“You were just held in criminal contempt of Congress, Eric Holder. What are you going to do next?”
“I’m goin’ to Disney World!”
Seriously. That’s exactly what he did. Red Alert Politics:
On the day in which the U.S. House of Representatives has determined that Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions are egregious enough to warrant a criminal contempt vote, the AG has skipped town and headed to … Disney World.
According to the National Journal’s Daybook, Holder will be addressing the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) during a convention at a Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
As if it’s not bad enough that Nancy Pelosi and Jay Carney can’t even get Brian Terry’s name right. As if it’s not bad enough that John Dingell turned his back on Terry’s family and is now calling them liars. As if it’s not bad enough that Nancy and her dumb pals staged a walkout during the vote. While it was all happening, this corrupt, lying clown was skipping off to Disney World.
As Ed Driscoll points out:
The optics of an AG going to Disney World while simultaneously being voted in contempt of Congress by a bipartisan majority would be brutal for a Republican administration. Good thing the Obama administration knows that old media are firmly in the tank for them.
Back in the old days, that would’ve been enough.
Back in the old days.
