Anyone who chides the insufferable Peggy Noonan as effectively as THIS is all right in my book. (Note: be sure to watch the video.)
Recently, the IRS has admitted to subjecting Tea Party groups to scrutiny. In fact, for the past few weeks the Obama Administration has been standing “crotch deep in the scandal swamp,” said Jon Stewart of The Daily Show.
Peggy Noonan, former Reagan speechwriter, is the perfect example of what it is to live in the conservative bubble. She recently said that the scandals “make a cluster that implies very bad things…This IRS thing is something I’ve …

John Boehner [above] claims it is “inconceivable” that Obama didn’t know about the IRS targeting of conservative groups.
In that context, don’t miss today’s big Post piece documenting the behind-the-scene moves by the Obama administration as it dealt with the news of the impending inspector general’s audit. The piece reports that White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, having learned of …
