"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Lois Lerner's List of Lies

Kevin Williamson has a great article up at NRO about the "nine lies" of Lois Lerner, the IRS official who announced last Friday that the government had been targeting Tea Party groups.   Read the whole thing, but here's the money graph:

What we have, then, is this: Under a Democratic administration, the IRS was under pressure from Democratic elected officials to investigate political enemies of the Democratic party. The agency did so. Its commissioner lied to Congress about its doing so. When the inspector general’s report was about to make these abuses public, the agency staged a classic Washington Friday news rollout at a sleepy American Bar Association tax-law conference, hoping to minimize the bad publicity.

Tick-tock, tick-tock.   That's the clock ticking until we start drafting impeachment articles.
