Don't Sugarcoat It Darrell Issa, Tell Us How You Really Feel

Well, here's something you don't see very often: Katrina Trinko writes at the Corner that "Representative Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, called White House press secretary Jay Carney a 'paid liar' in an interview today" with CNN's Candy Crowley:

Issa, who is involved in the investigation of the IRS’s decision to target tea-party groups, was blunt about his belief that most likely the employees in the Cincinnati IRS offices were acting on orders from Washington, D.C.

“The administration is still — their paid liar, their spokesperson, picture behind,” Issa said on CNN’s State of the Union this morning, where the set has a picture of Carney behind host Candy Crowley, “he’s still making up things about what happen[ed] and calling this local rogue.”

“The reason that Lois Lerner tried to take the Fifth [Amendment] is not because there’s a rogue in Cincinnati,” he added. “It’s because this is a problem that was coordinated. in all likelihood, right out of Washington headquarters.”

Particularly given the location of his interview today -- not to mention his interviewer -- when describing the White House press secreaty as a "paid liar," no word yet if Issa was referring to Jay Carney's current occupation, or his previous employment at Time-Warner-CNN-HBO.
