Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.
Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that "more than most people, a senator lives by his words" but that "occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words." Choking up, he said: "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies."
He singled out the victims of the Holocaust, which Durbin called "the greatest moral tragedy of our time," as well as U.S. troops.

A real founding father this one is..../s.
RUSH calls him “Turban Durbin.” Fitting I say.
Little Dicky Durban can suck my ***
Durbin originally said he want the FBI agent’s email read into the record and that’s why he brought it to the senate floor.
The problem with that is, Durbin had already had it read into the record in executive session a couple of months previously.
Durbin is such a worm.
Durbin is the professional turd in the punchbowl
He is here to scuttle this thing and affix blame to Trump for his own treachery
Never forget these pigs lurking, skulking in the background, Shameless.
Now he must resign.
The concerted effort to divide America and target our President on MLK Jr day is shameful
These people could give a fig for the Blackman or the Whiteman, Its all Divide and Conquer, purely for their Communist views.
Does anyone believe they believe in 63flavors of gender? This is all devised to confuse, to tear apart the Church and the society.
Heartfelt? You need one first.. Or used to.
I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure a FReeper tagged Dicky Turban Durbin. Of course, Limbaugh used FR for show prep, as does Sean I Never Shut Up Hannity.
I remember in the old days he was Durbinladen.
Let me try that again:

I’m surprised he didn’t say “at least I never said s***hole”.
So sleazy Durban fakes crying to make it seem like he is a reputable person. We the people know the truth. He is office because of the corrupt Illinois political machine!
