    Looks like the GOP narrative has blown up in their faces and the investigation will now be about the George/Issa conspiracy to misled Congress. This is beautiful.


    Beautiful if you like half truth and lies.

    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    The conspiracy thickens, just like conservative skulls.
    Your narrative doesn't fly anymore. The abuse unravels, it travels up the chain of supervision, and your defense has evolved with every step, and it's been disproven at every turn. We now have proof of WH involvement. The journey from Cincinnati to DC is being fueled with truth, and your protestations only make the truth smell sweeter.

    "It was Maryland's Rep. Elijah Cummings, the panel's ranking Democrat, who, absurdly, asked Ms. Hofacre if the White House called the Cincinnati office to tell them what to do and whether she has knowledge of the president of the United States digging through the tax returns of citizens. Ms. Hofacre looked surprised. No, she replied.

    It wasn't hard to imagine her thought bubble: Do congressmen think presidents call people like me and say, "Don't forget to harass my enemies"? Are congressmen that stupid?

    Mr. Cummings is not, and his seeming desperation is telling. Recent congressional information leads to Washington—and now to very high up at the IRS. Meaning this is the point at which a scandal goes nowhere or, maybe, everywhere.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican, finally woke the proceedings up with what he called "the evolution of the defense" since the scandal began. First, Ms. Lerner planted a question at a conference. Then she said the Cincinnati office did it—a narrative that was advanced by the president's spokesman, Jay Carney. Then came the suggestion the IRS was too badly managed to pull off a sophisticated conspiracy. Then the charge that liberal groups were targeted too—"we did it against both ends of the political spectrum." When the inspector general of the IRS said no, it was conservative groups that were targeted, he came under attack. Now the defense is that the White House wasn't involved, so case closed."

    After the grilling George took yesterday, don't count on it. The Democrats should begin obstruction of justice proceedings against him and force Issa to explain under oath his involvement in the false report.

    Head, the report is accurate. If you think the democrats should go after it, and Issa, I encourage you to encourage them to do it. Lame attempts at obfuscation are always fun.

    And don't forget that the IRS has to recant its admission that they targeted the opposition. I'm sure they were just kidding anyway.

    Only in conservativebizarroland is a report that leaves out important, indeed, critical, facts out, "accurate"

    Keep spinning like a fly with one wing!

    Keep the spin alive. Meantime, it appears George may have engaged in obstruction of justice (remember Boehner said there was a crime committed), and Issa is involved.

    It's hilarious how Issa thought he could get away with this. And now he's cautioning people "not to jump to conclusions".

    Perfect.

    George and Issa are in full damage control mode:

    It is not spin. This thing wasn't started by politicians. It began when the IRS revealed that they were targeting the opposition and apologized for it. Nobody knew about it until that happened. Hey. Facts are facts.
