This morning, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced that the House of Representatives will proceed with a contempt of Congress vote tomorrow against Attorney General Eric Holder.

Imagine a third-rate magician with cards falling out of his sleeves and a tired old rabbit peeking out of his torn jacket pocket. He gestures wildly toward a once beautiful assistant in a tattered old costume, his eyes betraying his desperate hope that the audience won't notice the mirrors and wires. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Not-So-Amazing Obama!
