Despite the many controversies that dog Attorney General Eric Holder — among them, the Fast and Furious gun-running escapades and a pass for the New Black Panthers in a high-profile voter-intimidation case — he'll remain in office for another year, Fox News reports. Oh, that should be time enough for another Holder-enabled Justice Department scandal. ... President Obama's trip to Asia last week was not without incident, as The Associated Press reports. No, he didn't bow to anyone — this time. But he repeatedly mispronounced the name of Aung San Suu Kyi (pronounced “Ahng Sahn Soo Chee”), the Nobel laureate who's regarded as one of the world's most prominent human rights activists.
