IRS may have targeted conservatives more broadly. “…at a minimum could spread skepticism about the fairness of a powerful agency that should be above reproach and at worst could point to a secret political vendetta within the government against conservatives.” Meanwhile, IRS Ignores Senate Deadline to Answer Questions About Scandal. Worst case is looking like the winner.

Not satire: WaPo’s surreal report on Holder’s off-the-record “press freedom” meeting. “Eric Holder pledged to take ‘concrete steps’ to address the actions of Eric Holder — up to and (possibly) including backing legislative action that would curtail Eric Holder’s ability to abuse Eric Holder’s power.” Well, ignoring the fact there supposed already is such a thing (we think it’s called the “First Amendment”) any new legislative action to curtail Eric Holder’s ability to abuse Eric Holder’s power would have to be enforced by Eric Holder, wouldn’t it? If he were interested in doing that, they wouldn’t needed to have had this “off the record” meeting to begin with. Well, let’s forget all this and just spin around in circles until we get dizzy, at which time it will make sense. That must be what Eric Holder does.

Chair of Louisiana state Dem party runs away from local television reporters who ask about her declaration that opponents of Obamacare are driven by racism. Play the race card and then run away.

Professor: What America really needs now is a violent civil war to kill off the NRA. A professor of journalism, no less. Support peace and non-violence or WE’LL KILL YOU! Well, in his case, he wants the US military to kill you.

Dem congressman: The Keystone pipeline is bad because rocks sink. Yes, and by the way, it absolutely won’t create any jobs because someone at Cornell said so. We think you’ll find it persuasive… but not in the ways he intended.

Meet the journalist dork who bugged Mitch McConnell’s office. His name is Curtis Morrison and he’s the perfect storm of liberal dysfunction. He’s 44 years old with no job and no career. He lost his apartment and lived in his car back in Kentucky. Now he’s relocating to California to attend law school and still thinks skulking around someone’s office to record a private conversation was the right thing to do.

Econ Moron Ron Fournier: Middle Class Falls, Wall Street Rises … and Washington Dithers. Fresh out of ideas and excuses econ moron Ron Fournier puts class war-fare back on the menu. As usual he’s blathering about the usual Wall Street verses Main Street nonsense. What this fellow doesn’t know, or won’t admit, is that Wall Street (to a certain, but rather significant extent) is Main Street. Wall Street is where most of our retirements live. They win, we win -sometimes. They lose . . . well good luck trying to live off the social security that won’t exist by the time that we need it. But that doesn’t serve this fellows narrative so he ignores it. Just like he ignores the fact that the real threat to the middle class has come from a over reaching government that prints money out of nowhere to buy votes, pay off cronies (many of them the very Wall Street types Fournier takes such a dim view of) and destroy our savings/earnings with the resultant inflation that they insist does not exist but plagues each and every trip we make to the grocery store.

Just in case you were thinking about watching the new Will Smith movie… be forewarned: After Earth is a Scientology propaganda flick. You might come out of the theatre with an urge to spout platitudes and a fetish for Tom Cruise posters.

Why did Apple hire Lisa Jackson? The more red tape these clowns create, the more bribes and kickbacks to corrupt underlings are needed to get anything done. This is quintessential Obama Chicago-style gubbermint.

Michael Eric Dyson: Holder is the “Moses” of our time. Meanwhile, the few people actually watching this drivel on MSNBC (who else?) are likely asking themselves, “Who the f— is Moses?”

Did you know that ObamaCare features a never-ending, $2,000,000,000-a-year slush fund? “It’s totally crazy to give the executive branch $2 billion a year ad infinitum to spend as they wish.” Hope and change, Chicago-style, always requires a slush fund.

Liberals openly embrace their eugenics roots. The ACLU is suing the state of Arizona to overturn a law against sex-based and race-based abortions. Being good liberals, they like the idea of people aborting unwanted female and dark-skinned babies!

Officials instructed Benghazi hospital to list Amb. Stevens as “John Doe.” “The reason for the pseudonym, says the official, was to avoid drawing undue attention to the importance of the victim as Americans rushed to figure out how to recover Stevens’ body and return it to the U.S.” Drawing undue attention from whom? Al Qaeda already knew they killed him. Unless the “officials” were worried about the media and the voters finding out before they had their stories straight… [Video at the link.]

Former IRS Commissioner visited WH more than twice as often as Eric Holder. “As IRS commissioner, he reported to Tim Geithner at Treasury, not anyone in the West Wing. Shulman, in fact, had more than three times as many visits to the White House as his nominal boss.” Well, Shulman can only remember going there to look for Easter eggs – the ones he found had “Do me a favor and screw the Tea Party, signed Barry” written inside.

College kids sign card thanking IRS for targeting conservatives: As obvious liberal arts majors it seems probable that none of these guys are going to be that helpful when it comes to getting the trains to run on time. All the same even if they were being loaded onto some of those trains we doubt they would (even then) realize just how a threat to freedom anywhere is a threat to freedom everywhere.

Obama: “I don’t have much patience for people who deny climate change.” …or Tea Partiers who try to exercise their legal rights or people who desperately call for help from foreign consulates while under attack or journalists who attempt to actually cover his admnistration or people who point out the obvious flaws in his health care plan that he didn’t write and nobody read or people who don’t vote Democrat or… well, the list of people he does have patience for is a much easier one to make.

MEDIA SNUB: News outlets balk at AG’s off-record talks on snooping. AP, NYT and HuffPo said “Hell no, we won’t go!” But Politico said, “How high would you like us to jump?” Seriously, why would anyone trust this man any further than they could throw him… unless it was under a bus?
