torturedgusStop! You’re torturing me! I know I have been droning on and one about the issue of torture and illegal wiretapping and the need for investigations, indictments, trials and punishments but it is a very important issue and I am anxious that my support for our new President will wane quickly if this issue is swept under the rug. Our country was founded under laws that are not always convenient but need to be followed. The same thugs that perpetrated the Iran -Contra scandal during the Reagan years and got away with it reappeared in later Repugnant administrations rode rough on our Constitution all over again. If the thugs who were involved in our torture policy get away with this come they will reappear when the Repugnants come into power again (and although it seem as if they will never be in power again, trust me, they will). Paul Krugman wrote a brilliant column yesterday on this issue called Forgive and Forget?

–  Speaking of torture. Our Governor, David Paterson is taking a very long time making his decision about who will replace Hillary Clinton. The longer he takes the more I get the feeling back door deals our being sealed. Anything smell fishy to anyone else?

–  Jonathan (my guy) Turley speaks about the issue with Keith Olbermann:

– Keith does a fine job of consolidating the eight years of Bush down to eight minutes:

– January 16th in 100 seconds thanks to Talking Points Memo:

– For those that like to plan ahead, here is the Inauguration schedule minute by minute. A friend of mine who is a photographer for the Associated Press will be arriving earlier than everyone as she is going to be stationed stage left on a viewing platform. I will be looking for her as well. She also gets to cover the Neighborhood Ball in the evening. Go Elise!
