Somehow …

After reading yet another indictment about the glorious behavior of our “do-gooders” in DC, I just do not believe for one second that the Lois Lerner e-mails went missing. Call me crazy, but for an organization that hunts folks down because their TurboTax forgets to claim 8 cents of income, and for one that surely has backups of their servers, I find it breathlessly unbelievable to hear any excuse for piles of missing emails from anyone, much less someone at the level of Ms. Lerner.

Maybe once we kick George Bush out of the White House the whole government will start working better for the people.

I hate to jump on these sorts of bandwagons because they are prone to being echo-chambery, but in this case it is appropriate. And sadly, as you are aware, neither the VA debacle, the IRS debacle or any of the other debacles are going to have many folks rethinking the proper scope, role and incentives within government. Hence the piling on now.

    Peter Johnson, one of the lawyers on Fox, said that Lois Lerner’s e-mails, even if they were removed from the IRS server, would still exist on the recipient’s computer. It is just more complicated to subpoena Lerner’s e-mails to Chuck Schumer, David Plouffe, etc. Sure, it would cost a lot, but then is this not about creating jobs for new graduates of our law schools?

    Go ahead and pile on, WC!

    I think we need to be taxed more so that the IRS could have enough money to properly keep track of all those emails. Obviously the VA and IRS do not have a sufficient budget to do the job right. (Although this is intended to be sarcasm, it’s close to how things actually work in DC.)

    This may be a coincidence, but Lois’s DC vanity plate is rm*.
