    Dickie boy has been a leftie jaw boner for quite some time but I'm not sure what in blue blazes he was trying to accomplish with his putrid statement. Trying to slam the President, sure, that's a dem given. But comparing Gitmo to the Nazi death camps, or the gulags of Stalin, was unjust.. I want him to make public that "memo" that he was merely "reading from". I really don't see that it matters if he was quoting another or speaking extemporaniously. The comparisons between Gitmo and the others is ridiculous. The people of Illinois should call for his removal. His statements were, and will be, aiding and abeting the enemy. If it were up to me he would be drawn and quartered, but I'm old-fashioned that way.

    The 'people' of Illinois will not likely do so. In this case, I agree with Newt, the Senate shoud censure him.

    does "censure" under the Senate rules involve any bamboo being shoved underneath the perpetrators fingernails, or perhaps, on the more accomadating side, maybe a hot cinder placed in the eye? Just looking for a little education in the methods of "censure". It must be some form of torture 'cause we Americans, according to Senator Durbin, are just a bunch of heathen, torturous, Muslim right depriving, don't give a damn about the world's opinion, yahoos..

    Too bad revoking Durkin's citizenship isn't an option. Some of these people who delight in tearing down the U.S. should be deprived of their citizenship and forced to live elsewhere. Then--too late for them--they would realize what a great country the U.S. is and how, much to their regret, they failed to appreciate it when they had the opportunity. There is no perfect country, and there never will be. Forget utopia here on earth. If I lived in Illinois, I would certainly remember this "shining moment" of Durbin's when he is up for re-election.

    I wish the Senate would try such tactics, but not likely. :laugh: Scott Ott would agree with the idea though:

    There are links at the site. (BTW, this IS SATIRE!!!)

    And I know Gitmo is not the Holiday Inn down there, but I don't think anyone has died down there, have they?

    Durbin: No, that's true. In all fairness, they did not.


    So no one has died….

    no one has died there. We are providing basic care for people who are there.

    No one has died, and basic care has been provided. OK. What is the problem? Am I missing something?

    you have someone chained to the floor for over 24 hours in their own urine and feces, tearing their hair out as they go into madness

    Okay, urine and feces are gross, but 24 hours and they go mad? Aren’t these terrorists made of sterner stuff? Are they being electrocuted? Water torture? Just being chained and stinky makes them crazy in 24 hours?

    It's all the blogs!

    Darn those bloggers! You mean people can get information from other sources besides the MSM? And maybe make up their own minds about things? How dare they!
