The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

I’m sorry, Eric, Janet, Hillary and Barack (no, not really)

Matthew Boyle has been relentless in his coverage of  Operation Fast and Furious, putting forth the kind of effort and doing the investigative work that should see the young man nominated for a Pulitizer.

His latest breaking story is that former Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, is now launching his own investigation.

Gunwalker just went bi-partisan.

Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman has directed the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, which he chairs, to examine miscommunication between law enforcement agencies related to the Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious.

A spokesperson told The Daily Caller Wednesday that Lieberman “believe[s] that the lack of interagency coordination along the border merits further examination, and as Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, he has directed his staff to follow up with the relevant federal agencies on that topic.”

Fast and Furious was a program of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, overseen by Holder’s DOJ. It sent thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels via straw purchasers — people who legally purchase guns in the United States with the known intention of illegally trafficking them somewhere else.

Boyle links back to an exclusive I broke at PJ Media as an example of why Lieberman may have gotten involved in the investigation.

Boo-hoo, Obama kids.

Embrace the suck.
