Mark Zaccaria: American colors don't run, but they have been fading

Mark Zaccaria beat out Kara Young 151 to 14 for Senator. Zaccaria pointed to the "grand ol' flag" behind him and said that the American colors don't run, but they have been fading. He wanted to bring brightness back to the "colors" by revitalizing the America he grew up in instead of the "catastrophic" state it is in now.

Jack Reed: Suspend aid to Egypt while military crushes protestors

Q: Why are we sending a billion and a half dollars to Egypt every year, most of that to the military, when they're crushing protestors in the street?

REED: Well, the acts of the last few days by the Egyptian military are completely unconscionable and I do believe we have to change our aid. I think also we have to have included in the legislation a national security waiver because we have to give the president not only the responsibility to deal with the government of Egypt, but also the flexibility. And we have to recognize, this is a long-term process. One of the obvious facts of a transition from authoritarian government to democracy, it takes a long time and it's not a straight line. And so, we have to have a policy that expresses our outrage really at the military, but also gives the president the tools to, we hope, engage them. I do believe that we can send a strong signal by suspending aid. The president has already suspended the F-16 transfers.
