  •  Not just Issa who should be ashamed. (7+ / 0-)

    Many people here, including front pagers, were ready to believe the worst without examining the evidence. So quick were they to describe this "scandal" as being without defense, they began to sound like the "very serious people" in the media that they so often decry.

    So the facts are:

    A. No wrongdoing.
    B. No scandal.
    C. No conservative groups were ultimately denied the status they sought.
    D. The only groups who were denied were liberal groups.

    First the  ACORN "scandal." Then the IRS "scandal." In both cases, the truth is now known but the damage is already done. When (not if, when) this happens again, please remember what happened here and don't fall for it again.

    •  The truth of those two cases has been (0+ / 0-)

      ignored by the media and therefore never came to the level of the original "scandals."

      I'm certain if people even think about ACORN today their feelings are negative. The same goes for the IRS story.

      See my comments above.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.
