrell Issa, a Vista Republican, bolted from his seat and left the floor.
So, let's get this straight. Issa will not tolerate any opposition to this war, which he apparently supports adamently. A war which was first authorized in large part as a response to a terrorist attack which he downplays as "simply" a plane crash. Wow.
Electing Issa is the worst thing San Diego has done since drafting Ryan Leaf.
