    I heard on the radio that the IRS sent one group a questionnaire.  Oh, no!!!!!!!!  The dreaded questionnaire.  Is that SO awful.

    The worst of it is that a group like the Tea Partiers will exploit this to turn themselves into martyrs.  I'm surprised that the words "Nazi, Fascist and Holocaust" haven't already dripped from the mouths of Mitch McConnell and his ilk.

    The IRS had a right to investigate, no?  So they carried it a little too far.  I'm still not clear why any of these groups should be considered non-profits.  Maybe a little extra scrutiny was called for.  Maybe there should be more scrutiny by congress as to why they are tax exempt.

    The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
