  •  Yes! Kudos to Soledad (8+ / 0-)

    I don't know who this Rep. Mica is, but he is an ignorant, sexist jerk. When Soledad tried to bring up Katherine Eban's findings, he kept deriding the Fortune investigative piece as if it were a piece of filler written in a weekly shopper. At one point, he condescendingly dismissed Eban (who has reported for the NY Times and national TV news shows), saying something like, "she seems like a very nice lady" but why should he care what she wrote in her little magazine (at one point he even claimed she had written a novel), when Eric Holder himself appeared to accept the gun-running claim. Mica seemed perturbed to have to answer questions related to something some woman had written and refused to address or give credibility to any of the points she had made or evidence she had printed.

      hard times, her husband almost died from senseless violence.  So asking tough questions is probably cake.
      Odd she started on prime time with the guy who went to Iraq and got blown up.  My bad i thought he was just a pretty face but the guy spoke chinese was in demand as a translator and pretty brilliant.   Still is.

      Politics is a contact sport
