Holder 1, Gohmert 0

I’m not a big fan of Attorney General Eric Holder. In fact, I think he’s been pretty much a disaster. The DOJ’s position on about a dozen issues has been flagrantly opposed to civil liberties. But this exchange with batshit crazy Rep. Louis Gohmert is simply awesome. Holder gives an entirely coherent answer to Gohmert’s claim that the FBI didn’t do a thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev brothers due to “political correctness” and Gohmert simply has a meltdown. The funny thing is that the chair of the committee, Bob Goodlatte, is a very conservative Republican himself and he’s trying to get Gohmert to stop. And at the end, Gohmert actually says that Holder has “cast aspersions on my asparagus.”
