*Darrell Issa dials Minnesota GOP from conference room
*  *RINGS*
DARRELL ISSA:  Um, guys, what's happening to my fundraiser.  Guys?  GUYS?!
Apparently Darrell Issa does care after all.

Well, only if say there's a looming government shutdown debate that postpones one of his fundraisers:

With the House likely to stay in session over the weekend to deal with a potentially climactic vote to keep the lights on in Washington, the event has been postponed.

Issa, the face of the House Republicans on Benghazi and other administration controversies, was to have been the keynote speaker at the event at the Lafayette Club in Minnetonka Beach.

The $100-$1,000 event also featured “special guest” U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen, R-Minn., and GOP candidates for the U.S. Senate, governor, and Hennepin County Sheriff, according to an invitation obtained by the Star Tribune.

As I reported recently in my recent diary, Congressman Issa is apparently high in demand as a lean, mean, fundraising machine for the GOP.

However, when push comes to shove, it seems a fundraiser for him will have to be postponed to deal with the government shutdown in the which was caused by Issa and many others in the GOP in the first place.

So in other words, Issa is dealing with a crisis he started, much like the Iraq War that was started by him and others in the GOP.

However, Issa may not be entirely serious.  After all, his weekly Friday Kitty Tweets are still going on.

Can you understand this Issa Man?  Really?

Should Darrell Issa deal with the looming government shutdown situation or do a fundraiser?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
