U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s got jokes

Hey isn’t that…U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, at Lewis Black’s “The Rant Is Due” show Saturday night at the Warner Theatre. After the show, according to our tipster, Holder, Malone and two friends ventured backstage to give their compliments to the Maryland-sprung comedian, whose Beltway punch lines landed on both sides of the political aisle. Backstage, the attorney general apparently even tried his hand at impersonating the famously splentic Black. Everybody really is a comedian.
