Eric Holder Bashes Sarah Palin, Dismisses Call For Obama Impeachment

Attorney General Eric Holder hit back hard on Sunday at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who recently called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.

Speaking with Pierre Thomas on ABC News' "This Week," Holder took a swing at Palin, dismissing her credentials for making such a statement.

"She wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate," Holder said. "She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why."

Palin issued her call for Obama to be impeached Tuesday in a column on Breitbart.com, comparing Obama to an abusive spouse and writing, "The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored."
