Since we mentioned Eric Holder’s playground on last week’s Memory Lane, our staff figured that perhaps we should give the grand DOJ a little more love on today’s segment.
A man far above the race issue and one heck of a gun salesman, Eric Holder explained the perils of voting while black at the annual NAACP conference last summer. “Many of those without IDs would have to travel great distances to get them, and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them. We call those poll taxes.”
Yes, great distances by stagecoach, over rough terrain, following each day the path that the light touches, on merger rations of tree stars and the occasional Costco burrito.
Still not enough Eric Holder to get your morning off to a frustrated start?
Okay, well—– Holder recently dismissed critics of his and the rest of the Obama Administration’s performance in an interview with The New York Times (yes, remarkably they are still in print) by saying, “This is a way to get at the president, because of the way I can be identified with him… Both due to the nature of our relationship and you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”
Please reframe from adding any gay subtext to his, “Nature of our relationship” comment and just bask in the sight of that gigantic chip on Holder’s shoulder.
