While Paul Ryan certainly has a history of scumbaggery himself, he certainly gets our tip of the hat in this instance for completely pwning IRS Commissioner John Koskinen regarding the recent lost e-mail scandal. Paul goes off on the commissioner eloquently putting things into a crystal-clear perspective. He reminds the commissioner that the IRS would not tolerate any taxpayer losing records over the past seven 7 years, yet, the taxpayer are supposed to tolerate a scenario where the IRS loses data over just the past 6 months?
This only leads us to one question. Who is going to start the online Whitehouse petition to change the motto of the IRS to: “Do as we say, not as (smugly) do it.”?
This is Adam Carolla tearing his detractors a new one for calling him a racist simply because he thinks that minority families should concentrate on keeping the family together. In particular, this voracious rant stems from Carolla’s earlier exchange with California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom about why it appears poverty disproprotionately affects blacks and latinos, but not other minority races. Newsom tip-toes around the question, but like too many other politicians out there can’t give a clear answer. Shocked? We weren’t, either.
Well, in another case of a power-loving man promising one thing but doing another, we have probably the most glaring example since Donald Trump pretended to be a serious contender in the 2012 Presidential Run.
In light of the recent NSA wiretapping debacle, watch as Senator Barack Obama ‘debates’ with President Barack Obama. One speaks about retaining the Constitution, and how, “it works” while the other speaks about how the wiretapping “helps prevent terrorist attacks.”
It’s almost as if (brace yourself) politicians will pander and play partisan politics just to get what they want. Regardless, sit back, relax and watch the POTUS being pwned by none other than himself.
And with a flourish Michelle Bachmann, amid scandal and controversy, has retired from politics. In honor of a politician who’s graces this web site so many times it feels as if we should make a special “5 timers” club post not unlike Justin Timberlake’s latest SNL foray. Rachel Maddow unfortunately beat us to it with a break down of Bachmann’s political strategy and demagoguery. She’s not only appealing to ignorance, she embodies it, comprehends the mind set and responds accordingly on the pulse of the FOX News. David Plouff recently had a quote as to how he see’s her role and exit in politics.
Stephanopoulos asked former Obama advisor David Plouffe if Democrats would miss Bachmann.
“Terribly,” Plouffe said. “It’s fun having her and the Sarah Palins of the world on the scene, because they sort of define this modern Republican party. Now you’ve got others to replace her. Now you’ve got Ted Cruz and others to fill the bill.”
