Justice much as ever

Balladeer says goodbye to Eric Holder:

Holder will be remembered as the most corrupt Attorney General in history and as the man who did the most to violate the civil rights of American citizens since the late FBI Director J Edgar Hoover. Despite his misconduct Hoover got a building named after him so at some future date I guess we’ll see the “Eric Holder Sewage Plant” or some such construct. The Democratic and Republican crime gangs afford each other these little courtesies, after all.

There once was a referendum to name a San Francisco sewage plant — um, “water pollution control plant” — after George W. Bush. The measure was somehow rejected.

Also, because we must, Fark reports on Holder’s departure this way: “US Attorney General Eric Holder to resign, presumably to take care of unfinished business at Coruscant”.

    Someday a writer will need a name for an absolutely corrupt lawyer character and won’t even need to think about it.

    And just for the record, my most recently conceived corrupt lawyer character’s name is Morton Cabot, not Eric Holder. It’s still too soon.

    So just now I decided to Google “Morton Cabot.” I’d never even heard of the movie (untitled) until just now. I suppose I could change Cabbage’s first name to Mortimer…

    Actually, Mr. Contempt-of-Congress is decamping to a six-figure salary at a big D.C. law firm where he can continue to make political waves as a lobbyist. We have not seen the last of Mr. the-IRS-has-done-no-wrong.
