Short diary but Wow.   Mitch McConnell got handed his ass by David Gregory and called out entirely for having no actual evidence of wrongdoing by the Obama administration in relation to the IRS "Scandal"®.    

I looked to see if there were diaries here about this yet and didn't see one - forgive if I am repeating.

This is a great clip to watch.

More often than not when I see David Gregory I am more or less screaming "Ask him/her _____" where the blank represents "Anything which will really expose what is going on here.

Not this time.   He called him to the floor and told him he was making a leap and when Mitch told him he didn't have all of the details Gregory told him that didn't stop him from making accusations.   Here's the text from that:

"GREGORY: But Senator, that– that was a leap…

SEN. MCCONNELL: …who think that…

GREGORY: …that’s a leap that can you make as argument, but you don’t have fact to back it up. You can create and I just asked…

SEN. MCCONNELL: Well, the investigation…

GREGORY: …I asked Dan Pfeiffer about it. You can you talk about a culture. Do you have any evidence that the President of the United States directed what you call a culture of intimidation at the IRS to target political opponents?

SEN. MCCONNELL: I– I don’t think we know what the facts are. All I can tell you is…

GREGORY: But that hasn’t stopped you from– from accusing."

Kudos for one to DG.    Maybe the press can start to actually call these punks who are masquerading as a governing body are actually all about.   We can only hope so.

Nice #FAIL Mitch.   Check out the video -

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.
