The Fast And The Spurious Forever: Eric Holder’s Excellent Adventure

Although it strains credulity farther than a White House Press briefing, Eric Holder remains the Attorney General of the United States. Furthermore, despite Holder’s central role in a scandal that involved shockingly bad decision-making, an overt hostility to the Bill of Rights, Mexican narcoterrorists and the murders of two Federal agents and an unknowable number of innocent Mexican nationals, Holder continues to enjoy the full faith and credit of the President of the United States. Granted, the full faith and credit of the biggest buffoon to sit in the Oval Office’s big boy chair since Jimmy Carter “lusted in his heart” is about as valuable as a fistful of Greek drachmae. Nonetheless, the fact that Holder hasn’t been reduced to advertising on bus stop benches for slip-and-fall cases is an affront to every American wise enough to recognize just how far down the rabbit hole Obama has dragged us in three short years.
Late last week, Holder returned to the hot seat in the chambers of Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Confronted with a mountain of evidence proving almost everyone in the Department of Justice chain of command north of the guy who cleans up the cigarette butts President Barack Obama leaves behind after his visits knew about the disastrous “gunwalking” Operation Fast and Furious at least a year before any details of the scandal came to light, Holder stuck to his — forgive me — guns.
Under pressure from a righteously outraged Issa, Holder continued to pretend he was on the straight and narrow. “We believe that we have responded to the subpoena,” Holder said. At the moment he made that remark, Holder’s Department of Justice had failed to comply with nearly two dozen aspects of the subpoena in question. Responded? Perhaps. Complied — which Attorneys General are legally bound to do in the instance of Congressional subpoenas — hardly. Of course, Holder is an accomplice of Obama, who has made it clear that he is well above such irritants as Constitutional dictates and the separation of powers.
