Hothead Holder blasts Issa as ‘shameful,’ calls conduct ‘unacceptable’ [video]

What’s got Eric Holder’s panties in a bunch? It’s Rep. Darrell Issa and his pursuit of the truth. During this afternoon’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, the scandal-plagued AG lashed out at the House Oversight Committee chair:

Wow RT @ethanklapper Holder to Issa “The way you conduct yourself as a member of Congress is unacceptable and shameful”

No kidding. And Holder’s not doing himself or his boss any favors:

RT @krobertsnj: Holder scolding member of Congress. Is this the best strategy for the Obama administration to take with Congress right now?

— Josh Kraushaar (@HotlineJosh) May 15, 2013

No. No it isn’t. Then again, this is the Obama administration we’re talking about. Sound strategy is not their forté.

Wow, Holder getting personal now.

Eric Holder just said Issa was “Shameful” for asking him a question. Maybe Issa should recuse himself.

Apparently, it’s shameful for the Chairman of the Oversight Committee to conduct … Oversight. #TheChicagoWay

In the battle of Holder vs. Issa, it’s pretty clear how things are gonna end.

Money’s on Issa over Holder.
