    but, as I understand it, the IRS allegedly subjected these groups to extra scrutiny to ensure that the grant of tax exmept status was warranted, which is probably what we should want the IRS to do to both "liberal" and "conservative" groups (whatever the f*ck those words mean) to ensure that said status isn't granted indiscriminately...Unlike say, during the Bush Administration, when the IRS threatened to revoke the tax exempt status of several groups that were critical of Bush Administration policies  

    So, sorry, I can't get my undies too gathered in a bunch over this story (and that f#cking GMA had Bill O'Reilly on this morning??!!??!! really?!?!?!)  

    Now, the issue with the DOJ and the AP?  That is a big deal...
