In a tiny glimpse of the distant planet she is now on, compare this sentence from her latest conspiracy-theory IRS column:

This is the moment things go forward or stall.

with this missive from something called reality:

The Internal Revenue Service’s inspector general said Thursday that he was expanding his investigation of I.R.S. treatment of political groups that applied for tax-exempt status to see if liberal groups were treated the same way as conservative ones. Under attack from Democrats over his earlier inquiries, the inspector general, Russell George, said there was new evidence to study in the controversy about the handling of tax-exempt applications from Tea Party and other groups. The new evidence suggests that the I.R.S. used not only conservative-sounding keywords to select certain applications for extra scrutiny, but also liberal-sounding words like “progressive.”

Yes it’s time to move forward – to expose what a huge non-scandal this always was.
