The “creeping sense of remorse”
In a sparkling moment of inspiration, Eric Holder has acknowledged the “creeping sense of remorse” he’s felt as recent news stories have unfolded. For those that are unfamiliar with Mr Holder’s history… he’s not so much expressing doubts about the moral rectitude of his actions as much as a feeling the rest of us would describe as an “oh shit I’ll never get away with this what the hell was I thinking” moment.
Face it. That has nothing to do with conscience
Holder’s conscience hasn’t been heard from in so long that even he couldn’t locate it with a search warrant and all the imperial storm troopers he used to raid Gibson Guitars.
But in the wake of the news that, just like the IRS…
… Holder has been using his authority as Attorney General like a pair of brass knuckles to punish and intimidate political opponents of the Obama administration… he’s apparently decided to launch a charm offensive.
[Nice trick when you don’t actually have any charm.]
Plans to meet with the mainstream media
I’m sure some believe the object is to apologize for several actions that he’s personally taken (as well as personally denied taking while under oath), but more likely he’ll try to deflect blame onto others and evade knowledge of his own actions (much less *responsibility* for them), which has long been his modus operendi.
Meanwhile, I’ve heard Democrats that continue to defend Holder
… say it’s like banging their head against a brick wall, and they fear continuing to do so might cause permanent damage.
Don’t worry, guys… those brick walls can take a lotta punishment. :-)
