Well that didn’t take long. Honestly, I assumed it would be MSNBC’s Chris Tingle who would go down this path first. Oh well, I was close enough. Yesterday I made the prediction that sooner or later someone on the Left would make the charge that Republicans held Eric Holder in contempt of Congress because they’re racist:
How long before we hear the following from Dingy Harry: “He’s not King Barack, He’s President Barack”? I won’t hold my breath. I’m also waiting for the obligatory charge from someone on the Left that the contempt charge against Holder was racist, or something. On that I doubt I’ll have to hold my breath very long at all.
Today, Nancy Pelosi complied:
“They’re going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states,” Pelosi told reporters during her press briefing today. “This is no accident, it is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of Republicans.
Pelosi denied that Operation Fast and Furious is the real cause of the investigation and contempt charge. “These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote,” she said of her congressional colleagues. “It is connected. It’s clear as can be. It’s not only to monopolize his time, it’s to undermine his name.”
Let me see if I can decipher Pelosi’s latest wisdom. Republicans really don’t care about the people killed by the Obama Administration’s ill-conceived Operation Fast and Furious, nor are they concerned by the fact that Team O is obviously hiding something. No sirree, Bob! “It’s as clear as can be” that what they really want to do is take down Eric Holder as part of a diabolically ingenious plot to suppress minority turnout in November. But the brilliant Pelosi, of course, has the mental acuity to see right through this nefarious Republican subterfuge. You gotta get up pretty early in the morning to fool Nancy Pelosi.

And this a mere 24 hours after Sheriff Pelosi averred she “could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day” and thrown him in the “Capitol prison”. I’m tempted to think that, just maybe, Pelosi is succumbing to Alzheimer’s or some other mentally debilitating disease. However, that would imply that she made sense in the past. But she never really did. Dennis MIller, I think, has it about right. Anyway, it’s only Thursday, my friends, and I can’t wait to see what America’s crazy Aunt has in store for us the remainder of the week. She’s on a roll.
