Eric Holder Just Became My Hero

I‘m not a big fan of Attorney General Eric Holder but he just became my hero. Remember a while back when Louis Gohmert, the dumbest man in Congress, accused Holder of “casting aspersions on my asparagus”? Here’s the video if you don’t remember it:

In a hearing on Tuesday, Holder ended his questioning by Gohmert by telling him “good luck with your asparagus.”

    Hero? Wow. Ok, so he must be ending the drug war, or charging corrupt police officers with crimes? Oh, he made a clever quip.

    I agree with theschwa – Holder is so far underwater that he’d have to shoot rainbows out his ass, and prosecute torturers and Wall Street criminals and corrupt cops – for me to think he’s anything but a waste of space.

    Yeah, one witty quip does not a hero make. Until he starts prosecuting war criminals, Wall Street criminals, and ending the drug war, I’ll cut him some slack. Until then…fuck that guy.

    Triple whoosh; I think that’s a record in this forum.

    Perhaps Ed was thinking purely on a comedic level. Handing a heckler his arse using his own words.

    Nope. Disliking it ! = failing to get it.

    Glenn Beck is claiming that “good luck with your asparagus” is a threat by Holder against Gohmert (Google it, I don’t “do” links).

    If Holder shot rainbows out of his ass I’d definitely warm up to the idea of kinda liking him. And the resulting whiteboard in Glenn Beck’s studio would be fucking epic.

    Someone call Acorn and Soros! We need to make this happen.
