Fails to Meet Low Bar

By on 4.13.14 | 12:08PM

It was some years ago, I can't remember the periodical it was in, but the feature was humorous snippets from military officers' fitness reports. The most amusing was: “This officer consistently fails to meet the low standards he sets for himself.”

I couldn’t help but think of this screw-up when listening to Attorney General Eric “Stonewall” Holder whine that he is being mistreated as AG because he’s black. This, of course, is nonsense. If asked to name a worse or more political AG than Holder, I might be able to do it, but it would take me longer to come up with the name than one of Holder’s “investigations.” 

The only comfort red-blooded Americanos can find here is the knowledge that this is just an early part of the Democrats’ turn-out-the-vote effort for 2014, and the AG we are stuck with is not deluded enough to believe this. A fair fraction of Holder’s fan base is, however, another story.
