    Golly, that’s a pretty picture!

    So, I woke up to the radio alarm this morning (set to the local conservative talk station). . . and they were going through the list of all of what’s been breaking open in the press lately, and I thought (muzzily, since it was very pre-caffeine) “Hey, is this finally the break in the media firewall we’ve been waiting for for the past 5 + years?”

    And apparently, theres more to come, so that’ll be fun. Do you think it’s time to break out the popcorn? I’m thinking, it might possibly be. . .

    Video: Jon Stewart notably unimpressed with Obama’s executive ability

    Wow. Your outrage is a little too late, Jon.

    • zmalfoy says:

      Yeah. I wanna take him by the shoulders, maybe smack him a few times, and say, very loudly, “Told you so!”

      Sooner or later they turn on the lame duck and shift their allegiance to the next liberal front runner. It’s just early that’s all.

    I’m watching Holder lie and squirm during his testimony in front of the Judiciary Committee. He’s such an effin’ slime ball. “I don’t know.” “I don’t recall.” “I don’t have that information.” Blah. Blah. Blah. LIAR! LIAR! LIAR!

    • freedom1781 says:

      Sequestration… Every damn Dem is bringing up sequestration. Puuh-leezeee.

    • freedom1781 says:

      Now, Holder’s using the Obama-approved “I only know about the case based on what I read in the newspaper” excuse–when confronted about the HHS scandal.

    • freedom1781 says:

      BOOM—Rep Bachus from GA just asked Holder what date did Holder recuse himself regarding the AP phone record subpoenas and did he recuse himself to someone in writing or orally. Holder is squirming and talking in circles. Priceless.

      Dear Lord, Sheila Jackson-Lee is talking now.

      • Don’t listen directly to her voice for more than a few seconds. Your sanity is at stake. If you have to, wait to read the transcript later. 😯

        • freedom1781 says:

          I’m really enjoying this hearing! Holder just called Issa’s behavior in Congress appalling; he didn’t like being grilled by Issa so he had to lash out. Hilarious.

    • freedom1781 says:

      Issa is a badass! He just played a recording of a phone call, which I could barely understand. Holder squirmed and stuttered when Issa asked him a series of questions. I’m having a hard time following this exchange, so I’ll have to review it later.

      Oh crap, Sheila Jackson-Lee is coming to Holder’s defense regarding the recording.

    • freedom1781 says:

      Rep. Forbes is bringing up Fast and Furious. Oh boy!

      • freedom1781 says:

        Ugh. Rep. Hank Johnson is speaking. I wonder if he’ll ask Holder if he could imagine a world without balloons.

    Holder: I can’t remember when I recused myself from the AP investigation, and I know I didn’t do it in writing

    If you actually wondered why barry wanted the student loan program brought in house, this might just answer the question.

    Holder Gets Testy During Congressional Hearing, Tells Issa His Conduct Is “Unacceptable And Shameful” – Update: Video Added…

  8. freedom1781 says:

    Wow. Holder just called Rep. Jordan a liar for saying that Lois Lerner lied to Congress about her involvement in the IRS scandal.

  9. freedom1781 says:

    Oh, goody! Rep. Gowdy is grilling Holder. This will be entertaining.
