    I think that’s the reason. The sense that I get from my American friends who are up to speed with who’s who (I am British myself) is that Issa’s behaviour here is pretty much what you might expect; whereas we might hope that Maloney can be shamed into seeing how what she’s doing is directly contrary to everything she usually stands for.
