Sarah Palin says it’s time for Eric Holder to go … and Huffington Post and Tavis Smiley agree

It’s no surprise that Sarah Palin would take to Twitter to demand Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation over what Roger Ailes called “the government’s efforts to criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter to a Federal judge as a “co-conspirator” in a crime.”

But has anyone checked the weather reports for Hell lately? Icy!

That’s what the Huffington Post homepage looked like on Thursday night.


And HuffPo isn’t the only lefty media org saying it’s time for the AG to scram.

When you’ve lost these guys …


NBC: Eric Holder signed off on criminal investigation of Fox News’ James Rosen

  • rivers

    Hey, just because he signed off on them doesn’t mean he knew anything about them (isn’t that right, Hilary?) He must get a million cases like this a day in his email, he can’t be expected to remember every news reporter from a network that Obama for five years has consistently tried to criminalize in the court of public opinion that he has charged with espionage.

  • Michael Anderson (WB)

    It feels wrong to agree with HuffPo.

    • lainer51

      I know, I just took a long, hot shower!

    • TomJB

      But hey, it’s bipartisan at least! Lol

    • PiperScott1949

      You’re not agreeing with HuffPo, rather HuffPo is agreeing with you. Who’s the dog and who’s the tail?

  • mdtljt

    While it’s good to see the Sycophant Brigade FINALLY acknowledge what lots of us have known for a loooooong time, Tavis Smiley’s use of the term “black folk” is what jumped out at me. Not saying I’m surprised given his patented rhetoric, but if he wants to EMPOWER “black folk” using an archaic, dismissive, and dare I say racist term ain’t the way to do it…oh wait…he DOESN’T want to empower them…in that case, way to go, Tavis!! What a pompous ass…

  • capisce

    Holder’s exit should be fast and furious.
    The Philly Black Panthers and those poor, starving Gitmo detainees could use some in-house counsel.

  • Abiss

    The only way the AG should ‘go’ is in stripey pajama’s and leg irons.

  • alanstorm

    The HuffPo are slow, but they did eventually recognize what’s been obvious to the rest of us for…well, only about 5 years.

    The sad part is that it indicates that they’re getting quicker on the uptake.

    • TocksNedlog

      It’s the AOL factor.

    • Junie3

      Bet you they were invited to the White House closed door media meeting a few days ago. It’s being set up, put a fire out. Benghazi is flaming though.

  • Garth Haycock

    Let’s be honest about this; the leftist propaganda machines of Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Esquire, etc., want Holder gone because he got caught, not because he was targeting conservative media. They want someone in there who will be able to do what Holder has done without getting busted.

    • CatHerder

      A little cynical, but most likely correct.

    • lillymckim

      Right on! Holder can’t be allowed to keep making “THEM” LOOK BAD!

  • BlahBlah

    He will go alright. Kicking and screaming.

    • CatHerder

      And maybe naming names?

      • BlahBlah

        We can only wish. I honestly don’t see him resigning. These people are so disgustingly arrogant (see Lerner) that they really really don’t think they did anything wrong cuz self righteousness. The only way this clown goes is if Barry kicks him out. The whole bus thing, who knows maybe he will.

        • lillymckim

          Their arrogance, self importance and elitism just drips off their tongues.

      • lillymckim

        Nah he will get the big payoff like the Good Rev Of Hate Wright did.
        The ole’ You cover me I cover you money.

    • bidentime

      Hey! That works for me!

    • Squirrel!

      Promotion time. Maybe they’ll kick ol’ Joe Biden out & promote Holder to VP.

      • Adela Wagner

        Well there is that SUPREME COURT wet dream, but darn, there’s also those confirmation hearings, and that “pesky devil” Ted Cruz to deal with….maybe just Admin leave WITH PAY till it blows over and Hilary can bring him back into the fold. What a web they have woven. I pray it will all be devoured by a big ol Conservative Praying Mantis.(see “pesky devil” above)

  • Garym

    He should have been asked to resign after letting the New Black Panther’s voter intimidation case to get dropped.

    • Squirrel!

      Or after targeting states for purging their voter rolls of dead ppl & felons or after Fast & Furious….
      But NO, let’s allow him to investigate hisself for the media scandal… only makes sense, right?

      • Garym

        I would expect no less from this administration.

        • TocksNedlog

          Isn’t that their ad slogan?
          “Obama Administration — Expect Less”

  • Steve_J

    Holder didn’t do any of this without approval from higher up.

    • lillymckim

      True both guilty so who goes first?

      • TocksNedlog

        You can’t fire Soros.

