Eric Holder trying to appeal that decision denying him from throwing out the Fast & Furious case

While their tremendously incompetent disaster of a healthcare rollout has President Obama more or less making up new rules and interpretations of his crowning legislative achievement as he goes along, you might think that the Obama administration would be ever so slightly humbled and taking care to rein in their usual “we do what we want” attitude on other matters — but alas, that’s still their prevailing modus operandi on their other sidelined disasters, too.

Back in September, a federal judge ruled that the Obama administration could not have the lawsuit over the administration’s executive-privilege pull in the Operation Fast and Furious case (the deadly gunrunning scandal in which the ATF pressed American gun dealers into funneling at least 2,000 weapons to Mexican straw purchasers with no practical efforts to trace the weapons) thrown out, basically because they just didn’t feel like dealing with it. The Obama administration had invented some argumentative blather about the federal courts having no basis for arbitrating the dispute because it would mean that all document fights between Congress and the administration could end up in court rather than being resolved through good-faith negotiation, or something.
