Ed Schultz Now Hawking Gold As A "Lifeboat" In America's Sinking Economy

Just in case you needed any more evidence to prove that Ed Schultz is a hack who will pretty much say whatever he’s told to say, consider this recent ad in which Schultz shills for gold, a product usually pushed by the likes of Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. Via Mediate: Normally Schultz

North Dakotans Got An Early Preview Of Obama's Politics By Any Means Necessar

Each day it seems we’re treated – if that’s the right word for it – to a new and depressing headline about mistreatment of conservative groups and individuals by the IRS.

North Dakota Isn't Governed By Conservatives

IRS, White House Were Reviewing Conservative Watchdog Website Simultaneously

The big question in the IRS scandal is how far up the ladder knowledge of the targeting of conservative groups went. The Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity has some circumstantial evidence indicating that their news website, WatchDog.org, was under heavy review by both the IRS and the White House at the same time:

Holder: Searching Reporter Phone Calls Is So Routine I Can't Remember How Many Times It Has Happened

So what he’s saying is the recently-divulged search of phone calls placed by AP reporters wasn’t the only instance. In fact, what he seems to be saying is that this sort of thing is so routine he can’t remember how many times it has happened. As his Justice Department faces bipartisan outrage for searching phone
