One of my pet peeves with current English usage is the treatment of disinterested and uninterested as synonyms. We wish the Justice Department were interested in this. It were a disinterested investigator of this. Instead, it's uninterested in the investigation. We can no more expect Mr. Holder to investigate this White House than we could have expected John Mitchell to investigate the Nixon White House. Here's -- we know six things, Chris. We know first the targeting occurred. Therefore, second, we know that this is worse than article two of the Nixon impeachment count, which said Nixon endeavored to use the IRS. The IRS back then resisted. Third, we know that this became public in an act of deceit when Lois Lerner planted a question with a friend in an audience to try and get this out on her own terms. Fourth, we know that she has taken the Fifth Amendment because she has a right to do this when she has a reasonable suspicion that there might be criminal activity involved. Fifth, we know that from the timeline you put up today, that there has been 13 months of stonewalling on this. And sixth, now we know that not only her hard drive, but six other people intimately involved in this suddenly crashed in an amazing miraculous coincidence. Religions have been founded on less, ten days after the investigation started. That's why we need a special prosecutor.
This coming our way via Gerard Vanderleun who links to comments over at Doug Ross' place where a discussion on the odds of 7 IRS employees losing their hard drives at or about the same time has broken out.
Suffice it to say, the odds are such that you'd have better luck winning a lottery which ought to be alarming but since a Democrat is running the show, this is all largely getting a pass.
Can you imagine where we'd be today if a Republican was running the country and the IRS had targeted leftist organizations?
The buzz would be deafening. Impeachment hearings would already be underway.
But Obama is instead skating through this (and many other) scandals.
Welcome to a country that has been fundamentally transformed.
Obamerica. Land of the soon less than free and home of the absolutely corrupt.
