Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson: Eric Holder 'Moses of Our Time'
A reminder of why MSNBC has plummeted to last place in the cable news standings via The Washington Free Beacon:
He was responding to Bashir's mention of the mounting calls for Holder to step down.
MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson called Attorney General Eric Holder “the Moses of our time” Wednesday on “Martin Bashir.”
"I think the attorney general should step down, too", Dyson began, "off of that plateau where he resides in high principle....and whip some heads!"
In case you're not rolling on the floor, laughing yet, it gets better.
He continued, "but he shouldn't give up his office. What he should understand is that he is the chief law-giver of the United States of America, so to speak - he's the MOSES of our time - and at least for this administration."
Interesting point... Moses told Pharaoh, "let my people go..." because they had been enslaved by the Egyptians for 400+ years.
Holder said the focus on the Black Panther case demeaned "my people" when Congress asked about the Justice Dept. dismissal of the voter intimidation case.
Dyson continued, "so yes, some people want to put him outside of the arc of the legal community - that's just ridiculous! He is the bully pul-- he is in one sense, the whipping boy for so much of the frustration of the right wing."
He went on to bluster that the reason Republicans want to pursue Holder is because they lost the election.
Soooo...yeah. That's what they've got to offer in the way of news analysis over at MSNBC.
