Darrell Issa, drunk from the "kool-aid"

I heard California Congressman Darrell Issa's comments on Blackwater while driving home last night.

Simply insane!

While holding the infamous Move On ad, Rep. Issa stated,
"I think it's been made incredibly clear by ... the Democrat side that this is not about Blackwater," Issa said in his opening statement. "What we're hearing today is in fact a repeat of the attack on Gen. Petraeus's patriotism. ... What they couldn't do to our men and women in uniform, they'll simply switch targets."

$550 a day, minimum to serve as a Blackwater mercenary. In 5 days, they make as much as some enlisted soldiers make in a month, without the restrictions of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice.

During a strange line of questioning by Issa, he had Blackwater exec Erik Prince disclose his strong GOP and Whitehouse ties. He disclosed that his sister was the chair of the Michigan Republican Party and that he had given over $200,000 to Republicans in the past decade.

Issa statement and line of questioning continue the GOP method of distracting Americans from the real issues at hand.

Isaa comparing Congressional oversight over Blackwaters actions in Iraq to Move On's Ad's is absurd.

Congressional oversight...where was Norm Coleman on this one?
