Hours after being held in contempt of Congress Thursday, Eric Holder skipped out of town.

To Disneyworld.

The Attorney General—who was dinged for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents related to Operation Fast and Furious—spent Thursday evening addressing a conference of Hispanic voters in Orlando, Florida at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, according to the National Journal Daybook.

Conservative site Red Alert Politics wrote snarkily of the trip: "For now, Holder should just try and enjoy his time at 'The Most Magical Place on Earth.'"

Which he just may be doing. "It's good to be here and not to be in Washington, D.C., right now," Holder said.
