We’re shocked, SHOCKED we tell you (but not nearly as shocked as LC & IB Ace who may not be as shocked as he pretends to be, knowing him):
President Barack Obama has thrown his acting IRS commissioner overboard, making Steven Miller the highest-ranking political casualty thus far in a series of scandals that have swept his administration in recent weeks.
In a hastily called press conference in the East Room of the White House, Obama told reporters that he had asked Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew to find out who was responsible for a program that targeted tea party groups and other conservative organizations for a special level of intrusive questioning after they applied for tax-exempt charitable statuses.
‘Lew took the first step by requesting and accepting the resignation of the acting director of the IRS,’ Obama said.
‘It’s important,’ he added, ‘to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward.’
But in an email to IRS employees, Miller claimed he would only be leaving next month because his assignment would be over.
We would include the link as we normally do when we lift stories from other sites, but when they insert IntrusionWare™ that force copies their link, they can go fuck themselves. We’ve been doing this Blogging Thing™ for well over a decade now and never once have we forgotten to credit the source, so we’re quite frankly annoyed and insulted that they feel that A) we can’t be trusted to be exhibiting common courtesy and B) we don’t know how to delete an auto-inserted link.
So fuck you.
Fuck you with a rusty mace. Up the poop hole.
So the Ogabe Junta has chosen for a scapegoat to make this whole “Ogabe Is a Fucking Tyrant” story go away because “people were held accountable and punished” some asshole thug who was planning to retire in two weeks anyway?
Imagine our surprise. And our awe at the Terrible Swift Sword of Ogabe Justice™ striking down so mercilessly and true. Let us all lick the Holy Balls of Ogabe™.
So did he lose his benefits? His pension? Did he go to jail for jackhammering the Constitution up its arse? No?
In a fire.
