Ted Kennedy put Chappaquidick on the political map this weekend in 1969.

Here is the problem.

Yesterday, Mark blasted Pres BO and AG Holder in Obama Proving Incapable of Terror Fight:
"I can only imagine Attorney General Eric Holder choking back gasps as he heard of some detainees threatened with guns and power drills and others threatened with harm to family members.
Pardon my misdirected vexation.
I'm still pretty worked up about my countrymen dying in various ways at the hands of the 9/11 hijackers.
If, after careful evaluation of a suspect's value and demeanor, questioners thought a particularly intense method of interrogation would yield information that could save American lives, it is the height of moral idiocy to tell them not to do it.
The only thing more despicable is to prosecute them for it."
Remember my post with the picture of that man jumping to his death back on 9-11?
This whole thing is insane. It shows how much Pres BO has to placate the left that got him nominated over Hillary Clinton.
Dick Morris has a good one about BO and the left:
"After refusing to pull out of Iraq and deciding to follow the Bush timetable for withdrawing and staying in Afghanistan and likely having to beef up our presence there, liberals might be wondering why they elected Obama.
After all, his opposition to the war in Iraq and his criticism of the Bush anti-terror policies were the hallmarks of his campaign in 2008.
And, on the domestic front, Obama likely realizes that he may have to pull in his horns on health care and accept some sort of compromise which may not endear him to his constituency.
So he has decided to throw a few CIA interrogators to the wolves." (OBAMA GOES AFTER CIA TO GAIN COVER ON THE LEFT!)
We understand politcs. We do not understand "politics" that puts all of us at risk!
P.S. The public is not buying the CIA investigation:
"Fifty-four percent (54%) of all voters, however, believe the investigation of past CIA interrogation practices endangers the national security of the United States.
Only 29% say it helps the image of America abroad, and 18% are not sure." (RR)

We learned that Ellie Greenwich died:
".....Songwriter Ellie Greenwich, who co-wrote many of the classic hits of the girl group era, has died at age 68.
According to her niece, Greenwich died of a heart attack at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York, where she had been hospitalized for pneumonia.
Greenwich's songs, mostly written with her then-husband, Jeff Barry, include such '60s girl-pop standards as 'Be My Baby' and 'Baby I Love You,' by the Ronettes, 'Da Doo Ron Ron' and 'Then He Kissed Me,' by the Crystals, and 'Leader of the Pack,' by the Shangri-Las.
Her songbook also includes penning 'Chapel of Love' for the Dixie Cups and 'River Deep, Mountain High' for Ike & Tina Turner."
She was inducted in The Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 1991.
We remember Ellie with "Be my baby" by The Ronettes, "Then he kissed me" by The Crystals and "Chapel of Love" by The Dixie Cups:
Even $9 trillion might be too optimistic on current spending trends!
