Yes, really.

At IRS hearing this morning, crapweasel IRS acting commish Steve Miller snottily says the word “targeting” of conservatives is “pejorative.”

Like President Obama and Eric Holder, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller doesn’t know nuthin’ … except that the word “targeting” is beyond the pale when used to describe the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. In testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, he called it a “loaded term” and a “pejorative.”

“I’m going to take issue with the concept of targeting, because it’s a loaded term.” – Miller

Steven Miller on the word/IRS “targeting”: “I think it is a term that implies something that didn’t exist here.”

Video here:

Miller also claimed the IRS’ only mistake was wanting to be more efficient.

#IRS Head Miller: “I don’t believe partisanship played a role here, foolish mistakes in workload selection.” Efficiency not politics xcuse

Miller says that “foolish mistakes were made by people trying to be more efficient.” Says was a mistake, not act of partisanship. Unreal.

Who did the, ahem, targeting? He can’t say, but he knows the term is loaded and that’s what matters.

When asked by Kevin Brady who targeted groups, #IRS‘s Miller can’t answer specifically who did targeting. Describes it as a “loaded term.”

Who was responsible for targeting these groups? Miller “I take exception 2 targeting because it is a loaded term.” .. I have no names 4 you”

The IRS wasn’t targeting conservative groups? Has this guy been taking clown lessons from Jay Carney?

Crapweasel IRS commish Steve Miller defends witch hunt vs #teaparty by whining about “pejoratives.” CRAPWEASEL is pejorative. So’s assclown.

If “lookout” list does not equal targeting what does? RT @bccohan: Sometimes, the truth hurts. This was targeting. #IRShearing

If IRS picked on groups w/”gay,” “women,” or “civil rights” in their names, no one could get away with saying “targeting is a loaded term.”

Rep Kevin Brady: “Targeting is a loaded word” Child, please

— Eliana Johnson (@elianayjohnson) May 17, 2013

The revenge of PC, right there: “Sure, I murdered and cannibalisedhim, but, please, ‘murder’ and ‘cannibalised’ are pejorative terms.”

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) May 17, 2013

Targeting is not a pejorative term. It’s a pejorative action.

— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) May 17, 2013

OK, so if Miller objects to “targeting,” what’s the acceptable term?

Regulatory hugs RT @brianfaughnan: ‘Targeting is a pejorative term.’ OK, what’s a better term for this?
