Scandal Fever has hit Capital Hill and the investigation into the IRS unfairly targeting Tea Party groups is one of the hottest. Julian Bond, Chairman Emeritus of the NAACP had some very cold words on the matter:

I mean, here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who tried as best they can to harm President Obama in every way they can, ... They are the Taliban wing of American politics and we all ought to be a little worried about them." - Julian Bond
"Truth hurts," according to Bond.

While Bond doesn't feel that the there was any wrong doing by the IRS, it will be up investigators to discover the truth. Only time will tell if this is the big moment before President Obama reveals that this whole time he was a patriot-shaming, constitution-hating, African-born-socialist.

Today on #TWiBRadio  #TeamBlackness discussed The NAACP's Julian Bond dismissing parallels between the IRS targeting the Tea Party, the New Hampshire Tea Party Coalition dry snitching on fakes among their ranks, and ironically doing goodwill for the homeless. Listen here:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
