WASHINGTON -- Frank Sinatra and Kitty Kelley are at it again, locked in a bitter squabble that has all the makings of a grudge match: pugnacious, press-hating crooner vs. celebrity-stalking biographer. He sued her even before she pulverized him in print.This time, though, their battle is being played out in the halls of the Capitol, where "Old Blue Eyes" has no shortage of fans.
