We're sorry that anything else Mr. Durbin might say about allegations of torture at Guantanamo Bay simply cannot be believed, thanks to his way-over-the-top screed. We're sorry that in his haste to score political points against the Bush administration, he chose to squander his credibility by linking U.S. troops to despots who killed millions of innocent people.Go away Dick. You're not worthy.
We're sorry that Mr. Durbin woke up this morning still the Senate's assistant minority leader - the second-ranked Democrat - and that it apparently hasn't occurred to fellow Democrats that he should step down from the leadership.
