Darth Issa:  Lord Vader, President Obama can't win this time.
Darth Vader:  No he can't.  The Sith will see to it that he doesn't get anything passed in Congress.
Darth Issa:  He will join us...
Darth Vader:  ...Or die.
People keep talking about Scott Brown issuing Twitter tweets that are ridiculous.

However, I'd rather be using my Twitter account for making tweets that are ridiculous than what Rep. Darrell Issa says.  Seriously, if you're using Twitter for more of the same talking points, is there REALLY a point?

How about something known as attention grabbers?  Does Darth Issa understand this?

Of course he doesn't!  And that's good, because Issa's talking points via Twitter can be used against him in the 2014 or 2016 re-election campaigns.

So here's some lovely old Twitter Tweets from Darrell Issa to cheer us up on a lovely say in California.  And it is nice outside, at least in Berkeley as I'm at the Au Coquelet Cafe doing work while I do blogging here.

Maybe Henry Waxman should do some Twitter tweets:

So oil purchases may have violated Iran sanctions.  What about the business and production of oil during President Bush's administration?  Investigating that Mr. Issa?

Of course not!

1.2 million to play video games is significantly less than Issa's own votes to increase the deficit for the years of the Iraq War.  God, what a statement!

You gotta love Issa too with his ability to always try to get power no matter what:

OOps!  There Darrell Issa goes again with the retweets!   Look Issa, your own House Speaker's reputation is going down real fast.  It's a wonder those in Ohio's 8th Congressional District are still giving him campaign contributions.

Nothing awkward about Nancy Pelosi's blog being called "The Gavel."  Better than being a fiscal conservative hawk who really isn't fiscally conservative but is a fiscal con man.

Mr. Issa, we don't CARE how many years of exhaustive study is being done on the Keystone Pipeline project.  We don't WANT it!  

Now go fight against the San Onofre nuclear power plant like your Democratic challenger Jerry Tetalman did in the 2012 race:

Wait, here's Bill Medley doing the Tweeting now in referencing Darrell Issa:

How about when are we going to hear an apology from Darrell Issa for his Iraq War votes?  Nope?  Oh dang it!

Maybe Henry Waxman is able to out-Tweet Darrell Issa so he can shut up.

Ok.  Time to get on the DCCC's asses.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
