Colbert on Operation Fast & Furious
Continuing from the last post on this, Stephen Colbert mocked the Republicans for thinking this was a deliberate scheme by the Administration to create fear over gun sales in the US to thereby ban guns altogether. This is actually what drug-crazed Limbaugh said and has been echoed by Issa himself. Colbert accurately reported though that the program started in 2006 under the previous Administration, something not heard from the conservative echo chamber. And all of this "to gin up support for the draconian gun measures that Obama had never introduced." He goes on to note that it's likely "the fevered ramblings of a syphilitic brain." It's ironic that Issa and his cronies found Holder in contempt when most of the rest of us find Congress in contempt.
