thugs in harmony

Did you ever think we would live in a country where a legislator could: a) say this to another legislator, and b) it not be all over the headlines:
If Henry Waxman today wants to go to Iraq and do an investigation, Blackwater will be his support team. His protection team. Do you think he really wants to investigate directly?

That was Congressman Darrel Issa, a Republican (of course), making a veiled threat of violence toward the head of the House Oversight Committee on behalf of a mercenary enterprise run by (of course) extremely well-connected Republicans.

But don't worry, Brian Williams will make sure that tonight you hear all about how there are fewer airline crashes lately.
