When the Internal Revenue Service announced late Friday that, somehow, it lost two years worth of emails to and from Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the agencys unfair placement of Tea Party and other conservative groups on its secret Be on the Lookout List, our thoughts turned to, well, Saturday Night Live.

This administration has corrupted our entire government.
They believe the sheeple are really stupid enough to buy any lie they spread no matter how silly the lie is.
Democrats think all people are as stupid as their supporters.
They don’t care if we believe it or not, they know the “opposition” is impotent.
“Investigation by a special counsel will never happen. Our communists BLACK ars Holder will never appoint one. And even if he did it would be another communists corrupt jackass and the investigation will never result in anything. “
Have congress do it.
Have congress do it..... Do what? They haven’t done anything for 9 years that I’m aware of.
Even Republicans thought it was a good idea to let the law expire, as the Democrats abused it with the Scooter Libby non-crime. But no one could foresee the absolute LAWLESSNESS of someone like Obama coming upon the American political scene.
John Boner. Titular head of the un-indicted co-conspirators.
