"Warrior Princess" On Durbin
Just when the pickings were bare going to barren, I lighted on one of the best blogs around, American Thinker and hit the goldmine. There, "America's Conservative Warrior Princess" Teri O'Brien was unloading all barrels. First, here's her summation on Durbin's sedition-fest:
We here in Illinois are used to Senator Durbin making a total fool of himself, although I must admit that his latest leaves even those of us all too familiar with his embarrassing antics stunned, horrified and humiliated once again at the thought of being represented by this pathetic leftist hack. My listeners and I call Senator Durbin “Eddie Haskell” for his nauseatingly avuncular, soft-spoken demeanor, his constant sighing expressions of sadness over the dishonesty of Republicans, and his obviously phony earnestness. He does the fake sincerity thing almost as well as Diane Sawyer.
Senator Durbin hopes this act will mask his extremist left wing views and distract from his equally appalling voting record. Just to give you an idea of what I mean, in 2000, his ADA (Americans for Democratic Action, the gold standard for liberalism) was a 95. Just to put that in perspective, Barbara Boxer got an 85. Ted Kennedy got a 90.
Also included, a parade of past Durbinisms, including, "Durbin claims the White House is out to get him," and "Durbin revealed to be a sock puppet for NARAL and People for the American Way, demands to know who let this get out."
