Since this came up in the debate, here you go. Eric Holder, talking about the need to brainwash people on gun control:

“We just have to be repetitive about this. It’s not enough to have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday. We have to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
(quote via Reason)
If there is a single thing that I love about our current world, it’s that we have this vast, comprehensive, and easily-accessible universal library of video footage shot of people who never dreamed that their remarks would someday show up in a vast, comprehensive, and easily-accessible universal library of video footage. Eric Holder would never have dared say this in 2015, of course. And in 1996 he’d have looked at you confusedly if you had told him that just anybody would in the future be able to just yank his comments from CSPAN and be able to show it to everybody else.
