Eric Holder, Attorney General, issued some stinging criticisms of Sarah Palin this weekend.

Palin, a failed GOP vice presidential candidate and professional media provocateur, has recently been trying to garner the public’s attention again with a series of calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.

“She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate,” Holder said. “She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

The Attorney General’s comments are part of a larger assault on the stubborn gridlock caused by congressional republicans and their obstinate refusal to work with the president, even to the detriment of the country.

“For whatever reason, [some] Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” he said in an interview with ABC. “And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that simply have not been met [in the way] they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things.”

Palin and the rest of the GOP’s woes aren’t going to go away soon. Their childish pleas and arrogant rhetoric are only amounting to division within the ranks and a distancing from the more moderate members of their party.
