Holder says he’s not going anywhere
Source: The Washington Post

He has been a focus of criticism and a longtime target of congressional Republicans, one of whom recently called for his resignation.

But Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. made it clear Monday that he’s not going anywhere.

In a speech at the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, he defended his two-year tenure and sketched out his priorities going forward, vowing to fight terrorism, violent crime and financial fraud.

“Without question, the results that we’ve achieved have been historic,” Holder told more than 150 Justice employees in the department’s Great Hall. “But I am not yet satisfied.’’

4. Probably the most ineffectual AG in my lifetime
Giving war criminals and Wall Street Con men a pass, while vigorously prosecuting more whistleblowers and pot growers. I hate this guy.

16. I think
We're going to have to settle for congestive heart failure (ironic) and early onset Alzheimers (also ironic). Who knew the guy with no apparent heart would have CHF and the guy with no apparent brain would end up with a brain disease? I don't think either will see a jail cell but neither will have easy retirements.

12. A speed bump on the road forward


If you look hard, way in the distance you can see Holder, like flattened roadkill baked in the sun. He slows down the haves and have-mores as they try to figure out what it was before it got squashed.
