Yeah, there's a surprise

Since the Department of Just Us declared that Lois Lerner's war against her boss's ideological foes represented no wrong doing, I profess myself to be not in the least shocked by the news that the IRS is continuing to harass conservative organizations.

Update: On the upside, the House has filed articles of impeachment against John Koskinen, IRS Commissioner. As Ace points out, this move will probably fail in the Senate, where Democrats can be counted on to form a shield ring around one of their own, no matter how outrageous his contempt for the law. Still, I believe it's worth the attempt. Obama, of course, is never going to be impeached; however, there's no reason the GOP can't go against at least some of his more "ethically-challenged" minions. Make the targets squirm, and make the Democrats publicly defend them.

They went through the motions of a public inquiry as if it was some kind of religious ritual.

Sir Humphrey: Bernard, in round numbers, how many leak enqueries have you heard of that found the leaker?

Bernard Wooley: In round numbers, zero.

The fix was in from the start. The fix is in for Hillary too. Certainly in once she becomes the Regressive Party'' candidate.

Maybe they aren't going through the motions just yet - my ignorance of US govt procedure is showing. Hope they get Kocky-man anyway.

This is a tough one.

I just haven't figured out how the Democrats are going to blame the Republicans for causing Koskinen to screw up.

And by "screw up", I mean "get caught".

R-man: By pointing out the Republicans' grossly unfair reliance on undeniable evidence.

Undeniable evidence?

There's no such animal for the Democrats. All evidence against them is deniable, and will be denied, in the court of public opinion.
