Full tilt boogie, man:

Follow up with Alex Jones, who seems just a little tinfoil hat, offering some more Bush administration allegations:

Fine, bring on he special prosecutor. The truth will out.

    it is great that we have been the beneficiary of Issa’s frustration over buying the California governorship for Arnold.  too bad we cannot find a place for Norm Coleman.  he was a crusader who probably has some angst to purge, too.

    Just keep this going until next year, maybe time the huge bombshell to go off in mid-October 2012.

    I am not surprised something like this or the ‘Green’ power subsidies came through.  When Mr. Obama was running on an honesty plank, I wondered how the hell could anyone trust a Chicago Politician on that item.  But the I remembered, this administration has been all about image.

    It does happen that Cabinet officers or others misremember details of things when they testify to Congress, like they were up late the night before and dozed through the briefing.  It happens.

    BUT then they get back to their office and the aides point out the errors, and they send the Committee a letter the next day “clarifying” the testimony.  Holder didn’t do this, although his people certainly told him immediately IF he really didn’t read the briefings.  He’s lying through his teeth just like he did over the Marc Rich pardon.

    It may be early for a special prosecutor, though.  This should work the same for both parties in power, and there should be some evidence of an actual crime beyond supposition and accusation before calling for the SP.  If Justice continues its practice of hyper-redaction and stonewalling, there may be no choice, or if further evidence turns up as it likely will.  But we should exercise restraint in calling for SP investigations, lest every Administration be tied up with multiple such probes handcuffing various departments.

    Alex Jones is a complete nutter.  He has no credibility at all, having made a long and continuing list of false statements, allegations, and predictions.

    Saying Alex Jones is a little tinfoil hat is like saying Christina Hendricks is a little top-heavy.

    Don’t you know Alex Jones is a freak?  Better just to post the Issa clip, and leave it as that.

    Smitty likes to flirt with the Dark Side.  After single-handedly defeating the Afghan Navy with only his bare hands, a roll of duct tape, a Swiss Army knife, and a flash drive containing the hair metal hits of the ’80s, it is all that seems to excite him.

    Besides the Ben Bernanke Punching Dummy, of course.

    Last night Mancow had Jones on his radio show, and even a loon like Mancow knew Jones is batshit and kept feeding him rope….

    I never thought I’d ever say this, but Alex Jones is dead on correct. I remember somebody mentioning something about 2nd Amendment restrictions due to problems at the Mexican border and it was about 2 1/2 years ago or thereabouts, though I can’t remember whether it was Holder who said it. He was definitely a part of that conversation, at least. Also, Issa is lukewarm at best on going after this, so I think Jones is right on that score as well. It seems to be all a political power play with him, but I heard him say he wasn’t going to go down the road of looking into allegations of attempts to restrict gun ownership or otherwise subvert the 2nd Amendment. My question is, why the fuck not look into it? It fits with the agenda of Obama, the Left, and for that matter law-enforcement, including but not limited to the federal level. I’ve been disappointed in Issa for a long time. I realize the man’s got a lot on his plate, but there’s still a lot that he’s letting just pass by the wayside.

    Alex Jones is absolutely right. What was started under GWB as “Operation Wide Receiver” is now full blown into “Fast & Furious”…..
