    “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.

    Here is audio of Glenn Beck today responding to Bette Midler's attack on him yesterday, where she said that he is "terrifying," and that Beck could spark a "civil war" in America like what happened in Rwanda. Beck plays the clip and then responds by hammering her for displaying the "progressive movement's" disdain for anyone who disagrees with their worldview. Beck said it is Midler's "progressive" kind of thinking that has led to genocide all over the world. He also said liberals are trying to "whip up their base" by constantly saying conservatives want to "kill people." (AUDIO)

The singer and actress will pay the fines and will follow a replanting program, her attorney Max W. J. Graham said. The actress and movie star, who was born in Honolulu, didn't realize...
