Senator Dick Durbin went to the floor of the Senate late yesterday afternoon and claimed he wished to apologize. His words:
"Some may believe my remarks crossed the line. To them I extend my heartfelt apologies. There’s usually a quote by Abraham Lincoln that you can turn to in moments like this. Maybe this is the right one. Lincoln said 'If the end brings me out right what is set against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong ten thousand angels swarming at his right won’t make any difference.' In the end I don’t want anything in my public career to detract from my love of this country, my respect for those who serve it, and this great Senate. I offer my apologies for those who were offended by my words, I promise you that I will continue to speak out on the issues I think are important to the people of Illinois and to the Nation. Mr.President I yield to the floor."
So when is an apology not an apology at all ... when it starts out with the words "Some may believe my remarks crossed the line. To them I extend my heartfelt apologies."
"Some may believe," ... I have news for Dick Durbin ... his remarks DID CROSS THE LINE ... it isn't a matter of believing or thinking that they did ... THEY DID! End of sentence. When "the end" as Durbin quotes Lincoln (who is rolling over in his grave at being quoted in this context) makes you the number one item of Al Jazeera's hate mongering it does NOT bring him out "right." Face it Senator Durbin, you give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States of America and your remarks put our American servicemen at greater risk worldwide. There is a name for people like you, Senator Durbin. Let's hope the good and decent people of Illinois recognize you for what you are and vote you out of office the next time around.
