Good Riddance... bad rubbish.

The contemptible Eric Holder is resigning his post as US Attorney General.

Holder was a net liability to the Obama administration; Republicans hate him, as do gun owners and even reporters. If he had remained in office he would have increased turnout by Republicans in November, eager to flip the Senate and impeach his sorry ass. I think he probably saw the handwriting on the wall, and didn't want to be the first US Attorney General impeached and removed from office, in addition to being the first one to be held in contempt of Congress.

It will be interesting to see whether there will be an effort by the Justice Department to be more open in the days before the election: stop blocking Fast & Furious documents, less opposition to voter ID efforts, Benghazi, etc. If the interrim AG makes a good-faith effort to work with Congress, it will probably suppress some of the GOP turnout that was motivated by hatred of Holder.
