THE HILL: Forty Republicans call for resignation of Eric Holder, Obama’s attorney general. “Forty Republicans sent a letter to President Obama on Thursday pushing him to ask for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation. The letter, spearheaded by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), highlights Holder’s role in the botched gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious, which was run under the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).”

The number keeps climbing. And at this point, the “botched gun-tracking operation” explanation is somewhere between most-charitable and just plain implausible.
