MEMBER DIARY

Pathetic – UPDATE

Per NBC, Eric Holder has been confirmed as the new Attorney General. The vote was 75-21. The roll isn’t available yet.

I guess John Edwards was right, there are two Americas; one America for tax evading rich Democrats to attain high office, and the one for the rest of us who have to pay for it.

UPDATE: Link to the roll call vote updated above.  Here’s the list of the Republicans voting for Holder:

Alexander (R-TN)
Bennett (R-UT)
Bond (R-MO)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hatch (R-UT)
Isakson (R-GA)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lugar (R-IN)
McCain (R-AZ)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL)
Snowe (R-ME)
Specter (R-PA)
Voinovich (R-OH)

Lots of disappointment.

It’s funny how Arlen “I’m A Member Of S.P.E.C.T.R.E.” Specter was so gung ho about getting answers from Holder on the Marc Rich pardon (for tax evasion, no less), and then he votes for him anyway. 

Re-read Andrew McCarthy’s great piece on Holder and what the new AG did know about Rich, things that Senate Republicans saw fit to ignore.
