The Jerk – Not the Movie

At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting recently Attorney General Eric Holder illustrated his total elitist, smart-assed self as he defended his time as the chief law enforcement officer in the United States. While defending his record he stated “I’ve stuck by my guns” in reference to the direction the Justice Department has taken on his watch.

Remember how, after Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords was shot that many Democrats, including the President, called for civility in Washington and beyond?
It was no accident, misspeak, or slip of the tongue that Holder used the specific phrase he chose. It was a callous, deliberate attempt by the number one officer of the land to be cute and apathetic in making his point even as a family tries to obtain information on the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry with a gun supplied in the Justice Department’s failed Fast and Furious debacle . Nobody’s laughing Mr. Attorney General.
