Eric Holder Jumps the Shark of Insanity

Eric_Holder_93-300x249Still in an acute state of butthurt from his moderately firm questioning by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert yesterday, U.S. Attorney Eric Holder insisted in a speech to the National Action Network that he and President Obama have been treated so badly by this “ugly and divisive” Congress, that no administration has ever seen anything like it.  Oh, really?  Said Holder:

I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me — you look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me, forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?

Despite an “unprecedented” number of scandals that have everything to do with this Attorney General and this President, that are entirely of their own making, along with a thoroughly unusual level of tardy and disinterested questioning by an ineffective Congress, Eric Holder is outraged by this “treatment.” Is he unaware of the trials and criminal prosecution of nearly the entire administration of President Nixon? Is this a sign that Holder will call next for Congress to be disbanded, since he is so sorely mistreated?

As Erika Johnsen of HotAir pointed out yesterday: “What attorney general has ever been treated this way? Wrong question, ‘buddy.’”

  1. And how the hell does this work? The House Committee “voted along party lines.”

    Did these Democrats not take an oath? How is this woman NOT guilty of contempt of Congress by any “party-relative” argument? How do these guys get away with this kind of dereliction of duty? She’s not being railroaded. She’s refusing to testify to save her hide. Don’t they have a responsibility to vote the obvious? When did this become total partisan war? But we’re told we have to “compromise?” FUCK that.

      I know that you are not asking a rhetorical question here but you know the answer already. The sad part is that none of those in public office today will ever hold any of their counterparts up to the standard they supposedly live up to. And sadly, we know why.
