Holder To Lobby For 2022 US World Cup

From a delighted Associated Press:

Holder to lobby FIFA on behalf of US WCup bid

November 29, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will join former President Bill Clinton and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman on Wednesday at the final presentation to FIFA’s executive committee of the U.S. bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Holder also will meet with executive committee members, who will vote the following day

Obviously, the United States Justice Department has nothing more urgent on its plate. Or Mr. Holder has very skewed priorities.

Similarly, all the news about election rioting and cholera in Haiti must have been exaggerated, or the UN’s Special Envoy to that nation, Bill Clinton, would not be wasting his time on such trivialities.

Freeman portrayed former South African President Nelson Mandela in the movie "Invictus" about the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa.

Are they hoping the World Cup committee will be confused into thinking that this has anything to do with real life?

Australia, Japan, Qatar and South Korea also are hoping to host the 2022 tournament. FIFA will decide the same day among England, Spain-Portugal, Russia and Belgium-Netherlands for 2018.

We are so glad to see that the World Cup people plan so far in advance.

Unlike our government, which is currently operating without a budget, any unemployment extension, or any decision on the upcoming tax hikes – which would be the largest in the nation’s history.

    With apologies to Henry II – can no rid us of this troublesome priest?

    FINALLY, something for Holder to do that keeps him away from the legal system.

    Could he run bake sales? Be a cubscout leader? mow grass?

    Or since those things all require a room temperature IQ, maybe just give him free access to porno sites and an unlimited supply of Viagra.

      Pro, as far as the free access to porn and unlimited supply of viagra, it looks to me like he already has those particular entrenched government benefits. Just looking at the way he handled the whole Black Panther issue alone shows that he’s probably an expert in autoerotic asphyxiation too. The lack of oxygen to the brain would explain a lot.

    For the love of Jesus……..the AG is now touting the the line for “Sports Czar”.
    He will screw this up as well.
    OMG ….. is there no end to this monolithic tree?

    Fraternal Greetings!

    You are commanded by me to present the 2022 World Cup event in a city yet to be chosen in the United States of Obama (formerly “America”). Hail the United States of Obama! Hail the victorious Workers and Peasants! Hail the Great Hoopsman Comrade Obama!

    You are commanded to ignore the pitiful supplications of the Korean dog eaters, the Japanese blowfish fanciers, the Quateri oil renegades and the Aussie convict descenders and present, in a spirit of revolutionary solidarity and at once, the contract for the 2022 Soccer World Series or whatever its called to me at the Ministry of People’s Justice in Sorosville D.C. (formerly “Washington”).

    Do this or face the swift and righteous wrath of the People’s Justice. Hail the People’s Justice! Hail the wrathful swiftness or the swiftful wrathness or whatever seems worse! Hail me, overpromoted bigshot and busybody Eric Holder!

    Minister of Justice and Sports Czar

      ‘Hoops dingleBarry’? Very fitting. Goes with the extra 8 stitches he didn’t need.
      Again Artboy, thanks for the comic relief!!

  5. Chuckk says:

    A big selling point Holder can offer is that black activists will not be arrested or prosecuted for any crimes they may commit.

  6. artboyusa says:

    Hail Liberal! Fraternal greetings!

    Your compliment received and accepted.

    Hail the victorious workers and peasants!

    Commissar of Gags

    Monty Python Gangster character: “‘Ey Mr. Holder, nice department you got there…wouldn’t want any justice to happen to it”

  8. Rusty Shackleford says:

    And the winners are Russia and Qatar!


    Good thing Holder did “his best” thus giving it the kiss of death.
