If we lived in a real (not to say free) country, then we would be reading something like the following exchanges:
Congressman Issa: So, Ms Lerner, how and when exactly did you learn that your department was illegally targeting conservative and pro-life groups.
Lerner: Congressman Issa, on the advice of my attorney, I respectfully invoke my rights under the Fifth Amendment not to incriminate myself.
Issa: Ms Lerner, your statement is ridiculous. First, you obviously surrendered your right to remain silent when you read a prepared statement. When you said, and I quote, "I did nothing wrong," were you then saying that what your department did was legal and ethical?
Issa: Then, just so I'll understand, you actually do think that if you tell this committee the truth you will be incriminating yourself?
Issa: Do you own a dictionary?
Issa: Because according to the dictionary, incriminate means: "to charge with a crime." What is the crime you would be charging yourself with, if you told this committee the truth?
Issa: You are an employee of the Federal Government. Do you honestly think that someone who takes the taxpayer's money as a salary is not responsible to those same taxpayers?
Issa: And do you think it is ethical or even legal for you as a Federal employee to refuse to cooperate with a Congressional committee?
Issa: Ms Lerner, in putting yourself above the law, you have violated both the public's trust and the laws of this land. I have here a warrant for your arrest, and you will have plenty of time to consult a dictionary in the days, weeks, months, and years to come...
Lerner and Issa don't care about what I think,
I guess I'll just sit here and drink
