Loretta Lynch Confirmed; Eric Holder Can Finally Take This Job And Shove It
Congratulations, Loretta Lynch! You have been confirmed as Attorney General, and it only took 166 days, which, as a student of History, you may be interested to know, is much longer than the entire lifespan of quite a few independent nations. Only two other Attorneys General took longer to confirm (Edwin Meese, under Ronald Reagan, and A. Mitchell Palmer, under Woodrow Wilson).
Thank goodness, though, the Senate finally passed that human trafficking bill that had absolutely nothing to do with your nomination, and so apparently it was OK for Mitch McConnell to let you out of the cellar. And now, we should probably expect the Senate to just start passing laws and confirming appointees right and left, unless of course Barack Obama goes and does something divisive, like appointing someone to another post that requires confirmation.
And you even got some votes from Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who probably voted for you because he felt right bad that the Democrats forced him to hold your confirmation back so long, but you know how unreasonable they can be, what with objecting to abortion provisions being thrown into a bill that absolutely had to be finished before you could take your job.
So enjoy your brand new office, once you convince Eric Holder that, yes, you really were confirmed, you actually are standing there, and he's not just having that one dream again.
Oh, also, you've been called to testify before the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee tomorrow. What did you REALLY know about Benghazi? When will you stop covering up?

His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
