Republican Jackass of the Week

Darrell Issa, Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

Here's a guy who hated the current administration so much that he dedicated his political career to fishing for a whole list of scandals that never existed.

Just two weeks ago the final report from the latest Benghazi investigation revealed that absolutely no wrongdoing on the part of the Obama Administration had occurred. There was no conspiracy, no military assets were withheld, no "stand down" order was given, nothing.

And nothing came of the fake IRS scandal, the phony "fast and furious" scandal, or anything else.

With Benghazi alone, he held 20 individual hearings comprising 6 separate investigations.

The total cost to US taxpayers for all his hoaxes?


This from the party that constantly screams about the deficit and "fiscal responsibility."

The good news? Former car thief Darrell Issa has been demoted from being the powerful Chairman of the House Oversight Committee to being just another member of a much less prestigious judiciary subcommittee.

But he gets one last honor here: he's this week's Republican Jackass of the Week.
