Andrew Malcolm reports that Phil Spector appeared for a hearing in the retrial of the murder charge pending against him looking spiffy and sporting a “Barack Obama rocks” button. Malcolm chalks up Spector’s endorsement of Obama together with other endorsements of dubious value including those of Jane Fonda and the late Dale Lee Bishop, who was a participant in the 1998 claw-hammer homicide of an acquaintaince. Bishop endorsed Obama just before he was executed. Malcolm comments: “Bishop was under the impression that Obama opposes the death penalty, which he does much of the time but not always.”
