Remy is a great satirist. He’s got a bunch of other songs too. But I particularly liked this new one.
Of course being a good liberal Stewart lets them off a bit at the end. He doesn’t want to come off as some anti-government nutbar. Still, a good report.
This stinks stinks stinks and should be pursued with tenacity on the Hill and elsewhere. All the IT people commenting on the Lerner articles across the Web say they can find all sorts of stuff which we are being told is lost. Perhaps it’s time for an opensourced investigation. Let the people at the data and let them see what they can find.
Ms. Lerner’s hard drive has been “recycled.” The emails are gone forever. So are the emails of 6 other employees at the IRS including a former Chief of Staff.
How does this administration keep getting away with this sort of stuff?
There seems to be a belief among some true believers on the Left that the executive branch is pretty much sewn up for the foreseeable future. Ms. Clinton will waltz in on the heels Mr. Obama and take over the expansion of the state, the expansion of the “progressive” state, in 3 years time. Though Congress my not be owned by the Dems, the White House the progressives are positive will be for a long time, and so the tools of the executive branch should be employed in a partisan and purely political way.
At what point do we just say – no, you may not do this. This is a gross violation of everything this country is supposed to stand for. Are we supposed to live in a world where there is 0 risk? Where everything is watched at every moment? That sounds like hell to me.
You read that correctly.
Many liberal groups are joining with IRS targeted conservative groups to fight the effort from the Obama administration to chill political work and speech. What is bad for the conservative goose is often bad for the liberal gander. Even still some believe that there has been significant pressure put on these liberal groups not to speak out. The ACLU however broke ranks and other traditionally lefty groups have followed. It’s really an existential issue for them. Obama isn’t going to be in office forever.
