That’s it — they’re taking over!

holder-jr.jpgOk, look. Obama’s our next President, I get it. But does he have to stick in the faces over every redneck racist out there? It’s widely believed that he’s going to nominate Eric H. Holder, Jr. for his Attorney General if he there’s enough bipartisan support in the Senate.. And for those who have never heard of the man, who was the number 2 justice guy in the Clinton Administration, he’s, uhm … to steal a turn of phrase from my beloved Kevin & Bean show … he’s “president colored.” If he’s approved by Congress, Holder Jr. will be the first black AG. Which is all well and good, but the more important question is, what’s the guy’s story? I don’t know much about him, but I imagine we’ll all learn plenty in the coming months. And if Obama is doing what we all thought and hoped, and making the smart decision to surround himself with good folk, we’ll think that Holder Jr. is a fine choice.

how's the kool-aide, not too sweet?

You know, there's no "e" on the end of kool aid...you bastard.

Ooooohhh Snap!

If he goes through then it's Guantanamo Time for the Klan!"

"here comes the Judge, here comes the Judge"

Squeeeee!!!

Not to mention, he looks like Lando! I think Obama should pick his entire cabinet based off of how much they look like Star Wars characters, because that would be awesome!

I love how Republicans are always talking about drinking the Kool Aid. LMAO!

Surly-can you think for yourself, or do you only follow the Republican crowd.

I swear...if they told you to jump, you would ask how high!

Wow, so I guess the second someone questions Seth's opinion they get treated like an evil republican? Thats fair.

thank you for the correction. i shall revise my rhetorical question.

and just for all of y'all's info, i voted for obama. but just cuz i did, it doesn't necessarily mean i'm going to kiss his ass on every move he makes just because he made the move.

"Me," apparently it's not only republicans who don't think for themselves and just follow the crowd; a statement like "And if Obama is doing what we all thought and hoped, and making the smart decision to surround himself with good folk, we’ll think that Holder Jr. is a fine choice." is pretty crowd-following in my book, as is your assuming-i'm-a-republican-just-because-i'm-expressing-skepticism-regarding-a-certain-conclusion attitude.

it's seriously funny how all of you guys automatically jumped to the conclusion on my my political affiliation and called me unable to think for myself. i hope y'all feel so smart! (and by the way, i'm from nyc, born and bred, i just like saying y'all cuz i'm efficient. so you can keep any texas/southern bashing comments to yourself, too!)

Oh, and please scratch one of the "my"s. that was a typo. I can see you all jumping down my throat for that one too.

Well, here is my position on this: I fucking love kool-aid. Love it. Give me that sweet, sugary, totally-unnatural-flavored nectar! So when people can't seem to get it together and spell it correctly and give kool-aid the respect it fucking deserves...well, let's just say I get upset.

Forgive me for trying to keep some things sacred!

As far as politics are concerned: you can all go piss up a rope.

OH YEAH, BITCHES

I'm from NYC, but I don't say Y'all.

MiketheG - I agree with Seth about 99.9% of the time.
