Tony Bennett Hits Sour Note on 9/11

♫ I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me ♫

Ah yes, Tony baby, the town where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars has certainly got your calling card.  The worn-out crooner from a better bygone age has left his hoary heart in the fetid fog of that supercilious city by the bay known as San Francisco. And like most of the mea culpa crowd inhabiting that liberal landscape of political pretentiousness, Mr. Bennett believes that the tragedy of 9/11 was through our fault, through our fault, through our most grievous fault: a predictable penance for America’s ambitions abroad. 

Bennett made the 9/11 remarks during an appearance on Howard Stern’s satellite radio program the other day.  Even Stern, the tout of tasteless and tacky talk, was clearly caught off guard and taken aback when the reinvented vocalist gave voice to the self-flagellating meme of blame us, not them

They flew the plane in, but we caused it.  Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop….But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists?  Two wrongs don’t make a right.   Online News

How unfortunate that Mr. Bennett has chosen to cap his long career by spouting off such silly pacifist views within the context of the national tragedy that is 9/11.  Me thinks this celebrated songbird has strained his brain with such cheap moralizing.  Hey Tony, what’s the problem?  Toupee too tight?

Time to bring down the curtain on this spent and tactless talent.
