Darrell-iction of Duty

Washington (CNN) – Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California), the brand-new chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform, defended comments he had previously made that President Obama is “one of the most corrupt presidents of modern times.”

Speaking to CNN’s Chief National Correspondent John King Wednesday, Issa offered his definition of the word “corrupt”:

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:

The annual cultural debate over Christmas has come to Congress.

South Carolina Rep. Henry Brown, Jr. and 18 of his fellow House Republicans [OOPS! It was 17 Rethugs and 1 Democrat] this week introduced Resolution 951, which makes it clear that Christmas should not be watered down for political correctness.
