What is extraordinary here is that Issa didn’t have Federal Marshalls rip his jacket and shirt off, tie him face down on the table, stuff a copy of the subpoena in his mouth, give him 30 lashes with a bull whip, then tell him there would a whipping every day at 9:00 AM until he fully complied or his flesh had been stripped off and his bones were polished clean.

[Personally I think Joe’s response would have been way too kind. Give me a bucket, a rat, and a blow torch. Some assembly required. If you don’t know how it works, don’t worry about it, it prevents you from knowing how mean, evil, and sadistic my mind can be towards those who willingly endanger my friends and family in the name of destroying my rights.*
Don’t worry Joe, it’s not cruel or unusual. At the time the Bill of Rights was written lashing was still a standard punishment on the high seas. In fact so was keelhauling which I think would also be a fantastic venture for Mr. Holder. –B]
*In my defense, I would feel bad for the rat.
