The IRS Scandal

This was just too hilarious. The other day they dragged the former head of the IRS Douglas Shulman’s sorry ass in front of Congress to, as they say, Explain His Position.  Shulman admitted he found out about the IRS scandal “sometime in the Spring of 2012” (for those of you keeping score at home, that’s a full year ago).   And he assured Congress that  “I very much regret that this happened on my watch.”

But apparently Shulman doesn’t regret that he knew about this a full year ago and didn’t do a damn thing to stop it.   And apparently Shulman doesn’t regret that when Congress asked him about it a year ago he was “admamant in his denials” that anything was going on.

But here’s the punchline.  Near the conclusion of Shulman’s performance he assured Congress:  “I did not lie.”  So there you go.  Talk about comedy jokes!  I almost chortled.  I would have guffawed but my guts hurt from all the malt liquor I’ve been drinking lately.

And get this.  The White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough knew about it.  Treasury Secretary Jack Lew knew about it.   Attorney General Eric Holder knew about it.  God only knows who else in the White House knew about it.  And yet, oddly, Obama — the Commander in Chief  — claims he didn’t find out about it until a couple of weeks ago when he read about it in the newspapers!

Its just too much!  Its too bad Republicans aren’t any good at writing comedy.   They could be having a field day with this one.
