HOH’s One-Minute Recess: He Really Wants to Win

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is trying to bypass the rules of the YouTube town hall challenge by explaining just how you can vote for his video so he can win … win! WIN! Bwahaha.

The YouTube town hall website says it is “an online platform for members of Congress to debate and discuss the most important issues of the day.”

“Visitors can select an issue, watch two short videos expressing competing ideas and then support the one they agree with most,” YouTube explains.

The video-sharing site promises not reveal the lawmaker’s party affiliation until after the viewer has voted on the video in order to keep the focus on ideas, not parties.

Wait right there, YouTube! What is this nonsense about ideas standing on their own merit?!

Issa and his Oversight Productions video team put together an (actually enjoyable) step-by-step guide to ensure Issa supporters could find the chairman’s video and vote for it.

In no uncertain terms the video demonstrates that all the Republican clips are on the RIGHT and all Democratic clips are on the LEFT (wink, wink).

“We made a click-by-click guide to finding Darrell’s video, so fire up a new browser and let’s go!” the narrator says.
