Hey, narrow, your Mr. Issa has brought investigation after investigation, a new one every week, and has uncovered nothing he didn’t manufacture himself. The problem is that, since Democrats are actually interested in making government work, a lot of them ran for office to govern and improve lives, and they can do it pretty well. You get some horrible people too, of course, and it tends to be in places like Illinois where there’s no competition because the Republican party has no following, so being a Democrat is the only route to power. But with Republicans, you only go into government if you’re either hell-bent about dragging America down, like Ted Cruz and Steve King; or corrupt, either for money (a cush corporate gig after your departure like McDonnell), or for simple power (and a spot on Fox News, like virtually every GOP presidential candidate other than Romney and Huntsman). As for McDonnell — how’s that term limit idea working out in practice?
