    The reichwing hatefest will begin in 3... 2... 1...

    And before any of you haters whine that "the libruls do it too", a quick glance through the comments sections of any article on the CNN ticker about a rethug being sick, injured or worse shines a glaring light on just how wrong you are.

    Then I'll call this one...despite sympathy for his current situation, and hope for a speedy recovery, I think Holder is an arrogant racist and has no place being Atty. Gen.

    Right, which makes them have to call it "ACORN" just so that everybody's on the same page. :)

    Dean – " I think Holder is an arrogant racist and has no place being Atty. Gen."

    So, how did you feel about W's AG, Gonzalez, who said torture is OK?

    Hope its No Prob, Holder.

    Good to know. We wouldn't want his health to become too political in the blogosphere.

    We can only hope that his entire medical team received their education as a direct result of affirmative action.
