This is so depressing. No, infuriating. On the day that Fortune magazine prints a long expose about "Fast & Furious" being, well, neither fast nor furious, various news outlets are reporting that some number of House Democrats will vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt.
The Fortune article details how its investigators learned that in fact, the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to "walk" to Mexico. Never happened. In fact, agents directly involved say:
They say they seized weapons whenever they could but were hamstrung by prosecutors and weak laws, which stymied them at every turn.Yet, these rabid Rs in the House will vote tomorrow on a criminal contempt of Congress charge against Eric Holder. The NRA is scoring this vote as part of their grade, so of course, some conservadems are jumping when the NRA pulls their strings. Bastards.
First, the Rs are just pursuing this because they are dying to impeach Obama for something, anything. This is as close as they can get before the election: go after the next highest ranking black man in the administration. Bastards.
NEXT, you know as well as I do that the flacid DCCC will give money to these weasel Democrats who jump on board with this vote. They're giving the Rs political cover to say it was a "bipartisan" effort, and then the DCCC will turn around and hand out the cash. Bastards.
And that's why I don't contribute to the DCCC anymore. I only contribute to individual candidates.
