Dick Durbin continues to justify his name

US Senator Dick Durbin (Insulting-IL), the Senate's Minority Whip, remained unapologetc as the uproar over his insulting comments toward the US military on the floor of the Senate entered a third day.

The Chicago Tribune suggested ignoring Durbin, while other newspapers demanded his censure or ouster from the Senate.

We know what Durbin thinks about the treatment of Guantanamo prisoners. So what's the proper treatment of our coverage-hungry senior senator when he displaces the ever-present microphone long enough to insert his foot in his mouth? Ignore him. That would be torture.
We can't ignore comments like his; especially when they come from the well of the Senate -- where ostensibly you'd expect (no matter which political party the speaker hails from) the unequivical support of American troops in harm's way.

Not so from "Dick Dastardly." Durbin complained about prisoners being kept in alternating hot and cold conditions, chained hand and foot to the floor in a fetal position, and subjected to rap music.

Let's see -- while we're interrogating a prisoner, I suppose Durbin thinks we ought to serve fresh coffee and creme brulee.

I apologize to those of you reading from the great state of Illinois. Growing up in the Chicagoland area, I have a great affinity for folks there. Hopefully, you won't be duped into voting for such an idiot next time around -- even though Dickie's next election isn't until 2008.

I guess Dickie figures that he has to live down to the Howard "YAARGH!" Dean standard of statesman-like speech.

Dean is at least half-way entertaining. Durbin is just a half-ass.

Half-assed, half-witted, half-cocked and half-baked, but wholly despicable.
