CNN Worships ‘Unflappable’ IRS Commissioner (VIDEO)
Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 24 2014 | Washington Free Beacon

CNN enjoyed a major lovefest with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Tuesday evening on The Lead.

John Berman and Tom Foreman took turns complimenting Koskinen and lavishly heaping praise upon him.

Referring to the heated exchange between Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), Foreman said “The White House could have not have picked a better brawler.” He went on to brag that Koskinen was trained in Physics during his time at Duke and studied Law at Yale. His resume includes stints working for a New York Mayor, a Connecticut Senator, and he was even Deputy Mayor of Washington, D.C. during a harrowing financial crisis. He enjoys advocating for “seemingly lost clauses,” Foreman gleamed.

He continued to rattle off a long list of Koskinen’s accomplishments- he helped bring the World Cup to the United States in 1994, President Clinton appointed him to work on the possible Y2K computer destruction disaster, and he headed Freddie Mac.

Foreman described Koskinen’s terse conversation with Issa last night as “calm”- “as if discussing the weather.” He went so far as to call the IRS Commissioner “unflappable” and remarked that he hit back at Issa “hard and fast.”

No where in Foreman’s longwinded love sonnet to Koskinen did he mention the gravity of the situation that Foreman is caught in: the IRS has lost emails crucial to the investigation to determine why conservative groups were specifically targeted and subsequently audited by the IRS.

Worship Gowdy? I do.

He still has only 7,000 YouTube subscribers.

Let’s move that up a bit, shall we?

CNN would worship Ernst Blofeld if employed by this administration.

Just proves how corrupt and utterly lacking in integrity they've become.

I’d like to see how “unflappable” this loser-of-a-commissioner would be in prison.

Gowdy unleashed hell on this guy today, providing some GREAT soundbites.

Of course the drooling toads in the MSM still have their lips too firmly stuck to Obama's arse to notice.

Lizard people don’t do prison. They do spontaneous combustion right before the people get their hands on them.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen: Lois, do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway—studies by conservative organizations, mind you—to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk... ice cream. Ice cream, Lois, children’s ice cream.

IRS Agent and Political Hack Lois Lerner: [very nervous] No sir, I did not.

Commissioner: You know when fluoridation first began?

Lerner: I... no, no. I don’t, John.

Commissioner: Following the GOP convention, in Nineteen hundred and forty-six. 1946, Lois. How does that coincide with your post-war Conservative conspiracy, huh? It’s incredibly obvious, isn’t it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That’s the way your hard-core conservative works.

Lerner: Uh, John, John, listen... tell me, tell me, John. When did you first... become... well, develop this theory?

Commissioner: [somewhat embarassed] Well, I, uh... I... I... first became aware of it, Lois, during the physical act of love.
Lerner: Hmmm.

Commissioner: Yes, a uh, a profound sense of fatigue... a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I... I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence.
Lerner: Hmmm.

Commissioner: I can assure you it has not recurred, Lois. Women uh... women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh... I do not avoid women, Lois. I’m sure you must sense what I’m saying.
Lerner: No.

Commissioner: But I ... I do deny them my essence. And your performance review is coming up soon, am I right?
Lerner: Uh, yeah.

Commissioner: All right then. Here’s what we’re going to do, you and me ...

CNN: Attention comrades! Comrades, we have glorious news for you!
