The Serial Pardon Advocate

Between the Marc Rich pardon and that of FALN terrorists, the question isn’t whether Eric Holder ought to be denied confirmation as the next Attorney-General. The question is why this nomination should be allowed to last even one more day and why the President-elect has not yet pulled the plug on it.

Don’t believe me? Then read this. As Andy McCarthy notes:

We’ve heard a lot the last few years from Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats about how shameful it is for an Attorney General to “politicize” the Justice Department; to buck the views of professional, career prosecutors; and to engage in “secrecy” by withholding from Congress the administration’s deliberations on important policy matters.  Were they serious?

Well? Were they?
