As if it weren’t bad enough to learn that conservative-targeting IRS official Lois Lerner had been placed on paid administrative leave, Sen. Chuck Grassley let slip Thursday that Lerner’s summer vacation with pay came only after she refused a request to resign. Sarah Palin proposed at least one alternative use for Lerner’s annual salary, not even taking into account the tens of thousands awarded in bonuses over the past several years.

Well, what if, instead of filling the position, we just abolished the IRS entirely? That could save a few bucks.
