Yet Another Partial Transcript From Darrell Issa

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


I’m not feeling too well this morning, so I’m going to take a break. Maybe I’ll be back later depending on how things go.

In the meantime, since I don’t want to leave Richard Cohen at the top of the blog all day, check out Steve Benen here on yet another “partial transcript” from Darrell Issa, who apparently is desperate to drum up some kind of Obamacare scandal but can’t actually find one. So instead he leaked a few pages of testimony from HealthCare.gov’s chief project manager which, as you can guess, left out a few wee details. And which news organization fell for this transparent trick? Did you guess CBS? Congratulations!
