Gerry Connolly gets it exactly right on this: a) this is a “sad moment…for the Congress,” b) this is “akin to a kangaroo court,” in which “the verdict is decided in advance” and in which facts are distorted, selectively filtered out, etc; c) this is character assassination, badgering against Attorney General Eric Holder; d) Republicans refuse to talk about something that would actually help matters, like cracking down on assault weapons being readily available to drug cartels, etc.; and e) this is demeaning and purely political, nothing other than a Republican attempt to try and damage President Obama politically. All true, all pathetic, all typical Republican behavior nowadays.
