Being Eric Holder: It’s hard to learn of your own poor judgment in the morning paper

Yes, Eric Holder was beginning to wonder whether Eric Holder had made the right call. Eric Holder is typically very supportive of Eric Holder, but in this case, Eric Holder had his doubts. “Holder knew that Justice would be besieged by twin leak probes,” the Daily Beast relates, “but according to aides, he was also beginning to feel a creeping sense of personal remorse.”

That creeping sense of remorse may get worse if Eric Holder gets around to reading in the papers that Congress is investigating whether Eric Holder lied to it under oath. (If the controversy gets any worse, the Justice Department might want to assign an aide to clipping out stories in the papers about Eric Holder before Eric Holder gets a chance to read them in the morning — just to keep his spirits up.) It turns out that Eric Holder did indeed make a false representation about Eric Holder.
