So the House has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress (kind of like 91% of the American public, in many ways), for his perceived stonewalling on the “Fast and Furious” scandal. You know, the one that’s apparently waaaaaaaaaaay worse than Watergate, and certainly worse than, say, giving our enemies weapons. In the real world, it was a legitimate law enforcement tactic that, while not well-thought out, certainly wasn’t illegal.
The House had been in negotiations with the White House and the DoJ to prevent this, and likely they would have, had it not been for today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Obamacare. As it stands, it’s hard to see this as anything other than the Republicans being bitchy that they lost a round and trying to get revenge.
