“Dump Dick Durbin”

In light of the senior Senator from Illinois’s outrageous and vile remarks about our military, this has got to be the most aptly-named blog of the day.

After today’s lame “apology” attempt, Dick Durbin has shown he is a man without honor. The second-highest ranking Democrat in the United States Senate making whiny, weasely remarks like this:

…I do not even know if the interrogator involved here was an American soldier. I didn’t say that at any point. To suggest that I am criticizing American servicemen, I am not. I don’t know who is responsible for this….

And this:

To suggest that this is somehow an insult to the men and women serving in the uniform, nothing could be further from the truth. But it is no credit to them or our nation for this sort of conduct to occur.

Using doublespeak blather to cover for his obnoxious, idiotic, and near-treasonous remarks – what a blemish on the state of Illinois and the Democratic Party. Both have a chance to do something about Durbin’s political office and status, if they want to begin rehabilitating themselves with proud Americans living in the mainstream of society – especially proud Americans serving in the military and their families!

Mr. Bob has been on top of this story and leading the charge from Colorado to defeat Durbin with posts here and here. Also great posts by Captains Quarters on the Illinois Senator’s “hysteria,” “historical illiteracy,” and “irrational moral equivalency”; and by LGF on Durbin’s biggest fan base: Al Jazeera.

Do you think Durbin should make a real apology, be censured, or even be forced to resign? Make your voice heard by calling the Congressional switchboard at 202-225-3121.

    I would have voted for Al Salvi if I had been old enough. Alas, 1996 was one year too early for that, and Clinton was on the ballot anyway, guaranteeing Durbin’s win.
