You know, Eric Holder… you better hope President Obama has you on his short list for pardons. Or that the President is even ready to put such a list together. But, hey, thanks for the material! The House is going to love having it.

I got this Rep. Darrell Issa appearance wrt Operation Fast & Furious on Face the Nation via email today, and it’s worth watching:

Issa complained in a conference call that, “there is ongoing cover up of a pattern of wrongdoing that can’t be explained by any ordinary people (who tried) to do the right thing but made a mistake.”
