Uh-Oh. Hezbollah supporting, Border Patrol hating U.S. Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” is being talked up again as a potential candidate for statewide office in California.
Jihad Darrell, the multi-millionaire who constantly praised then-Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (for having nice little hands and a great sense of humor!) at the height of Intifada violence and right after the Passover massacre, is mentioned in an article in The Hill, which focuses on liberal Dem Rep. Jane Harman’s possible run for California statewide office.
Jihad Darrell, who is tight with terror host state Syria, got a ticket for speeding at the border. He responded with a “Do you know who I am?” redux, but the brave Border Patrol agent gave him the ticket anyway. Issa then tried to deunionize the Border Patrol (there was no DHS then) and is continuing to try to shut down Border Patrol checkpoints and offices at various points in his district. Jihad Darrell pretends he is for tougher immigration laws and enforcement, but the opposite is true.
No surprise, given that the Jihadist Congressman has lied throughout his career–about his spotty military record, about how he stole his business from its founder in a tricky court maneuver, about his criminal past, mysterious arson at his company’s buildings, holding an employee at gunpoint, etc., etc., etc.
If Issa is the best the GOP has to offer in California besides an aging “Conan the Barbarian” movie star, the party is in trouble. Rep. Mary Bono is also mentioned on the GOP side.
Great. Sonny’s last wife and Jihad Darrell, as the country’s largest state’s best Republicans. No wonder the GOP keeps losing there.
We think the best of the bunch is State Senator Tom McClintock, a true conservative. We’d love to see him win his bid for Lt. Governor (as a start). We only wish he lived in Michigan, so we could vote for him.
