Everything has turned on the president.
At a House hearing on IRS probes of conservative groups, former acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller and Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George learned what everyone else already knew.
This is Rob Ford.
He is (somehow) the mayor of Toronto.
His pastimes include being kicked out of military balls for drunkenness, getting busted with weed while vacationing in Florida, and leading a very un-Canadian crusade against cyclists, poor people and politeness.
There is now a video of Ford — or someone who looks exactly like him — smoking crack cocaine, which 1) explains a lot about the mayor’s other behavior and 2) is way healthier than many Canadians’ poutine habit.

Ah, the forgotten commandment: thou shalt not commit adultery, unless thou art handsome.
1. Louie Gohmert’s nickname for his integrity is “asparagus.” As in, “I dare anyone to question my asparagus.”
2. Louie Gohmert suffers from a rare brain disease that makes him speak exclusively in alliteration.
3. Louie Gohmert keeps a bag of asparagus in his desk, and Eric Holder has complained about it, and the congressman decided to bring this up during a hearing.
Maybe all of the above.
This is Nico. He’s the grandson of Rep. Mel Watt (D-NC). He wasn’t allowed to question Attorney General Eric Holder at this afternoon’s House Judiciary Committee hearing.
But if he was, Nico would’ve had the guts to ask what Holder knew about Dora the Explorer’s Mystery of the Missing Shoes and when he knew it.

House Speaker/Old West posse leader John Boehner wants some IRS varmints thrown in jail for running CTRL+F “tea party” “patriot” on a list of tax-exempt applications.
Never mind that none of the groups had their tax-exempt status revoked! John Boehner is certain that “somebody violated the law.”
If there’s one thing Boehner holds sacred, it’s America’s laws. Now excuse him while he tries to repeal the health care law for the 37th time.
