    The Internal Revenue Service, which claims to be so understaffed that it can’t bother to collect unpaid taxes, or search backup tapes for Lois Lerner’s “missing” emails, apparently has plenty of time to read the comment threads on conservative blogs that have been critical of the agency (Hi there, IRS agents!). William Jacobson, one of the best-informed and most effective critics of the agency, writes on Legal Insurrection: Hey, remember the Reader Poll we did about whether it was okay to follow and try to interview Lois Lerner in her neighborhood? Do you approve of media confronting Lois Lerner in...

    Apparently the DUmmies revealed their TRUE selves when they slammed WWII vets for going through the WWII Memorial barriers before they had a chance to review the liberal talking points memos that came out later. See, according to the liberal talking points, the vets were prevented from entering the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. because the EVIL Republicans caused the government shutdown. Of course, all mention of the FACT that it was Republican congressional officials, including Michelle Bachmann, and NOT any Democrat helped to lower the barriers for the vets was not mentioned at all as you can see...

    The cat is finally out of the bag. A blogger for the liberal Huffington Post has finally admitted that liberal mainstream media outlets made a conscious decision to ignore the Kermit Gosnell abortion-murder trial. In a HuffPost Live segment today on the issue, host Marc Lamont Hill admitted what many pro-life advocates have been thinking: “For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights. Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection...

    A former lawmaker who resigned after being accused of fondling a teenager was the only candidate to file for his old House seat Monday and will return to the Arkansas Legislature next year unless a write-in or third-party candidate successfully challenges him. Former Rep. Roosevelt Dwayne Dobbins resigned and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment in 2005 in a plea bargain reached after he was arrested on a felony sexual assault charge. The deal did not bar the North Little Rock Democrat from seeking elective office in the future, prosecutor Larry Jegley said. The head of the state Democratic Party said...

    The prostitution ring that ensnared New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer stunned officers at SAPD. For some, the big surprise wasn't that a federal wiretap captured a governor arranging to meet a call girl. No, the shock was how much prostitutes were charging: $1,000 to $5,500 per hour. "That's crazy," one cop said. "Who could afford that?" Court papers say a number of wealthy men met with Emperor's Club prostitutes in New York, Washington, London, Paris, Miami, and Los Angeles. Spitzer, an affidavit says, paid $4,300 in cash. "Amazing," said a second officer. "Makes you wonder what the girl did in...

    NEW YORK — New York Republicans will seek to impeach Democratic Gov. Eliot Spitzer if he does not resign within 48 hours, New York Assembly Republican leader James Tedisco told FOX News exclusively. "We believe it is an illegal activity he has been involved with," Tedisco said speaking on FOX's "Hannity & Colmes." "We're going to give him 24 to 48 hours to do the right thing, and the right thing is to resign because he has been compromised. If that's not the case ... we're going to ask the speaker to start impeachment proceedings," Tedisco said Monday night. -snip-

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The ABC7 I-Team has the inside story of what lead up to the arrest of popular talk-radio host, Bernie Ward, on federal child pornography charges. It's an investigation you'll see Only On 7. We warn you that some of the information is graphic. Bernie Ward got indicted in December and got fired from his job at KGO Radio, effective at the end of last year. Now, police reports just obtained by the I-Team tell us who blew the whistle on Ward, and how he came to send the woman child porn, by his own admission. The...

    The House of Representatives almost turned into the Fight Club Thursday night, when Democrats ruled that a GOP motion had failed even though, when the gavel fell, the electronic score board showed it winning 215-213 along with the word FINAL. The presiding officer, Rep. Mike McNulty (D., N.Y.), actually spoke over the clerk who was trying to announce the result. In the ensuing confusion several members changed their votes and the GOP measure to deny illegal aliens benefits such as food stamps then trailed 212-216. Boiling-mad Republicans stormed off the floor. The next day, their fury increased when they learned...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Marion County residents who were denied the right to vote Tuesday may never find out who directly caused their problems. County clerk Beth White said Thursday that she will not release the names of the inspectors who failed to show up, causing many precincts to open late or not at all, 6News' Norman Cox reported. White said she doesn't think anything can be gained by releasing the names. By her own estimate, about 150 who had signed up to be inspectors failed to show up, resulting in as many as 100 precincts opening as late as 4 p.m....

    La.'s voters are either masochists or just stupid for re-electing JeffersonBy Tonyaa Weathersbee, Guest Columnist December 18, 2006 It's official: The people in Louisiana's 2nd Congressional That has to be the reason why they voted to send Rep. William J. Jefferson, a man with legal woes the size of the federal deficit, back to Washington recently. I'd prefer to believe that there's a psychological reason behind their choice rather than another one: That they're just straight-up stupid. This past Saturday, Jefferson, Louisiana's first black congressman since Reconstruction, overwhelmingly defeated state Rep. Karen Carter, who is also black, in a runoff...

    Editorial - "Evidently Berger at one point in his October 2 visit began to raise eyebrows because of frequent bathroom breaks as well. The Washington Post which has managed to largely ignore the Berger scandal finally did admit in a piece today that Berger's behavior caught the monitor's attention early on." "After his September visit, with documents seemingly missing, the Archive monitors coded pages Berger was interested in upon his October visit. Sure enough those papers ended up missing as well. Some of which were recovered at his home at the behest of the FBI and others must have inadvertently...
