Eric Holder Was Against Apologizing Before He Was For It

Does being Attorney General mean never having to say your sorry?

Lost in this week's headlines was U.S. AG Eric Holder's testimony on Capitol Hill about the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal linked to the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, a former Marine. During testimony, Holder--whose Justice Department continues to stonewall the investigation--admitted that he had not apologized to the family.

Holder seems to have no difficulties apologizing to terrorists, illegal aliens, or those engaged in vote fraud or intimidation, however. Since his remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee went semi-viral on the Internet, Holder has decided to apologize after all, according to Politico and The Daily Caller, although the letter was leaked to the media before it reach the family.

Customer Sends Message to George Zimmer of Men's Wearhouse

Men's Wearhouse commercials often feature the clothing chain's founder George Zimmer saying "You're going to like the way you look; I guarantee it." Commercials have also featured voicemail messages left for George from satisfied customers. The dissatisfied consumer in this video, however, no longer like they way he looked once the retailer went public with its support of the chaos at Occupy Oakland. So he returned his purchase to his local store. As he says "You have to take a stand, no matter how insignificant you may think it is. Take a stand."

Zimmer is apparently a big Democrat campaign donor.

Two footnotes: The manager seems like a nice person, and his nothing to do with setting corporate policy, so perhaps the customer could have been a bit less abrupt with her. Also, while this is irrelevant to his Occupy counter-protest, there doesn't seem to be any paperwork exchange before the customer left the store. Did the customer get a refund slip, cash back, or any written proof that the charge was removed from his credit card?
