Last week, after the White House asserted executive privilege on some Justice Department documents related to the so-called "Fast and Furious" controversy, Republican leaders quickly pushed the argument that it meant the White House was directly involved in the operation. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) even argued that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has secret documents that prove it.
Yesterday, Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, ruined the GOP's fun and made Chambliss look rather foolish -- there's no evidence, he said, connecting the White House to the Fast and Furious operation.
But while Issa was willing to reject one silly meme yesterday, he was also willing to embrace another.
