So much winning.
The IRS Scandal, Day 1684: Fallout From Allegations Of Tea Party Targeting Hampers IRS Oversight Of Nonprofits

I have a suggestion. How about you arrogant sods at the IRS take a step back, check your egos at the door, and maybe try doing a day's work for a day's pay? That always seemed to motivate ME.

Arrogant idiots.
