The first draft

Scott Ott at Scrappleface has a wonderful post on the Durbin apology, in which he posits the existence of a first draft that was considerably different than what Durbin actually delivered. An example:

Durbin: "I offer my apology for those offended by my words. I promise to speak out on the issues that I think are important to the people of Illinois and to the nation."
First Draft: "I offer my resignation from the U.S. Senate. I plan to seek a non-political job so I can get back in touch with real Americans and find out why they love this country so much."

Don't miss the whole thing!