  • michael s

    I STAND WITH ATTY GEN ERIC HOLDER. He has been targetted ever since he was announced for the position. Tim Geitner got less scrutiny. We know why. Normally Tavis is called a race baiter,now he’s cool with you. Normally HuffPO is called a liberal garbage rag,now you’re cool with it. Again we know why . As for your unemployed lightweight Sarah, if he were to resign would that be considered QUITTING? I wonder why she’s familiar with quitting?

    • Wrathful_Brunette

      You forgot your sarc tag. Like this..

    • lillymckim

      Sarah Palin left public office on her “Own Terms” she wasn’t run out of office for high crimes and or as this White House refers to them misdemeanors.

    • Randy W

      You stand with the strong unlimited power of the federal government to secretly track and harass private citizens and the free press? Secondly, I think twitchy was just pointing out the irony of the group that wants Holder to go, not cheerleading Tavis. Sorry if you were just being sarcastic.

    • J. Cox

      And you wonder why people think you eat “brownies”(special ones) all day long.

      In other news…the Palin quitting meme died last year.Lets at least try to be honest…oh wait,I are that racist fella that hates white women…carry on then.

    • Debbie Finch Sikes

      BLESS YOUR HEART. How proud you are to ‘stand’ with Holder. Makes me throw up a little. You should be STANDING for the individuals rights of all the citizens of the United States. In his position he should be scrutinized – all the things he has done since he has been in office are inexcusable. He doesn’t have to be compared to ANYone else – he has sucked @ his job all by himself. I read the Huffpost just like a lot of other politically led press – and repost when they actually are correct. The general public has been calling for Holder to leave for a long time. Race and politics has nothing to do with it for me – he has performed illegal activities and gives no excuses – he has been ‘sheltered’ by the POTUS and I’m sure that is only because he was his ‘pick.’ Do you think that anyone in their right mind would think he has done a good job? Just fast and furious alone should have made him resign.

      • ChiTownGal

      Hey Moron do your homework! I dont hear the quitter meme for Obami and Killary!

      • michael s

        Its unapplicable.

        • $7610427

          Yes…because they completed their duly elected terms… /s

    • Corey Dennison

      Of course you stand with him. You incompetent morons have to stick together.

    • Timbet

      Sarah Palin served 32 out of 48 months the same percentage that Obama served of his Senate term (not including the two-year break he spent campaigning) and accomplished everything she set out to do in that time.

      After Sarah Palin accepted John McCain’s offer to run for vice president and became the left’s (media) most attacked and vilified person she returned to Alaska to find a never-ending assault of frivolous ethics complaints paralyzing her ability to govern the state.

      She resigned because she recognized the cost that the frivolous ethics complaints were having on her state , and she saw how much of her staff’s time and her own time were forced to deal with those issues.

      That entire campaign of BS lawsuits was meant to do nothing but hamstring the governor’s office and bankrupt Sarah Palin.

      She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

      Those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million; Sarah Palin had over $500,000 dollars in legal fees.

      These lawsuits were filed by activists whose goal was to bog down her administration with lawsuits and paperworks & to bankrupt her middle class family. Sarah Palin was responsible for her own legal fees due to the ethic laws at the time. She & her staff were spending 80% of their time defending lawsuits & dealing with FOIA requests. No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed.

      Sarah Palin knew that for the sake of her state it would be best if she stepped aside from the governorship. She resigned so the state could move forward.

      In an article Sarah Palin said:

      “I said, ‘Enough. Political adversaries and their political friends in the media will not destroy my State, my administration, nor my family. Enough.’ I knew if I didn’t play their game any longer, they could not win. I would not retreat, I would instead reload, and I would fight for what is right from a different plane.”

      She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

      Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts.

      She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

      Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election.

    • $7610427

      Oh no…we still think huff n puff is a rag and Smiley is a race baiter, but even a blind hog can find an acorn from time to time. As for Holder being a target…isn’t that kinda like targeting conservatives…which you seem to be okay with?

    • Section 9

      Tavis isn’t stupid. He wants this to stop with Holder, that’s why he wants Holder to go.

    • Andrea3000

      I, for one, was pretty hard on “Turbo Tax Tim”. He’s just a tax cheat and a liar and making him the Secretary of the Treasury was the height of hypocrisy .. and then came Secretary Kerry. But back to AG Holder; he pisses on the constitution every day.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    BRB, I believe I just saw a pig outside of my 17th floor office window.

