Off the script

Maybe House Republicans should investigate what they knew and when they knew it.

Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa was forced to roll back Speaker John Boehner's inflammatory statement that the White House's declaration of executive privilege was an admission of a "cover-up" in the Fast and Furious witch hunt.

The House, you may recall, is probing why the Obama administration continued the ill-advised "gun walking" caper started by the Bush administration. Of course, the committee in charge ought to be called the "overlooked" committee because they has have not recognized anything happened before Jan. 20, 2009.

Issa in turn has called this the "most corrupt administration" in history, overlooking Republican presidents named Nixon, Harding and Grant, for starters.

But Issa had to acknowledge there is no evidence the White House had anything to do with Fast and Furious and they are really limiting their investigation to harassing Attorney General Eric Holder.

Don't you think the fact Republican leaders aren't even on the same page when they level politically loaded charges shows how little the "oversight" relates to government and how much it relates to politics.

Fill under "your tax dollars at work. Not."
