Press Oddly Quiet About Would-Be IRS Head's Forgetful Posture on Taxes; But Oh, By the Way, It Was Huge News That Joe the Plumber Had a Tax Lien

Instapundit, quoting Treacher:

A plumber owed $1,000 in taxes that he didn’t even know about… …and it was headline news!

That was different. Joe the Plumber, unlike Geithner the Would-Be SecTreas and Head IRS Collections Agent, had to be "vetted." I mean, we can't just have anyone asking questions of our elected leaders. These people need to be investigated and exposed.

But the SecTreas? No big deal.

Those with power don't need to be vetted. Those who question those with power do. Obviously.


More on yet another story the media just doesn't seem very interested in.
