    President-elect Barack Obama has shown almost perfect pitch in crafting his new administration, aptly choosing old hands instead of fresh faces and bringing in the experience he lacks.

    But there is one glaring void. Obama has yet to name key intelligence officials to manage the war against terrorism.

    And one of the central reasons he hasn't come forward with a pick for one of the top jobs is because he's running into pressure from an unexpected source -- left-wing bloggers.

    John Brennan, Obama's chief intelligence adviser and anticipated CIA chief, was recently forced to withdraw his name. There was no drumbeat of opposition to Brennan from the front pages or on cable. Rather, the pick was torpedoed by the blogosphere.

    I can't imagine why anyone would want the job. As the Democrats and the Courts continue to take away the tools to combat terror it seems as though all that will be left to them is to say, "Please, don't kill us."

    That made me laugh - really laugh. I know it's not funny in reality, but I still laughed.
