Durbin Refuses to Apologize For Slandering US soldiers

Senator Dick Durbin, Democrat (of course) from Illinois says that he has no plans to apologize for the slanderous comments he made on the Senate floor Tuesday. Also, there's no word whether Durbin will submit to a psychological examination to find out if he's suffering from dementia or perhaps a brain tumor.

Here's what Durbin said Tuesday, as reported by the Washington Post:
"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime _ Pol Pot or others _ that had no concern for human beings," Durbin said.

Arguing with Durbin's statement is as pointless as arguing with any of the propaganda coming out of various al Qaeda and related terrorist websites.

The reason for Durbin's outrageous outburst may be simple. It's likely that Durbin feels overshadowed by the junior Senator from Illinois, rising star Barack Obama. Whoring up a little treason is just the ticket to grab a few headlines.

Some pertinent questions: are the people of Illinois comfortable being represented by a talking anus in the US Senate? Is there a large talking anus constituency in Illinois? Has Durbin managed to ensure himself the entire Illinois talking anus vote, or did he go too far and offend even those people who are comfortable thinking of themselves as talking anuses?

The real question: are there Americans in Illinois with the guts to start a recall movement to rid the Senate of this buffoon?
