Sun is oblivious on Holder [Letter]

I cannot believe anyone at The Sun wrote the editorial defending Attorney General Eric Holder with a straight face ("Holder and race," July 16). After I picked myself off the floor from having laughed so much, I had to ask, is this the Eric Holder I have seen, the bag man for Marc Rich and Bill Clinton's infamous pardon? Everyone went home wealthy after that but I never expected to see Mr. Holder on this side of the bars, much less attorney general. And then he was handed a wrapped-up case, the Black Panthers in Philadelphia were intimidating voters at the polls, but he had bigger things to prosecute. Even you had a picture of an armed Black Panther back in 2009. Even then you called it "citizens carrying loaded guns to presidential forums."

As to your complaint about President Barack Obama being abused, what you cited is nothing compared to what you heaped on President George W. Bush every day. I have liberal friends who to this day have their bathroom arranged so that every time I use it I see Calvin Trilling's book, "Obliviously On He Sails," and other anti-Bush material. You guys are a joke. You can dish it out but you can't take a little criticism.
