Holder: Republicans In Congress Are F--ked Up!

Holder got pissed at a Republican lawmaker.

It's about time I add Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert to the list of frequent mentions. The nut-job is a frequent agitator and is good friends with That Guy Who Helped Obama Win.

Gohmert is close with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Steve King (R-IA). These three are by far the most stupidest members of the House of Representatives.

He and Attorney General Eric Holder got into it over the week. Gohmert tried to dig into Holder by saying he doesn't give a fuck about the contempt charge brought to him by Congress.

The partisan vote on contempt was brought by Republicans in 2012. They were pushing for documents in the Fast & Furious scandal.

Holder being the top cop got heated.

HOLDER: I think what we promised to do is to provide you and your staff with, uh —

GOHMERT: Sir, I've read you what your department promised and it is inadequate, and I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight, so —

HOLDER: You don't want to go there, OK?

GOHMERT: I don't want to go there? About the contempt?

HOLDER: You should not assume that is not a big deal to me. I think that it was inappropriate, I think it was unjust. But never think that was not a big deal to me. Don't ever think that.
Dumbass Tea Party Republican Louie Gohmert of Texas.
Last May, Holder and Gohmert got into an argument at a House Judiciary Committee meeting. Gohmert, who's been consistently critical of the attorney general (if largely inconsistent on the reason for the critique), alleged that the Department of Justice had failed to prevent the Boston marathon bombing. Holder criticized Gohmert's characterization, and Gohmert, flustered, responded: "The attorney general will not cast aspersions on my asparagus." It was never clear what he meant or what he was trying to say, but the "asparagus" line became a running joke, with Gohmert as the target.

The hearing on Tuesday was perhaps more heated, as Gohmert questioned why he had not been provided with documents he requested — that, despite the House voting to hold Holder in contempt last June.

Holder on his part said that:

“And if you don’t believe that… you look at the way the Attorney General of the Untied States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me, forget that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
