The more I think about the IRS scandal, the more I think that we have Sgt. Hans Schultz of Stalag 13 in charge of the country.
One would think that when a Democratic Senator speaks out about IRS-gate, he’d be covering his own tail. Max Baucus, however, has a newfound reputation for calling a spade a spade, so when he says there’s more and possibly worse revelations about the IRS coming, I tend to sit up and listen.

The report concluded that the five-day event for 300 attendees in October 2010 at the M Resort Spa Casino cost more than $822,751. It added that many expenditures were “excessive and wasteful.”
In the wake of the report, the head of the GSA resigned and two of her deputies were fired. (The GSA is the federal agency that manages U.S. government buildings.)
This is, what, about the eleventy-dozenth “green energy” company to go under despite the Obama administration’s subsidies?
A California solar energy company that was unable to meet a deadline for an Energy Department loan guarantee last year has sought bankruptcy protection in Delaware.
Solar Trust of America’s Chapter 11 filing on Monday listed assets between $1 million and $10 million, and liabilities between $10 million and $50 million.
Hey, they should be happy to do their part to help lefties feel good about themselves, right?
According to a report released by the aid group Oxfam on Wednesday, more than 20,000 people say they were evicted from their homes here in recent years to make way for a tree plantation run by a British forestry company, emblematic of a global scramble for arable land.
Admittedly, in the big picture, it’s just a slap on the wrist, but at least it’s something:
