I’m not sure if Attorney General Eric Holder ever heard Connie Francis sing Who’s Sorry Now?
But apparently he’s now singing it in the shower.
For whatever that’s worth.
As wordsmith Stephen King once typed, “Sorry is the Kool-Aid of human emotions. True sorry is as rare as true love.”
So we could say that Holder is swallowing the Kool-Aid.
We could also say that Holder lacks the steel in the spine that gave John Wayne his swagger.
The Duke once said, “Never apologize, mister. It’s a sign of weakness.”
Holder said he “felt a creeping sense of personal remorse” after reading the Washington Post’s report on a Justice Department probe of Fox News reporter James Rosen.
That, combined with the news that the DOJ seized phone records from Associated Press reporters, has led Holder to question the current guidelines for leak investigations and his own personal decisions.
It’s a shame that Holder’s first name isn’t Brian because then the freedom of the press would lie in the eye of the B. Holder.
