Yesterday Mr. Durbin apologized for his outrageous remarks comparing American Soldiers’ methods at Gitmo to those of Pol Pot, Hitler, and Stalin. There were tears, a Lincoln quote, and sufficient repentence so he covered all the bases. It’s the best we’re going to get so let’s just drop it.
Smash and I seem to be part of a minority voice on this issue. I can understand that folks are fed up with this kind of rhetoric coming from a supposed leader of the “loyal” opposition or anyone for that matter. We can continue to pound on this, reminding everyone and their Islamofascist Assassin what Durbin said, and the two day delay before issuing a weak response. We can demand Durbin’s resignation. Hell, why not just demand his public beating and 2 days in the stocks on the Capital Steps! We may as well if we are going to demand anything else of Durbin or his party. This is all we are going to get. If we, the Republicans, continue to beat up on this *WE* will be labelled the obstructionists and we clearly are not that.
