The irony is thick indeed

Karl Denninger points to Attorney General Eric Holder’s deeply ironic posturing:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has told Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback that a new state law attempting to block federal regulation of some guns is unconstitutional and that the federal government is willing to go to court over the issue.

But Brownback replied in a letter Thursday that Kansans hold dear their right to bear arms and are protecting the state’s sovereignty. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a former law professor who helped draft the law, accused the nation’s top law enforcement official of “blustering” over the issue.

“The people of Kansas have clearly expressed their sovereign will,” Brownback said at the conclusion of his letter. “It is my hope that upon further review, you will see their right to do so.”

To summarize:  The Executive Branch official responsible for upholding U.S. law is appealing to the U.S. Constitution in order to overturn a Kansas law meant to protect the people of Kansas from the federal government’s violation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

One can only conclude that the Red Americans aren’t merely lawless, they’re humorless and delusional
