First of all, I do not take dictionary definitions very seriously--they show a lack of creativity on one's part. Second of all, I said before that I am not a beacon of Olympian Objectivity when it comes to Judicial Watch. Third of all, I may show favoritism towards them, but it is only because I appreciate their diligence and hard work. Fourth of all, I have no self-interest in Judicial Watch, so I don't know what you are talking about there; I do not even want to work for them when I get out of school, so my defense of them is not for extra brownie points or anything like that.

Howlin, my point is that the same standard should be applied to you. You have let your intense personal distaste for Klayman cloud your ability to see the good he has done and is currently doing.

Do you guys question whether that IRS official actually said, "Well, you sued the President, what do you expect," or do you simply attribute no significance to it?

Regardless of that, Do you deny there is a pattern of IRS harassment of conservative groups over the last decade?
