Remember my obsession with torture, torture memos and John Yoo, the author of of the torture program in the Bush Administration?  Guess what?  The Obama Administration is defending him in Court. Holy Bad Idea! Jonathan Turley discussed this issue with Keith Olbermann on Countdown last night. You can watch that appearance here. You can read the entire article from Turley’s blog here.

‘The Obama Administration has filed a brief that brushes over the war crimes aspects of Yoo’s work at the Justice Department. Instead, it insists that attorneys must be free to give advice — even if it is to establish a torture program.  If successful in this case, the Obama Administration will succeed in returning the world to the rules leading to the war crimes at Nuremberg. Quite a legacy for the world’s newest Nobel Peace Prize winner.’

–  Those of you that are getting upset with the Obama Administration (like me)  need to check in at the Obameter every now and again. It is in my blogroll or you can check it out here.  It is a good way to keep track of campaign promises kept and those not kept.

–  Barney Frank of MA took aim at critics of a bill  aimed at reforming the nation’s financial regulations. To those complaining about the size of the 1,279-page bill, Frank had this to say: “Now, one of the odd things is…‘The bill’s too big.’ I don’t know whether that means it was too much to read, or too heavy to carry, or some really short ones can’t see over it when they’re sitting down. I don’t know what the problem was. This notion that the value of a piece of legislation is inversely related to its size is rather odd.”

Oh boy. Tomorrow night is the first night of Hanukkah. Seen this? Orin Hatch? Oy Vey

OY. Looks like Hatch is gearing up to make a run for the Republican Presidential nomination. The song is truly bad.
