Issa, the Viper Super Hero, Fighting Internet Restrictions

July 23, 2012
vipertwitter.jpgRep. Darrell Issa is not one to mess around, especially when it comes to Internet regulation. And in case you didn't believe it, he now has an, um, intimidating (?) Twitter avatar to prove it.

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee changed his avatar in support of the launch of the Internet Defense League. The new image depicts Issa as a super hero responding to a cat-like bat signal, which is part of the IDL's campaign -- cats, the Internet, get it?

But, to the more important point -- yes, that is a viper on cartoon super hero Issa's shirt. You may recall that the California Republican made his fortune with the Viper car alarm company. (The man even offered his voice for the car alarm.) Now, he's calling upon his "Viper armed" experience to oppose Internet restrictions. Naturally.
