NYTimes headline on IRS targeting says if "Gives GOP an Issue". Isn't the story the agency's outrageous, indefensible conduct?—

Bingo. But not to lapdogs who are too busy begging for an extra bowl of kibble.
Yep. Remember, the media turned Romney’s statement on Benghazi into a date that will live in infamy.
The fish wrap of record finally promoted the IRS’ targeting of conservatives to the first page, after attempting to bury it.
But if you think the actual story is the chilling actions of the IRS, guess again!
That’s right. Check out the headline via screenshot:
Since last year’s elections, Republicans in Congress have struggled for traction on their legislative efforts, torn between conservatives who drove the agenda after their 2010 landslide and new voices counseling a shift in course to reflect President Obama’s re-election and the loss of Republican seats in the House and the Senate.
But the accusations of I.R.S. abuse are sure to fuel an effort that appears to be uniting dispirited Republicans and their conservative political base: investigating Mr. Obama and his administration. Republicans are pushing a portrayal of an administration overreaching its authority and punishing its enemies.
Poor “dispirited” Republicans finally have something around which to rally. So they’ve been targeted by the IRS. Big whoop! Like Obama henchman David Plouffe said, they totally had it coming for “flourishing” and all.
Citizens on Twitter are disgusted and rightfully so.
"NYT: I.R.S. Focus on Conservatives Gives G.O.P. an Issue to Seize On." Right, because the story is the GOP's issue, not IRS malfeasance.—

Heh. How nefarious!
For shame, lapdogs. For shame.
