If we had a Republican administration — a Romney or McCain or George W. Bush administration — and the IRS had systemically targeted liberal groups, while letting conservative groups slide: What would liberals be saying? What would the Democratic party be saying? What would the mainstream media be saying?
I think it would be Armageddon.
P.S. What if a right-wing administration had singled out Jewish groups? Think of the associations that would have called up!
P.P.S. Weren’t the Democrats telling us at their last convention that “Government is the only thing we all belong to”? What happened to that?
P.P.P.S. American life is more and more resembling an Ayn Rand novel. The common experience among righties is, you start out Randian when you’re a teen and then grow out of it and into conservatism. Hell, I think I may be going the other way . . .
