Here’s one of the more ridiculous exchanges from today’s congressional hearing in regards to why the former IRS commissioner would have visited the White House 118 times in two years:

Virginia Democrat Gerry Connolly: There would be many reasons you might be at the White House. What would be some of the reasons you might be at the White House?

Former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman: Um, the Easter Egg Roll with my kids. Questions about the administrability of tax policy they were thinking of. Our budget. Us helping the Department of Education streamline application processes for financial aid.

Reason number one for why he visited the White House 118 times between 2010 and 2011 was the Easter Egg Roll? It’s almost like he’s daring everyone to dig deeper.

Keep an eye on the woman behind Shulman’s left shoulder after he says “Easter Egg Roll” — I don’t think she’s buying it:

In fairness to Shulman, the IRS had been tipped off that the Easter Bunny at the roll might lean right.

During the same hearing, Massachusetts Dem. Stephen Lynch ripped Shulman and the inconsistency in his testimony to shreds. Michelle documented one of the finer moments:

Lois Lerner, who was in charge of the unit that targeted conservative groups, took the 5th. Well, took the 5th only after making an opening statement, which could cause her some problems.
