      Issa did go on to get a G.E.D. and earn a B.A. from Siena Heights College (now University) in Michigan.

      I suppose I should tell my Issa story. Issa, along with a few staffers, and I were on the same flight on one of those 50-seat minijets. (At 51 seats the FAA would require a second flight attendant.) Since there is no overhead space on those planes, we had to gate-check our roller bags, and while we were all waiting around after we landed to get them someone came came up to him and said, "Congressman, I'm Nick Gillespie from Reason magazine (a Libertarian rag.) I'm a big fan."

      Issa responded by saying how much he enjoyed his work, blah, blah, blah. Repulsed as I was by this mutual tongue-bath, the thought running through my mind was, "Wow! Two guys I've seen on Bill Maher on the same flight!"
