Like President Obama and Eric Holder, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller doesn’t know nuthin’ … except that the word “targeting” is beyond the pale when used to describe the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. In testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, he called it a “loaded term” and a “pejorative.”
Miller also claimed the IRS’ only mistake was wanting to be more efficient.
Who did the, ahem, targeting? He can’t say, but he knows the term is loaded and that’s what matters.
The IRS wasn’t targeting conservative groups? Has this guy been taking clown lessons from Jay Carney?
OK, so if Miller objects to “targeting,” what’s the acceptable term?
