Moron of the Month – US AG Eric Holder
It wasn’t a good week for Attorney General Eric Holder who earned May’s Moron of the Month award.
After spending time on last weekend’s Sunday talk shows bashing the new Arizona illegal immigration laws, Mr Holder was asked by rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) about his plans for federal action against Arizona. (story here from Daily Caller) The video of this exchange is pure comedy platinum as Holder ultimately admits that he hasn’t even read the bill – all 10 pages of it. How the bloody hell can you bash something you haven’t taken the time to read – it’s only 10 pages for cripes sake.
Despite his consistent criticism of the recently passed (and recently amended) Arizona anti-immigration law, Attorney General Eric Holder admitted to the House Judiciary Committee yesterday that he hasn’t even read it.
“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Holder said Thursday, in response to questions from Rep. Ted Poe (R – TX).
The law is only ten pages long.
“I have not had a chance to — I’ve glanced at it,” Holder stammered.
Last weekend, Holder warned on national television that the law “has the possibility of leading to racial profiling” and claimed that it may be unconstitutional.
“We could potentially get on a slippery slope where people will be picked on because of how they look as opposed to what they have done,” Holder said on ABC’s “This Week.”
