WHAT ARE THE ODDS? Obama Summons Ezra Klein, Josh Marshall for Private Confab Tuesday, Both Echo Same IRS "Solution" Today
by Doug Ross
Imagine the coincidence. Yesterday, DNC sock-puppets Ezra Klein and Josh Marshall were summoned to the White House for an emergency propaganda press briefing.
And today -- wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles -- both are singing from the same hymnal.
Marshall and Klein have portrayed all the scandals as faux scandals. Ezra Klein notoriously predicted -- wishcast, actually -- last week that the wheels were coming off the scandal wagon and that everyone would see how silly all of this is.
But today, they sing a different tune:
Both of those tweets argue that Lerner should be fired.
I imagine they're arguing for this because Obama has already decided to fire her.
Thus, they put out a Possible Solution Which Will Completely Solve This Whole Scandal-Business, Obama implements this Solution, and then there's no more scandal!
What I glean from this is that the previous White House position -- nothing more needs be done, this is all a "partisan fishing expedition" -- is now inoperative, and a new defense -- fire Lois Lerner and then claim that nothing more needs be done, this is all now just a partisan fishing expedition, again -- is now in effect.
Even more startling, other hacks/journalists suddenly have the very same opinion! It's like ESP, only with Leftists! Take Joan Walsh at Salon (please!) who notes, "Why Lerner still has a job is the biggest mystery in this entirely mysterious story."
Amazing: the White House summons its media toadies -- the very same Leftists who used to coordinate media talking points on the infamous Journolist, in fact -- and *voila!* like magic the Washington Post and other DNC press release outlets are magically in synch with the Obama administration.
