Left Side of the Aisle #115 - Part 1

Update #1: IRS "scandal" evaporates

You heard it here first, folks. Remember the IRS scandal? How the IRS improperly singled out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny as part of a political vendetta against conservatives? Seven weeks ago I told you that was a phony so-called "scandal." Six weeks ago I told you that for all the fuss and fuming, the only group to lose its tax-exempt status was a liberal group.

Well, the whole business has now evaporated. For one, it turns out that it wasn't only groups with something like “Tea Party” in their name that got targeted for scrutiny. There were a lot of other flags, including words like “Progressive” and “Occupy” and "Israel" and "open source software" and no, that last one is not a joke.

And for another, it emerges that the entire reason the Treasury inspector general to highlight scrutiny of conservative groups, but not liberal groups, is that the creepy-crawly chair of the House Oversight Committee, Darrell Isajerk, told the inspector general “to narrowly focus on Tea Party organizations.”

The whole "scandal" was a fake, a fraud, a set-up, a lie. And I have no compunction about saying I told you so.
