Presumably The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza told Darrell Issa that he was going to do an article about him, with or without him… or at least implied as much. Issa would have been better off going the “without” route. In an article ironically titled “Don’t Look Back“, writer Ryan Lizza does nothing but look back. Now that Issa is the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Democrats and their interchangeable partners in the media have a sudden interest in looking back. Issa will likely investigate everything from WikiLeaks to Afghan corruption to Fannie Mae. Lizza writes a meandering, undisciplined 7,829 word article predominantly on Issa’s past. He concedes Issa’s constituents have no real interest in it. “In 2000, two years after losing the Senate primary campaign, Issa easily won a congressional seat in a conservative district near San Diego, where voters seemed unconcerned about the then two-decade-old tales from his youth.” I won’t rehash the decades old tales here, because that would be to do Lizza’s bidding.
