Today’s quote comes to us from Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States under Barack Obama and, before that, enabler of the pardon Bill Clinton gave to Marc Rich (that, in itself, is worthy of several blogs, but we’ll do it at another time).
Mr. Holder, it seems, is considering a run for the White House in 2020. Honest, he is. And, in that connection, New York Times reporter Alex Burns asked what would inform his ultimate decision.
Mr. Holder’s response:
“If I were gonna do it, I’d do it because I think I would have concluded that maybe I could unify the country.”
Helloooo out there. Does anyone in the U S of A believe, or know anyone who believes, that Eric Holder, as divisive an Attorney General as we have ever had (and that’s saying a lot, given that the competition from both sides of the aisle is fierce), not to mention his role as Barack Obama’s fart-catcher, would “unify the country”?
You’d have about as much chance of finding someone who thinks Eric Holder is a unifier as you would of finding someone who thinks Donald Trump is a submissive.
I award Eric Holder Quote Of The Day honors for giving us a glimpse into the true meaning of the term, “self-inflicted delusion”.
