    Wonder why Inouye called and apologized if he was aware of the scholarship? That makes as much sense as his throwing a fundraiser for that old thief in AK. What was he thinking on both counts?

    •  Who knows ?Perhaps because he's almost 84 ? (2+ / 0-)

      Maybe he's becoming forgetful ?

      I remember seeing the same reporter repeat Inouye's comments to Obama and Obama said "Shame on Danny. He knows I went there on scholarship."

      Perhaps if we remember his craven performance on the Tower Commission regarding Iran-Contra, when as the ranking Democratic member he provided cover for the Republicans to sweep the matter under the rug, it's easier to understand this.  Yes, we respect him for the same reason we respect Bob Dole, remember.

        studies will show long term exposure to ear-marks can affect the brain much like alcohol. Heavy users show signs of impair critical thinking, a disregard of ethical behavior and heightened feelings of grandeur.     Ear-mark-oholics require large numbers of enablers who support and validate this expensive addiction.  

        If a man claims to speak for god he will assure he is also gods' banker.
