The Dick rolls on

At Technicalities, Teresa comments on her (Illinois) Senator Dick Durbin:

Can we say Linda Foley anyone? Now he's saying "if it did indeed occur" What does he mean? If he's not sure it occurred then why is he talking about it? Why did he state it as fact on Tuesday? If he's not going to compare our methods to Nazis, Soviets, and Pol Pot... why even bring them up?

The only reason is to shock people, to stick a thought in their mind where it will sit and grow. It doesn't have to be true... you only have to say it long enough and loud enough. That's the way it has worked over the years. That's how the liberals have always gotten things done. Keep repeating a lie long enough and people will start to believe.

Well, we have the internet and transcripts and we can go back and see exactly what was said by whom. Mr. Durbin has his lies repeated, but hopefully the lies won't win this time.

I find myself feeling rather slimy living in Illinois... And I am angry for the soldiers who are doing such a difficult, dangerous job. It just got a lot harder. According to Rush Limbaugh... Senator Durbin is earning high praise from al-Jazeera...

Later, Teresa calls for Senator Durbin to resign. And I agree with her, though I'd take it one step further (and I have, in an email to Senator Durbin): if he really, truly believes what he's said, he should renounce his U.S. citizenship and move to a country more to his liking.
