Bette Midler: ‘I love the IRS’
The Daily Caller ^ | May 14, 2013 | Patrick Howley, Investigative Reporter

Posted on 05/14/2013 7:22:45 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

“Hunchback of Notre Dame” star Bette Midler declared that she loves the Internal Revenue Service for targeting the tax-exempt status of conservative groups.

“I LOVE THE IRS!!! HOW CAN A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION BE CALLED A NON-PROFIT THAT PROMOTES GENERAL WELFARE??,” Midler tweeted in all caps Monday.

The IRS apologized Friday for improperly giving extra scrutiny to the tax-exempt status of conservative nonprofit groups — a confession White House press secretary Jay Carney said President Barack Obama would find “outrageous” if confirmed by an independent report.

Midler, an Obama supporter who has previously tweeted that “Obama inherited this [economic] mess, he didn’t start it,” subsequently made a bizarre statement regarding the IRS scandal that seemed to undercut her partisan argument.

“But when is the IRS going to investigate GE and all the other corporations who get away with paying ZERO taxes???,” Midler tweeted Tuesday....

I don’t think Midler is making enough money to pay taxes these days. I can see why she loves the IRS. They probably send her an Earned Income Tax Credit check once a year.

Have the IRS audit her finances then we’ll see how long the love affair lasts. Just another self-serving actor trying to stay relevant and get more acting roles. No surprises here.

I once saw her interviewed where she was asked how beautiful she was on a scale of 1 to 10. She replied, “I don’t know, a 55?”

My estimate was 0.55.

We just have to convince Muslims that due to sequester, the IRS is using pages of the Koran for toilet paper.

Midler is now 67 or 68 years old and the early signs of dementia are beginning to take its toll.

What happened to the brains of actors?
They had brains?

I love the middle ages. Everywhere, the actors were always segregated away from decent normal folks. The were usually housed with cattle somewhere just out of town.

There are two types of actors. The select few who are decent, knowledgeable human beings first, actors second.

And then there's the rotting mass of the others who equate wealth with goodness and excellence.

After all, what are they?
People with no character, reading lines written by others, pretending to be someone they're not, and surrounded by an ego that manages to conceal, most of the time, the utter rot.

Other than that, they're OK.

That or standing on soap boxes blathering about anything and everything while being looked upon as the village idiots. Or locked up and forgotten about in an insane asylum. The shallow, narcissistic line readers and drama queens that make up Hollywood would find themselves in similar situations if it weren't for Edison, Disney, Tesla, Marconi, Philo Farnsworth, Vladimir Zworkin, Jack Warner and countless other dead White guys whose creativity, business expertise and sheer genius made the "Entertainment industrial complex" what it is today. Egomaniacs like the Divine (GAG!) Ms. M. demand to be taken seriously? And to think when I was a kid I was made fun of for believing pro wrestling was real!

Of course, if it had been Hollywood targeted, she’d be screaming bloody murder.

No one expects actors and actresses to demonstrate intellectual - much less moral - acuity.

the very heart, the essence of the liberal mind is total control....

remember the days when the college kids just wanted "free speech" and "free press" and wanted to be able to say or write whatever crap they wanted?....

remember how horrible we are told about Joe McCarthy?...how he was borked before Bork was even around?....

what they actually want is to imprison anyone and everyone who disagrees with them....

Che...just kill anybody that doesn't agree with you...

I don’t know his politics, but Gary Oldman is one of my fave character actors. He has been fantastic in every role I’ve seen.

How you could compare a one-trick-pony like Midler with him...

I also wonder if Midler’s comment isn’t HEAVY sarcasm. Nobody could be that ignorant could they?

Most leftwingers try to maintain the fiction that they are loving, caring souls, rather than jackbooted fascists at heart.

She just comes right out and basks in her totalitarian glory, like Mussolini, only uglier.
