I hope I'm still alive that day that Dick Durbin finds out as all of us will, that we do not, in fact, ever have the last word.
I'd also like to see him have to explain something I heard from a classmate of his about Dick's *alleged* high school polo-playing days against the locals in East St. Louis. It'd be fun to see him do it before a group like the NAACP. Can't imagine what kind of polo they used to play down there when he was young as I didn't know there were any ponies to be had even if you could find mallets, but maybe someday someone will remember to ask him about it while he's still going on trying so hard to look like he's concerned about human rights.
LOL! Good point Piasa. Traditionally polo was always a gentleman's sport so someone could also ask Durbin how he was allowed to play.
Durbin's comment to Dr. Farris "you can't have it both ways" was Senator Durbin talking to himself. Durbin conceded that U.S. law already is in compliance with everything that the UN Treaty contains but Durbin suddenly changed the subject making it impossible for Dr. Farris to expound further on that point.
The question to Senator Durbin remains "Why cede power to unelected people in the United Nations when the United States already has laws and enforces those laws which protect the rights of disabled children and adults?"
It almost makes me want to move to Illinois just to vote against Durbin the next time he runs.
