Jimbo Himes hearts Holder

So the guy told a few itsy, bitsy lies, so what? He’s a Democrat!

Our representative to Congress thinks Eric Holder is perfectly within his rights to lie to Congress and then stonewall them.  “This is a nakedly political moment,” Himes said. “Never in the 240-year history of the United States has the Congress done this. Not during Watergate. Not during FDR. Frankly, it’s trading the remaining honor of this institution to score some political points.”
Well Jim, that’s just not true. Not even close to true. It is so false, in fact, that you’re either a complete bald faced liar or completely, completely ignorant of US history. There are those might think that either of those possibilities should be enough to bar you from political office, but not me: I think it proves that you are superbly qualified to be a politician.

A sample:

If he won’t resign, he should be impeached: NYT, 5/03/07 (AG Gonzales)

Former Attorney General says Bush should be impeached.

Here’s a list of every high ranking cabinet officer and elected officer against whom impeachment proceedings were initiated and/or accomplished. Everyone who’s anyone is there, from Buchanan to Bush, from War Department Secretaries to – ahem, Attorney Generals.

    I think the dumb liar meant to say Congress had never successfully impeached an AG, not that it has never been attempted. ;)

    For the record, the attempts were 1 Dem and 1 Rep, but only the attempt on Griffin Bell and the successful impeachment of Holder are politically motivated. /sarcasm.

    Isn’t the plural Attorneys – General? Sorry Chris, the editor in me made me do it.
