Famous last words from a tolerant Democrat.
Senate Democrats are rallying to Attorney General Eric Holder’s defense.
They argue Republicans are wrong to suggest he is overly partisan, or that he is more uncooperative with Congress compared to past attorneys general.
“I guess they don’t like anybody who disagrees with them,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “He’s a strong and smart advocate for a different point of view.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a senior member of the panel, also stood up for Holder.
“I simply do not accept that. I’ve been here long enough to know,” she said. “He is less partisan than some, that’s for sure.”
Um, OK. So just to be clear, Republicans are the forces of intolerance while Democrats would never wage war on anyone who disagrees with them, right?
