Fox News holds AG in Contempt!

Breaking News: did you know that Fox News and paranoid talk radio hosts now have the ability to hold people in contempt of Congress? Yes the little know 28th Amendment let’s angry, frequently-divorced millionaires hold anyone they like in contempt before our august Congress. They just have to call someone a “slut” and presto! They’re in contempt.

Roger Ailes and his buddies will likely get to exercise this little known freedom shortly, as Attorney General Eric Holder has refused to turn over documents related to a botched ATF operation involving American firearms being smuggled into Mexico, meaning he’ll like be held in contempt. Now, only members of the conservative media thought that the operation, named “Fast and Furious” because the Attorney General is a BIG Vin Deisel fan, was a scandal. Literally no one else thought the embarassing incident amounted to anything.

Cue the Republican takeover of the House in 2010 and suddenly Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Darrell “Used car salesman” Issa took up Fox News’ unheaded battle cry and started grilling the Attorney General getting us to where we are now.

The Obama Administration for it’s part is now citing executive privledge, saying that it will not release the information Republican Inquisitors Investigators asked for in an attempt to stop contempt proceedings. Matt Drudge even has a charming photo of Obama and Nixon, that famous executive privledge lover, spliced together. Of course the Bush administration claimed executive privledge six times in eight years. But that was different! George Bush was a Republican.

Of course, being the chances of the Sargent at Arms of the House of Representatives arresting Eric Holder are about as high as say, anyone knowing what the fuck the Sargent at Arms of the House of Representatives is. Still this seems like a VERY worth while endeavor, after all, why should the committee investigating how to stop border violence be dealing with stopping border violence when there’s an Attorney General they could be arresting?
