Project Gunrunner/Operation Fast and Furious update: the other shoe drops edition


Frankly, this took a lot longer than expected.

Of course he did, because...

Attorney General Eric Holder accused his growing chorus of critics of racist motivations in a Sunday interview published in the New York Times. When reached by The Daily Caller Monday morning, the Department of Justice provided no evidence to support the attorney general’s claims.

Holder said some unspecified faction — what he refers to as the “more extreme segment” — is driven to criticize both him and President Barack Obama due to the color of their skin. Holder did not appear to elaborate on who he considered to make up the “more extreme segment.”

“This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder said, according to the Times. “Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

... that's all the miserable hack has left.

But Holder gives his critics far too much credit as incompetence, imperiousness and opaqueness are far more easily detectable traits common to both the President and Holder than their respective high yellow.

While Holder whines that this is just a game of gotcha, perhaps he can explain that to the family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, whose one year anniversary of his death where Fast and Furious guns were found was just last week and then again to the families of the 300 hundred Mexicans that have died because of Fast and Furious.

To use phraseology that Holder might relate to, "Accountability. When do we want it? Now."

Is it racism when they are killing Mexicans?

Holder's ethnocentrism is rearing its ugly head!

Well, we knew it had to come here eventually, didn't we?
