He then lapses into the usual palaver about Second Amendment rights. While I support the Second Amendment rights of sane, rational, law-abiding citizens, I found this letter absurd." ...

"Are you old enough to remember Watergate? I am. I was ... attending Louisiana Boys State in Baton Rouge, one Summer’s afternoon, when they herded all 300+ some odd campers into the Student Union building to listen to Nixon announce his resignation. As politically-aware teens, most of us had been following the story for months, at least once it got past the confines of the WaPo’s intrepid Woodward and Bernstein. There were two phrases that resonated from the Watergate scandal: 'Follow the Money,' and 'What did you know, and when did you know it.' Which makes Eric Holder's testimony on Capitol Hill resonate with the Ghosts of Nixon, Halderman, and former Attorney General John Mitchell. Fasten your seatbelts…it's gonna be a bumpy ride." ...