    • Margie Albano


  • Devon Dibley

    Unfortunately, the Left won’t get that Holder was just doing what Leftists with power do. Nobody on the Right is surprised at all. We expected this from Day 1. We know what the Left is ultimately about (and it’s not helping the poor).

  • arttie

    Isn’t making a false statement to a judge a criminal matter and a cause for disbarment?

  • bkyguy

    the only reason you lay this entirely on holder is to prove further that poor poor obama had nothing to do with it

  • TocksNedlog


  • TXKracker

    Hey there is a Terrorist Training Camp Village missing it local legal counsel, Holder they want you to return.

  • disappearing moderate

    Eric Holder, under oath, replying to Rep. Hank Johnson (D. GA.):

    “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.”

  • Junie3

    It was set up last week and bloggers were there with media. I don’t trust anything about this clown house admin. There’s probably something bigger that hidden under Holder

  • Jim Denney

    NBC reported this? What’s the end game, and who is really pulling the strings?
    In other words, has George Soros decided the Rook (Holder) must be sacrificed to protect the Queen (Obama).

    • L R

      Bingo! Give the boy a prize!

    • Kaya Hund

      George Soros, of course, being the King.

  • digitalPimple

    You know it’s serious if Huffpo can’t even convince their low IQ readership that this latest event is OK.

    • Jeremy Buchanan

      guess the brainwashing failed this time.

    • jebjr

      It baffles me that the ABA has not called for Holder’s disbarment yet.

      Amazing that it takes a scandal that hits home for the MSM (and HuffPo) to take the blinders off and see what’s been going on right in front of their noses all along.

      Sarah is coming to the same realization now that many of us came to, and have been vocalizing, for many years. Holder does need to go. Good for her.
      Unfortunately, Holder does not possess enough dignity or integrity to do the right thing and resign on his own and Obama, his puppet master, won’t bring to bear his resignation or fire him.

      The saddest thing of all, and something to bear in mind, is should Holder somehow end up out of office, Obama’s replacement for him could well be even worse. Obama has exhibited quite the penchant for surrounding himself with losers.

      • digitalPimple

        Obama ‘picks’ are bottom of the barrel. No one in there right mind who would even be somewhat qualified would not touch this clown or want to be associated with his administration of fools.

        Even Little Davie Axelrod is now through. All those pats on the back for being a great political genius now are mealiness since the public now knows the election was generally fixed in his favor. Title stripped.

        ABA should never let this Mr. Holder hold another legal title for life and the man should be in prison as far as I’m concerned. That’s just me.

  • AlmaAlma

    Isn’t it amazing how to most of us it was obvious that Holder was behind all these crooked arrangements, yet no-one on the left saw it. What happened to their decency radar? They need to ask themselves that.

  • neoface

    Holder should have gone long time ago, but there is an advantage to being in bed with Oblamer. LOL!

  • gold7406

    it seems that everything we suspected about this administration is true. even the transparency was a myth.

  • Kristy Patullo

    Hard to call Sarah Palin a racist when HuffPo agrees with her. What a pickle.

    • michael s

      not hard for me.

  • vetgal1970

    Looking at the lefties that are calling for this and KNOWING the WH had them over for koolaid recently, my thought would be a big ol’ NO. Let the investigation run it’s course, let it drip drip. As soon as Holder is ‘fired’ the media will be appeased and will go right back to their seats. Better that they are are stirred up since now that they are awake and mad, they are looking around at what ELSE is going on. Besides, he can let Holder go, but guaranteed there is another JUST like him waiting in the wings.

  • sodakhic

    He needs to be frog marched out if DOJ and by the way pick up Rove on the way out if town.

  • Section 9

    They want to throw Holder under the bus because the really smart liberals know that the President approved all of this. They are trying to short-circuit the appointment of a Special Prosecutor because they know where it will lead: right to Obama.
    They aren’t stupid: they know Obama is a crook.

  • john martin

    I disagree there never has been a time when our government is so well positioned to take over the news. The Internet is too large, all news media comments too meddlesome, Barrack knows best what we should hear and see for a better country. A Government News Network with the power to edit the daily praddle would help us to focus on what’s important; green jobs, multi-culturalism, affirmative action, the war on women, homosexual rights, student loan assistance, and redistribution of wealth.

  • Raye09

    Throw them all out!

  • PiperScott1949

    Don’t feel as though you’re dirty agreeing with HuffPo since it’s the other way around: HuffPo is finally agreeing with you.

  • MominMich

    And with his usual way of responding to public outcry, Mr. Obama will put Eric Holder on paid leave until he can figure out a way to promote him.
