As Twitchy told you Saturday, former Attorney General Eric Holder had the highest of respect for Joy Reid’s lame non-apology about past homophobic blog posts (that she still doesn’t remember writing):
Joy Ann Reid apology. Appropriate. Heartfelt. This unique and compelling voice for tolerance and equality should not be silenced. We learn – and change – from our mistakes. She has.

If you missed it, here was Reid’s spin disguised as an apology that won Holder’s applause:

Fox News’ Brit Hume couldn’t have rolled his eyes harder, summing it all up this way:
First she blames hackers. When that collapses, she says she’s sorry but claims she thinks she didn’t write the stuff. Leave it to Holder to pile on the praise. Good grief. https://t.co/bQlvK7eD0X

Holder has said he’s considering a presidential run, so maybe he doesn’t want to reduce the pool of potential running-mates too soon:
Joy must be his Vice P pick.

Now Eric Holder can apologize for his contempt of Congress.
