    who said those were the only words they searched for? that they only searched for words that would bring up right-wing groups?

    investigation is warranted into what other words they were using, but it looks like the top brass are just hitting the Eject button on a bunch of low-level guys, throwing up their hands and saying "we're sorry, we're sorry, it was those bad apples" instead of attempting to clarify the issue at all.

    this is the Tea Party and Fox News we're talking about here, which obviously calls for appeasement. skepticism is reserved for hippies

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

      brought up liberal groups based on their politics?

      For example, one phrase was "making America a better place to live".

      Should groups (which are just people organized together) be subject to special scrutiny because they want to make America a better place to live?

      The IRS has no business selecting people to harass on such a basis.
