Eric Holder accidentally tells the truth
Attorney General Eric Holder testified, to the House Judiciary Committee, while nervously scratching his brow, that the decisions of the Justice Department "are done in a political way". Most likely, he meant to say "in an apolitical way", and tomorrow we shall be assured that he "mis-spoke" (in a Freudian way).
"I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked had he read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.
When asked by Rep.Ted Poe, R-Texas, how he could have constitutional concerns about a law he has not read, Holder said: "Well, what I've said is that I've not made up my mind. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talking to people who are on the review panel...looking at the law."
