    Ahhh yes, umbrellagate.

    Sometimes I wonder if conservatives have any memories prior to 2008-ish.

    Lol, must be that koolaid "some people" probably talk about.

    Umbrellagate is yesterday's rage. Today it's something about Obama being black.

    I guess the tactic is to bring up the umbrella squirrel to get folks to look away.

    Especially since there are new scandals popping up.

    I'm thinkin' we're just seein' the tip of the scandal iceberg.

    Scandalous indeed.

    Republicans Demanded an Investigation into AP Leaks; Now They’re Blaming Obama

    At what point does pointing out squirrels make you the squirrel?

    Sorry, I don't want to try explain the spin of a liberal thought piece.

    I got through the first paragraph and its at best a stretch, unless the NY Times and Diane Feinstein are closet Republicans.

    So I stopped.

    Here's a conservative thought piece... actually a story... about how Chicago style politics works on the national stage.

    Want to get political? Welcome to the IRS, the FBI, OSHA, and the ATF.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/articl...n-kay-melchior

    Keep in mind that with all of these federal agencies working to probe these citizens, the boss over the agencies, even after calling them into question from behind his podium on the campaign trail... doesn't know anything about it.

    Re: IRS vs. The Tea Party

    You gotta love fox news.

    They were just playing a clip of Jay Carney talking about the IG's report on the IRS that they found out about last April. And literally, right as Carney was going to say "Congress was informed of this, and Darell Issa...."....nope, right when they mention Issa's name they cut away and interview Michelle Malkin....followed by 2-3 minutes of eeebil Obama talk.

    Which I mean, I guess she's a helluva lot prettier and shinier than Jay Carney....ok.

    They cut the lying blowbag of ??? Dang!!!

    Its a conspiracy to hide Issa from from the pooblic.

    That he's interviewed on FOX a lot is merely accidental.

    I like how you turn an Obama "I dunno nuttin'" screw-up into a FOX conspiracy.

    Media Matters is hiring.

    That's what I get for not waiting on the edge of my chair for Jay Carney's next sentence.

    ^^^ What's the difference between Jay Carney's next sentence and the next Obama scandal?

    About two minutes.

    Edit: See post #78 for today's scandal... bigger 'n the AP scandal.

    Unlike yesterday's scandal, which was merely Watergate + Iran contra, today's scandal is Watergate TIMES Iran Contra.

    Tomorrow infinity will introduced as a new "variable"

    Rand Paul claims revealing memo exists in IRS scandal

    While the Internal Revenue Service maintains it was not focusing on conservative groups out of political bias, Sen. Rand Paul claimed Sunday there was a "written policy" floating around the agency that said IRS officials were "targeting people who were opposed to the president."

    "And when that comes forward, we need to know who wrote the policy and who approved the policy," the Republican senator from Kentucky said on CNN's "State of the Union."

    Pressed for more precise details about the memo he was referring to, Paul said he hasn't seen such a policy statement but has heard about it.

    "Well, we keep hearing the reports and we have several specifically worded items saying who was being targeted. In fact, one of the bullet points says those who are critical of the president. So I don't know if that comes from a policy, but that's what's being reported in the press and reported orally," he told CNN's chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. "I haven't seen a policy statement, but I think we need to see that."
    Got that? There's a memo because I've heard it being reported orally. I haven't seen anything, but people who know things tell me as much.

    Maybe he should call Jon Karl. I hear he has reliable sources of information.
