Durbin's Slander

There is more on Senator Durbin's stupid statements (see the last Furo Questus) in today's NRO.
“ It is a bit like comparing Leona Helmsley to Stalin on the grounds that both had rough social manners, all the while conceding that Stalin was somewhat worse on the question of forced starvation.”
He has apologized, in a half-hearted way, for his words. But the apology shows he believes what he said, even if he no longer stands by it.

And just for your information, Sen. Durbin is the second-most senior Democrat in the Senate.

Really makes you wonder why some politicians take a political stance identical to that of Al Jazeera? Worse yet, is that we know that these knuckleheads won't be held accountable at the ballot box. The American people's own apathy may prove their downfall.
