Eric Holder’s Biggest Fan
The eruption of alleged malfeasance by the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder should not be a surprise to anyone. This man was a deeply flawed candidate for the post and was cheered on by Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar. This is not a tale of guilt by association or partisan sniping.

Pathetic – UPDATE
