Border Patrol agent Brian Terry is dead. He'll never marry. He'll never have kids. His parents had to bury him, which any parent will tell you is the worst kind of heartache.
And all we hear from the left is claptrap. There's Nancy Pelosi spouting that holding Holder in contempt is all about voter suppression. Writers Eugene Robinson and Dana Milbank say "GOP witch hunt" and "Terry's death is indeed a scandal", respectively. A man's death is nothing more than a scandal? Really?
Rep. Gerald Connelly (D-VA) accused Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) of setting up a "kangaroo court", while Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) accused Issa of "highly inflammatory personal attacks."
What makes all of this all the more disgusting is the knowledge that if this was a Republican administration, these members of congress would be trampling over each other to be the first to the microphone to scream about how horrible this is and how we need an independent counsel. The writers wouldn't need to get to the microphone, just to their computers, but they'd be saying the same thing.
A man is dead. What everybody should be saying is that we need to get to the bottom of this, regardless of whose heads end up on the chopping block. Instead, we get a bunch of people who couldn't care less.
It's simply a disgrace.
