A JOB HALF-DONE: DURBIN APOLOGIZES - NOW HE MUST RESIGN AS WHIP

I just watched (on C-SPAN) Durbin apologize on the Senate floor for comparing GITMO to NAZI, Soviet and POL POT death camps. He was choked up - TRULY NEAR TEARS (like Voinovich!), and I think he understands he crossed the line, and has learned his lesson. GOOD.

Now he must RESIGN FROM LEADERSHIP.

After all, Trent Lott APOLOGIZED FOUR TIMES, AND THEN STILL HAD TO RESIGN AS LEADER. If Durbin fails to resign, it tarnishes the entire Democrat Party.

UPDATE: WELCOME JACKSON'S JUNCTION READERS & VIEWERS. JJ is the BEST place to see the MOST IMPORTANT video-clips. CHECK IT OUT EVERYDAY! He has the (near)-tear-soaked DURBIN apology! Go there and watch it NOW!

And WELCOME BETSY'S PAGE readers! Betsy RIGHTLY observes that McCain IMMEDIATELY absolved Durbin completely, even though the matter is NOT closed yet - and won't be until Durbin steps down as Whip. We're waiting!

Uh. What's to tarnish about the Democratic party? Even CLR won't clean them up at this point.

Durbin wont resign, because, I hate to say it, but The democrats for all their problems at least arent a bunch of wussies like the republicans.
The Republicans are the stupid and timid party, I think its awful I have to vote for them because the only other choice is the evil party.

Lott was forced to resign because Bush couldn't have a Senate Majority Leader who defended segregationist policies during an election year. Needless to say, demoted Lott isn't too happy with the White House right now..Durbin doesn't have that sort of pressure from his fellow dems or the President.

that the dems are putting no pressure on durbin says EVERYTHING you need to know about the dems: they are beholden to the loony Left base (which belives durbin's comments were ok); and they are spineless.

Some on the left may indeed be motivated by spinelessness, but others, sad to say, are motivated by their sympathy with totalitarianism and statism. With the defeat of Nazism and Communism, they will, mark my words, join Ilich Ramirez Sanchez (the Jackal) and embrace Islamism. They will discover the peacefulness and justice of Islam, and become agitators for replacing the Constitution with Shariah. After all, the Constitution is a living document, and it doesn't matter what the Framers meant; if 5 jihadi SCOTUS Justices want the Constitution to be shariahed, they'll just do it.
