Am I tripping here? Darrell Issa, the Congressmen convicted of car theft and weapons charges??

"the richest member of the house, with a net worth of $300 million, Issa spent $1.7 million of his own money to bankroll the successful recall California Governor Gray Davis."

how did he do it?

The great Mike Malloy levels this clown exposing him for who he really is:

This is truly embarrassing and so disheartening. What possesses you, Brian, to give a thug like this a platform?

I come to WNYC to be edified, not insulted.

As usual, a Republican provides NO evidence to support his view. Paul Krugman's opinions are data-based - - read his blog.
The GOP is intellectually bankrupt; the political centerists should allow the Dems to try their program. Maybe that will happen now that moderates are getting wise to the tea party.

He's a snake, and he doesn't know anything about baseball. "Sliding into first"?

Perhaps the greatest irony of SOPA & PIPA is that they probably would not have been very effective against piracy. They seemed to be nearly all cost and no benefit.

Did the Congressman just say that the founding fathers were "apolitical"?

Could Mr. Issa's committee please investigate the car alarms that wake me up in the middle of the night.

Are you going to ask Issa about rumors about his past as a car thief and arsonist? I'm guessing not.
