Tax Panel Was a Real Snoozer Until Lois Lerner Started Talking About the Whole IRS Targeting the Tea Party Thing

I know you'll find it hard to believe that American Bar Association's annual tax meeting was a little boring, but right up to the point when Celia Roady, "a veteran tax lawyer" asked IRS tax-exempt head Lois Lerner for an update on the review of 501(c)(4) organizations, things were downright Lunesta-ish:  

Paul Streckfus, the editor of EO Tax Journal, an online publication for exempt organization tax practitioners, told TPM he had been “dozing off” when Roady had asked the question, but had “jumped almost out of my seat” when he realized what Lerner was saying. […] Once Lerner had finished, Streckfus rushed up along with another reporter to question Lerner further, but she begged off.

You made it one for the ages, Lois!
