Bette Midler praises IRS for targeting conservative groups: I LOVE THE IRS!!!
Twitchy ^ | 5/14/2013

The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names.

An inspector general’s report scheduled to be released later this week reportedly says the IRS also targeted groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.

And if that weren’t bad enough, the IRS reportedly released conservative groups’ confidential information to the “independent” (that is, liberal) news organization ProPublica.

But Bette Midler sees no reason for concern. No reason at all.

She took to Twitter last night to announce (in all caps) that she thinks what the IRS did is just great, because in her view political organizations are not legitimate 501(c)(4)s.

And if a conservative administration targeted liberal 501(c)(4) organizations like Organizing for Action, that would be just fine, right Bette?

That knife has two edges Bette.

Politics and cheating go a bit hand in hand but, this is beyond the pale.

No way you would feel the same if they had their focus on your team.

They should be absolutely non-partisan

She just set herself up for similar treatment when the worm turns. What a maroon!

It never occurs to the “useful idiots” like Bette Midler that the IRS weapon could be unleashed upon her! Stupid is as stupid does. Libs are absolutely clueless.

Until the blade is turned against them. Just another liberal performer that wants some attention because her career is in the dump. Milder can expect to lose a large audience over this but It’s not like she has much of one to begin with. The gays seem to love her. Probably because she looks like a transvestite and thats on her good days.

I wonder how Bette would feel if the IRS looked more closely into her tax returns when she was a “musician” working in the San Fran bath houses?

I’m thinking there was probably a bit of, um undisclosed earnings here and there.

Just sayin’

“HOW CAN A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION BE CALLED NON-PROFIT THAT PROMOTES THE GENERAL WELFARE”

I don’t know Bette, why don’t you call George Soros and ask him how Media Matters qualifies?

Oh, come on. You haven't forgotten Babs Streisand faxing hand scrawled notes to Tom Daschle's office and spelling his name wrong on them, have you?

Head explode?

Surely she owns a pressure cooker or two. That’s probably her next “statement”.

I suppose that’s one way to get on the IRS honor roll.
