More “smidgens” of IRS corruption »

IRS-Scandal

by Ed Rogers •

Anyone paying attention to the Internal Revenue Service scandal has been waiting for the next smidgen to drop. Well, two more hit pretty hard this week. At the president’s next encounter with the media, I will scream collusion if no one asks him for his exact definition of a “smidgen,” and if he thinks he has seen a smidgen of corruption yet.

Given the delays, lies and stonewalling, there is no viable argument against a special prosecutor.

Are We Better Off? Business Publication Says No »

Economic Conditions: All weekend, Democratic party leaders kept fumbling their answer to a simple question: Are we better off than we were four years ago? There’s a good reason for that: We’re not.
