Has anyone EVER seen SNL's "The Church Lady" and Sarah Hall Ingram the current head of IRS-Obamacare AND the former head of the IRS division that oversees tax exemption filings like those of the Tea Party in the same room at the SAME time?

WATCH: CBS' Major Garrett calls out GOP over doctored Benghazi emails

The former Fox News correspondent takes the rare step of chastising partisan sources on air

When it emerged that ABC News had been handed misleading summaries of internal Obama administration emails hashing out post–Benghazi attack talking points, we asked who burned the network's White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl. Somewhat unexpectedly, Karl's CBS News counterpart, Major Garrett, provided us an answer: Congressional Republicans.

Karl had strongly suggested that he was quoting actual emails from White House official Ben Rhodes and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland that he had personally reviewed, instead of summaries passed on by partisan sources. According to Garrett, that's because "Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes" and "also provided what they said was a quote from an email written... by Nuland."

Whoa, says Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo. Garrett just "did something I don't feel like I've seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast." Reporters are fed leaks from "partisan, tendentious sources" all the time, and for a host of reasons — "some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad" — nothing is ever done about it. Well, Garrett just did something.

This one story means nothing. The tidal wave is just gaining momentum. This story is like CBS wearing a poncho to keep from getting wet.
It means they altered the emails they got. Republicans falsified the emails and information to make it sound like there was a White House cover up. Whatever it takes to get the job done Battie.!

Thank you for proving my point. Instead of arguing to the contrary, you insulted me and made false accusations.

Morning Homer, you are so right. Anytime you turn on Fox it is a steady diet of bend twist and perpetuate their obvious agenda while distorting the many accusations. Mean while the sheep Baa and repeat the same.

The White House bowed to Republican pressure on Wednesday to release emails dealing with the aftermath of last year's killings of four Americans, including the US ambassador, in an attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.

The emails reveal intense negotiations between the White House, the State Department and the CIA over what the government should say about the attack in public.

Republicans have for months been claiming the White House was engaged in a cover-up, downplaying the role of an al-Qaida inspired group in the attack and suggesting instead the attack was mainly the result of a demonstration by a mob against an American-produced anti-Islam film.

The White House claims the 100 pages of released emails vindicates its actions and that there was no cover-up.

The emails relate to talking points drawn up by the White House, the State Department and the CIA for use by the US ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, and by members of Congress for use in media interviews.

Lost amidst the White House he-said-she-said of finger pointing, scandal, incompetence, venality, hubris, vanity, error, greed, gluttony, embarrassment, cover up, stupidity, amateur bungling, brownnosing, grandstanding, photo-opting and hearings as the result of a few minor mistakes made by the Obama administration-

an administration which rode roughshod over a several outdated laws, certain small parts of the Bill of Rights written by irrelevant white dudes;

an administration that got people killed, violated civil rights, harassed government employees, ignored it’s basic responsibilities and common sense- are these small, little, niggling details:

The folks in charge are freaking hypocrites; and because the are hypocrites they have nothing to offer the American people.

Nothing as in Zero (0).

Their ideas don’t work, and all they stand for is some vague notion of fairness and equity, with themselves as judge over what’s fair and what’s not. Even in that they fail.

As demonstrated recently, their notions of fairness and equity are worrisome. They want to win politically, by fair means or foul. That’s their only idea of fairness.(kind of like "freedom of speech" on a liberal college campus--only allowed if you agree with the anti-American professors who are busy indoctrinating the naive students).

Let’s get that straight right now: Neither the Democrat Party, nor the Republican Party (or the Libertarians or the Party According to St. Ron Paul), occupies some morally superior position either by virtue of ideology, philosophy or through the grace of God.

Political parties, units of government, corporations, non-profits, churches or GBLT parade groups are not bestowed with moral qualities.

Only people are moral beings. Institutions, including the corporations known as presidential administrations, are amoral.

They all do whatever they can do to survive.

I was struck by this as I was reading a Chicago Tribune editorial-board editorial that was less-than-supportive of the administration’s explanations about the triptych of scandals now besieging the White House.

“At each of these turns,” writes the Tribune,“the Obama administration has looked manipulative, defensive and peevish. In one sense those aren't startling reactions; they're vulnerabilities for any White House that, like this one, wants an image of moral righteousness, honesty and transparency.”

I know, I know: You’re laughing too that anyone, even the Chicago Tribune editorial board, could take seriously an Obama administration “that wants an image of moral righteousness, honesty and transparency.”

But the administration does want to project that image. Obama was re-elected not because he was effective as the executive head of government, but because the American people long for leaders who offer them moral righteousness.

The American people will overlook incompetence for the ability to live daringly, greatly and righteously.

You made me laugh as you reminded me of my wife's former friend. There was a group of four of them. My wife and two of the friends decided the other was a nutcase liberal so they kind of went separate ways.

Years later the liberal nutcase showed up at a class reunion, dressed like a hobo and she actually crashed the reunion, not paying (typical kike Democrat), came in and started juggling balls. This same person had a bumper sticker on her car in the early 2000s with the text "think globally, act locally".

Ironically, her car was a 1973 Dodge that emitted blue smoke out the exhaust.

You must be related to her, freak!

Baaawwwaaahhh!!!!!
