DURBIN CROSSED THE LINE ... NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS ABOUT IT

Senator Durbin (D-IL) apologized today, as the Associated Press (AP) reports, for his outrageous remarks drawing parallels among the U.S. prison camp for terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Soviet Gulags, the Nazis' death camps, and the killing fields of the Cambodian Pol Pot regime.

His apology was directed at those who may have thought his ill-thought, mean-spirited, remarks "crossed the line."

Well, Senator Durbin, they did cross the line and without any room for doubt. You meant what you said and you're apology is belated and comes now only as a result of intense pressure directed at you.

But, alas, you apologized. Others in your Party who remained mum in the wake of your scandalous comments still have some explaining to do.
