Yes I had to look up who Sirhan Sirhan is.   (I’m not sure if that makes me stupid or not)  I guess he is the terrorist who murdered Robert F Kennedy.     Either way I have no problem with this analogy.  Not sure why he had to apologize.  He wasn’t saying Cooke is as bad as Sirhan Sirhan.   Just trying to illustrate how bad the decision making process was.  Pussification of America at it’s finest.
