Kind of OT, but I’ve been thinking about “Fast and Furious”. What kind of idiot would kill a border agent, then leave his swell new assault rifle with the body ? Did I miss something ?

Alan — From what I gather, it’s SOP for Mexican killers to leave their weapons at the crime scene, so they aren’t caught with them. Perhaps Mexican law enforcement doesn’t have an extensive fingerprint database to link killers to weapons.
Contempt? What’s the point? Does that remove him from office? No. Does it put him in jail? No. Does it fine him money out of his own pocket? no. it doesn’t even force him to pay exhorbitant legal fees from a defense fund gathered together by voluntary donors (bribery). Holder is right that it is a pointless political move. But at least we got this pointless political gesture to balance the books against the largest usurpation of personal liberty in the history of the USA.
