Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

It's obvious that the media is in full-on damage control mode, pulling out all the stops to protect Dear Leader from the scandals swarming around his presidency. Today's Star-Ledger trumpeted the headline — IRS Probe Ignored Most Influential Groups. Because it's not really a scandal if they only went after little guys. The Real Problem is they "ignored" Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers.
"The IRS goes AWOL when wealthy and powerful forces want to break the law in order to hide their wrongful efforts and secret political influence," said Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat who is among a small Senate group pushing campaign finance reform measures that would force these big outside groups to disclose their donors. "Picking on the little guy is a pretty lousy thing to do."
Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS and the Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity were among those that spent tens of millions of dollars on TV ads and get-out-the-vote efforts to help Republicans.
And yet those groups so far have escaped investigations into whether they have crossed the blurry line under the law between what constitutes a tax-exempt "social welfare" organization that is free from donor reporting requirements and a political committee subject to taxes and disclosures.
See, the problem isn't that the IRS targeted conservative groups; the problem is that the IRS targeted the wrong conservative groups! Why did they waste their time on the small potatoes when shutting down those evil Koch Brothers would have been much more effective? The IRS wasn't malevolent; they were inefficient!
Is that a great spin or what?
And by the way, the link above goes to the Puffington Host, because the
Ledger almost never puts these hatchet jobs on their web site.
Otherwise folks like me could call them out for their mendacity in the
comments and Tom Moran really doesn't like that.
