Scandal-Palooza is not going away, and the mainstream media has proved that it will pay some attention to it (we love you, Sheryl Attkisson and we stand with you, James Rosen!) But realizing that their ideological standard-bearers are in serious trouble (along with their future election victories), progressives are going out of their way to defend the indefensible. There is no depth to which the progressive won't sink in pushing their beliefs and attacking non-believers.
The rational person looks at the IRS scandal with disgust. The idea that an administration would use a government agency to attack Americans is repugnant. Hell, it's un-American! It's the stuff of banana republics -- or perhaps a Matt Damon film. But that is no deterrent for the progressive.
In Colorado, people signed a giant card to thank the IRS for targeting Tea Party groups. One could assume that it was those dreaded "low information voters" who didn't know any better. But that's not it. Low information voters think Benghazi is a salve for sore muscles. Signing a thank you card to the IRS for harassing Americans is proof of progressivism's mental decay.
And did anyone else see the Lois Lerner disaster -- her testimony -- to the House Oversight committee? Before hiding behind the 5th amendment (which is very legal and, as Kurt Schlichter points out, paints her as the, "[p]oster child for the rampant corruption and petty tyranny,") she lectured the committee about her innocence. Only a progressive can lecture people about their greatness, and then refuse to answer questions about their said greatness. Ok, progressives and Meghan McCain....but I repeat myself.
Progressive Guru Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took to the NBC's Meet The Press to defend potential (probable?) perjurer Attorney General Eric Holder. Schumer voiced support for both Holder and President Obama, and claimed that there is not a "scintilla" of evidence to show that Holder perjured himself regarding the warrants (signed by Holder to dig for information on Fox News reporter James Rosen):
