    ...how taking a deeper look at groups who have seen fit to apply for 501(c)(4) status after giving themselves obviously  ideological names to see if they are ideologically-behaving is a bad thing:  It seems like exactly the proper, legal, and required thing to do. For that matter, it sounds even more to me that those other 225 groups are probably full of groups that sound like Liberals, Democrats, Progressives and others that don't fit the "look! look!  I'm being oppressed" meme that is STILL being promoted:

    I do not believe that the screening of these cases had anything to do other than consistency and identifying issues that need to have further development.
    That doesn't mean the correct criteria were used for screening, but it suggests that while inappropriate terms were used for screening, the IRS agents involved were motivated by the right thing—and given the convoluted law surrounding these sorts of groups, they didn't have an easy task.
