While being interviewed on CNN on Sunday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said he believes that the Internal Revenue Service had a written policy that was specifically "targeting people who were opposed to the president."

And if it was written, he elaborated, we, the American public, who give many, many shits about whether the IRS was targeting political groups, should be able to see it. That is, if the thing he believes exists (which he has no idea whether it does or not) actually exists.

"Well, we keep hearing the reports and we have several specifically worded items saying who was being targeted. In fact, one of the bullet points says those who are critical of the president," Rand told CNN's Candy Crawley. Bullet points on a memo that's real?

He continued, "So I don't know if that comes from a policy, but that's what's being reported in the press and reported orally. I haven't seen a policy statement, but I think we need to see that." Ah, I would like to see this thing whose existence I just made up.

One of those things politicians make up like a list of 205 Communist members of the State Department, or a secret plan to merge with Canada and Mexico. One of those documents only bullshitters can see. Ah.
