Ohhh, That Smarts

In his ongoing attempt to smear the Obama Administration, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and honors graduate of the Inspector Clouseau Detective School Darrell "Grand Theft Auto" Issa frequently shoots himself in his family jewels.  Latest example:  Issa's committee has been trying to have IRS official Lois Lerner prosecuted for contempt of Congress concerning the screwed up attempts by the IRS to block clearly political groups from claiming tax-exempt status.  Issa & Co. were aggravated when the U.S. Attorney's office had yet to prosecute the case, and wondered why. As it turns out -- hilariously -- Inspector Clouseau Issa has been foiled by a legal opinion rendered by (wait for it) the Reagan Administration.   The opinion stated that it was within the U.S. Attorney's discretion whether to prosecute, and not automatic just because Congress issued the order.

Pure comedy gold.
